Dirty Dozen Produce- Environmental Working Group’s 2018 “Dirty Dozen” list - the most heavily pesticide & herbicide-sprayed non-organic produce on the market. Almost 70% of non-organic samples tested positive for at least one pesticide, many are banned in other countries but not the US. I still eat all of these, But these are the foods I make sure to buy organic.
11. Sweet Bell Peppers
12. Potatoes * DDT - neurotoxin banned in US- found in 40% spinach samples. * A strawberry sample had 22 different pesticide & breakdown residues. 98% of samples of strawberries, spinach, peaches, nectarines, cherries & apples tested positive for residue of at least one pesticide. About 9 million lbs of poisonous gases injected into strawberry fields before planting- kills beneficial microbes in the soil. * Other chemicals found - permethrin (neurotoxin), carbendazim (hormone disruptor), diphenylamine & bifenthrin (carcinogens), etc
* Women who ate produce w/ high pesticide residue levels (2 or more a day) had a 26% lower risk of having a successful pregnancy
* Pesticide-laced produce also impacted male infertility markers - sperm count & quality. Sperm count for men in Western countries has dropped 50% in 40 years. * Pesticides are linked to dozens of health problems. A “Clean 15” list was also included. It lists the safest non-organic produce on the market. If you’re shopping on a budget and can’t afford all organic produce, these are the safest ones to choose. *
2. Sweet Corn*
6. Frozen Sweet Peas

Хлеб влажностью 95%. Это мой Эверест, на сегодняшний день. По рецепту и технологии Maestro Josep Pascual @joseppascualforner
A few days ago I was brought down with some serious "stuffiness." Whatever brought it on, I hope it's the last of the season!
Living like this while chasing a toddler around is no joke, so I was frantic to find some recipes to bring some relief. I landed on this vapor blend which has definitely helped me breathe easier.
If you're in need of something similar, give it a try!
Boil water and add to a ceramic mug or glass container. Let it cool slightly and stir well. add a drop or two of tea tree, RC, lemon, and peppermint. Carefully lean over mug to inhale vapors.
CAUTION: peppermint is a HOT oil and can burn the eyes, be very cautious if adding this oil. I waited a few minutes before putting my face over the vapors and was careful with my eyes.
What are your tips and tricks when feeling under the weather??
I’m definitely biased toward this most amazing upper-left corner of the country 🏔🌲
Summer body goals : a fair, rubenesque Venus 🍐✨ This will be my first summer living on a farm. I can't wait for homegrown herbs and food, catching bass in the pond, wearing sun hats, and spending time with my baby. We're gonna be some happy, chunky, farm girls 😂✨
