clean 15

The rains may have jipped us, kinda, of the bounteous produce we see at the farmers markets in June…
I am so fortunate to have found a wonderful source for much of our summer produce in Loreauville. I look forward to the morning ritual of “shopping” there. The farmer is a treat within himself and his garden is unbelievable – it is so well orchestrated and an aesthetic masterpiece. He spends his day there, battling bugs, tying tomatoes, turning over peas for nitrogen, encouraging bees and ladybugs, and staying close to the earth, fulfilled and spent at 5 o’clock. I am at peace that many are connecting food to farmer and loving the link while subliminally incorporating this into their lives.
Our food is the most important thing we buy/obtain and yet it is so automated and disseminated – processed and treated. I wanted to post the EWG’s list of the “Clean 15” – here it is:

   sweet corn
    pineapples
    cabbage
    sweetpeas
    frozen
onions
    asparagus
    mango
    papayas
    kiwi
    eggplant
    grapefruit
    cantaloupe
    cauliflower
    sweet potatoes
    avocados

This is a list I posted in 2012 that was generated from the EWG (Environmental Working Group)…you can decide…
1. Onions
2. Corn
3. Pineapples
4. Avocado
5. Asparagus
6. Sweet peas
7. Mangoes
8. Eggplant
9. Sweet melon
10. Kiwi
11. Cabbage
12. Watermelon
13. Sweet potatoes
14. Grapefruit
15. Mushrooms
As you can see, there is enough good stuff here to keep you healthy and happy. As I said, this is just my humble opinion but it has to be a good idea to be mindful of what we put into our bodies – it all shows up later!
