It’s that time of year again when all those yummy summer fruits and veggies come out. It is also a good remind to know which ones have the most and least pesticides. I ways try to buy organic when possible…. remember to check out your local farmers market for the best deal!

Here is a lil cheat sheet:

Yes I am alive and well. Sorry for the lack in posts. Now that school is out I should have a bit more free time in sharing with you.

On to the good stuff….

Do you eat your rainbow of colors? According to Women’s Health Magazine  69% of Americans don’t eat enough greens, 78% don’t eat enough reds, 86% don’t eat enough white, 88% don’t eat enough purple/blue and 79% don’t eat enough yellow/orange.

What do those colors mean?

Sometimes we get caught up eating the same foods over and over. Venture out there … once a week go out side of your ‘boundaries’. Summer is just around the corner so it is a good time to indulge in new fruits and vegetables 🙂
