While organic food can be more expensive depending on your location, think of it as a good investment in your health. But if it’s simply not in the budget, here are a couple of suggestions:
- Consider shopping at a local farmers market for the freshest produce and get to know the growers.
- A great way to control the quality of your produce is to grow it yourself. Even container gardens grown on an apartment balcony can be quite prolific!
- A great way to remove pesticides from your store-bought produce is to use the Parcells’ Food Bath (registered with the Smithsonian Institution).
