Some of the  healthiest foods   on the planet ,produce and live-stock that are develop through organic methods are more eco-friendly ,reducing the number toxic our land, air, and water . For this reason, a number of people are switching over to organic products in order to live greener live style. I believe we should be good steward, of  our planet ; therefore, this just another great reason for me to recommend organic foods. On these article i will discus organic produce, free range meats and wild caught sea food.

EXACTLY  WHAT IS ORGANIC ?

Organic food is defined as having been  produced without the use of artificial pesticides and chemical fertilizers. Not everything that claims to be organically grown is truly organic.

WILD-CAUGHT FISH

One wide-ranging study  of farmed vs. wild salmon recommended that people  eat farm salmon no more than once a month because the high toxin content. On average, farmed salmon have 16 times the dioxin-like PCBs found in wild salmon, the level in beef, and 3.4 times the dioxin-like PCBs found in other seafood. I recommend avoiding farmed fish altogether; stay on the wild side with  the pacific or Alaskan salmon.       .

WHEN ORGANIC PRODUCE IS NOT AVAILABLE

Organic produce may not be available in your area, ore selection may be limited or expensive. When nonorganic options are all you have here a few rules to remember purchasing nonorganic  selections of these  fruits because you remove the peel-and the toxins before eating. purchase organic. Broccoli can contain higher levels of pesticide, so if eat a lot broccoli, purchase an organically growth variety or wash it well.

1) LOOK FOR THICKER PEEL

Generally, the thicker peel or find, the safer fruit. For example, bananas have a thicker peel; therefore , it is likely that pesticides are absorbed deeply enough to reach the fruit inside. Oranges, tangerines, lemon, grapefruit, pineapples, and figs also have thick peels. You can feel pretty safe purchasing nonorganic selections because you remove the peel-and the toxins before eating.

2)   WATCH THIN PEEL

Following the peel produce have been know to carry higher levels of pesticide residue applies, bell peppers, celery, cherries, imported grapes, pears, potatoes, red raspberries, spinach, and strawberries. Since it is difficult to peel this produce. I strongly recommend organic.

3) BE CAREFUL IF THERE’S NO PEEL

What about produce that has  no peel, such as lettuce and broccoli. Enjoy your salad, but peel off the outer layer or lettuce leaves if you do not purchase organic. Broccoli can contain higher level of pesticides, so if you eat a lot of broccoli, purchase an organically grown variety or wash it well.

4 ) WASH YOUR PRODUCE

You can wash wax  off of produce with  a natural, biodegradable cleanser or pure castlile soap.

5)  SOAK YOUR PRODUCE

Another good way to remove  wax and  pesticides is to soak produce in a sink of cold water  to which you have added 1 tablespoon of 35 percent, food grade hydrogen produce (or 1 teaspoon of clorox bleach) for five to fifteen minutes. Then risen  thoroughly with fresh water.
