Here at TIEX we want to try to make healthy eating easier for you by giving you up to date nutrition advice. Eating a wide range of fruits and vegetables is at the core of any healthy eating program. But do you stop to consider the benefits of organic produce? Unfortunately many of the pesticides sprayed onto food stay there – even after being washed. Buying organic produce is a fantastic way to cut down the toxic load for your liver. Yes, organic can be a little more expensive, but it’s worth it! Don’t worry if your budget doesn’t stretch to allow you to buy all organic produce either. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) have released a 2012 update of their guide the ’Dirty Dozen’ which list of produce with the highest amount of pesticides. This is where it’s worth spending most form your organic dollars budget.
