Now that I have a plan for “Boston,” I am moving on to something near and dear to my heart~FOOD!
I love food; I love to create new recipes (even though I rarely know exactly what I put into the concoction)… I love knowing that what I eat and my family eats is healthy and whole and benefits not only my body, but also my environment.
I focus on eating locally produced foods (whenever possible) close to the ground,(as often as possible) and organic (when necessary.)
EWG produces a Shopper’s Guide to Pesticides in Produce™
The “dirtiest” foods are the ones most likely to be contaminated with pesticides. EWG dubs these The Dirty Dozen . At the other end of the spectrum are the Clean Fifteen. These are the foods whose inedible peel makes them less likely to be contaminated with pesticides.
This inspired me I’ve never farmed nor tried, I was intrigued. While playing around on a website, I came across the story of a family and their experiences with eating real food for 100 days. At first, I thought, “what is the big deal??? I do that all the time…” But, then I read their website and a whole new understanding came to me.
This is, indeed, something I have never tried!
I have made the 10 day pledge! It will take a few days to get my brain and pantry totally wrapped around it, and then I am going on a three day silent prayer retreat. My first of the ten days will be the day after I return from retreat. Hmmm…that will be next Wednesday!
Check out their website. Will you challenge yourself to eat 10 days of real food with me?
