If you are concerned by the amount of toxins and chemicals in the environment these days than one way to limit your consumption of these is to buy organic. This morning I heading over to The Organic Supermarket in Blackrock to stock up for the week. Here you can pick up a great range of organic wholefoods including fruit, veg, grains, dairy, oils, nuts and seeds.

Hannah helped me out in the shop this morning and brightened my day with her smile.

When shopping for fruit and veg it is worth keeping the ‘Dirty Dozen’ in mind. The Environmental Working Group has put together a list of the 12 types of produce which are the most contaminated and have the highest pesticide residues:

  • Peaches
  • Apples
  • Sweet Bell Peppers
  • Celery
  • Nectarines
  • Strawberries
  • Cherries
  • Pears
  • Grapes (Imported)
  • Spinach
  • Lettuce
  • Potatoes
