When it comes to the food you buy, and fuel your family with, it's always best to keep yourself informed! Whether you shop organic or conventional, decreasing toxic load from pesticides is very important for your family's growth, development, and overall health and wellness.
Thank you to the Environmental Working Group (EWG) for doing the research for us, keeping it simple, and allowing us to live a life with fewer toxins on our plates- and in our bodies!
