At My Passion 4 Health we commonly recommend changing diets to include greater amounts of fruits and vegetables.  In particular we recommend using a Vitamax to “juice” raw fruits and vegetables as a way to increase nutrients and alkalize the body.  We always recommend organic because there is no point in trying to improve your health while simultaneously ingesting greatly increased amounts of pesticides.   Yet eating only organic can be expensive – in fact this summer we ended up buying an organic watermelon at the cost of 26 dollars, which seemed a little much !!!

Here are the most  recent guidelines as to which produce contains the least amount of pesticides  and which contains the most. Apples and celery are the most “dirty” while it turns out watermelons are fairly clean.  Of course the safest, and most tasty, produce is that you grow yourself or are gifted from friend’s home garden.
