It was tough getting out of bed this morning. I was so cozy under the covers.
But I’m glad I finally did, because it was a beautiful sunrise.
I spent a quick half-asleep 30 minutes on the elliptical reading a magazine and watching the news. Big political day in Iowa today…..should be interesting.
I started feeling sorry for those celebrities on the cover…..I mean, we all look terrible sometimes (sick, tired, etc), who wants those pics on the cover of a magazine?! But, then I remembered that all the publicity helps their career and those pics just come with the job. No more sympathy (but I’m still glad I’m not them- ha).
I guess the holidays are really over because the street was littered with dozens of xmas trees. You can’t really see it that well in this pic, but there must have been 15 of them just on this one corner!
Home for a quick breakfast before running off to work. Egg, banana, and 2 cups of coffee with almond milk.
My fridge ispretty empty and I majorally need to go grocery shopping. This morning, I saw this list of the “Clean 15″ in my email from Dr. Weil– It’s a list of fruits and veggies that don’t need to be organic. There are organic, non-organic, “all-natural” options everywhere in the stores, but before forking over the extra cash, it’s pretty helps to know when you’re actually getting your money’s worth. I was surprised by a few on this list, so wanted to share.
Save your cash! Here’s the list of fruits and veggies that do not need to be organic:
- Sweet corn
- Sweet peas
- Cantaloupe (domestic)
- Sweet potatoes
I always buy organic cabbage, mushrooms, and sweet potatoes (i figured, it they are in the ground and i eat the skin,so that would make them full of pesticides, but apparently not) so am totally happy that I don’t have to anymore.
And just because it seems fitting, here are the “Dirty Dozen” of what to ALWAYS buy organic.
12 Most Contaminated
- Sweet Bell Peppers
- Grapes (Imported)
Did anything on the list surprise you? What produce do you always or never buy organic? AND, what did you have for breakfast this morning?
