Before the NutriBullet was introduced into my world, I really didn’t understand what organic meant and how the chemicals used to grow vegetables and fruit can affect my health. I have learned so much about what to eat, what to avoid and how to consume it from the NutriBullet websites. There are a lot of reasons to try and go organic whenever possible, but I understand that it is especially important when it is a porous type of fruit or vegetable (for example, strawberries.) So now that I am trying to do everything possible to eliminate toxins from my diet, I have to admit that I do buy mostly organic these days. The good news is that it is becoming more readily available and reasonably priced.
I do have one concern, though: Why do organic growers feel the need to place pastey, chemical-laden stickers on fruit and vegetables? It doesn’t make much sense to me. I finally gave up on the apple pictured here and cut the label off. What is the true meaning of organic if it still has chemicals glued to it?
In any case, I'm amazed by how many chemicals are used to treat the produce sold in the stores and the additional chemicals then used to make the produce stay fresher longer in order to appear more attractive!
I realize that there are reasons for the use of some agents, but I do hope that one day, growers have safer, more affordable alternatives available to them.
Lately, I have been going with 100% organic vegetable NutriBlasts and I feel the difference! Don’t get me wrong, I love my fruit and vegetable combinations, too, but this seems to be helping me reduce/eliminate the toxins in my system.
Here is one of my favorite all green NutriBlasts:
- Small handful of rainbow chard and spinach
- 1 celery stalk
- About a tablespoon of broccoli spouts
- Vegetable protein powder
- Water to MAX line
What do you think about this organic issue?
