Do You Abide by the “Dirty Dozen” and “Clean 15″?

Facebook, Grant Family Farms

Do you care about what you’re putting in your body? Do you believe there is a link between pesticides and chemicals and the many diseases our society now faces? Well, then you may want to print these little lists out and put them near your grocery list.  The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has put together a shopping guide for you.

Eating organic can be expensive. Consider a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share from a local farm such as Grant Family Farms or the Shire CSA.
