Your Diet Determines Your Health Destiny
Your diet and food choices are the best way to optimizing, maintaining, and improving your immune system and a long-term healthy life.
Choosing high-quality, clean food doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult. Buy and consume single-item foods with few added ingredients, fresh fruits and vegetables, pastured meats, and healthy fats -- and you will be moving yourself towards the goal of a happier, healthier lifestyle.
Sourcing organic food from local producers – either at a natural grocery store, online or a local farmer’s market -- will give you the highest quality of clean and nutrient-rich produce and meat.
At Foresight Chiropractic, we focus on whole body health. We recommend buying organic as much as possible. If this does not fit into your budget or is not always available, we recommend following the Environmental Working Group list of fruits and vegetables to always buy organic.
The following foods have the highest levels of pesticide residue and are the most heavily sprayed produce by mainstream agricultural practices. The Dirty Dozen should always be purchased organic!
THE DIRTY DOZEN:
- Kale, collard, and mustard greens
- Bell and hot peppers (capsicum and chili)
If you are not always able to purchase organic, the following items have less exposure to pesticides and many have thicker skins or husks to keep them more protected. The CLEAN 15 as reported by the EWG:
- Sweet corn
- Sweet peas (frozen)
- Honeydew melon
