Hey guys, I am wondering everyone washes their veggies. I wash mine with some baking soda and water, but depending on the veggie, for example, lettuce, I just rinse it because the leaves tend to be thinner than swiss chard of kale.
I am also wondering how many of you buys non-organic produce; I try to buy organic, especially the veggies that contain the most pesticides, but sometimes they are so expensive, so I am wondering if there is a better way to clean veggies. We are still getting benefits of eating veggies even if they are non organic, right? Thanks!! Nicole
You still get benefits from non organic veggies but in an article I just read it seems they don't have as many nutrients as organic. I wash my veggies under water with no baking soda and if it's something like carrots or potatoes i use a scrubber to get off stuck on dirt.
I try to buy organic as much as possible but even I get non sometimes because of price. Mostly things like tomatoes. At Whole Foods I sometimes see them for upwards of $3.99 a pound when if I go to Safeway I can get them for around $1.89 or so.
I am also extremely sensitive to price right now since I just lost my job. But don't let the inability to buy organic stop you. Any vegetable is better than none, right?
