Pesticides and Herbicides are gross…

Posted on Updated on

Every day we ingest herbicides and pesticides in our bodies just from “fresh foods” unless you’re buying all organic food this will always be the case until something changes dramatically with our farming practices.

What we can do is wash our fresh fruit and vegetables in a mixture of water and raw apple cider vinegar. This removes 99% of the chemicals from the outside of the food.

All you need to do is fill up a bowl, or your sink with water and add just a few table spoons of the vinegar to the water. Wash your vegetables and you’re done! A great way to test this is with apples you buy from the supermarket. They are usually waxed to make them shiny. Washing them in this way will help to remove the wax from the apple so you can see firsthand what apple cider vinegar can do!

You can buy apple cider vinegar from the supermarket or a health food shop. My favourite is Paul Bragg’s raw apple cider vinegar.

If you have any questions please email me at yorhealth_jessica@hotmail.com. I’m also open to suggestions on topics you’d like to hear more about.

Have a great day!

Jess.
