When it comes to nutrition, its important to buy high quality, organic foods; not only to make sure you're getting all the vitamins and minerals you need, but also to make sure you're not ingesting harmful chemicals such as pesticides and other chemicals.
A good rule of thumb: the thinner the skin, the more likely chemicals have soaked into that food.
While organic foods can be pricey, below are the top 10 foods I recommend that you purchase:
5. Leafy greens (spinach, kale, lettuce)
7. Bell peppers
9. Meats (No hormones or antibiotics)
Happy Nutrition Month!
