LW - Clean Eating

Blessings, Darlings!

Bug parts! Dirt! Pesticides! Herbicides! What's in what you're eating?

Now, most of you already know this stuff: the processed foods you eat are allowed to have, and do have, some amounts of nasty stuff in them. Bug parts in your ketchup. Gods know what in your hot dogs. Pesticides and whatever in your produce.

What are the easiest ways to eat cleaner?

Buying organic is the easiest way (just because it's easier than growing your own all year round).

One of the easiest approaches is to replace the items you eat the MOST with organic versions. That way immediately most of your food is 'cleaner'.

Another way is to see what foods tend to be the most contaminated, and when you buy THOSE get organic versions. There is a list available at

What I just did - this last weekend - was split half a pastured, grass fed, no hormones/antibiotic raised steer with friends. Five of us split it, getting 1/10 of a steer each - about 71 pounds. Paid about $230 dollars for meat and processing, slightly over $3 a pound - a great price for ANY beef.

Of course, any meat eating is optional. A fact I've not convinced my husband and son of yet. I'm still working on that.

Frondly, Fern


  1. I think you should check out Eat Cleaner removes unwanted agricultural and chemical residues, waxes, and bacteria from the surface of food and are lab proven to kill over 99.9% of Salmonella and E. coli.

  2. Sounds silly to me. Most of the contamination *I* am talking about is INTERNAL to food, not external. How does it remove chemicals from the fat of the fish or meat if I bought contaminated meat? How would it remove pesticides internal to the potato or apple?

    And I'm supposed to eat food doused in something that happy kills bacteria and assume it won't be a problem for MY cells?
