Gorgeously Green - Part 1

So, I was watching Oprah the other day and they had Sophie Uliano on for Earth Day. She was talking about her new book Gorgeously Green. She talked all about organic produce. And gosh, she gave a scare about all the chemicals sprayed on fruit and vegetables, aswell as the antibiotics you find in meat. It has made me seriously think about going organic. But for me, when the obstacles is the lack of availability. Just where do you get organic produce from?

Without going organic, one option Sophie suggested was creating your own vegetable spray. Apparently just washing fruit and vegetables doesn't get the chemical residue off. This is her recipe:
1 cup of water
1 cup distilled white vinegar
1 tbsp of baking soda
20 drops of grapefruit seed oil (Where do you get this from???)
Spray on produce and leave for 5-10 minute before rinsing off.

Sophie also talked about chemicals in beauty products....but I'll post more on that later..

  1. SO glad we are now blogging friends! I have gone to pretty much only organic fruits and veggies now, but am going to keep your cleaning trick handy!
