Get Fresh with Me
I discovered a great new resource the other day from our friends at the Environmental Working Group. These are the same folks who annually look at fresh produce to determine which fruits and vegetables are the cleanest and which are the “dirtiest” in terms of pesticide residues. Their “Dirty Dozen” list is a must for all us shoppers who can’t afford to buy everything organic.
The new resource is called “Good Food on a Tight Budget,” and you can download a free copy here. One complaint I hear from clients is that eating healthily costs too much. Buying everything fresh is expensive, they say, and if you can’t use it all, food just goes to waste.
But the truth is, you can eat well on a budget, and EWG has now given you a roadmap for the best ways to stretch that food dollar. They even give you some tasty recipes made from “real food.” Check it out and pass it along to your family and friends the next time someone you know claims fast food or frozen dinners are a better deal than fresh food.
