Dirty Dozen

“Nothing will benefit human health or increase the chances for survival of life on earth as the evolution to a vegetarian diet”

Albert Einstein

How to “deep” cleanse conventionally grown fruit and vegetables covered in pesticide residues:

1. Fill a bowl with water at a rate of 1 tsp of baking soda per 1 litre of water

2. Leave fruit and vegetables in solution for 30 minutes.

3. Rinse and allow produce to dry

WHY do this? By doing this, it removes up to 96% of pesticide residue.

Less toxins entering the body means our mind and body will function more effectively with little to no effort,

The body does not have to work as hard and can instead use all that energy to heal our body.

At CleanFood, we are advocates of taking actions to prevent any health detriments, so forget intermittent fad cleanses and begin embracing mindful preparation and consumption of everything that enters our body, mind and soul !
