Fresh Veggies and Fresh Fruit…….Rinse it good!

Today I purchased all of the fresh veggies and fruit I will need to make my Green Drinks next week.  The first thing I did with all of my veggies and fruit was “rinsed everything good.”  It doesn’t make any sense to go through all the trouble of making healthy drinks if you don’t go through the trouble of rinsing the nasty pesticides off of your fresh produce.  Yeah it’s […]
