In my transition to the traditional diet, I have chosen to invest my money in high-quality animal products. Grass-fed beef, pastured pork, raw milk, and coconut oil. This leaves little room in my budget to buy organic produce. So my dilemma is the pesticide residue I know that lingers all over my fruits and veggies. My solution is to first keep my family's immune systems very strong and encourage a lot of exercise for the purpose of detoxification. On top of that, I have started using this homemade veggie wash to break down any residue on the outside of the fruit and veggies. I know this isn't the best case scenario, but for my budget right now it is.
In a tall pitcher mix
1 cup water
1 cup vinegar
2 tablespoons baking soda
20 drops of GSE (Grapefruit Seed Extract-a natural antiviral)
Stir all ingredients. Allow it to stop foaming. Put in a clean spray bottle. Do not attempt to double this recipe. In the large pitcher the solution will rise.
To use spray veggies and fruit down well. Allow to sit for 10 minutes. Rinse with a sprayer if possible.
