This week I’ll be talking about how to easily make the switch to more natural organic foods without the stress, a Visit to the New Braunfels Texas Farmers market, and some surprising information about pesticides and HFCS.
Making the move to fresh food and sometimes be stressful, especially when not all the family members understand the full importance.
Solution is Baby steps.
Remove as much HFCS (- High Fructose Corn Syrup) as possible Sodas are the leading source of this sugar substitute
Try to eat only what’s in season ( easy at the Farmers market )
Try cooking fresh one day a week…. slowly increase frequency
Make the Farmers Market a Weekly Stop, much like it used to be

HFCS is disguised in many products, but contrary to the commercials you may have seen, it is NOT the same as Sugar. In fact, it can cause several health issues. We will discuss the article above, it’s findings, and what it means to you.
Pesticides – A Reason for Organic www.panna.org
Still don’t believe pesticides matter to you?
“93% of Americans tested by the CDC had metabolites of chlorpyrifos — a nuerotoxic insectide — in their urine. Banned from home use because of its risks to children, chlorpyrifos is part of a family of pesticides (organophosphates) linked to ADHD.”
99% of American tested positive for DDT degradants, even though DDT hasn’t been used in the U.S. since 1972. Women who were exposed to DDT as girls are 5 times more likely to develop breast cancer. www.panna.org
Many pesticides are Systemic. Systemic Pesticides work on the internal side of the plants leaving residues in the plant. Washing – not much use
