LHHG Foodi Tip: Pick fruits and vegetables that have a thick outer skin when selecting non-organic produce. However, non-organic fruits and vegetables should not be excused from your menu. Washing and lightly scrubbing the vegetables and fruits will remove pesticide residue found on the out layer of your produce. Also, buy foods that are in season, because farmers have less problems with pest and disease due to friendly growing environments and weather conditions.
