green smoothies and clean and dirty produce

I’m am turning over a new leaf in our kitchen. Tonight I learned about green smoothies (recipe follows) from a blog featured on wordpress. I went to the rawfood site and they have lots of info there, how the chimp will take a green leaf to hold his fruit and eat them together. I don’t really want to buy so much organic, although it is more and more available these days. I want to grow more greens – that would be ideal. I do love to use Basic H. I still have 1/2 gallon left of the blue and they’ve changed to clear colored a few years ago I found out. I’m thinking soaking it in Basic H solution would get most the dirt, grime, germs and pesticides off, as this stuff is on the surface. The good 15 are foods with no need to buy organic. The bad 12 would be better bought organic.

I have been using Basic H from Shaklee for about 32 years now. I usually spray or soak veggies and fruit with it. I’m wondering if I need to buy organic if I do this instead.

Fruits and Vegetables: Use ¼ teaspoon to pint of water. Wash and rinse. It removes residues of poisonous sprays and grime of handling in transportation. Also removes grit from leafy vegetables.
