The Phone Call That Made My Green Smoothie Taste Better Than Ever
The phone rang, it was my sister and she had unfortunate news.
My father, long term smoker, drinker, and fast food eater, had cancer. Again.
He beat odds with kidney cancer 2 years ago but now, now it was in his lung. An organ essential to life and an organ so close to the heart.

Do I Have to Eat 100% Organic? What If I Can’t Afford It?
by Tracy Neely
I recently had a conversation with a friend about the issue of where our organic fruits and vegetables come from. I started thinking about how I could openly talk about this issue with friends and family in a way where they would not feel offended or embarrassed at their lack of knowledge.
I decided to purchase wallet size copies of the “Dirty Dozen” put out by the Environmental Working Group. This is a guide that features the 12 fruits and veggies with the most and least pesticides. I thought this would be a good way to start off a friendly conversation that would be non-threatening and at the same time, would give great information to friends, family and people that I meet in passing.
