Dirty Veggies? Easy, simple, clean veggie wash recipe!

Just cause you buy your veggies at the nice, bright, cheery farmers' market doesn't necessarily mean the vegetables are clean. Oh sure, they may be organic and locally grown, but this time I'm talking about the germy kind of clean! Yep, the same dirty hands that handle food at the grocery store pick up, examine, and put down vegetables at the outdoor market too.

I know it's hard to imagine, but some people don't wash their hands. If the idea of those people putting their mitts all over your food makes you a little queasy, try this easy produce rinse that I found on Organic Gardening. 

Gather your ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons of white vinegar
  • 1 cup of cold water

Mix in a spray bottle, spray it all over your fruits and veggies, and rinse it off. Then, eat! What could be easier?

Get out there and get healthy today, even if your veggies are dirty!
