Hi guys, hope you are all having a good weekend!
So I did a nutrition workshop at the WKND Summer Holistic Living Market on Thursday and it went pretty smoothly! It was my first workshop for adults, which was really different from teaching primary school kids. Thank you Sang from WKND HK for the opportunity, Locofama for the venue and students from HKIS EntEx Club for your involvement! And the biggest thank you to my family and friends who came to support! I was so touched by your love!
Anyway as promised, I have attached the 2016 Shop Smart Guide. As mentioned in my workshop, there is currently not enough evidence to show organic foods are significantly more nutritious than non-organic ones. However, if you are concerned about pesticide and/or like the environmental benefits of organic farming (I most certainly do!), and of course have the budget for it, then feel free to go organic!
Going organic can be costly. To help you save a few bucks, go organic for the produce listed in the Dirty Dozen (produce with the most pesticides), whilst go non-organic for the ones in the Clean Fifteen list (ones with the least)! The extra two in the Dirty Dozen list (with an asterisk*) are those containing trace levels of highly hazardous pesticides. They did not meet the Environmental Working Group's (EWG) traditional Dirty Dozen ranking criteria but were frequently found to be contaminated with insecticides. Thus it is recommended that those who eat a lot of kale/collard greens and hot peppers should go organic instead.
Feel free to download the guide below, I made it for you guys!
Laters my friends!
