Farmers Market for the Freshest Veggies and Fruits

Catherine here,

If you are gearing up for the Cabbage Soup 7 Day Diet than I wholly recommend that you visit a local farmers market. With the recent romaine lettuce scare you want to be careful and know what you are getting is safe for yourself and your family.

Not only will you find the freshest ingredients for your soup and the 7 Day Diet but you are supporting the local farmers and vendors who believe in high standards for their organic wares. Know where your food comes from – talk to the growers and artisans face-to-face.

Buy These Organic
The following should be bought organic as they have thin skins and can absorb the greatest amount of pesticides and toxins:
• Apples
• Bell Peppers and Spicy Peppers
• Celery
• Cherries and Grapes
• Nectarines and Peaches and Pears
• Potatoes
• Raspberries and Strawberries
• Spinach and Mushrooms
Foods With Thicker Skins and Less Harmful If Not Organic
• Asparagus and Avocados
• Bananas and Cantaloupe
• Cauliflower and Corn
• Kiwis and Mangoes and Papayas and Pineapples
• Onions and Broccoli
• Sweet Peas
• Cabbage (for your soup)

To your health,
Catherine
PS: If you have ever done the Cabbage Soup Diet, you already know that the soup tends to be a bit BORING and eating it every day gets rather challenging.
