Bye-Bye Non-Organic Bananas!

Organic Bananas

Going to the beach?  a Picnic or Camping?  or just looking for an easy delicious snack?  My latest find is ORGANIC BANANAS!

You might wonder …. why bother to buy organic bananas?  Especially if you’ve never heard anything about them being part of “the dirty dozen” – you know, the 12 fruits and vegetables with the highest pesticide residues as determined by the EWG (Environmental Working Group) each year.

However, according to the Made in Nature company,

  1. Conventional bananas are sprayed with synthetic fertilizers, insecticides, and herbicides. … The workers on many conventional plantations are often exposed to these toxins. This leads to a host of health conditions including skin diseases and kidney failure.

  2. The toxins used to grow conventional bananas are not just on the outside. They leach into the soil where the fruit is grown. So even when it’s peeled, you’re still ingesting some of them.

  3. Ongoing studies have shown a connection between pesticides in foods and their nutrient content. You guessed it–organic foods rate higher.

… and they make my new favorite snacking food!  Hooray for Organic Bananas in a Bag!!!!
