Vibes from this mornings post-yoga juice refuel and market run. ✨🍏🍋
You know those little stickers on fruits and veggies? Did you know that they can tell you how your food was grown?! 🤓 When I learned this 10 years ago, I felt so excluded that never knew what those little codes meant... for my body, and for the planet. But, neither do so many others. And so, the start of my organic journey began! 🙌🏻
So here is the break down-- All fruit and veg have a specific 4 digit PLU (price lookup number) that identifies them. If there are only 4 numbers total, and they begin with a "3" or a "4", that means it is neither GMO or organic, but "conventionally grown". Aka- sprayed with herbicides, synthetic fertilizer, and/or pesticides (poisons). 🙄 So if this is your only option available, make sure to wash them really well and avoid eating the skin/peel it.😉
If the PLU is 5 digits and begins with an "8", stay away!!! That means it is genetically modified/engineered.
HELL NO GMO!!! 🚫👎🏼
What you want to look for is a 5 PLU sticker beginning with "9". This means the produce was grown organically, and not GMO! This is what you want to be juicing, and eating as much as possible. 🙂👍🏻
Hope this helps some of you babes who may have never gave those stickers a second thought, or always wondered what they meant. Obviously, the ideal solution is to buy directly from your local organic farmer. But hey, sometimes all you got is a bodega run. 💁🏻
Be conscious! Respect your body and it's home by being aware of your food choices, and their repercussions. Demanding organic, and not purchasing GMO makes a bigger impact than you could imagine. Xx 🌎❤️
