The other night, I was feeling like a super mom. I have a healthy, kid friendly salad on the table, sweet potatoes and chili. Yum, right?
The kids enjoy a few bites.
As I grab my first hunk of broccoli, I notice a little dirt on it. … ummm. the dirt is crawling! Upon closer inspection, I found these:
After repeatedly retching into the sink, and thorough disinfection of everything… can I lysol wipe the insides of the kids mouths?? (kidding…kinda).
Surprisingly, Caleb just loved the food bugs. He has since asked for a bug salad for each meal. Success?
This has made me want to recheck, how bad is broccoli for pesticide residue? On the Environmental Working Group‘s Shopping guide, broccoli is #28 (#1 being the worse).
While I’m having a look, the top 5 worse offenders are, Apples, Strawberries, Grapes, Celery and peaches.
So we may need to reconsider what we purchase organic… and start looking a little closer before serving those organic fruits and veggies!
