I hope you have had a wonderful week! Pour Me Some Juice had a great week. We are sad that we were only able to provide you with juice one time this week. I had some meetings in Nashville discussing Pour Me Some Juice and Wholey Chow! It may be something I share with you in the near future. The Lord has been so good and I am praying He will continue to open doors for PMSJ and Wholey Chow. Thanks to all of you who have signed up for a juice cleanse or a juice program this month. Thanks to Lasha King, Amy Koerner, Jill Clark and Megan Baily who have worked very hard this past month to help provide you with yummy, raw, unheated, unprocessed, unpasteurized juice!
With all of that said…. I would like to talk about the produce we use. I have had a lot of questions about if we use organics or not. Throughout my studies, I have learned that choosing organic produce is very important when you are eating a thin-skinned piece of fruit or vegetable. The thicker-skinned produce are not as important to be organic as the thinned-skinned. The reason being, the thicker the skin, the more difficult it is for the chemicals/pesticides to reach the produce. Pour Me Some Juice uses the dirty dozen philosophy when it comes to using organic or non organic. See the dirty dozen list here: http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/summary/
All of our thinned-skinned produce is organic, and the thick-skinned is not. So I would have to say that about 85 percent of our produce is organic.
We try and buy our produce local whenever it is in season from Rose Creek Farms, Jackson Farmers Market. When it is out of season or we can’t get it in Tennessee, these are the local/non-local businesses we use: Bulk Natural Foods (Where we buy all of our organic almonds), Azure Standard (non-local-small family, Oregon based business), and McCartney Produce. I hope this helps all of you to know where we get the food you are drinking. =)
Stay tuned…. My next blog post will on the benefits of drinking your fruits and veggies
Blessings to you all! Happy week!
