EWG’s Dirty Dozen

Unfortunately for us, vegetables and fruit show signes of pesticide residue. Some more and some less.

Fortunately for us, each year, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) lists the vegetable and fruit that show the highest amount of pesticide and the lowest amount of pesticides. This allows us to make best decisions on which fruit and veggies to buy as organic.

The list is called Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen.

See the list here.

5 things I learned already in 2015

This past week has been trying. It was the first week this year so far where I struggled prioritizing self-care. I started my “100 Days of Happiness” at the start of the year to learn getting into the habit of taking care of myself. For me this means ensuring adequate me-time to focus on doing things that are important to me.

How did I do so far?

Well, I learned 5 things already this year

2015 – My intentions

Not a physical change or a change of location, but a different way of thinking. I have started recognizing my values and see very clearly where my actions don’t align with my values. I feel like I am in my time of enlightenment or awakening.

Finding yoga…

I started taking yoga classes.

I love it!

Now, don’t you worry, I haven’t broken up with running. But I needed a fresh start. 2014 was a tough year (too much work, too little me-time). I got sick. I disliked my life.  Actually, I did not dislike my life. I did some amazing things in 2014, but I was stressed. And I could no longer live this way. So I sat down with myself and tried to find a way to decrease the stress I felt.
