What’s the first thing every aspiring raw foodist should do? Find an organic vegetable supplier.
Because we eat our vegetables in an almost unaltered state, we need to make sure they are as clean and chemical-free as possible. I’ve been buying produce from the organic section of the supermarket for a while now, but sometimes I wonder how authentic their organic claims are… Some say that the only way you can be sure you’re getting chemical-free vegetables is by finding a farmer/supplier that you trust.
