Permission Granted  Not To Be Perfect!

When you shop for groceries, do you carry a copy of the  EWG's   " Dirty Dozen ," list with you? It's a list of the 12 vegetables and fruits with the most pesticides, and some people only buy organic versions of the items on the list.  A study found that specifically naming the "Dirty Dozen" resulted in shoppers being less likely to buy any vegetables and fruit

The bottom line remains: The best thing you can do is consume lots of vegetables and fruit for their health benefits, whether you choose to buy organic or not.
Quick [Veggie] Spa Tip

Did you know that cucumbers contain anti-inflammatory properties that are helpful in treating puffy eyes?

Why? B ecause the skin around your eyes is thinner than most other areas of your body. This makes this area vulnerable to damage. Whether it's from swelling or stretching, the skin around your eyes will develop fine lines and wrinkles over time. That's where cucumbers come in. Consisting mostly of water, a cold cucumber from the fridge can work wonders for that thin skin. Placing cucumber on the eyes for 15 minutes hydrates the skin and the cold temps reduce blood flow in the area. As a result, it reduces the puffiness around your eyes. Try it today!

Whether it's with food choices or anything else in life, 
instead of pushing yourself to an impossible "perfect," and therefore getting nowhere, accept "good."
