A great combo – eat better and save money! Your inner guidance will help you plan on starting or building on the success you’ve already achieved with your gardening endeavors. The only sure way we can be certain of eating organic produce is to be proactive and grow it ourselves. We all know there is no way we can always dine on 100% pure, chemical-free food but, it behooves us to reduce or eliminate buying and eating toxic items whenever and wherever we can.

Read this:

“Glyphosate is widely used on genetically engineered crops, and the pesticide [sic] cannot be washed off, as it’s taken up into every cell of the plant.

“Monsanto, which manufactures and sells the best-selling glyphosate-based herbicide Roundup, has maintained that Roundup and glyphosate (the active ingredient) are harmless. BUT, Stephanie Seneff, Ph.D., a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Anthony Samsel, Ph.D., a research scientist and environmental and public health consultant, have discovered and published papers explaining the mechanisms by which glyphosate contributes to chronic disease and brain disorders such as autism, and it all goes back to the adverse effects the chemical has on the gut microbiome.”

So, wise reader, if you’re without yard space, be sure to plant some fruit or veggies in large pots and grow your own healthy food items.
