I KNEW they tasted better for some reason......! Something I learned from an Herbalist last week. ;-)
PS, this also ensures you're actually getting the nutrients from fresh fruits that you seek. If they're old, they're not really doing you much good.
They say that.....
Bananas, along with avocados, mangos, papayas, and pineapples have been found to have the lowest pesticide residue. However, apples, cherries, grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, raspberries, strawberries have very high pesticide residues so you might want to splurge on organic.
However I must not be so luck to live in a place where the non-organic bananas come in fresh. I HAVE to buy organic ones if I want them to taste like anything worth eating. I am considering apples too, if I can find the tasty varieties in an organic pretty easily. I won't eat the skin due to all the gunky crap that's all over it. If you slice it up and put it in a bowl for a few hours, it looks like sticky white glue all over the apple surface. Who wants to injest that!!!
