Do you wash your fruit and veggies before you eat them?

First of all, you never know what sick fart has taken a huge dump in desperation at the grocery store and run back out to shop, without washing their hands, and touched 25 peppers looking for the perfect one.  You never know which field worker was too lazy to walk to the bathroom and just decided to pee on your grapes, celery, lettuce or strawberries.

Today at Costco I bought organic grapes and blueberries and because of how I was feeling, debated washing them before consuming them.  For those of you who know me you know that it totally out of character.  I don't like pee or poo on my food but I didn't really care.

I remembered that I bought some fruit and veggie wash so I filled up the sink and plunged my fruit in and gave it a swirl around a few time, let it soak for a few minutes and then rinsed. 

This is what is left over after buying organic fruits and veggies.  When I do it with regular fruit and veggies the amount of grime and crap that comes off is even more.  You should wash too! (I am sure most of you do.)


  1. That's disgusting. Really? You HAD to post that??? :)

  2. Manny-Is that a farmer turd in your sink?
