Healthy Saturday to all of you! Here is the list of goodies that you will need for your five-day fast;-) Shop as if you are shopping for 2-3 days worth of produce. You may have to go back to the store mid-week, but this list should hold you for a few days. Organic is best, but do not worry if you can not get organic, just get the best looking locally grown fruits and veggies. You can mix white vinegar and water in a spray bottle to make a great homemade veggie wash. See below for directions on how to use wash. Or you can buy, Veggie Wash, from the store. Health is Wealth!!!

DIY Veggie and Fruit Wash
For Hard-skinned Fruits and Vegetables:
1. Fill a spray bottle with equal parts white vinegar and water.
2. Then, spray the solution onto your fruits and vegetables; rub it in; and rinse.
For Soft-skinned Fruits and Vegetables:
1. Fill a bowl with equal parts white vinegar and water.
2. Then, soak your fruits and vegetables in the solution for a minute or two, and rinse.
Why This Works
The acetic acid in vinegar kills bacteria and helps to dissolve the wax and pesticide residues found on the skins of many fruits and vegetables.
