This is a question that I get often. Whether you spend the extra money for organic is about priorities, really. If your goal is to attain the best health possible, then you definitely need to avoid eating pesticides. Since conventional produce is covered with pesticides, then the less of it you eat, the better. I don’t mind paying a premium for organics. Even when we are strapped for cash, it is still our priority to eat organic. That’s because I don’t trust anything non-organic to be safe. Conventionally grown foods are likely to have had pesticides and herbicides on them. Since pesticides and herbicides kill bugs and living cells, then they will eventually kill me— I’m sure of that! So do your best, and if you can’t buy organic or grow it yourself, then definitely make sure anything you eat with a soft skin (apples, peaches, grapes, most greens, etc.) is organic, as these foods absorb the harmful chemicals much more easily than those with a hard skin.
Combine ingredients and blend to desired consistency. For sourcing the sweeteners, I like www.cvc4health.com for the stevia extract powder, www.DragonHerbs.com for the SweetFruit drops, and www.GoodCauseWellness.com for agave nectar.
