If you want to stay healthy, Wash those hands! Wash em after you grocerie shop, wash em after you put the groceries away, wash em after petting your dog or pet, wash em after using the computer,wash, wash wash.........and you WILL be healthier!334
If you canít wash itÖ donít eat it. You can wash an apple, but have you ever tried to wash a cookie? In theory you can wash a steak, but you canít wash mashed potatoes. Limit the amount of non-washable foods (donít eliminateÖ just limit the amount). It sounds strange but think about it! Have Fun!
Washable: fruit, meats, whole grains, veggies, all stay in tacked when washed. Non-Washable: sodas, cake, chips, icecream. you wouldnít want to eat them after a washing. yuck! Of course there are anomalies. Hardcandy can be washed, but should you eat it? Milk can't be washed but is good for you.
When I have an urge to eat and I am only in the mood for sugary or greasy treats, I wash things. If the food makes it through the wash, then I can eat it. Imagine washed potoato chips, washed cookies, donuts and cakes. YUCK! But a washed piece of fruit or veggies? DELICIOUS!
Of course, people will say that you can wash some things that are unhealthy, but no chocolate bar stands up to a hot wash with soapy water! It is so easy and so helpful.
