What Cooksploratrice will do?
For the next month, all of my family’s fruits and veggies will be organic (Except for the 12 foods that are deemed safe by environmentalists). I will then inform you of our wellness along the way. 
I will mention the cost of the groceries as well and the difference in our well being and our sense of fullness after meals. 
Are you with me? Is anyone else willing to undertake the Conversion to Organic Challenge?
