Last week, I attended an event for Canyon Ranch in which I was able to live a Day in the Life of a guest there. I sampled tasty treats from corporate chef Scott Uehlein, figured out my target heart rate with exercise physiology director Mike Siemens, M.S., learned more about the product line själ, which is offered in Canyon Ranch SpaClub at sea, from president and co-founder Kristin Petrovich, and discovered some helpful eating tips from nutritionist Chrissy Wellington. Of particular interest were the 12 produce items, also referred to as the “Dirty Dozen,” that are most likely to be contaminated. She recommended health-conscious shoppers buy organic when purchasing the following fruits and vegetables.
The produce that causes the least amount of worry, as it is the least likely to be contaminated is the following:
Sweet Corn (frozen)
Sweet Peas (frozen)
Needless to say, I’ll be a bit more savvy next time I’m shopping the produce aisle. While organic can be a bit pricier, it’s nice to know where it makes most sense to put my money. What helpful tips have you shared with your spa-goers lately?
