Overview

Smart Foods - Organic Diet Buddy is your essential color coded guide to fruit and vegetables, know which you should buy organic and which are safe to buy non organic. It also includes
* Farmer's Market Locator so you can include local produce in your diet
* Nutritional info - know what vitamins each fruit and vegetable have, and what diseases they are good at protecting you against.
* Daily Fruit and Vegetable requirement calculator for optimum health
* Pesticide profiles of Fruits and Vegetables

Organic food is the safer choice when it comes to buying produce, as conventional varieties often contain high levels of pesticide residues. However, not everyone can afford to go 100% organic every time they shop. This app is a guide to which fruits and vegetables you should buy organic. There are some fruits/veggies that you should always buy organic, if possible, because their conventionally grown counterparts tend to be laden with pesticides.

By avoiding the foods most contaminated with pesticide residues, consumers can reduce their pesticide exposure by 80% without affecting their budgets.

Eat better with our simple tips and a farmer's market locator so you can find the good stuff locally. Add favorites and calculate how many fruits and vegetables you should be eating daily. Let the good health begin!

************************************
WHAT ARE PESTICIDES

Pesticides are used to repel, control or kill organisms in order to reduce their negative impact on agricultural products.

Excessive pesticide contamination can be harmful to human health. Even after washing, some fruits and vegetables consistently carry much higher levels of pesticide residue than others.

Some fruits and veggies are better to buy organic, and others are safe to buy non-organic. Some fruits and vegetables require very few pesticides for growth. Some, due to tough skins or peels, absorb fewer residues.

Many fruits and vegetables, however, are sprayed with multiple pesticides, and act like sponges, absorbing residues that are difficult to wash off entirely. Peaches have very thin skin, and are hard to wash, so it is recommended that you buy organic if you can.

    Trying to get healthy

    This app is great for someone who is new to whole healthy eating. Granted it has basic fruits and veggies but it is a guideline and has really good information in it. Also it is FREE which is nice on the wallet.

    This is okay

    This app is okay if you don't know a lot about organic produce. It is basically the dirty dozen and the clean produce outlined in an app. I already knew all of this so It was a waste for me but for someone just starting out in the raw world it would be helpful.

    Just fruits and veggie

    I personally like this app for when i go shopping. Its a good reminder for which foods are clean and dirty and the vitamins and minerals. This app is NOT for weight management!

    Interesting

    To the person below me- i would be more sympathetic towards what you are receiving with this application. I have never heard of a persimmon, and maybe many others havent either. This FREE app seems to be more for those who want to improve their eating habits. What may seem simple to you may be complex to others.

    Limited

    They have a list of fruits and vegetables to pick from, but it is not that large. Something as simple as a persimmon is not in their data bank.

    Very helpful

    It is very helpful. It tells me how many cups of fruit and vegetables i need to eat everyday, which has worked. It also tells me which fruits protect what like raspberries lower the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer. It tells me about pesticides and how much of it is in the fruit, it tells me ho wto properly wash it. It is an amazing app that actually works when it comes to health.

    Nice App! FULL REVIEW BELOW

    If you are trying to lose weight, eat healthy, or improve your family's eating habits, and if you wanna do it simply, this is for you! A quick and easy-to- use organic food guide for all ages! Going to the store? Take the nook and use this app! Non-processed foods are yummy and healthy! This is what the app is trying to say. Or at least thats what I think. And hey, its free! Can't make you buy it, but i WILL recommend it.

    GREAT APP

    This app does not push the organic agenda as much as being a great informational tool. I highly recommend it and it is FREE. Wish it had a link to some receipies too.
