I don’t buy blueberries often, I live in Northern British Columbia (actually, it’s central if you look on the map but it’s classified as Northern) and blueberries don’t last long. There have been occasions where I would open the fridge to grab some blueberries only to see they were white and fuzzy after only two days! It’s a huge pet peeve of mine. Not only is it a waste of money but it’s a waste of good food (and a nutritious food that my four-year-old will actually eat).

I have a solution to the blueberry dilemma and I’m dying to share it with you.

Eat Cleaner.

No, I’m not telling you to “eat clean, train mean” I’m sharing a product that I personally use.

I’m a huge podcast fan, and I have listened to my girl Chalene Johnson since she began both her podcasts (Build Your Tribe and The Chalene Show). One podcast that always stuck with me was with Mareya Ibrahim. Mareya was discussing food borne illnesses and how her product (Eat Cleaner) not only prolongs the life of your produce but reduces your changes (by 99.9% of getting sick). You see, washing your fruits and vegetables doesn’t get them all that clean! I first learned about this when I was studying nutrition and tried some home remedies but never felt confident in what I was doing (it’s not like there was any science backing my DIY attempts). Science backs Eat Cleaner.

I urge you all to listen to the podcast episode, it’s eye opening.

At the time, us Canadians cannot get Eat Cleaner ). Knowing that I was heading to the US for my Disneyland trip, I reached out to Mareya’s team to ask how I could get my hands on it. I was going to stop at Whole Foods to grab a few bottles, but I was invited to Eat Cleaner HQ to meet Mareya and she graciously gave me a bottle to try. I wish I remembered to stop at Whole Foods to stock up on a few more bottles before I left California.

Update: Great news! Canadians are now able to get Eat Clean on Amazon.ca as of this week! Stay tuned. 

I conducted a little test.
