Friday Foodspiration: Strawberry Pecan Crisp


What are your thoughts on organic versus conventional produce?

I would love to buy all organic but it doesn’t always fit in the budget. I pick and choose my organic purchases based on the Environmental Working Group’s “Clean 15” and “Dirty Dozen”. The list published each year indicates foods most likely to be contaminated with pesticides and those most likely to be cleaner.

With strawberries topping the dirty dozen list this past year, I try to always buy organic when it comes to my berries. Unfortunately, that often means waiting on a sale. Luckily, strawberries are in season and organic ones were an excellent price this week. If I want to make this recipe other times, I will opt for frozen organic strawberries, but allow them to thaw completely and drain well.

I hope you enjoy this gluten free, grain free, dairy free, no added sugar strawberry pecan crisp as much as we did!
