Law of Least Effort
When you struggle against this moment, instead of knowing that this moment is as it should be, you’re actually struggling against the entire universe. Instead, you can make the decision that today you will not struggle against the whole universe by struggling against this moment. This means that your acceptance of this moment is total and complete. You accept things as they are, not as you wish they were in this moment. You can wish for things in the future to be different, but in this moment you have to accept things as they are.
Adapted from The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, by Deepak Chopra (New World Library, 1994).

Least Effort for Healthy Produce
Surely the law of least effort for chemical-free produce is to buy that which was grown organically. Otherwise, this produce wash is the best I know of for removing chemical residue. It was formulated by Susan Summer, a food scientist. It uses vinegar and 3 percent hydrogen peroxide.

First, put the vinegar and hydrogen peroxide in two different spray bottles. The technique is that you alternative spraying first vinegar and then hydrogen peroxide. Spray the alternating materials on the produce and the work surface. Rinse produce thoroughly under fresh running water before slicing.
