Each year, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) releases its list of the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 fruits and vegetables. Throughout the year, I keep this list handy to prioritize which produce I buy organic (like apples, spinach and celery) and those that I buy conventional (corn, avocado, eggplant and asparagus).
The list represents research the EWG does each year to see what produce is clean (very few pesticides and chemicals) and which produce should be purchased organically, if possible.
If nothing else, it is an interesting list that you can find on EWG's website. Here's the quick rundown:
Sweet Bell Peppers
Green Beans (extra)
Kale and Greens (extra)
Sweet Peas (yay!)
Remember, if you can't find organic produce or if want to make sure your produce is clean, check out my Homemade Fruit and Vegetable Produce Wash!
Life is sweet,
