GO ORGANIC FOR THE DIRTY DOZEN!
Most of us know that organic foods are a great option, but it can sometimes be tough to justify the extra cost. Organic foods are great because they are grown without the use of toxic pesticides and chemicals. Recent studies show that they are higher in nutrients than conventionally-grown produce.
Fortunately, there’s a way to eat organic foods without breaking the bank! Through extensive testing, the Environmental Working Group has determined which fruits and vegetables have the most pesticides and which have the fewest. They’ve created two lists: One for the “Dirty Dozen”, the twelve most polluted fruits and veggies, and a “Clean Fifteen” list which shares the least contaminated veggies and fruits. You can cut down the number of pesticides you’re eating by 80% when you stick to buying only organically grown versions of the “dirty dozen”.
