Dirty Dozen

The Dirty Dozen (no we are not convicts but these foods are!)  Sometimes purchasing organic foods is not available for certain foods at certain times.  If you choose to purchase ‘regular’ foods instead of ‘organic’ beware of the dirty dozen! The dirty dozen list is a list of the highest pesticide residues in produce.  It includes: PEACHES, APPLES, SWEET BELL PEPPERS, CELERY, NECTARINES, STRAWBERRIES, CHERRIES, PEARS, IMPORTED GRAPES, SPINACH, LETTUCE, POTATOES
The Environmental Working Group has a great article about the infamous Dirty Dozen, check it out: http://www.foodnews.org/EWG-shoppers-guide-download-final.pdf
