You may be wondering what is the dirty dozen? A new action movie, a banned book? Is the clean fifteen some kind of new beauty trend? Nope – it’s a guide to help you determine when to buy organic or not.
Buy the following items organic if possible, as they have the most pesticides:
- Nectarines (imported)
- Grapes (imported)
- Sweet bell peppers
- Blueberries (domestic)
- Kale/collard greens
If you’re on a budget, you can skip organic on these:
- Sweet Corn
- Sweet Peas
- Cantaloupe (domestic)
- Sweet Potatoes
You can find the list at the Foodnews site.
