The Dirty Dozen and the Clean Fifteen

Do you ever wonder what the most pesticide laden fruits and veggie actually are? Do you think you are eating healthily just because you added some fruits and veggies into your diet. Well, check out this chart first and make sure what you are eating is not poisoning you.

These suggestions were taken from: Environmental Working Group

These were the foods recommended to have the least pesticides after testing by the EWG but I would be careful still. Check our your local sources for food, are they coming from organic farmers? The EWG listed sweet corn on their "Clean" list but after research I have found that a lot of corn is GMO.

So to be safe buy organically as much as you can. Not eveyrthing you need will always be available in the organic section, so make sure to wash yor fruits and veggies good.

Here are some environmentally friendly products below.
