It’s so expensive to buy organic produce all of the time for some people so they prefer to buy just a few fruits and veggies organically. Well this guide is the perfect one for a shopper on a budget.
The clean fifteen is a list of fifteen fruits and vegetables with the lowest amount of pesticides. Of course, if you can purchase these organically then do so but if you have to skip out on a few, these are the ones!
- Sweet corn
- Sweet peas
- Cantaloupe (only if domestic)
- Sweet potatoes
The dirty dozen contains produce with the highest pesticide residue. This set of produce should definitely be purchased organically because of their high pesticide content.
- Sweet Bell Peppers
- Nectarines (Only imported)
- Bluberries (only domestic)
These lists are such a great reference! I’m a college student on a very tight budget and so are my roommates so we keep a copy of each of these lists on the refrigerator to refer back to. Hope this could help you out, have a Rudirific afternoon!
