Smart Tips Tuesday

Going Organic in a small way….

Of convention produce, which has the most pesticides? As a general rule, skinless or soft-skinned fruits and veggies pose greater pesticide risk than thicker skins or peels that are not eaten. According to The Organic Center, imported berries, grapes, leafy greens and other highly perishable foods have pesticide-residue scores as much as two or three times higher that the same grown domestic foods….so it’s worth noting a food’s origin.

THE DIRTY DOZEN (best bought organic)

Celery, peaches, strawberries, apples, blueberries,

nectarines, bell peppers, spinach, kale, cherries,

potatoes, grapes (imported)


CLEAN 15 (fewer pesticides)

Onions, avocado, sweet corn, pineapples, mango, sweet peas,

asparagus, kiwi, cabbage, eggplant, cantaloupe, watermelon, grapefruit,

sweet potatoes, honeydew melon
