🍓 THE DIRTY DOZEN AND CLEAN FIFTEEN AVOCADO 🥑 – The Environmental Working group put out their 2018 list of the most heavily sprayed fruits and veggies with pesticides and herbicides. – Almost 70% of non-organic samples tested positive for at least one pesticide, many are banned in other countries but not the US. – This would be great for anyone trying to save money, because you can focus on buying the dirty dozen organic, while buying the clean fifteen conventional. Although if you can still afford to buy organic everything, that would be ideal. – These chemical compounds used on our fruits and veggies have been linked to health issues all across the board. It goes back to what I mention in my stories, it’s not the 1, 2 or 10 times you do something or eat something. It’s the 5, 10 and 20 years of doing so down the line. – Now I couldn’t hold the full list 😂, so here it is! – Dirty Dozen 1. Strawberries 🍓 2. Spinach 🥗 3. Nectarines 🍊 4. Apples 🍎 5. Peaches 🍑 6. Pears 🍐 7. Cherries 🍒 8. Grapes 🍇 9. Celery 10. Tomatoes 🍅 11. Sweet Bell Peppers 🌶 12. Potatoes 🥔 – Clean 15 1. Avocados 🥑 2. Sweet Corn 🌽 3. Pineapples 🍍 4. Cabbage 5. Onions 6. Frozen Sweet Peas 7. Papayas 8. Asparagus 9. Mangos 10. Eggplant 🍆 11. Honeydew 🍈 12. Kiwi 🥝 13. Cantaloupe 🍈 14. Cauliflower 15. Broccoli 🥦 – Even though it is on the clean 15 list, corn is something I urge you to always buy organic. – If you would like to work 1 on 1 with and get a custom meal and health plan tailored to your needs, shoot me an email 📲 – #organicfood #organicfoods #fruitsandveggies #vegetables #cleanfood #produce #foodshopping
