The Dirty Dozen
Tyler, Austin, and I had a wonderful playdate yesterday with some terrific friends. While we were eating lunch, my friend and I were talking about a subject I’m passionate about: eating organic. My friend shares this passion. Our husbands do not.
My friend and her husband have come up with a wonderful, simple compromise. They buy all foods from the “dirty dozen” organic. All other foods, they buy conventionally grown. So smart!
So what’s the dirty dozen? They’re the following foods that experts say have the highest pesticide residues:
- Sweet bell peppers
- Grapes (Imported)
Experts say the following foods are the least contaminated:
- Sweet corn (frozen)
- Sweet peas (frozen)
- Kiwi Fruit
What a simple solution!
