Usually every year, an updated list is released for the "Dirty Dozen/Clean 15" for fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, they don't list it by season, so there are a lot of ones to remember. And to be honest with you, I still get some confused trying to remember it.
Today, I decided to put together a good list for veggies and fruit that would be specifically for summer. Of course, I'd advocate trying to purchass as much organic as possible. But shopping this way can ease the pressure on your wallet until you can afford to buy all organic.
Sweet bell peppers
I was surprised to find that tomatoes were in the middle of the list. I would have expected them to be higher under the dirty list.
Note: This came from a list at: http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/list/
Any surprises for you?
To good health,
