The Clean List

A few weeks back I published a list of 12 foods, coined The Dirty Dozen, with the highest levels of pesticide residue.  So the question becomes: what are the “safest” foods to eat if organic is unavailable or unaffordable? With the looming fiscal cliff, there may be even less money to spend at the grocery store. I pray our government can work together, but that’s a discussion for another day and another blog….

In follow up to above, below is the Environmental Working Group’s 2011 Clean 15 list of fruits and vegetables that are least likely to be contaminated by chemicals:

  1. Onions
  2. Sweet corn
  3. Pineapple
  4. Avocado
  5. Asparagus
  6. Sweet peas
  7. Mango
  8. Eggplant
  9. Cantaloupe (domestic)
  10. Kiwi
  11. Cabbage
  12. Watermelon
  13. Sweet potatoes
  14. Grapefruit
  15. Mushrooms

Our taxes may be going up, but….

…well not sure how to put a positive spin on rising taxes, but the brownie s’mores I’m eating right now help!
