The 2011 Clean Fifteen: 15 foods you can skimp organics on

Just as there’s a dirty dozen list of fresh produce that has been heavily sprayed with pesticides (see Tuesday’s post), so too there is a clean fifteen list of foods that are low in contaminants.

If you’re going to save a few dollars and pick and choose which fruit and vegetables you buy organic, then this is the list to start with.

In fact, if you chose your daily 5 servings of fruit and vegetables from the clean fifteen (vs 5 from the dirty dozen), you would reduce the amount of pesticides you ingest by 92%.

As with the dirty dozen, the list is revisited each year by the Environmental Working Group based on the pesticide data from the US Department of Agriculture.

Clean Fifteen 2011

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

  1. Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar
    one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback?
    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything
    you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.

    it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants
    to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell
    someone!
