The Clean and the Dirty

The “dirty dozen” and “clean 15” are two lists I refer to very often. While we all know that buying organic is always best, it’s often much more difficult and not to mention (ok, I’m going to mention) costly. It helps to save time, money, and health to keep these lists in mind while shopping. Knowing which items are often pumped with pesticides and those that typically are not gives us a guide of where to spend a little extra mula and when it’s not so necessary. Here ya go, folks. The clean and the dirty…not that there are not a dozen or 15 because I’ve found some variety and wanted to include them all, regardless of the catchy rhymes.
