Today I want to breakdown the difference between the CLEAN 15 & the DIRTY 12.
These are 2 lists put out by the EWG about pesticides in produce each year.
What does that mean?
For me that means I try to buy the items on the Dirty 12 list organic when available (because their nonorganic/ conventional counterparts will have the highest concentration of pesticides).
As for the Clean 15, the nonorganic/ conventional items are safer to buy because those crops don't recieve as many pesticides during the growing process!
Let's get to the lists:
Sweet Peas frozen
Bonus: Hot peppers
Comment below which one surprises you the most from either list!
