The EWG 2013 Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 list has just been updated! Published yearly by the Environmental Working Group, the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 List has been my go-to resource on the pesticide use in produce for years.
With local produce coming into season nationwide, this is an incredibly helpful guide on what we need to prioritize only purchasing organically at the farmer’s market. (Personally, it has also influenced what I am going to be planting in our backyard garden. I’d been on the fence about potatoes…after reading this, I’m taking the leap.)
Be sure to follow this link to the EWG’s website to download a free app for your smart phone, the latest information about genetically modified fresh produce, and to learn how to avoid these frankenfoods at the big box stores. You can also read this post about the 2012 Dirty Dozen list to learn more about the Environmental Working Group and why I think their work is so important.
Other than that, enjoy your Monday! I hope your weather is as beautiful as ours!
