Eating Well Magazine (which I love, and to which you should subscribe immediately if you like healthy, tasty recipes and reliable info on all things having to do with eating well and healthfully) had a little sidebar in the May/June 09 issue about the the 12 most contaminated (with pesticides) nonorganic fruits and veggies. To wit:
The Top 12 Foods You Should Buy Organic Whenever Possible:
- Bell Pepper
- Grapes (Imported)
This plus the list of the 15 lowest-in-pesticides items are a great guide to help you figure out where to plunk your dollars down for organics. Check out the Environmental Working Group’s downloadable Shopper’s Guide (PDF) that includes both lists in a handy little wallet-sized printout – or get the super-cool iPhone app!
