We talked last week about the fruits and veggies that are important to buy organic (because they contain 47-67 different pesticides per serving!!). This week’s post features a nicer topic, produce that’s safe to buy the conventional version.
The Clean 15 (thanks to the Environmental Working Group)
- Sweet corn
- Sweet peas
- Kiwi fruit
- Sweet potatoes
- Sweet onions
Some of these have a strong outer layer that makes them more resistant to pesticide contamination. I’ve also read that bananas are safe to buy conventionally.
