Recipe of the Day or a
Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day

Do you eat pesticides in food? Many non-organic fruits and vegetables are heavily laden with pesticides. The worst of these offenders are called "The Dirty Dozen". These fruits and vegetables contain 47 to 67 pesticides per serving, according to The Environmental Working group.

It’s a healthy diet habit to always buy them from the organic section. This will limit your exposure to pesticides by up to 80%.

Pesticides in Food - Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 information

Each year a list of the Dirty Dozen (produce full of pesticides) and a Clean 15 list of produce that has the least amount of pesticides on them is published.  Find out what these are from Kerry's Pesticides in Food page on her Healthy Diet Habits website!
