So today I wanted to come to you all with the fruits and vegetables that you should buy organic this year. The reason why this list is of fruits and vegetables that should be bought organic is because they come with the most pesticides in the farming realm. They are typically called the “dirty dozen” but the list of fruits/vegetables can change yearly, as many pesticides affect each one differently each year. The fruits/vegetables that should be bought organic in 2014 are:
- Apples- this year they have been the most affected by pesticides and most specifically green apples
- Bell peppers
- Cherry tomatoes
This is just a short simple reminder when cooking especially for the holidays coming up, at the beginning of 2015 I should have an updated list of the produce affected during the new year!
