The Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 lists are out. If you’re trying to avoid pesticides, you’ll get the most bang for your buck if you buy the following 12 fruits and vegetables organic:

  1. Strawberries
  2. Spinach
  3. Nectarines
  4. Apples
  5. Grapes
  6. Peaches
  7. Cherries
  8. Pears
  9. Tomatoes
  10. Celery
  11. Potatoes
  12. Sweet Bell Peppers

The Clean 15 list is good to keep in mind at the store too. These fruits and veggies are the ones to save your money on (organic isn’t going to help you nearly as much):

  1. Avocados
  2. Sweet Corn
  3. Pineapples
  4. Cabbages
  5. Onions
  6. Sweet Peas
  7. Papayas
  8. Asparagus
  9. Mangoes
  10. Eggplants
  11. Honeydews
  12. Kiwis
  13. Cantaloupes
  14. Cauliflower
  15. Broccoli

I’ll keep these in mind when I’m updating my favorite deals at the grocery stores each week! Enjoy!
