Organic Produce

My adorable friend Sarah over at The Thirteenth blog shared a post that I just had to pass on! As you may already know I love Organic. I do! I do! Organic (to me) means no chemicals and all of the good stuff. Sarah put it perfectly when she said "a medical investment". When I eat a vegetable I don't want to worry about what chemicals I may be ingesting, rather, I would like to think about the fact that it is entirely good for me. 

Ahem, anyway. I am a big supporter and lover of Organic.
But what if you cannot find it! (we have all been there right?) And you are forced to settle for a non-organic....(insert dramatic music "dun-dun-duhh")

Have you heard of the "Dirty Dozen" and the "Clean Fifteen"? Those are lists of produce that have the most and the least amounts of pesticides. Essentially, the idea is that you should try to buy organic when it comes to any of the fruits or veggies on the Dirty Dozen list, but it's okay to skip the organic label if a food is one of the Clean Fifteen. 

This adorable cheat sheet is printable & easy to put in your wallet for when you go to the grocery store. 
I was pretty excited when I saw this & thought you all might like it too. A special shout out to Sarah for sharing it! <3

Here's to healthy shopping & giving our bodies what they deserve!

  1. I LOVE this! I think it's hilarious that the dirt dozen foods are crying. So cute. I have heard of this and have used it from time to time. I love the chart though and am so glad you shared it.

  2. Love the little chart! I am totally going to put it in my wallet. Thanks for sharing, Mari!
