I was doing some research on the Environmental Working Group Website and I came across a new list of the dirty dozen along with their list of the clean 15.
So here are the new "dirty dozen," the must buy organic foods. They have been listed in order of worst.
3. Bell Pepper
10. Grapes (imported)
And now for the "Clean 15," the foods that do not need to be bought organic, theses have been listed in order of cleanness.
3. Sweet Corn
7. Sweet Peas
15. Sweet Potato
In searching for organic produce in town I have found two wonderful sources for organic produce services, besides the weekly farmers market in the warmer months. The one I am currently using is Farm Fresh to You. They will bring organic fruits and veggies to your home. All of the foods they bring are locally grown in and around Capay, CA. You are able to choose how often you get the box and add foods to your avoid list.
Another great company is The Fruitguys. They will bring your box of organic food to your office and then you can take it home with you. I have not personally used them, as I do not have an office for them to make a delivery.
