dirty dozenI recently watched a documentary called In Organic We Trust. It explores what the word organic really means. Turns out most people aren’t exactly sure what it means aside from “fewer toxic pesticides” (which in itself is an excellent reason for going organic, in my opinion). It really made me want to do more gardening

clean 15The two lists of foods called “The Dirty Dozen” and “The Clean 15” were really helpful for me. The Dirty Dozen tend to have more pesticide residue and it’s best to buy organic. The Clean 15 have less contamination and are safer to buy non-organic.

What’s on my Food is another resource to see what kinds of pesticides are used on a large variety of foods. It’s important to know what we’re eating, don’t you think?berries
