The Dirty Dozen


Have you ever had bad reactions to apples, strawberries or grapes? You wanna know my thoughts on it? It’s all about buying organic/pesticide-free. Those 3 are part of the dirty dozen. They are the food items with the HIGHEST levels of pesticides. And we ingest that. Ouch! If you want to live better and avoid all that cr*p, you need to buy those organic and/or stick to the Clean 15 list (those with the least amounts).

So, when you go grocery shopping, look for fruits/veggies with a PLU sticker number that starts with a 9 (5-digit) for organic for the dirty dozen, and a 4-digit number that starts with a 3 or a 4, for the clean 15 if you dont mind them having been sprayed with chemicals… DO NOT buy products with codes beginning with an 8 (GMO’s!)
