Downloadable Guide of 'The Dirty Dozen'
Whenever I step into a grocery store, my mind suddenly goes blank with regard to what I need to buy. Unless I have a list, I am a lost cause! Add to that, the need to remember which fruits and veggies are on the dirty dozen list, and my brain nearly implodes. Although, I DO know that grapes are on the dirty dozen list, and now every time we're in the produce section Olivia is sure to ask, "Do they have organic grapes yet mommy?'" And sadly, no, I can't find any to save my life...
This cute and handy downloadable dirty dozen cheat sheet should go in your wallet or purse, (like it's going in mine!) for easy reference. It tells you which produce to always buy organic, and what the lower pesticide foods are. Of note: celery was ranked the most heavily pesticide treated crop of 2010 -- so make certain you buy these stalks in the organic variety!
