What fruits and vegetables to avoid

The Environmental Working Group EWG released the 2019 Dirty Dozen where they have listed my son’s favourite fruit, strawberries at the top of the list.

Although sometimes it can be expensive to buy organic (certified or uncertified), you can skip organic produce listed under the Clean 15 and try to aim for organic produce listed under the Dirty Dozen below:

  • Strawberries
  • Spinach
  • Kale
  • Nectarines
  • Apples
  • Grapes
  • Peaches
  • Cherries
  • Pears
  • Tomatoes
  • Celery
  • Potatoes

However it’s still better and healthier to eat fresh locally grown produce, even if it’s not organic than nothing at all.

There is nothing more satisfying and beautiful than seeing a plate full of colourful fruits and vegetables being enjoyed by the whole family.

Do you wonder what to buy at the health food store?

In the next couple of months, I will be running a Health Food Store Tour at Rouse Hill Town Centre. Register your interest today and I will contact you once dates are confirmed.
