Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables That We Don’t Need to Buy Organic

Do you like strawberries, peaches, pears, bell peppers? Do you know why you should buy them only organic.

Summer is a time when we can enjoy lots of fruits and vegetables, and use them for natural weight loss and detox. Unfortunately, even healthy foods can be dangerous for our health. Why? All fruits and vegetables are treated with pesticides and chemicals, and some of them contain a high level of toxins that can cause cancers, allergies, hair loss, heart disease, headaches, hormonal imbalance, etc.

If you want to stay healthy, you must buy the so called “dirty dozen” fruits and vegetables only as organic or locally grown, and without fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides.

The good news is that we do not need to buy all fruits and vegetables organic, only “the dirty dozen“.

Here is a list of “clean foods” – fruits and vegetables with the lowest level of pesticides, that we can buy  in any grocery store (from Environmental Working Group – EWG), which means that we don’t need to buy at an organic market, organic shop or organic food stores.

List of the “clean fifteen” fruits and vegetables with low levels of pesticides and toxins:

  • OnionsFruits and Vegetables with Low Llevels of Pesticides and Toxins
  • Avocado
  • Sweet corn
  • Pineapple
  • Mango
  • Sweet peas
  • Asparagus
  • Kiwi fruit
  • Cabbage
  • Eggplant
  • Cantaloupe
  • Watermelon

P.S. Summer is the time to visit farmer’s markets as often as possible for really fresh produce.
