Shopping organic

If you’ve made the conscious decision to support your health, but you aren’t ready to commit to buying all organic, all grass-fed, all free range, all the time, the folks over at the Environmental Working Group have put together two lists to help ease you in:  the Dirty Dozen and the Clean Fifteen (here is also a printable pocket version!).  The rundown:  the Dirty Dozen are fruits and veggies that are most important to buy organic, because they tend to absorb high levels of pesticides, whereas the Clean Fifteen are the ones that are OK to buy traditional.  Even though I don’t always follow the list, I know that keeping these things in mind helps me make better choices in the grocery store, and I hope it helps you too!
