Dirty Dozen vs. Clean 15

Organic… Organic… Organic… OMG… So Confusing!

Maybe this is new to you or it’s a refresher. I’m going to break down the Dirty Dozen and the Clean 15. 

There are foods you can get away with eating that are not organic, but there are a few you should invest in and buy organic due to the heavy amount of chemicals they are treated with. If you’re not interested in committing 100% and buying all organic, at least buy these Dirty Dozen items organic when you have the opportunity.

4) Peaches
