Organic or not, always wash fruit and veggies before eating them. But first you have to buy them. There’s so much hype about how much healthier organics are. Sometimes, though, paying for organic isn’t worth the money.
A rule of thumb is whether or not the fruit or vegetable has a thick skin that chemicals can’t get through. If so, call them the “Clean Ones.” If not, call them the “Dirty Ones.” Here’s a helpful list.
“Dirty Ones” (buy organic)
- Sweet Bell Peppers
“Clean Ones” (don’t waste $$$ on organic)
- Sweet Corn
- Sweet Peas
