The Dirty Dozen & Clean Fifteen Produce Cheat Sheet

dirty-dozenI’ll be honest that on the organic/crunchy spectrum, my family is really just at the beginning of this journey. In my head, I know that there are certain foods that are more important to buy organic because of the pesticides used in growing them and others that are okay to buy conventional, but I can never remember which is which!

So, with that somewhat selfish reason in mind, I created a little cheat sheet that you can carry with you — in your purse, coupon wallet or pocket!

I’d recommend printing it on cardstock if you have it available, and it actually prints four to a sheet, so feel free to share your extra copies with family and friends.
