Following up on yesterday’s list, The Clean 15, the 15 fruits and veggies that typically have the lowest pesticide content (and thus should be the lowest priority for on buying organic if you don’t have the budget to buy all your items organically), I wanted to remind you of The Dirty Dozen.

The Dirty Dozen are the 12 fruits and veggies you should always try to buy organic. When you’re on a limited budget, prioritize these for organic purchases!

  1. Peach
  2. Apple
  3. Bell Pepper
  4. Celery
  5. Nectarine
  6. Strawberries
  7. Cherries
  8. Kale
  9. Lettuce
  10. Grapes
  11. Carrot
  12. Pear

I’m wondering why spinach isn’t on this list — as that’s always a huge priority for organic buying for me! Are there any other fruits or veggies you see missing?
