How to Use the Clean 15 List
It's Friday!! And I am so happy to finally get here. Because this is a photo to show you how my Monday started out 👉
What makes this even more crazy is that I had been up since 5:30 am, but didn't realized this mismatch until 11:30. So for 6 hours, I had been mulling about my day totally unaware 😜😀
So let's move on . . .It's time for Food For Thought Friday 🤔 I've discussed the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 Lists in other Posts. These Lists are useful if you're on a tight budget or if organic produce is not readily available to you. So here is a short & sweet example of how you can use these Lists, specifically the Clean 15.
The other day when I was at the grocery store, I noticed that organic cauliflower was $3.99. While conventionally grown was $2.99. So I bought the conventional because cauliflower is a Clean 15 veggie.
The Clean 15 is a list of produce with the least pesticide residue. So if budget or availability is a barrier to buying organic. Please know that you can buy these 15 conventionally grown items. No worries!

Conversely, the Dirty Dozen is a list of produce with the higher concentrations of pesticide residue than with other produce. So for produce on this list, it's best to buy organic.
Here's a link for the 👉🏽 Dirty Dozen
Regardless of whether produce is on the Dirty Dozen or Clean 15, if organic is not within your budget or not easily available, it is always better to buy conventionally raised produce that is fresh. And avoid fruits and veggies that are processed.
Because the most effective path towards lifelong health, is to keep eating Real Food 💯🌱🍽💚
