Eating organic doesn’t need to be as challenging as it sounds. Simple truth is that the soil the plant is grown in can make the biggest difference in nutrient quality, and potential for harmful chemicals if proper precautions are taken.

The clean fifteen is a list of foods that you can eat that don’t have to be organic because of the general nature of how they are grown.
The dirty dozen is a list of foods, you definitely want to buy organic because of their known treatment with herbicides or pesticides.
