We all know we need to be selective when picking which fruit and vegetables are best bought organic so, just in case you’re not yet clued in, here’s the list of the dirty dozen which record the highest level of pesticide residue so are best bought organic.

The dirty dozen:
Apples
Pears
Peaches
Nectarines
Grapes
Strawberries/blueberries
Cherries
Capsicum
Celery
Spinach
Lettuce
Potatoes

 

The best way to avoid the nasties is by eating your fruit and vegetables seasonally. This is often better for us as the nutrients are more accessible plus it tastes better when eaten within the seasons too. We source all our produce from local; chemical free and organic farms and because of this you won’t always find absolutely everything you might find in the big supermarkets – tomatoes in July anyone?

 

Food store Aboutlife aims to provide healthy, nutritious and organic food at reasonable prices so anybody, on any budget, can choose to preserve their health and the health of the environment whilst supporting their local farming community.
