Buy organic. Don’t buy organic. Buy organic. Regardless of your decision, the bottom line is that eating fruits and veggies is better than not eating them at all.

I try to eat organic every chance I get in order to protect myself from the harmful pesticide residue. Luckily, I currently live in a country (Taiwan) where it is affordable and easy for me to purchase organic fruits and veggies. I know, however, this is not the case for everyone.

Buying 100% organic can be expensive, but just because you can’t always afford to buy organic, doesn’t mean you deserve to be doused with toxic chemicals.

That is why I’ve provided a list of the “Clean Fifteen” and the “Dirty Dozen” to help you decide when you can save money by buying conventional, and when it is crucial to spring the extra bucks on organic.

“Clean Fifteen”

Avocados
Sweet corn
Pineapple
Cabbage
Sweet peas (frozen)
Onions
Asparagus
Mangoes
Papaya
Kiwis
Eggplant
Grapefruit
Cantaloupe
Cauliflower
Sweet potatoes

“Dirty Dozen”

Apples
Strawberries
Grapes
Celery
Peaches
Spinach
Sweet bell peppers
Nectarines (imported)
Cucumbers
Cherry tomatoes
Snap peas (imported)
Potatoes
