Cleanest Fruits & Veggies

On Tuesday I wrote about the infamous “Dirty Dozen” - the list of most contaminated fruits and veggies. Today I will tell you about the “Clean Fifteen” - the least contaminated fruits and veggies. I do my best to go organic as often as I can, especially when I am making smoothies and juicing the fruits and veggies in question. I can actually taste the difference between organic and non-organic produce. I can taste the chemicals - it is an awful, bitter taste!! (you should see the face I’m making as I’m writing this!! Not pretty!) You could probably taste the difference too! And you will taste it even more once your body has been exorcised of all the unhealthy chemicals its been exposed to! That’s the wonderful thing about clean eating, your taste buds will reawaken and you will be able to enjoy so many more tastes and textures than you did before.. (and your body will be healthier and look way better; how does it get better than that?? ;))

Clean Fifteen

  1. Avocados

  2. Sweet Corn

  3. Pineapples

  4. Cabbage

  5. Sweet Peas (frozen)

  6. Onions

  7. Asparagus

  8. Mangoes

  9. Papayas

  10. Kiwis

  11. Eggplant

  12. Grapefruit

  13. Cantaloupe

  14. Cauliflower

  15. Sweet Potatoes

I can’t tell you how happy I am that Avocados are on this list(they were the cleanest, with only 1% of samples showing pesticides)! I live for these little guys! Sweet corn has other issues...most corn in the US is Genetically Modified so I avoid them. Pineapples (89% of samples had no pesticides) are my Go-To fruit when juicing, especially after the rare occasions when I have a steak. The enzymes in pineapples (raw, fresh pineapples) help break down the protein and makes digestion much easier. This is particularly important if your blood type is A, like me, or AB.
