The Clean 15 and the Dirty Dozen

As I prepare for my culinary adventure to Mexico next week, I am enjoying the snow storm! Sledding, warm spiced wine, and laughs with a great friend visiting has kept me busy. Tonight we are headed to the Kitchen Table Bistro for dinner. If the snow lets up, we will head to Montreal tomorrow to dine at Au Pied De Cochon.

The dirty dozen and the clean fifteen are good to program into your grocery shopping routine. Take note if you have not already. Both lists are fruits and vegetables; the difference is that the dirty dozen are pesticide heavy and the clean fifteen are safely eaten non-organic. In these times when you are watching your dime and may not be buying everything organic, this list can help guide you while grocery shopping. Print a copy and keep it in your reusable grocery bag.

4. Cherries
5. Strawberries
6. Lettuce
