Have you ever heard of the Dirty Dozen vs Clean Fifteen?  This idea has been around for a while now and was created by the EWG, who have a copyright on the terms.  It is a great reminder of which fruit and vegetables should be organic and which conventionally grown ones are ok to consume!

This is especially important when you are eating these fruit and vegetables raw or in a juice or smoothie. It is because the nutrients from the plants are being readily absorbed into your blood system and organs through your digestive system!

I still feel it is a good idea to soak your fruit or vegetables from the clean fifteen list in water with a dash of Apple cider vinegar.  This will make you feel confident that the pesticide residue and toxins have been removed or neutralised from your produce.

I highly recommend that you follow the Dirty Dozen vs Clean Fifteen method because it has been cleverly designed to give you all the nutrients you need in the safest form.  In other words, with the least amount of pesticides such as glyphosate, which is a carcinogen.

Do you soak your fruit or vegetables before consuming them?  Do you peel a lot of your fruit or vegetables before eating or cooking?
