CLEAN 15

We hear a lot about buying organic whenever possible and the “dirty dozen” (the 12 fruits and vegetables that are the most highly contaminated and therefore the most important ones to buy organic).  But have you heard of the “Clean 15”?  I saw this in Dr. Andrew Weil’s new magazine publication and thought I’d share.  It’s nice to know that there is some produce that we don’t have to worry quite so much about.  I still give these a thorough scrubbing though!
