Apples – Say it ain’t so!

Back on June 1, 2011 I posted a list of the Dirty Dozen – the most pesticide ladened fruits and vegetables.  The list has now been updated and apples moved from the #2 spot to the #1 spot.  Not a good move.

I love apples.  I eat 4-5 per week with a little nut butter for protein (almond butter or peanut butter).  I buy only organic apples and fortunately Costco makes it affordable with their 12-pack – approximately $0.55 cents per apple.

Here is a link to the new updated list.  Consider going organic for those fruits and veggies with the lowest numbers – particularly the first 12 aka The Dirty Dozen.    http://www.ewg.org/foodnews/list/
