The Dirty Dozen!!

Have you heard of the dirty dozen? No, not the movie. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) puts out a list of our dirtiest foods. I know I can't afford to eat everything organic.....but according to EWG....these are the foods I should try to buy organic. This came from The Daily Green and here is their dirty dozen (or 14). :-)

1. Tomatoes
2. Pears
3. Peaches
4. Apples
5. Sweet Bell Peppers
6. Celery
7. Nectarines
8. Strawberries
9. Cherries
10. Kale
11. Leafy Greens
12. Grapes
13. Carrots
14. Pears
(they also add Meat, Milk, and Coffee to their list)
I was inspired by my friend, Shelly's blog. She is super organic and has great organic recipes!

My family loves smoothies....or smoovie as my son says. We buy frozen berries in bulk from Costco and that seems to be most affordable. By using frozen berries, you don't need to add ice....and it doesn't get watered down. :-)

1/2 cup vanilla yogurt (or whatever kind you like)
1/4 cup milk (or juice for a little sweeter)
1/4-1/2 cup frozen berries

Blend and enjoy!
