Which Fruits and Vegetables to buy Organic

photo-001

Hi friends,
I’m in Stockholm walking around in a slushy winter wonderland with my suede, soaking wet boots…(have to stuff them with paper every night).
When I’m here I just have to eat all the swedish delicacies such as rimmad lax, cinnamon rolls and Plop.
It’s not super easy to find organic food here.
The selection is quite limited and expensive.
That got me thinking of  “The Dirty Dozen” list.
Every year The Environmental Working Group (EWG) produce a list of all fruits and vegetables with the highest amount of pesticide residues.
You can lower your pesticide intake substantially by avoiding these.

Below are the worst offenders that you should really only buy organic:

1. Apples
2. Celery
3. Sweet Bell Peppers
4. Peaches
5. strawberries
6. Nectarines
7. Grapes
8.Spinach
9. Lettuce
10. Cucumbers
11. Blueberries
12. Potatoes

Plus 2 extra:
Green beans
Kale and Greens.
EWG also has a really good cut out list that’s easy to keep in your handbag when you go shopping.  HERE.
Happy Christmas!
