The Clean Fifteen

Recently I wrote a blog about “THE DIRTY DOZEN”, a list of vegetables and fruits that you want to buy only organic because of their high level of toxicity due to farming or harvesting practices. NOW here are “THE CLEAN FIFTEEN”,  a list of vegetables and fruits that are good enough to eat and feel even more rewarded for their underlying health and fitness benefits, even if their not organic.
Just to recap here is a list of “THE DIRTY DOZEN” in case you missed that blog post.
  1. Apples
  2. Celery
  3. Tomatoes
  4. Cucumbers
  5. Grapes
  6. Nectarines
  7. Peaches
  8. Potatoes
  9. Spinach
  10. Strawberries
  11. Blueberries
  12. Sweet Bell Peppers
“THE CLEAN FIFTEEN”
  1. Onions
  2. Avocado
  3. Sweet Corn
  4. Pineapple
  5. Mango
  6. Sweat Peas
  7. Eggplant

  9. Asparagus
  10. Kiwi
  11. Cabbage

Regardless of the fact that these fruits are considered “clean” I would still recommend buying organic and fresh farmed vegetables or fruit from local farms in your communities.
Food can be a medicine or a poison that often you can’t see or feel. The information in this blog is to guide and encourage you to become an educated produce shopper and consumer so you can confidently live on the journey to a healthy and fit lifestyle. These recommendations are not recommended to replace any medical food prescriptions or any other dietary prescriptions given to you buy a health care provider.
I’ll leave you with one of my favorite quotes about food. “if it wasn’t here a 1,000 years ago, don’t eat or drink it.”
Best wishes to living a healthy and fit life!
All my best,
Steve
