The Clean 15 — Fifteen fruits and vegetables that contain the smallest pesticide residues

Good news! Here are the fifteen fruits and vegetables that contain the smallest amounts of pesticide residues as tested by the Environmental Working Group. That means you don't have to be as concerned about buying organic with these fifteen. Fortunately this group includes some of my desert island foods — mangoes and avocados. Yay!

I should point out that they are referring to sweet corn — corn-on-the-cob or frozen corn but be sure and buy organic corn meal or other corn products like tortillas or tortilla chips since non-organic corn products are often made with GMO corn.
