The Environmental Working Group is about to release their updated "Shopper's Guide to Pesticides."
This document lists fruits and vegetables based on their levels of pesticide residue.
You can download a pdf of this chart to find out how favorites like apples, spinach and potatoes -- and for the first time ever, blueberries -- rank.
Ready to eat fewer pesticides?
At EWG they always recomend eating more fruits and veggies and buying them organic whenever possible. But sometimes they're not available or are too expensive.
This is why EWG created their Shopper's Guide to Pesticides -- so you know which fruits and vegetables have the lowest pesticide residues and which you should always try to buy organic.

Making healthy food choices is simple, especially if you have the right tools to guide you down the produce aisle. I'm thankful that there is an organization like EWG that can provide this easy-to-use list so we can all shop smarter, save money and be that much more healthy -- and happy.
Yours in Health,
