Choose Your Produce Wisely with This Handy Infographic

A few weeks ago, I was contacted by Gerrick Dee, who was kind enough to pass along an infographic  he created, which goes more in depth on the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen, which I've talked about on this blog before.

It can be frustrating to buy produce, and if you're anything like me, you often feel the pressure to buy everything organic. The problem is, organic produce can be very pricey. Certainly, this depends on where you do your shopping, but for many people, the cost of buying all organic produce just becomes too much of a burden.

But don't worry! Garrick's handy infographic outlines the items that are categorized as the Dirty Dozen--or the most likely to be contaminated with pesticides--and those that are considered a part of the Clean Fifteen--or the least likely to be contaminated. Plus, it's got some great basic information on pesticides, GMOs, and where to look for organic produce when you need it.

So, take a look - and let me know what you think. Do you buy into the blanket organic and GMO-free model? Or do you shop for produce with a more discerning and price-conscious eye?
