Super Food Saturday Clean Fifteen



"The wise man should consider that health is the greatest of human blessings. Let food be your medicine." - Hippocrates

This quote caught my eye because I get a daily electronic news letter from Dr. Josh Axe. He is a doctor of nutrition and chiropractor. His motto is food is medicine. He strongly advises to eat organic produce.

One day in his newsletter he posted the "Clean 15".  If you cannot afford to buy all organic produce this list is the fruit and vegetables least contaminated by pesticides and chemicals.


  1. Sweet Corn
  2. Avocado
  3. Pineapple
  4. Cabbage
  5. Onion
  6. Sweet Peas
  7. Papaya
  8. Asparagus
  9. Mango
  10. Eggplant
  11. Honey Dew Melon
  12. Kiwi
  13. Cantalope
  14. Cauliflower
  15. Grapefruit, Oranges, Lemons, Limes
If you cannot afford to buy all organic the clean 15 are the ones could could buy to save a bit of money.

The President's Cancer Panel put together a list of the "Dirty Dozen". This is the list of produce that is the most contaminated. Buy organic for those items on the list.

  1. Celery
  2. Peaches
  3. Nectarines
  4. Strawberries
  5. Apples
  6. Domestic blueberries
  7. Sweet Bell Peppers
  8. Spinach, Kale, Collard Greens
  9. Cherries
  10. Potatoes
  11. Imported Grapes
  12. Lettuce
The lists can change a bit every year, so do an annual check on-line for any changes.
