SWEET ONIONS, #1
NEW updated "CLEAN 15" list of fruits and vegetables with the lowest amount of pesticides:
Onions, Sweet Corn, Pineapples, Avocado, Asparagus, Sweet Peas, Mangoes, Eggplant, Cantaloupe (domestic), Kiwi, Cabbage, Watermelon, Sweet Potatoes, Grapefruit, Mushrooms.*
These you can buy locally or in your stores and feel comfortable feeding them to your family. No need to buy organic. The key is their skins are thicker, protecting them from absorption. Of these, you'll probably need to make an extra effort to learn how to cook delicious asparagus and eggplant. Young thin asparagus are more tender and less bitter. Lightly steam them, chop into less than one inch cuttings, serve with sauteed garlic, lemon juice and sea salt. Eggplant parmesan was a big hit with the Kid Kritics. Find that recipe on www.KidKritics.com. Eat Clean!
