Do you have a link to the clean dozen (or more than a dozen) when it comes to food? I know the dirty dozen ...

Asked by flo (12974points) October 26th, 2010

1)I know the “dirty dozen” when it comes to food. But I was hoping to find a list/s that is longer than 12 items.
2)Also for the “clean dozen” (more than a dozen if possible). I went here:
but you have to click on the “play slideshow” and the ads , ...make a list. Do you already have a link where there is no video but just a long list that I can copy and paste?

I’m not sure if I understand what you mean by the dirty and clean dozen. I’m assuming you are asking for healthy foods. If so here’s a link with 100 of the healthiest foods listed and here’s a link from web md that has a shorter, but valuable list of foods that are supposed to help ward off a whole host of diseases. The “so called” super-foods.

Here’s one with 11 foods I read awhile back.

Someone posted this one on our fridge at work.

Good news, the opposite of the dirty dozen is 15 clean here

Thanks all. I find your links very helpful. But I don’t see the word pesticide in most of them. I am looking to avoid pesticides, I see I didn’t mention it either in my OP.
@YARNLADY The link you provided is the same one I posted in the OP, if you read the detail part…It requires you to “play slideshow”. Besides I would like a long list so I can just scroll up and down without being limited to the 12 top worst etc.

One of the best things you can do then is join a local CSA. For about $20–30 a week you’ll get a box brimming with organic fruits and veggies- locally-grown and in season!

Check out LocalHarvest and Farmigo to find one near you.

As an example, here is what we got this week from the 2 CSAs I belong to:
Romanesco “Veronica” Cauliflower
Fordhook Acorn Squash
Lettuce-2 heads
Stupice or Early Girls Tomatoes
Red Ruffled Pimentos
Padron Peppers
Summer Squash
Creamy Zucchini & Yellow Squash – Rutiz Farms
Red Kuri Squash and Mini Pumpkin – McGrath Family Farms
Broccoli Spigarello – Coleman Family Farms
Black Arkansas Apple – Windrose Farms
Golden Delicious Apple – Penryn Orchards
Pomegranate – Rancho Del Sol
Petite Lavender Mint – Fresh Origins
Red & Green Romaine – Go Green

Here’s a site that might be of use. It’s all about organic foods and it has lists, including shopping lists, and websites where to get coupons for all of these organic items.

Thanks all. I appreciate it. If you ever come accross a list of the best 50 fruits and vegetables least affected by pesticides, like eg. the Onion, let me know. A list everybody agrees on, that is.
