The Environmental Working Group (EWG) released its 2017 "Dirty Dozen" list, which tests for harmful pesticides on produce. This year, DDT (a neurotoxic insecticide banned in the U.S.) residues turned up on one of our favorite green smoothie ingredients - spinach!
If organic isn't in your budget, avoid the "Dirty Dozen" and opt for the "Clean 15" instead. The "Clean 15" identifies non-organic produce least likely to be contaminated with pesticides.
