The Clean Fifteen & Dirty Dozen (2020 Edition)

We have been spending more time at home, which means we're spending more time in the kitchen. We love making #FoodWithLove through easy, versatile, and healthy recipes always full of flavor and nutrition.
Making your own food gives you the opportunity to know exactly what’s in it. We have full control of our ingredients. It doesn't have to be complicated, expensive, or overwhelming!
Aim for a balance of your favorite pantry staples, lean proteins, and plenty of fresh veggies and fruits.
When it comes to your produce, we recommend following the Environmental Working Group's highly-anticipated, annual list of the most and least pesticide-ridden foods. Buying organic food exclusively isn't realistic for everyone, so consider The Clean Fifteen & Dirty Dozen as your cheat-sheet for when to buy organic and when you can get away with what's standard.
