This Food52 column from today has some information about the "Dirty Dozen" food list:
I went to the Environmental Working Group's web site and was dismayed to see that a lot of my favorites are high on the list. http://www.ewg.org/foodnews...
I wash all produce I buy, but I just can't buy organic everything. Does anyone have any information about what constitutes "a lot" of a particular food? Their FAQ link is very helpful, but I had a hard time finding more detailed info.
For example, I eat so many grapes, cherry tomatoes, and so much spinach and lettuce daily, every week, that I don't think I'll buy non-organic again. But what's a lot of potatoes? (#12 on the list... sobbing loudly!) Three? Ten?
