Do you know what the codes mean on your produce?

This is a great reference for the produce codes. I haven’t seen the 5 digit code starting with 8 in my local Kroger but I am keeping an eye out. I don’t always purchase organic but I try to stick to the clean 15 listed on EWG.org and avoid the dirty dozen.  EWG.org has some great resources regarding toxins and how to avoid them.

Remember, do what you can and don’t worry about what you can’t. Some weeks your budget may not permit you to get  organic food. It’s ok. Do you what you can when you can.
