...And Tasty Ways to Eat Them
By Taylor Lupo from Colorado Health & Wellness
Each year, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) selects the Clean 15, or the 15 fruits and veggies with the least amount of pesticide residue. What’s new this year? Corn, cauliflower and cantaloupe made the cut.
These fruits and veggies are tasty on their own, but added to other wholesome ingredients, they taste even better. We asked Dr. Frank H. Chae, Medical Director of the Bariatric Surgery Center at Sky Ridge, about ways to use this year’s cleanest crops.
Before sinking your teeth into these foods, Dr. Chae recommends giving them a good wash. To remove dirt and bacteria, place your food in a colander and rinse with water for three to five minutes.
Once your produce is prepped, read on to learn how you can enjoy these foods throughout the day.
