RealSimple: 10 Organic Foods That Aren’t Worth Buying

2 of 12

Avocados

This creamy fruit has a thick peel that protects the flesh from absorbing agricultural chemicals. It’s on the Clean 15 list of the Environmental Working Group (EWG), which highlights commonly consumed produce with the lowest amounts of pesticides, as tested by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). “Foods that have to be peeled, like bananas and avocados, tend to have a much lower number of residues when those foods have been prepared to eat,” says Alex Formuzis, a spokesperson from the EWG. Be sure to wash the skin thoroughly before cutting into it.
