I know I don’t have to tell you breakfast is the most important meal of the day.Personally, I love breakfast because I love breakfast food. Hot coffee with whole cream, toasty buttered waffles, and perfectly scrambled eggs are just a few of my favorite things.But almost as much as I love the glorious fatty carby combos that are somehow only deemed acceptable on a breakfast plate, I love the way eating breakfast in the morning makes me feel. The ritual of it.
The dirty dozen might sound like a band of outlaws in a western movie, but they are actually a list of fruits and vegetables found to have the highest levels of pesticide residues.

The twelve with the highest presence of pesticide residues are the dirty dozen, and those with the lowest levels are the clean fifteen.
Trying to eat healthy and clean can be so hard these days with all the different labels to look for and ingredients to steer clear of. Don't you wish sometimes that someone would just give you the rules to follow?
