Dirty South

The best advice I can offer is: wash your produce. If you purchase from a grocery store, most veggies and fruit have pesticides and herbicides on the exterior. Organic produce may not be coated with undesirable chemicals, but most will have dirt on them especially if you are buying from a farmer's market. In either instance, produce is handled by so many different hands so be sure to give your produce a good scrub.

This is the most popular veggie wash I have seen. Remember: fruits and vegetables have natural coatings that keep moisture inside, and washing them will make them spoil sooner. To avoid waste, wash your produce right before you plan on eating it.
