untitledWhile looking over the Brain Warrior’s Way, I was amazed at all of the information Doctor Daniel Amen and Tana Amen who is a nurse poured into their  book. Brain Warrior’s Way was so packed with helpful, healthy info that I found myself reading as much as I could gleam from it in one hour.

When I found the section where it warns of the highest levels of pesticides in foods, I figured this is what we eat as a family almost every day. Great! I already knew about pesticides, but this really brought it home and scared me, which it might do to you also, unless you completely skip this Taco Tuesday. Listed below are 10 foods with very high levels of pesticides in them according to the Amens, and there are 10 foods to eat containing the least amount of pesticides.

If you want to stay away from pesticides altogether you can eat organic foods, or grow your own at home. Btw—The Brain Warrior’s Way has longer lists, I didn’t include them all.


10 of the worst offenders containing high levels of pesticides are:

  1. 1.Celery
  2. 2.Peaches
  3. 3. Apples
  4. 4.Blueberries
  5. 5.Cucumbers
  6. 6.Strawberries
  7. 7.Potatoes
  8. 8. Grapes
  9. 9. Spinach
  10. 10.Cherries

Foods with the lowest levels of pesticide residue are:

  1. Onions
  2. Pineapples
  3. Sweet peas
  4. Cabbage
  5. .Mushrooms
  6. Broccoli
  7. Avocado
  8. Watermelon
  9. Asparagus
  10. Bananas
