Eating Organic

Ideally, all the food we buy and all the food available would be organic, but this is not the case, and it's an expensive choice to make! Fortunately, not all organic foods are created equal. The following is a list of foods that give you the most bang for your buck when buying organic. These items retain the most pesticides when non-organic, so these are a great place to start buying organic.

  • apples
  • bell peppers
  • blueberries
  • carrots
  • celery
  • cherries
  • coffee
  • imported grapes
  • kale
  • leafy greens
  • meat
  • milk
  • nectarines
  • peaches
  • pears
  • potatoes
  • red raspberries
  • spinach
  • strawberries

The following foods don't contain as mainly pesticides when they reach our table, so if you're on a budget, save your money by going non-organic with these:
  • asparagus
  • avocados
  • bananas
  • broccoli
  • cabbage
  • cauliflower
  • corn
  • eggplant
  • kiwis
  • mangoes
  • onions
  • papaya
  • peas
  • pineapples
  • sweet potatoes
  • watermelon
