We all want to eat as healthy as possible to avoid pesticides, hormones and antibiotics right? And it seems like you can get organic versions of just about every fruit and vegetable known to man these days...for a price. And that price can really put a strain on your grocery budget. Which begs the question; which produce is most important to buy organic? Well, some things are just more likely to have pesticide residue than others. So opt for organic. These are the dirty dozen fruits and vegetables that you want to spend a little extra and go organic:
- Bell peppers
- Spinach and other leafy dark greens
Whether it's thicker usually inedible skins or simply the fact they don't face much opposition from insect pests, some fruits and veggies just don't have much pesticide residue. You can afford to cheat a little with non-organic varieties. These are the ones that don't matter as much:
- Sweet potato
Of course, if you can go organic without breaking the bank it's always good to support organic farmers. The more we go organic now the more affordable organic farm products will become in the long run.
