When to buy organic...

23 May 2012

A lot of people tell me they want to buy organic produce, but it's too expensive. I totally understand. I recommend following the 'dirty dozen.' The dirty dozen is a list of the produce that is the most heavily contaminated with pesticides and the most important to buy organic. Splurge a little for these 12 fruits and vegetables, and save your money and buy non-organic for the rest of your produce shopping list. 

1) Apples
2) Celery
3) Strawberries
4) Peaches
5) Nectarines
6) Spinach
7) Grapes
8) Sweet Bell Peppers
9) Potatoes
10) Blueberries
11) Lettuce
12) Collard Greens/Kale

On the flip side, the following 15 items are the lowest in pesticide.

1) Onions
2) Sweet Corn
3) Pineapple
4) Avocado
5) Asparagus
6) Sweet Peas
7) Mangoes
8) Eggplant
9) Canteloupe
10) Kiwi
11) Cabbage
12) Watermelon
13) Sweet Potatoes
14) Grapefruit
15) Mushrooms
