I try to buy organic when possible, but buying all organic gets very expensive.
Like most people, I am always looking to save money where ever I can.
Here is two list showing the produce that you should always buy organic
and then another list where you can save a little by buying non organic.
Spend/ Always go Organic with these foods:
Imported grapes, celery, strawberries, blueberries, bell peppers, cherries, peaches, apples, nectarines, kale, spinach and potatoes.
Save Money/ Non organic considered clean:
Honeydew melon, onions, avocado, sweet corn, mangoes, pineapple, sweet peas, kiwifruit, asparagus, cabbage, eggplant, sweet potato, cantaloupe, watermelon and grapefruit.
*The non organic list is considered clean foods, they absorb lower levels of pesticides.
*Always scrub the outside of your produce to remove as much as possible of the pesticide residue.
