I was thinking this would be fun to share today.
Buying Organic can be spendy, but here is a little guide that I go by! I buy the dirty dozen organic for sure, but the produce that is the least contaminated, I buy conventional. I printed this list off and keep it in my wallet, so if I can’t remember I just bust out the reminder list.
The following guide is from the Environmental Working Group.
12 Most Contaminated
(AKA the ones you’d be wise to by organic)
Sweet Bell Peppers
I add carrots to this list…
(AKA if you don’t wanna, don’t buy these organic…)
Sweet Corn (Frozen)
Sweet Peas (Frozen)
I add garlic to this list
It’s also not just about organic or not… buying local and in season is huge in my world too. Buying organic grapes for Indonesian isn’t really helping the world out and I would doubt their freshness.
