Why Organic??

Why do health insurance companies send magazines? And who reads them? I guess that would be me. Actually, it was a very specific article in one of those semi annual issues that caught my attention..."What Produce to buy Organic". I clipped out the post and discarded the leftover mag.

No need on me telling you the benefits of eating Organic. That's someone else's blog, but one way to start eating organic is knowing what to buy.

Another great tip to changing into an organic lifestyle is to buy just a few items at each shopping trip. It will be much easier on your budget and eventually you will work your way up to organic eating!!

Here's the low down on the most contaminated with pesticides (definitely wanna buy these organic) and items that are the least contaminated:

Most Contaminated
Peaches
Apples
Sweet Bell Peppers
Celery
Nectarines
Strawberries
Cherries
Pears
Grapes (imported)
Spinach
Lettuce
Potatoes

Least Contaminated:
Onions
Avocado
Sweet Corn (Frozen)
Pineapples
Mango
Asparagus
Sweet Peas (Frozen)
Kiwi Fruit
Bananas
Cabbage
Broccoli
Eggplant
