To Go Organic or Not To Go Organic
In these days when we are all trying to pinch pennies and make the right choices, the question comes up, "Do I really need to spend the extra money on organic foods?". I found an article that was published by the Environmental Working Group that listed the top 12 foods that you should buy organic, and 12 foods that you can pass over. They made their decisions based on how much pesticides are used for each type of veggie and fruit.
Top 12 foods that you should purchase organic
Sweet Bell Peppers
Top 12 foods that do not have to be organic
Sweet Corn (frozen)
Sweet Peas (frozen)
They also mentioned in the article that if you rarely buy an item from the first list, then you don't need need to buy organic. But if you are an apple a day type of a person, then you should buy organic so you are bringing in less pesticides into your body.
I hope this helps you!!
