If you want to be healthy, wealthy and wise about the fruits and vegetables you eat, you should know when to go organic, as well as when it’s unnecessary. Sometimes I find it worthwhile to pay a little extra for organic…sometimes not so wise.
I came across a study by the Environmental Working Group which ranked produce based on what contained the least and most amount of pesticides. The ones with the most pesticides were strawberries and spinach – so go organic for these two, as well as nectarines, apples, peaches, pears, cherries, grapes, celery, tomatoes, bell peppers and potatoes.
As for least amount of pesticides (making it unnecessary to go organic): obviously the thick skin things such as avocados, pineapple, bananas, eggplant, mangoes, papayas, cantaloupe, kiwi and grapefruit, but also cauliflower, cabbage, onions and asparagus.
On another note, Happy Birthday to my Dad…he’s 84 today! Happy Birthday Dad! I love you <3
