A friend of mine sent me this great article that has fabulous information about organic foods – what’s you really really should buy organic and what’s less important as organic. I know with my family it’s tough to justify the added expense for organics, but this article by thedailygreen “The Dirty Dozen: Top 12 Foods to Eat Organic” helps clarify what’s what.
With clear and simple explanations for why the “Dirty Dozen” are worth the extra $$$’s, making the right choices that will affect our health and the health of our children is put into context. Reasons range from thin/no skins allowing the chemicals to permeate (celery and tomatoes), overall environmental impact (meat), pesticides in human breast milk extending in rationale to dairy milk…
Topping their list of things to buy organic:
- Sweet Bell Peppers
- Leafy Greens
Do you buy organics? What percent of your groceries? What do you think and how do you decide?
