How many of you buy organic produce?
What do you buy?
I don’t buy everything organic and wouldn’t call myself a food purist in any sense. However, I have made a conscience effort to look into which fresh fruits and vegetables are treated with high levels of pesticides when farmed. I choose to stick with the organic versions of these products whenever possible.
However, it can be expensive. I have many friends who have indicated organic foods were the first things cut out of their grocery budgets as the economic climate worsened.
In my own research, I found conventional farming to treat the following products with higher than normal amounts of pesticide so I buy organic.
On my list:
Yes, it’s a small list, but since we eat these foods often, I feel it makes a difference as far as healthy choices are concerned.
Did I miss any obvious and common fresh foods you feel should be on my organic list?
I’m also curious about raw, organic sugar. Does anyone use it regularly for baking? How is it?
Wow. That’s a lot of questions, but I need to know.
