Organic choice

Hi Angels,
I just came across this great article and wanted to share it with you-

The slightly higher price of organic foods scares some consumers away. For consumers who are as budget-conscious as they are eco-conscious, the Environmental Working Group has developed a “Dirty Dozen” list of 12 foods that are best to buy organic, since the commercial varieties tend to be highest in pesticide residues. Updated for 2010, the best buys in organic fruits and organic vegetables are:

* Peaches
* Apples
* Bell Peppers
* Celery
* Nectarines
* Strawberries
* Cherries
* Kale
* Blueberries
* Grapes
* Potatoes
* Spinach

Conversely, some produce tends to be very low in pesticides, even when grown commercially. For example, pineapples, corn and mangoes are peeled before eaten and tend to have less pesticide in their flesh. Others are naturally resistant to pests and therefore need fewer pesticide applications. Save money by purchasing the following fruits and vegetables as regular, non-organic “Clean Fifteen” produce:

* Onions
* Avocadoes
* Sweet Corn
* Pineapples
* Mangoes
* Asparagus
* Sweet Peas
* Kiwis
* Cabbages
* Eggplants
* Papayas
* Watermelons
* Broccoli
* Tomatoes
* Sweet Potatoes

Hope this helps!
To your best health!
Thanks to my dear friends at and
All love and eternal gratitude-

    Greetings Angelique,
    For all your readers in the PNW area if they are lucky enough to have a Trader Joe’s close to them, it is a wonderful place to buy organic foods at really great prices.
    Our family of 3 people and 4 pets all eat little else but organic, and we can eat quite well on $200.00 a month, shopping there. Granted you need to keep in mind that some things are going to be higher, but on an average, if you stick to s budgeted list you can come away not feeling robbed. I highly recommend TJ’s over some other “all organic” stores. Yet, that’s my opinion, and everyone is entitled to their own, so check it out for yourself!
    Peace, Love, and Light,
    David WhiteEagle

      Hi David, thanks so much for stopping in. Really appreciate the feedback. I too am a fan of Trader Joe’s! Just wish they’d stop using so much plastic wrapping. I think it’s unnecessary! 🙂

    Angelique, in this post you’re saying it’s ok to eat conventional sweet corn but conventional sweet corn in the USA is GMO.

      Hi Barbara, You are half correct. I didn’t write this article, so I didn’t say it. 🙂
      But you absolutely correct about the corn! I am staunchly opposed to GMO. However, this articles focus was about pesticides. It was for people who have to decide on a tight budget what’s the most important thing to buy organic. Buying organic is always preferable!
      Thank you and much love-Angelique
