Organic food is expensive. All food is expensive. With the growing debate of organic vs. non organic foods it is putting a lot of pressure on people. Obviously most of us are not buying all organic, but if we are trying to be healthy and buy a few organic items, which foods should we buy organic?

Well if you can afford a few organic produce items it will help you minimize exposure to some pesticides and these are the best to buy organic (because they usually have the most pesticide residue on them):

Strawberries
Apples
Celery
Sweet Bell Pepppers
Peaches
Nectarines
Grapes
Spinach
Lettuce
Cucumbers
Blueberries
Potatoes
Green Beans
Kale/Greens

So take that list next time you vist the grocery store. If you can swap out any of the above for the organic version you are doing yourself and your family a favor.
