I know these are tough times economically. Grocery shopping is getting very difficult for a lot of families and because of that people are less able to buy organic. With that in mind, if you can only buy a few organic items these are the things you should try to buy:

FRUIT

Peaches
Apples
Strawberries
Nectarines
Pears

VEGETABLES

Spinach
Bell Peppers
Celery
Potatoes
Hot Peppers

The reason these are the top 10 is because they have the most pesticides used on them and they carry the most residue into your home and body. Washing is not enough. One caveat is if you have a baby, all their food should be organic. One other recommendation is to eat seasonally. You’ll get the freshest food that has the smallest carbon footprint.
