Organic Food

This post is more reference because it’s the one safe place to put reminders to myself and may help others.

The advice is we should all be eating more fruit and veggies and even if they’re not organic it’s still healthier than not eating them.  But the best produce to buy organic (in rough order of amount we consume) are:

apples

celery

lettuce

carrots

bell pepper

pears

peaches

strawberries

imported grapes

cherries

kale

nectarine

 

Fruits with thicker peels don’t absorb as many pesticides.
