The Benefits of Going Organic
Here´s a subject close to my heart…Going Organic.
I know that many of you already buy organic produce. There are many benefits such as fewer pesticides and chemicals, higher nutrient content, it is eco-friendly and is also much tastier.
The good news is that organic products are now more readily available, and have also become much more cost effective. Think Trader Joe´s instead of Whole Foods for example.
Research shows that the most important items to buy organic are; apples, pears, grapes, peaches, strawberries, cherries, bell peppers, celery, nectarines, lettuces and leafy greens, meat, eggs, milk and dairy, carrots, potatoes and tomatoes.
It is interesting to note that there are some items such as onions, avocados, pineapple, corn on the cob, mangos, kiwi, eggplant, papaya and watermelon that have a protective skin and are therefore safer to buy conventional.
