is it worth buying organic?

It’s been a while since I read over the Dirty Dozen and the Clean Fifteen {even though I have the apps on my iphone!} and I’m a little bummed to know that I’ve been paying double for organic kiwi when it’s really not entirely necessary especially when you’re trying to keep your grocery bill reasonable.

As a refresher, here is a list of Dirty Dozen fruits and vegetables to try your hardest to buy in organic {since they’re heavily sprayed and tested positive for about 50+ chemicals each} and also check out the Clean Fifteen which usually have little to no trace of pesticides.

P.S  – don’t freak out about your dull, non-waxy organic apples with the occasional wormhole. It’s a good thing that the bugs are eating them 😉

the dirties:

  • – celery
  • – peaches
  • – strawberries
  • – apples
  • – domestic blueberries
  • – nectarines
  • – sweet bell peppers
  • – spinach, kale and collard greens
  • – cherries
  • – potatoes
  • – imported grapes
  • – lettuce

the clean team:

  • – onions
  • – avocados
  • – sweet corn
  • – pineapples
  • – mango
  • – sweet peas
  • – asparagus
  • – kiwi fruit
  • – cabbage
  • – eggplant
  • – cantaloupe
  • – watermelon
  • – grapefruit
  • – sweet potatoes
  • – sweet onions
