Budget Friendly Organic Shopping

We all have become more than aware about how imperative it is to eat organic foods, but sometimes it’s not always the most cost effective. The following is a list created by the Environmental Working Group of the highest and lowest pesticide contaminated fruits and vegetables. By referring to these lists, budget friendly organic shopping is within reach.

As for other foods products, remember to always purchase organic corn, wheat, soy, dairy, eggs and meat. While these are pricier, you will be saving yourself not only from genetically modified foods but also from a long list of additives such as hormones, antibiotics, pesticides and other harmful chemicals. Plus, you will actually be getting nutrients from your food. What a novel idea!

One more great trick to add to your list is a fruit and vegetable produce spray. Using a fruit and vegetable spray to clean your produce is a great way to dissolve some degree of pesticide residues that lie on the produce. While not as great as eating organic produce, it is better than nothing.
