Organics 101

As I am attempting to insert more whole foods into my family’s diet, I was wondering which ones are better to buy organic? I had heard that some fruits/veggies don’t really matter, but for some, it’s best if you can swing for the organic.

Here’s the list of the “dirty dozen” that if you can buy the organic variety, it’s best. I will include a link at the bottom and if you click through to that page, you can print a wallet size card so you always have the list with you.

1)Peaches

2)Apples

3)Sweet bell peppers

4)Celery

5)Nectarines

6)Strawberries

7)Cherries

8)Pears

9)Imported grapes

10)Spinach

11)Lettuce

12)Potatoes
