I’m not really into organic things but when I shop for food, especially for my kids, I always make an effort to read the ingredients in its contents. I always try to avoid food with preservatives, antioxidants, colors and flavors enhancers. I will always put the package/box back into the shelves if I see lots of number in it.
There’s nothing wrong to be organic either. I would like to be totally organic devotee if I can afford it. But, the thing is organic stuffs are much dearer than non-organic it’s a fact. So how far should you go to be organic?
I found this information about what foods you should buy organic and which you don’t need to, which I think is very helpful.
According to Andrew Weil, M.D these are foods that you should buy organic if you can:
- Blueberries (Domestic)
- Sweet Bell Peppers
- Collard Greens/Kale
- Grapes (Imported)
And foods that you don’t need to buy organic:
- Sweet Corn
- Sweet Peas
- Cantaloupe (Domestic)
- Sweet Potatoes
- Honeydew Melon
So, at least you have choices here. It would be perfect if you could grow your own veggies and fruits plus couple chooks and maybe a cow….:) 🙂
