12 Produce to Always Buy Organic!

July 29, 2014 1 min read

photo 1 (3) When it comes to buying produce at your local supermarket, there is a lot to question-but most of us don't. Of course, every bit of produce that you find, especially at Wal-mart, has been sprayed with some form of pesticides. Remember that tip that grandma taught you? "Always wash your fruits and veggies before you eat them" she said. Well, it was for a damn good reason. However, sometimes avoiding produce that might have been sprayed with chemicals is just inevitable since some people tend to shy away from organic produce due to the higher costs or it may not be readily available in your area. If that is the case, then no worries. There are some produce that are protected from the chemicals and they are usually the ones that are hardest to peel since they are protected by their tough skins. You might have heard of the "Dirty Dozen" of Produce. These are the top 12 produce items that you should always aim to purchase organically. This is usually due to the thin outer skin that makes it easier for the pesticides to seep their way on in! Here are the dirty dozen to always buy organic:
  1. Apples
  2. Grapes
  3. Blueberries
  4. Celery
  5. Kale, Spinach, & Lettuce
  6. Pears
  7. Potatoes
  8. Peaches
  9. Strawberries
  10. Cherries
  11. Bell Peppers
  12. Nectarines
Wondering which produce are safe to buy inorganically? Here is a chart of the "Clean 15" Produce!
