When to Buy Organic (and when not to)

Organic seems to be the way to go these days. Problem is, it's expensive. So what do we really need to buy that is organic?

Recently there was a great article in the Wall Street Journal detailing when it is a good idea to buy organic and when it is a good idea to save your money.

Worth it:

  • Apples, peaches, bell peppers, strawberries, imported grapes, spinach, lettuce, potatoes and carrots
  • Milk and dairy products
  • Meat and poultry
  • Baby food
  • Foods you eat a lot of

Not Worth it:

  • Broccoli, bananas, frozen sweet peas, frozen corn, asparagus, avocados, onions
  • Seafood
  • Some processed foods such as bread, chips, pasta, oils
  • Foods you eat only occasionally

I love organic foods. I read an article over the summer in my Fitness magazine and I'm so glad I read it because it helped me when I went shopping for food. This is always helpful information.
