Going Organic: Shopping List

Buying organic is pricey, but the good news is that you can prioritize:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture has found that even after you wash certain fruits and vegetables, they still contain much higher levels of pesticide residue than others.

Enter the “Dirty Dozen”: Must-buy organic foods:

  • Apples
  • Cherries
  • Grapes
  • Chillies
  • Nectarines
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberries
  • Bell peppers
  • Celery
  • Potatoes
  • Spinach
Filthy, dirrrrty, nasty

Filthy, dirrrrty, nasty

Other organic foods worth considering:

  • Milk
  • Beef
  • Poultry

Organic meat contains no hormones and antibiotics that have been linked to increased antibacterial resistance in humans.

Plebs version: Just scrub these buggers really, really well.
