Going Grocery Shopping? What to buy Organic...

We commonly hear that organic foods are the healthier, more nutritious, and safer food option.  Buying organic ensures you will be consuming less pesticides, chemicals, and you are supporting the environment.  With the amount of chemicals and toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis, eating organic is one way we can help decrease this load.

The Organic Center conducted a review of over 100 studies and in 2008 released its findings that plant-based organic foods are nutritionally superior to the conventional counterparts.

Buying all organic can get very expensive, below is a listing of foods that you should always choose  organic as they are the highest in pesticides and chemicals and those you can buy conventional:
