Does It Have to be Organic?

I am often asked the question ...Do I have to buy Organic fruits and vegetables?  

To make the best decision for my family I follow guidelines set by the Environmental Working Group (EWG). The EWG empowers people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment.

The EWG has put together a Shopper's Guide to help you make decisions on what to buy organic and where you could save your dollar.  They highlight the cleanest and dirtiest conventionally raised fruits and vegetables in two categories, “The Dirty Dozen” (highly recommended to purchase organic) and ”The Clean Fifteen” (okay to buy conventional).

Please find the link to the list attached; it will help you make better shopping decisions!

Happy shopping!

Cheers to a healthier you!
