We know that it is best to avoid/limit the chemicals/pesticides that we are introducing into our bodies and one of the ways you can do that is to buy Organic. I know that it can be more money, so here is a list of some items that you don't need to buy organic...most of them with skins/peels that you will remove and throw away!
11 Items You Don't Have to Buy Organic
The best way to reap the health benefits of fruits and vegetables without exposing yourself to potentially harmful pesticides is to choose organic produce whenever possible, especially those varieties which are more likely to be contaminated.
