Save Money On Organic Produce

Are you one of those folks that appreciates the idea of eating organic, then wanders into the grocery wondering if your choice is a good one?  Most consumers shudder at the price of eating chemical-free.  It's a good concern to have - as there has to be a way to eat better, save money, save the planet and get healthy at the same time.  Today's column outlines a less expensive way to fit all of the above mentioned into your daily life while keeping those chemicals/pesticides out of your food.

Thanks to the Environmental Working Group, opting for organic (or not) has become that much easier.  EWG published one of the best guides to figuring out what fruits and vegetables are higher in pesticides, with the worst offenders being peaches, celery and apples.  Many are shocked to learn that some produce barely requires any pesticides at all, with onions and avocados being practically pesticide-free.  It's also interesting to note that domestic grapes are better than imported ones.  EWG posted a fascinating study, listing 47 different fruits and veggies for you to choose organic (or not), with the end result being you saving money and being healthy.
