When buying organic pays (and doesn’t) has three sections:
- Buy these items organic as often as possible. They list apples, bell peppers, celery, cherries, imported grapes, nectarines, peaches, pears, potatoes, red raspberries, spinach, and strawberries; meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy; baby food.
- Buy these items organic if price is no object. They list Asparagus, avocados, bananas, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet corn, kiwi, mangos, onions, papaya, pineapples, and sweet peas; Breads, oils, potato chips, pasta, cereals, and other packaged foods, such as canned or dried fruit and vegetables.
- Don’t bother buying these items organic. They list seafood and cosmetics.
I buy organic items meant for my children, and if it’s on sale, I’ll buy most anything organic. The stuff is still expensive, though; I can’t afford to buy organic consistently.
