Yesterday I had a nice conversation with someone who was interested in buying organic foods. He said that a dietitian once gave him a list of produce that was worth buying organic but he had long since lost it. I rattled off a few things for him that carried higher pesticide residue and would be worth paying a higher price for organic. He wanted me to write them down but of course I never did. So, to relieve my guilty conscience here is the information for you instead.
To maximize your organic food dollar go organic on these types of produce that are most susceptible to pesticide residue:
Sweet bell peppers
Don't waste money on these items with the lowest pesticide residues:
Sweet peas (frozen)
Sweet corn (frozen)
