Not all of us can afford to purchase organic items on our budgets all the time but we can make an effort to purchase these items when our budget allows us to do so. Even the smallest purchase does make a difference to the farmers and ranchers that choose the organic lifestyle. Also, try to make purchases at your local farmers market to support the locally grown movement.

Purchasing Organic Produce on a Budget.

This was a useful blog courtesy of Bar 10 Beef. When shopping on a budget for organic food, follow these guidelines when possible.

Dirty Dozen most pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables are:

apples, celery, strawberries, peaches, spinach, imported nectarines, imported grapes,
sweet bell peppers, potatoes, blueberries, lettuce and kale/collars.

Clean 15 of non organic are:

onions, sweet corn, pineapples, avocado, asparagus,
sweet peas, mangoes, eggplant, cantaloupe, kiwi, cabbage, watermelon,
sweet potatoes, grapefruit and mushrooms.

In Summary, dedicate your budget to buying organic produce specifically based on the dirty dozen list and buy organic when you can on the clean 15.
