So organic food is more expensive than regular food. Why would you buy more expensive food when there’s regular food that’s cheaper?
Well, there’s a point to buying organic food, and that’s this: it doesn’t have poison in it. More specifically, it doesn’t have pesticides and chemicals on the outside, and for meat, it doesn’t include synthetic hormones.
That’s a big deal! You don’t want to eat chemicals and pesticides, and you definitely don’t want to eat synthetic hormones.
So definitely go for organic when you’re buying meat.
However, if you’re buying fruit, there’s some where it pays to buy organic and some where it makes no sense.
Think about it this way – if it’s got a thick peel on the outside that you have to remove to get to the fruit on the inside, you can get away with not buying organic, because you’re peeling off the part that was exposed to the pesticides in the first place. This includes fruits like oranges, avocados, bananas, and grapefruits.
Fruits like apples, pears, and tomatoes, you eat the skin, so you should probably buy those organic (or wash them really well) unless you like eating pesticides.
For vegetables, there are certain veggies that don’t require pesticides to keep pests away, mostly because of their high sulfur content. This includes cabbage, onions, garlic, and broccoli. Don’t buy those organic, or you’re a big dummy.
That’s it! Buy organic on the stuff that matters and save your money on the stuff that doesn’t, and you’re in great shape!
