Organic Foods can be expensive, so how do you save on them?  One tip is to know which items are on the Top 12 Foods to Eat Organic List, and are important to purchase organic.  Based on this article by EWG Foods, you can save money by only focusing on the foods that ‘matter’ if they are organic or not.  They are called the ‘Dirty Dozen’, and are the items that typically involve you eating the skin which is where the most pesticides are.

The Top 12 Foods to eat Organic according to the article by EWG Foods that should be purchased organic are:

  1. Apples
  2. Celery
  3. Strawberries
  4. Peaches
  5. Spinach
  6. Nectarines
  7. Grapes
  8. Sweet Bell Peppers
  9. Potatoes
  10. Blueberries – Domestic
  11. Lettuce
  12. Kale/Collard Greens

I was also interested to know that Onions, Sweet Corn, Pineapples, and Avocados are on their list of produce with the lowest Pesticides, if you think about it these items all have large skins that you take off before eating.

What are you thoughts?  How else can you save on Organic Foods?
