Organic vs Non-Organic Foods
To buy organic, or not to buy organic? – That is the question! (Especially when you are on a budget). For anyone who is concerned with their health and the wellbeing of their family, eating healthy is always at the top of the list. With all that we are exposed to these days about the mass production of food, it almost seems as there is no safe option other than eating only organic produce.
Organic foods contain more antioxidant compounds as well as lower levels of toxic metals and pesticides than non-organic foods. These are weighted reasons to stray from the non-organic counterparts. The good news is that there are foods that are still in the “safe zone” to consider for consumption.
Below you will find a list of foods that you will want to consider buying only organic, followed by a list of foods that are safe to pick from the non-organic section.
- Hot Peppers
- Sweet Bell Peppers
- Sweet Peas
- Sweet Potatoes
