What you should buy organic & what you can buy conventionally

 When buying produce it’s important to buy local and organic when you can. When that isn’t possible, there are some guidelines to pay attention to regarding what foods you really should buy organic and which you can buy conventionally if necessary. Foods that you absolutely should buy organic include: apples, celery, leafy greens, grapes, bell pepper, peaches, strawberries, nectarines, cherries, kale, carrots and pears. These are the foods that have the highest levels of pesticides when grown conventionally. The following foods have thick skins or simply have lower pesticide levels: mangos, watermelon, pineapple, broccoli, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, avocados, onions, sweet corn, asparagus, sweet peas, kiwi, cabbage, eggplant and papaya.
