How Organic Are You?

What factor do you take into account when you’re doing your weekly groceries?  Do you try to eat healthy? And by healthy does it mean to be organic?

I’m not really into organic things but when I shop for food, especially for my kids, I always make an effort to read the ingredients in its contents.  I always try to avoid food with preservatives, antioxidants, colors and flavours enhancers.

There’s nothing wrong to be organic either.  I would like to be totally organic devotee if I can afford it. But, the thing is organic stuffs are much dearer than non-organic it’s a fact.  So how far should you go to be organic?

I found this information about what foods you should buy organic and which you don’t need to, which I think is very helpful.


According to Andrew Weil, M.D these are foods that you should buy organic if you can:

  • Celery
  • Peaches
  • Strawberries
  • Apples
  • Blueberries (Domestic)
  • Nectarines
  • Sweet Bell Peppers
  • Spinach
  • Collard Greens/Kale
  • Cherries
  • Potatoes
  • Grapes (Imported)
  • Onions

And foods that you don’t need to buy organic:

  • Avocados
  • Sweet Corn
  • Pineapples
  • Mangoes
  • Sweet Peas
  • Asparagus
  • Kiwi
  • Cabbage
  • Eggplant
  • Cantaloupe (Domestic)
  • Watermelon
  • Grapefruit
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Honeydew Melon

So, at least you have  choices here.  It would be perfect if you could grow your own vegs and fruits garden plus couple chooks and maybe a cow…and a pig :)
