Save on Organic Produce: The Clean Fifteen

By admin | January 31, 2011

I hear it all the time: “I want to eat organic, but it’s expensive!”  These days it almost feels like our food is working against us, and if you want to eat better on a budget (and who doesn’t?) then you may have already encountered the Dirty Dozen: twelve foods to buy organic, even if the rest of your produce is conventionally grown.

To further the “organic on a budget” conversation, The Daily Green posted the “Clean Fifteen: Foods You Don’t Have to Buy Organic” recently.  After you read the article, check out the comments, because there is some interesting food for thought there.  I’m not sure that everyone will agree with the Clean Fifteen, and frequently it was pointed out the organic or not isn’t our biggest problem.  Instead we need to be more aware of GMOs (genetically modified foods).  That’s a thought I tend to agree with.  I feel the GMOs are just as dangerous, if not moreso, than the pesticide laden conventionally grown produce.

Sigh, dinner just keeps getting complicated doesn’t it?  Well, stay strong, dear consumer.  We’re all in this together and when we speak with our wallets, “they” really do listen.  The times, they are a’changin’.
