Buying Organic

It's sometimes hard (and expensive) to buy everything organic. I usually try to buy organic food & drink for my kids since their little bodies are more affected by what goes into them. I recently came across an article in Vegetarian Times on organic produce. Basically, if you eat the skin or leaves, it's best to buy organic. Here's a suggested list of produce that is worth buying organic: bell peppers, carrots, celery, leafy greens, cucumbers, green beans, potatoes, peaches, apples, nectarines, strawberries, pears, imported grapes. The produce on this list generally have the most residual pesticides. I actually bring this list with me every time I go to the grocery store for easy reference.
