Why eat Organic Food?

Why take the time and effort to eat organic food instead of conventional food? 

Is it so you will not be ingesting food containing man made chemicals?  Is it because you want to know that the delicious steak you are eating comes from an ethically and humanely raised animal?  Do you want to be sure the farm that produces the crispy flavorful veggies you enjoy is sustainable and friendly to the environment?

  All of these and many more reasons are why an ever increasing amount of people are choosing to go organic.

How to get started

Making the decision to change to an organic food lifestyle can seem daunting but if you go one step at a time it can be a fun and simple process.  Start with what as known by the Environmental Working Group as the 'Dirty Dozen'. These are the fruits and vegetables that are deemed most likely to contain pesticide remains due to their structure.  They are;

  • Apples
  • Celery
  • Cherries
  • Grapes
  • Nectarines
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Sweet Bell Peppers
  • Potatoes
  • Spinach
  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes
