Given the state of the economy, it's becoming harder to purchase good, clean, toxic-free foods. Many families today are having to do deal with a myriad of money problems and issues. It would seem that there is always more month than check, and the ol'game of robbing Peter to pay Paul is becoming America's favorite national past time. When it comes to purchasing organic verses non-organic, we want to be wise in our decision making process which is why the Environmental Working Group's clean fifteen and dirty dozen list is a blessing. This list provides a safe guide in which we can turn to for what foods we should buy organic, and what foods we can get by without having to purchase organic. It's a must have for those of us who aren't able to buy everything organic with no questions asked. In examining the lists we can see a common theme take shape. Those foods that are exposed and don't have a shell or casing of some sort seem to rank highest on the dirty list. Foods like apples, blueberries, and strawberries have skin and are more exposed to the surrounding environment as opposed to the clean list. The foods on the clean list, in general, have a shell or casing which offers its meat protection. Foods like pineapples, watermelon, and cantaloupes all have a casing that works to minimize damage to inside contents.
Categories that we absolutely do not want to waiver on are the meat and dairy. These two categories are an absolute must when it comes to organic, given the nature of these foods. These categories are where the nutrients and toxicity are more dense and concentrated. Thus, if the food that the animals consume are toxic and bad than they will be concentrated with toxicity and other health destroying properties. It's important that we hold to the highest standards with regard to this section of food!
Make it a priority to keep up with the clean and dirty list as a means to aid in strategic shopping. This will help put some relief on the pocketbook while giving the body the best quality foods it needs to run at optimal health!
