In the June issue of A. Wellness Note, we talked about eating organic: why its important, the benefits, but also if it's truly feasible and realistic. You'll have to check it out (you can get this issue if you subscribe in the month of June or if this is at a later date, you can subscribe then access archived issues), but for now, following the rule of "Dirty Dozen" and "Clean Fifteen" does help prioritize what should be purchased organically, which results in a slightly happier budget. Due to access or budget, you may not be able to follow this rule to the T, but that's totally okay! This is a great guideline, so do what you can. These lists change based on the amount of pesticides they test for each year. EWG does a great job providing a list. If you can't remember, a good rule of thumb overall is if you eat the peel, then purchase organic, if you don't, then conventional is okay!
