Ashley Koff, nutrition adviser for Prevention magazine recommends buying your staples organically.  Whatever you eat most days, that’s what your should buy in the organic aisle.

These 14 fruits and veggies have the highest pesticide residue, so it’s best to buy these organically grown:

Summer squash, apples, celery, cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, grapes, hot peppers, nectarines, kale, peaches, spinach, potatoes, red bell peppers and strawberries. adds these to the list of foods you should always buy organic:

Eggs, leafy greens, meat, dairy products, coffee, baby food and anything you eat a lot of. 


Your grocery bill will definitely  be more if you buy organic.  Are there foods that aren’t organic but still safe to eat?    The answer is yes.  No need to buy these organic, according to

Sweet potatoes, mushrooms, kiwi, grapefruit, cantaloupe, corn, onions, pineapple, avacado, cabbage, sweet peas, papayas, mangoes, asparagus and eggplant.
