Organic Foods Worth Buying

Because of the higher cost of organic foods – often 50% to 100% more – it's worth your while to look more closely at which ones are truly worth spending money on. Organic foods are costlier because pesticide-free foods require more labor to produce. According to a list provided by the Environmental Working Group, a nonprofit in Washington D. C., some foods are more susceptible to pesticide residue and therefore their organic counterparts are worth buying. Some foods, like bananas, broccoli, and avocadoes, are not worth the added expense because they are not prone to pesticide residue. Here is a list of those organic foods worth buying:

  • Apples
  • Celery
  • Cherries
  • Grapes
  • Lettuce
  • Nectarines
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Potatoes
  • Spinach
  • Strawberries
  • Sweet bell peppers
