  • Things you don't remove the outside of. For example, fruits and veggies where you'll be eating the peel, like grapes, cherries, apples, lettuce. For things you can't afford to buy organic, choose reputable sources to buy them from, avoid milk and meats that are hormone-filled, and buy free range when possible, especially eggs. Try farmer's markets for produce and some even have meats and cheeses from local farmers.

  • Vegan doesn't just apply to organic. There are organic groups on here even though I haven't joined any.

  • Milk definately! There is so much crap in milk it isn't even funny; Same for other dairy products you use regularly.

    Next, pick whatever it is you eat the most of...For example, my family consumes tons of catsup & applesauce, so I buy only organic brands.

    We grow organically much of our produce & put it by for the winter months, so fruits & veggies aren't an issue here, but if you don't or can't, that would be my next choice to buy organic. I also buy organic flours in bulk to make my own baked goods, but if you can't, then try to go for organic baked goods when you can.

    Last would be meats, but that's b/c we don't eat much meat here. If you do, then you may want to consider buying organic meats after dairy, b/c meats are also loaded with crap you don't want near your body.

    If you can't buy organic all the time, then do it when you can, 'cause every bit helps.

  • I think meats and dairy products need to be organic. The fat on an animal is where they store all the chemicals.

  • Oh, I wanted to add that trimming all visible fat is a great way to reduce toxins.

  • Try this link http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/ and see if this store is around you. They specialize in organic but do sell conventional. Buy organic eggs not just cage free.
