Organic vs non organic?
I understand getting organic is best but I live in the suburbs and im 16, so no organic farmer markets or anything for me.
However, at my local shopping centre there is a fruit and vegie store (not the super market)
and they sell fruit and veggie from my state online, so im Australian and I love in Victoria, I can pretty much only get food from my state or neighbouring states.
Its a pretty secluded store but they get a steady pace of customers and the food does look fresh, even it might not be organic..
So my question is - is that ok?
If you can't get or afford organic, then get what you can. Make sure to wash veggies very well if not organic, you may be able to find a natural veggie wash that will remove some of the pesticides. Also, the ewg.org website has a listing of the "safest" vegetables and fruits, http://www.foodnews.org/fulllist.php it's a great resource. At least with this, you can decide which are "worth" buying organic.
