In my opinion eating Organic is not only better for your health, but the environment too!
Now, that being said it isn’t always in the budget to buy organic produce. I remember one summer seeing an organic cauliflower being 8.00… That I was questioning a bit, but after talking to an organic farmer I understood the cost behind that 8.00 cauliflower. She said hands down it is worth that 8.00 as it is one of the most difficult vegetables to produce organically.
Below I will explain why organic produce is more expensive, and if you cannot afford all organic produce all of the time I will let you know the items that are more heavily contaminated with pesticides that you want to focus on buying certified organic or organically grown to reduce your toxic load.

Although organic farming is often considered a modern thing, it has been revolutionizing for more than a century!
