Going Organic!

After all of our Organic shopping last month, I was a bit overwhelmed. To make this transition easier on me and our pocket book, we have made a "top ten". This is our "priority" list. We will get these all organic no matter what and let the rest be. If I can find it organic, great. If not then we will just get what we usually bought. Every month I will be adding a new item to our "top ten" to make our list a little longer.

Our Top Ten

1. Strawberries
2. Apples
3. Bananas
4. Celery
5. Potatoes
6. Corn
7. Wheat/Flour
8. Eggs
9. Green Beans
10. Grass-Fed Beef
11. Butter

We made this list by doing lots of research of the top ten foods you should buy organic. After reading about 10 of these reports we wrote down all of the foods. Some of these foods were on every list...like apples and strawberries. Others maybe only made it to one or two of the lists. We decided which one's were on every list and put those on our top ten and took other foods that we eat a lot of and included those on our list as well. Some said bananas were safe while others didn't. Since our daughter eats a lot of these we decided to get them only organic.
Do your research to find your "top ten".

Here are a couple of resources to get you started:
