HOW TO EAT ORGANIC ON A BUDGET
Many of us know the reasons why we should eat organic but we don’t always know how to do this on a budget. At AboutLife (Sydney’s premier organic supermarket) one of their primary goals is to provide healthy, nutritious and organic food at reasonable prices so anybody, on any budget, can choose to preserve their health and the health of the environment whilst supporting their local farming community.
The first way to do this is by eating your fruit and vegetables seasonally. This is often better for us as the nutrients are more accessible plus it tastes better when eaten within the seasons too. They source all their produce from local, chemical free and organic farms and because of this you won’t always find absolutely everything you might find in the big supermarkets – tomatoes in July anyone?
If you do need to be selective though on which fruit and vegetables are best bought organic check out the dirty dozen and clean fifteen, below are the dirty dozen and these record the highest level of pesticide residue so are best bought organic.
