Organic is muy expensivo Mamita! Oiy.
Righteous Cowgirls and Chaps,
I found this handy little chart online – you can print it out and put it on your fridge. They rank produce for pesticide content. If you find yourself confounded by the organic question, this is a good guide to make life easier: apparently, you can lower your pesticide exposure by 90% just by buying organic for the 12 worst on the list! We’re all trying to save some cashola so this is a good little diddy.
I try and rationalize my OUTRAGEOUS grocery bill by reminding myself that my medicine cabinet is empty. That’s me and ya’ll know my sitch. Do what you can and do not stress. Peel your food in some cases, but the best option is to eat a varied diet and buy organic – when possible. Remember, all this stuff can make ya a little fruity. Change one thing at a time and for heaven’s sake try not to get too stressed out. Stress makes me cranky.

Peace and Veggies,
