Healthy Choices

A trip to the grocery store can be rather daunting – so many choices, so many distractions! The aromas from the bakery, vendors offering free samples, boxes and cans neatly arrayed on shelves or artfully stacked, all enticing you to “Try me!” My favorite section is the produce aisle. I love the colors, the shapes, the textures, and the possibilities that present themselves as I consider what to buy. What’s in season? What’s on sale? What do I need to make this week’s recipes? My first choice is always to go organic, but availability can be a problem.  And then there’s the cost. In order to make those grocery dollars stretch, and still make the healthiest choices possible, I rely on the Environmental Working Group’s findings. According to the EWP, the twelve most pesticide-laden conventionally grown fruits and vegetables are:

  1. Apples
  2. Celery
  3. Strawberries
  4. Peaches
  5. Spinach
  6. Nectarines (imported)
  7. Grapes (imported)
  8. Sweet bell peppers
  9. Potatoes
  10. Blueberries (domestic)
  11. Lettuce
  12. Kale and collard greens

My healthy choices start there – these fruits and vegetables are the ones I always buy organic. Consider which of these you eat most often. Switching from conventional to organic produce on the two or three items you use the most will help you keep that New Year’s resolution to “Eat healthier!”
