We are all aware that organic food is best for health – however, it is usually not healthy on the bank balance!
To maximize the most gain out of a budget, I researched the top most heavily sprayed fruit and veg with the highest residual pesticide, which I try to buy organic if I can:
- bell peppers
(kale is increasingly becoming highly sprayed too… )
I also have a list of ‘clean’ fruit and veg which I often buy ‘conventionally farmed’ as these are often low in pesticide residue:
- sweetcorn (but look out for GMO!!)
- sweet potato
