Organic vs Non-Organic

To buy or not to buy… This is a dilema we might face in front of organic vs. nonorganic produce.
I have always been quite skeptical about organic labels. There are still a whole lot of companies that advertise 100% natural, 100% organic when in reality their products are fully processed and plenty of artificial colors and flavors, and let’s not even talk about pesticides in fruits and vegetables. Sometimes I feel like I’m being slowly and legally poisoned! Scary, no?
The long term effects these chemicals have in our overall health are really devastating, just to mention one example: cancer, one of the biggest killers of our time! That’s why I believe it is definitely the time to start appreciating the value of organic produce. Why to consume food full of poison when we have the organic option? 
I want to share with you a few things that might help you make a smarter choice about what you are buying but still keep it within your budget (Organic can be really harsh on your pocket).
Not all the products labled organic are real! So how to ensure you are no being disguised? I highly recommend to do a little research and make sure you are paying for the right product. Having a big brand is not a guarantee, but on the contrary those are the ones fooling us the most in terms of selling lies! 
Try to source local organic and make sure it is reliable! Another great option to consider is to grow some of you’re food at home, nowadays you can grow many things in pots! And even if it is just some herbs, you are already contributing not only to your health, but also to Mother Earth!!
I dream about having a farm with my own vegetable patch, one caw for my fresh raw milk, my own hens to lay eggs and a couple of pigs (in case you don’t know, I have a weakness for pork belly!). 
The ideal would be to buy only organic, but in case you can’t aford it, I want to share with you a basic list of things you shoul buy organic, and things that don’t necesarily have to be organic! You can write them down in a small piece of paper and keep it in your wallet, or if you are more high tech than me you might as well keep the list in your mobile at all times! This might save you a lot of money so you can keep it real! 
Toxins concentrate in fatty acids, so it is important to buy organic meat and dairy, nuts, seeds and oils. Strawberries, raspberries, celery, and apples contain high percentage of pesticide residues, same as sweet peppers, spinach, lettuce, kale, collard greens, potatoes, peaches, pears, nectarines, grapes and cherries. For blueberries some recommend organic, some recommend non-organic!
Non-organic options are best for avocados, bananas, onions, broccoli, cabbage, corn, pineapple, asparagus, sweet peas, mangoes, eggplant, cantaloupe, kiwi, watermelon, sweet potato, grapefruit papaya, tomato and mushroom.
Well, hope this resonates with you the way it does with me as many medical conditions are directly related to all the toxins we consume through our food and eating organic produce can help you big deal on PREVENTION
