8 Foods You Must Eat Organic

Better Beef

Conventionally raised beef is healthy for neither you nor the environment and is extremely cruel to animals.

However, if you pick out meat that is “Certified Organic,” at least you can be sure that you are avoiding the hormones and antibiotics.

If the treatment of the animals is important to you, make sure you look for the “Certified Humane” label.

A Good Egg

This might be the most important item for you to change if you and your family consume a lot of dairy.

The organic label refers to dairies that have to feed the cows organic grain, use no growth hormones or antibiotics, and give the cow access to outside pasture.

Organic eggs are great because the certification means that the chicken hasn’t touched a grain that isn’t organic.

However, they can be somewhat more expensive.

Rice To Riches

Conventional rice crops rely on heavy pesticide usage.

The groundwater around most rice paddies in both California and Asia has been found to be heavily contaminated.

Buy organic brown rice in bulk when you can, as it’s less expensive than in a box.

Also, you might want to make sure that any baby’s rice cereal, often their first food, is organic.

Wheat For The Wise

Pesticide residue has been found in many leading brands of breakfast cereal.

Processed foods made with corn (corn chips, tortillas, popcorn, and corn bread) are among the top foods that are likely to expose children to unsafe doses of organophosphate residue.

Ketchup

Since more than 75 percent of the tomatoes grown in the United States are used for processed foods, including tomato ketchup, it makes sense to make sure the tomatoes are organic.

Tests have found that organic brands contain more than 50 percent more antioxidants, and it’s a great way to get these valuable nutrients into kids.

Pure Peanut Butter

Most peanut farms in the United States use conventional farming practices, including the use of fungicide to keep the mold at bay.

Since these fungicide and pesticide residues can mount up when our kids eat peanut butter almost every day, it makes sense to switch to the organic kind.

Organic peanut butter is also less likely to contain additives like high-fructose corn syrup.

An Apple A Day

Apple juice, applesauce, and whole, crunchy apples should be organic whenever possible.

Apples are one of the top pesticide-heavy fruit crops, so if you and your family eat a lot of them, switch to organic.

Strawberries

Strawberries are the most heavily contaminated produce item in the United States.

We've included them on this list since conventionally grown strawberries are available year-round and should be avoided at all costs.

Unfortunately, that's all the time we have for today.

We hope this information helps and you found some value in this edition!

Until next time, we want you to,
