Want some chemicals with your grapes?
This week, Bon Appetit gives us a healthy reminder on when to buy organic. They make a few useful lists, decoding when the organic label is really for your health, and when it’s really just a higher price tag.
Here’s a hint: not surprisingly, the thicker-skinned fruits and vegetables are much less susceptible to pesticides. You now have permission to buy conventional bananas. And great news for the cabbage lovers among us (what, only me?): evidently, pests aren’t really cabbage fans – they clearly haven't tried this - so they’re treated with less chemicals overall.
