apple sauceWhat should I buy organic if I’m on a limited budget?

As a kitchen coach, I probably get asked that question more than any others. If I’m in an expansive mood, my answer can quickly veer into eye-glazing territory. I’m pretty passionate about organic food and tend to get long-winded when discussing things like the Dirty Dozen and Clean 15, the reasons why we want to avoid GMOs, the potential health risks of chemical pesticides, and, finally, how to clarify priorities since organic can be expensive.

But if I’m ever pressed to pick one single food to buy organic, the answer is quick and easy: apples.

Yes, you need a peanut butter mixer

I have to admit that I’m not much of a peanut butter fan, but my nephews were coming to stay with me for the weekend so I picked up some kid friendly organic foods for them.
