1) Buy organic for certain fruits and veggies. Try to avoid the "dirty dozen". The 12 on the left are far more likely to be saturated with pesticides for either the thin skin or growing practices.
Starting on Christmas, G discovered his love of whole apples and now eats one apple every.single.day. Organic apples by the pound are very pricey. But, our grocery store also sells bags of apples. The organic bags contain 10 apples and are only $1.00 more than the equivalent size bag of regular. For 10 cents more a piece, it's not a huge cost factor but, could be making a difference in the health of my rapidly growing, apple-loving toddler.
And, really, isn't this happy face worth a buck every 10 days? I think so! I don't know if these small changes will yield a huge benefit in the long run but, it certainly won't do any harm.
