At PuraVegan we strongly believe that organically grown food should be a priority. When making the transition to an organic kitchen keep in mind that certain foods carry more pesticides than others, often referred to as the dirty dozen. Below is a list of foods that are highest in pesticides and you should consider buying organic if possible:
Organic veggies have been studied and shown in some studies to have more nutrients than conventionally grown produce. Certain fruits even show higher capacity for antioxidant production. Scientists have theorized that plants grown without pesticides are forced to deal with the stress of insects, causing them to produce more antioxidant compounds, which helps humans prevent and reverse diseases. Lastly, many people find that organic food tastes better than its conventional counterpart, even when juiced. Buying organic is a wise choice!
