Hey! I am interested in switching over to natural / organic diet as my doctor says that I should as soon as I can. I am looking for affordable natural or organic food to cure myself as I do not have too much money. Someone please help me out! Thanks!

    Joshua,

    If you want organic and are on a budget, you may find it helpful to start with the \"worst\" foods. There was a lot of research done on produce and which foods found the biggest difference (lower pesticides, etc) by switching to organic. They found 12 foods, The Dirty Dozen, that by switching to organic you will reduce your pesticide exposure by almost 90%.

    These foods are:
    peaches
    apples
    bell peppers
    celery
    nectarines
    strawberries
    cherries
    pears
    imported grapes
    spinach
    lettuce
    potatoes

    So you might want to start by switching these foods to organic first and working on the others as you find good resources or have more money. Good luck ^_^
