When buying produce, we all know that organic is better. Yes, its slightly more expensive, but your health is an investment. Also, buying produce that is local and seasonal will ensure that you are getting produce that didn't take days upon days to get on the shelf of your supermarket! Fresher is better!

Keep in mind, when buying produce, check the PLU codes to see :
Organic Produce is 5 digits and begins with the number “9"
Conventional Produce has a 4 digit number, and begins with a “4"
GMO Produce has a 5 digit number and begins with the number “8"
Checking out your local farmer's markets is a great way to get seasonal, local produce at a great price!
I'd love to know every one's thoughts on organic vs conventional? Do you think it's worth the extra pennies? I definitely do! Enjoy your day!
