Organic Splurges
Shopping for groceries can be stressful and expensive especially if you don’t know when to splurge on organic fruits and vegetables. We often hear about organic foods, but what does “organic” really mean?

What is organic?
In order for crops or produce to be organic, they must have been grown in safe soil that does not contain synthetic pesticides, bioengineered genes (GMOs), petroleum-based fertilizers, or sewage sludge-based fertilizers. Products that are labeled organic must meet and maintain specific requirements.

While your first instinct may be to get everything organic, it can be extremely pricey and isn’t always worth the splurge.
