Question from Annie: Ms. Dyer, do you eat ONLY organic food? I know it's best, but man, that really adds to the grocery budget. Can you suggest a way to eat better that's not so hard on the wallet?
Answers - Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. I eat primarily organic foods, when they're available and when they're affordable. I don't limit myself to organic foods because of the affordability issue and the stress involved with seeking only organic foods, either in the grocery store or in restaurants. But there are particular fruits and vegetables in particular that have higher concentrations of pesticides than others, so I do focus my limited budget on those with higher levels of pesticides. That list was determined and is available on the website for the Environmental Working Group. It's a great reason to grow your own.
