Was wondering... how important is it to get organic with the Paleo diet?

How important is it to have organic veggies and fruit.... since you eat so much more on a paleo way of eating. Lets face it.... if you are picking up a salad or veggies when you are out.... they may only be slightly washed and usually not organic.

Wow..... 149 views so far and no comment. Guess Organic must not be that important.

Mark's Daily Apple had a link about this a while ago.

I can't remember the specifics, but I think he said if you can't afford it, don't stress it. But if you can, if you are eating a lot of something, that should be a clue to go organic on that item.

There are these lists of the top dirty foods you should buy organic, and I have found them to be conflicting. Some lists tell you don't bother with organic bananas, it doesn't matter once you peel them.

I have looked at organic potatoes. They are all growing eyes and look a little green. That could be more poisonous than the commercial ones, but I don't know. Solanine (or something like that) in green potatoes or potatoes with eyes is toxic too. I guess you just have to use your best judgment.

I think organic/local foods are a good idea for any diet. If I could afford the time and money to eat 100% organic/local produce and 100% organic/pastured/local/sustainable meats and seafood I would love to but it isn't completely practical for me right now. I do buy plenty of things organic/local/sustainable/pastured and have spent a long time over several years researching my choices. Ultimately everyone has to do this for themselves as its a cost-benefit analysis regarding your time, your money, and your health.
