Do you buy more organic or conventional produce? Do you know where your produce comes from at your local supermarket? Did you know both conventional and organic farmers use pesticides? Leah McGrath, corporate dietitian for Ingles Markets based in Ashville, North Carolina, recently visited local farmers near Ingles headquarters. Knowing where your food comes from and how it is produced is increasingly becoming more important to consumers. Purchasing organic or conventionally produced fruits and vegetables is a personal choice. Organic doesn’t make fruits and vegetables healthier than conventional. Whatever you purchase, make a goal to eat 5 or more fruits and vegetables a day.
