Eating Disorder and Obesity Therapy Tool: Eating Organic on a Budget

“Making informed nutrition and fitness-related decisions can be somewhat overwhelming for those in therapy for eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, bulimarexia, binge eating disorder) and obesity. To this end, I’ve compiled a set of handouts to provide handy reference guides to both my readers and clients. You can view all my Nutrition and Fitness Handouts here. Be sure to check back frequently, as I am always adding new handouts to my list!”

The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has recently published a list of conventionally-grown produce that are highest in pesticide residue, and a list of conventionally-grown produce that are lowest in pesticide residue.

The foods that are highest in pesticide residue include:

  • Apples
  • Celery
  • Strawberries
  • Peaches
  • Spinach
  • Nectarines – imported
  • Grapes – imported
  • Sweet bell peppers
  • Potatoes
  • Blueberries  –  domestic
  • Lettuce
  • Kale/Collard greens
The foods that are lowest in pesticide residue include:
  • Onions
  • Sweet Corn – should be purchased organic, if you are concerned with GMOs

  • Avocado
  • Asparagus
  • Sweet peas
