Which would you or do you buy?  

An organic neurtral food or a non-organic beneficial?

Let's see where this goes....

Well it depends..
I buy most food organic except meat - other than minced meat and pork( yes I cook that - once in a while for friends or just not to go crazy....) I simply can´afford organic meat and it is hard to get organic meat except for the pork and minced beef...

BUT If I crave red peppers, eggplant or watermelons (beneficials) and I can´t get them organic - especially the watermelon is hard to get- I get the non organic. However I almost never eat regular peppers from Spain they are just sprayed tooo much.
I go for the danish ones in season...
I really don´t think you can choose between organic neutral and reg. beneficials.

I eat plenty of neutral food mainly organic version -without it my diet would be boring amd difficult to handle.
Like: no eggs, no lettuce, no onions, no apples, no spelt flour etc... I can go on- lots of fine food....

I buy organic grains and fruits/vegetables whenever possible, but as Henriette states above, organic greens aren't easy to find here. So we grow our own...

Organic meat... If I can get free-range I choose that before organic.

Reason: I choose organic where it benefits the environment and/or the animals' welfare. So organic grains and greens are a no-brainer, but when it comes to meat, it's more tricky - at least here in DK.

Organic isn't always better:
Example: organic lifestock aren't allowed any preventive treatments (not even against parasites), so in a long number of cases, it has been seen that organic lifestock suffer unnessecary from parasite-attacks.
Maybe you think - "ah, what can a few fleas or worms do?" - but I assure you: They can eat a sheep half up alive... before it comes to the farmer's attention.
AND some organic farmers try to avoid using antibiotics and other drugs because the (what's it called in English? Detention-time? =The time that has to pass after a medical drug-treatment before the animal can get slaughtered) is 3 times longer for organic lifestock than for conventional. So an organic farmer loses more money that way.

Of course - not every organic farmer thinks this way - but just like not every conventional farmer is a villain - every organic farmer isn't a saint either!

Ugh - if just the world was simple and you could just assume that organic = ideal. But it isn't so. The world is complicated - especially when you begin to question things and find your truth.

Much easier to not use you brain...! (That seems to be what most of this planet's population choose to do anyway... )

say also, that here it is + - normal to buy organic, cause the country is that little, that mostly of the imported stuff is not organic, but then...swiss labels are + - all organic .....one point for this
country

and then it's meant = read the labels

As a general rule, I would go with the non-organic beneficial over an organic neutral.

Hmm . . . in general, I'd go with non-organic beneficial over organic neutral. I do this mostly with meat, mainly because I'm on a very limited budget and when it comes to buying one pound of ground buffalo or two pounds of ground chuck, I have to go with the chuck because it's enough to get me and roomie through the week. When I can, I buy the good stuff. When I can't, I buy lots of bennies and work hard to make good recipes that help me heal. Life is nothing if not compromise

i agree with apositive. i buy conventional pineapple, and sometimes broccoli. beneficial is more important to me when it is just produce.

but i do think differently when coming to the meat section... the biggest debate...organic chicken...or conventiol meat?? im always for the organic chicken.

what about supplements? organic benefical>organic neutral>conventional benefical.

I don't remember that from LR4YT, but other people I studied with recommended bleach (but only Clorox, for some reason) - 2 tbsp. per gallon of water, or something like that, and soak things for 20 minutes.  Sounds bizarre?  Try it, though.  See whether you don't think things taste better.

If you don't want to use bleach, you could try food grade peroxide. A few drops in the wash water works pretty well to clean up most things. Bleach was probably suggested because it kills all bacteria.
