I can eat beans and meat together (there's no problem with that in terms of kosher) but I usually don't. I tend to use beans to make vegetarian soups that my kids eat for after-school snack.  Then, they're less hungry at dinnertime and eat less meat.

I've recently discovered that I can buy mangoes at Costco. Since those aren't on the "dirty dozen" list, I've been buying those instead of organic peaches and nectarines.I've also been using far less celery.

That sounds cool! Thank you ruthie.

By the way (again sidetrack, sorry about that!), is celery juice made of celery? In Finland I don't remember to have seen that anywhere. Instead we have celeriac juice.

celeriac is fermented sprouted wheat juice or other grain.....
celery juice, simply juice celery through your juicer

What? No way... Celeriac is the root part of celery, which is the stem part of the same plant, when I have checked the dictionary?

Oh, that's true. Rejuvelac I haven't made it but know that could be really healthy to some people - maybe not so good for me, though.

So celery juice is obviously made of celery, not celeriac. [sigh]

Or buy... I don't have a juicer but a good blender (KitchenAid).

Can I safely buy any produce from the "dirty dozen" in non-organic form at Whole Foods, or does that only apply to their frozen fruit? Would it be safe to buy conventional apples or raisins there?

I would call and speak with the manager, their website does not imply anything of the sort about their non-organic produce. http://www.wholefoodsmarket.com/products/produce.php

You have to assume that non-organic means non-organic, even if it's in a natural foods store.

There are some exceptions;  that's why it's important to ask, as AKArtlover suggested.  There are a few non-certified farms that use organic growing methods, so that their 'non-organic' produce is perfectly safe.  But you can't know that unless you ask.

I buy organic produce as much as possible and in lower amounts because I'm less likely to throw any out from wasting like I might if I bought the cheaper (government subsidized) pesticide food

A lot of times our local farmers are beyond organic standards (and lower price because no middle man). That's why farmer's markets are so great.
