should spend the money to buy organic food? Some say that it is a waste of money because the food is not that much healthier than the non-organic option. Ok…to me, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to read between the lines…no, organic probably doesn’t offer much more nutrients than the non-organic option, but what they are not mentioning is that the organic version of produce does not have the chemical and pesticides covering them that the non-organic products do, and the organic foods do not contain the same types of sugars, dyes, “fillers”, and chemicals that the others do.
I am not judging those who chose not to or can’t afford to shop organic, I am just simply stating that the media will never convince me that I shouldn’t “waste” my money on what I believe to be healthier food for my family. I live by the ideal that America was a much healthier place years ago and I feel like part of that was because the meat/dairy/produce was “healthier” for you because it wasn’t so full of “stuff”like the food is today….again, just my opinion.
Yesterday was my “shopping day” to Whole Foods. They were having their grass-fed beef sale so I went down to “stock up” for winter! I can’t begin to tell you how much better the grass-fed beef tastes…leaner yet more flavorful and only $4.99 a
pound when they have it on sale. Since I was at Whole Foods, I picked up a few of our “staples” and will happily share a picture of them with you! If you haven’t already done so, you should do a little research on “organic”, not to be confused with “all-natural” food. You have to be careful that you are buying things with the “USDA” seal on them so you know that it is truly organic. Going organic has made a difference for my family!
