Organic on a budget?
It seems, however, that my checking acccunt does not agree.
Organic food is expensive.
So here's the rub: I know its better. But I simply cannot afford to go all organic.
So here I am, feeding my kids food that's not organic thinking about all of the sprays and junk and possible outcomes with a smile plastered to my face as though everything were just fine.
Seriously, who can afford some of those prices?
What is there to do?
Here's a little list a friend passed on to make it a little easier. I keep it on my fridge to remember when I'm making my list.
Top five big-bad-meanies when it comes to pesticides. these guys soak up those chemicals like no tomorrow. Definitely buy these organic if you can:
The next five are not so bad. These you can buy conventional and not worry:
3) Sweet corn (yum!!)
4) Pineapple (super yum!!!)
5) Mangos (um, maybe you like them)
Do you buy organic?
