Eating Organic

And one more from my old blog, just wanted to get all my info I previously shared into this blog, enjoy!

Eating organic

Every winter I struggle through, hunting for organic fruits and veggies and where I live that can be tough because we don’t have a Trader Joe’s or a Whole Foods, we are relegated to the bits and pieces we can find at Giant, Bloom, Wegman’s, Walmart and Target and when I say bits and pieces I mean it, one time you might find 5 to 10 fruits and veggies and another it may be 2 or 3.  Sometimes organic berries are not to be found.  We have to travel about an hour for the Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s but it is worth it.  In the spring though things look up because the farmer’s market comes back and there is nothing more fun than shopping outdoors and finding the labor of love that the vendors bring to the table.  Even better is summer when our own garden produces fresh veggies for the dinner table.

Sometimes I get complacent and think aw heck why bother and then I find an article like this – 10 Dirty Fruits and Veggies and I am once again reminded why I don’t want to feed my family non-organic fruits and veggies, it is gross to think of all the chemicals on our food.  I wonder how can this be allowed?  Why aren’t we all more appalled by this?

I am thankful for the reminders to find clean food and seek out chemical free products.

If you think you can’t afford to live chemical free think again.  Today I found the veggie wash I use was on clearance at Bloom for .75 and Burt’s Bees Hair conditioner on clearance for $1.39.  Plus you should check out some of the online places that offer discounted chemical free products, list to follow.

Organic items from Amazon – they also have a subscribe and save.  I use this for my coconut oil and will now add toilet paper and paper towels and possibly a few more things.  Think of the gas you will save. – here you will find lots of great chemical free items, remember to read the ingredients though as some are only partially clean products and still may contain some chemicals.

If you are local and Quail Cove Farms delivers to your area this is a great place to get some organic foods and delivered to your front door too.  Quail Cove Farms
