Eat Organic Cheaply, Part Deux

Okay, so if you're going to attempt to convert an entire family's diet from conventional to organic and continue to attempt to eat roughly the same way, well, you'll either fail or spend unbelievable amounts of money.

You CAN eat processed organic foods. They are quite tasty sure, but at twice the price of regular old conventional foods, well, that seems kind of silly.

Instead, perhaps, if you're striving for simply MORE organic and less conventional, you'll have more success by  picking and choosing the things that matter most to you and your family's needs.

For example, in our home the things that matter 100% the most are organic, free-range meats. The comparison between the two is unreal. So, for US, meat is king. It's also something we don't eat a lot of, so a couple of pounds of organic meat is do-able. If we had more sustainable, local options, believe me, we'd use them!

So, choose what matters most. Is it the pesticides on conventional produce? Or is it freeing yourself from conventional dairy products? Read up, and find ways to get what you need at it's most basic form locally. If that fails, then move to grocers who support organic farming and sustainability.

Be creative and find ways to get what you need. It doesn't have to double your food budget!
