Have you ever wondered whether or not you should spend the extra money on organic foods? I know I have. With summer quickly approaching, many of us will soon have access to a plethora of fruits and vegetables. Let's talk about the ones you should buy organic.
Years ago, I remember telling a girlfriend how we liked to focus on healthy foods at my house. I also remember that she raised her eyebrows and said, “Isn’t that a really expensive way to eat?” At that time, I was a single mom with three kids, and $70 usually got us through the week. But that got me thinking, "what was she spending on groceries?"
We’ve all heard about the benefits of organic fruits and vegetables. The arguments make sense. Less chemicals and pesticides in our food and on our planet. Sounds great, right? Until you get to the grocery store checkout lane and nearly have a heart attack from the sticker shock. But the cost shouldn’t stop you from putting the best produce in your body. Check out my favorite tips for eating organic without breaking the bank.
One of the more frequently asked questions on my blog is, “when was the first time you really felt a difference in your energy?” I love that question, because it has a supremely easy answer—when I cut out processed foods. Inevitably, the next question is something like, “How do you find the time?” or less eloquently, “Uh, do you have a real job?”
