Organic

Definition: Organic

Organic

Usually refers to "naturally produced" foods. It is food from plants and animals that have been grown without the use of any pesticides or synthetic fertilizer/chemicals or antibiotics, growth hormones or feed additives.

To be certified organic, products must be grown and manufactured in a way that follows the standards set in the country they're sold. In the US it's the National Organic Program Standards.

Organic just plain tastes better! Yeah, it costs a bit more but it's well worth the few bucks more on the weekly grovery receipt. Joni MItchell in "Big Yellow Taxi" sang "I don't care about spots on the apples, just leave me the birds and the bees" (this songs always pops into my head whenever I'm browsing the fruits at Co-op).

Crispet - great idea! I'll have to check out wholesale clubs and look at the prices there compared to my everyday grocery store.

Most organic choices are too costly. Its good to pick up organic veggies at a wholesale club though. One package (sealed bin) of fresh greens is $4 and it can make you a huge salad for about a week!

I admit that I'm not as good about this as I could be, but limited budget and means changes some of my choices when I'm at the grocery store. I'm hoping to get a little healthier this summer!
