Organic or Non Organic December 20, 2008

We probably know organic is better for us, but sometimes at the expense of our paycheck it just isn’t worth it. I was reading an article in Runners World this month and came across a piece of info I found interesting and wanted to share:

“By eating the organic versions of the dirty dozen, you can reduce your exposure to contaminants by 90 percent,”

Can you believe that? This is great news … for our health and especially our wallets!

If you don’t know what the “dirty dozen” are check it out: http://www.foodnews.org/

 

Tips to buying organic and saving a buck:

-shop the farmers market in your area

– check weekly what is on sale at the local grocery stores

– if you have a Trader Joe’s in your neighborhood check them out (usually they are fairly inexpensive)
