I started trying to eat organic about 3 years ago and slowly have incorporated more and more of it into our diet. Recently I have had it on my mind that I need to hone my skills and really find better ways to make the most out of our meals because the truth is that it is more expensive to eat organic. I hope that eventually the cost will go down and be affordable to everyone. But in the meantime I am always searching for the best and cheapest organic products. My sister turned me on to the Natural Grocers (http://www.naturalgrocers.com/store-locations/boise) it is a pretty reasonable for organic products I was pleasantly surprised. Best part it is less than 2 miles from my house. I initially decided to go organic because of the pesticides but the more I learned about the differences especially the growth hormones and how they would affect my daughter and her development that sealed the deal for me. With all the things that are against girls growing up modest with sexual integrity I figure she doesn’t need breast and a period at 8 years old thrown into the mix. I have so many more reasons all valid but it comes down to organic food is what is best for my family and I am trying to do my best to keep our food healthy and all natural. I would love input, recipes, tips, and to know where you find yummy healthy organic food the Treasure Valley. 🙂 Below is a helpful chart of foods to avoid and food that are safe for those of us who struggle to buy organic.
