Organic Food For Beginners
Are you considering switching to organic foods? If so, check out this nice article about organic food from Chatelaine magazine. The article is presented in a very common sense manner that will help organic newbies get over common hurdles such as cost and if organic food really is better for you.
Here is a sample from Natural Selection by Diane Peters:
“I’m what you might call a lazy organic. I think organic food is better for me, but I can’t justify shelling out double for pesticide-free broccoli or buying frozen dinners that cost more than takeout. But I’m changing. I have a little guy at home in the high-chair stage and I pay a premium to ensure that his first foods contain fewer pesticides and antibiotics. Plus, my grocery store is making organic more affordable and available: organic baby food costs almost the same as regular, the organic produce section is growing daily, and I can pick up organic ice cream and tomato sauce at digestible prices. No wonder organic-food sales are jumping by 20 per cent every year.”
