what do you mean the organic thing?  We don't always eat organic, we go off of price.  We do plan on growing a garden this year though, so we'll have our own organic foods this summer :)  I haven't noticed a difference and don't think there worth the price.  We do, however, have a very good farmers market, so when that's going we usually get veggies there as they are better/fresher, most are organic, and they cost less.

I wanted to go organic for produce but price wise it is crazy. I try and wash my vegetables as much as possible to keep away from pesticides. For veggies I buy a lot of it frozen b/c DH is not a huge fan really and it's a waste when I try and eat it on my own. As far as other things...I try to keep away from them...like processed foods. I am keeping away from that mostly.
Like cocacolapanda- we will be growing some things in a garden this year as well. Mmmm tomatoes!!

yeah what do you mean organic thing? I eat a lot of organic stuff, about 60% of what we eat is organic. We live in a small town and organic stuff is hard to come by, or we'd definitely do more. I hope to grow some stuff in a garden this year as well... that would be fun!!
...We tried last year but we ended up putting our daughters playground set over our garden! ha ha!

Organic is great, it's the way I like my food. Pesticide and hormone free!!

Thanks ladies !
I eat alot of organic veggies, milk and yogurt, hopefully if all goes well i think i want to nurse. I am gonig to try to order organic beef since the omegas are 3 x higher and i am alergic to fish but i am on an omega supplement.
My dad has an organic garden so that is great but seasonal.

do you girls do organic seasonings? or is that going over board.

I don't do organic seasonings... but I don't think it's overboard, whatever you want to do is up to you! If you want organic seasonings... go for it!!

I don't do organic seasonings either, we have a food budget (thanks to hospital bills from Pregnancy/D&C), so too much organic just doesn't fit in our budget.
