  • Organic food is way healthier and so worth it IMO. The best way to introduce it to your family is to just buy it. You may have to experiment with some things to find which ones you like more. But just start buying it and go from there.

  • You could start by trying Juice Plus a Whole Food Nutraceutical which is made of a variety of 15 fruits and vegetables and two grains Oat and Rice (Is GFCF free) and fruits and vegetables in it are herbacide and pesticide free. Heard how 60% of Juice Plus is organic would be 100% but the supply just is not there yet. One of the benefits of Juice Plus is it's economical when you consider the variety of fruits and vegetables your getting on a daily basis and that those fruits and vegetables are vine ripened and then picked. Most organic and regular fruits and vegetables are picked before ripening and that leads to lower nutrient value in the the fruits and vegetables. Juice Plus has clinical research behind it and to find out more my website is and email is By the way Juice Plus does change your taste for food in a positive way. Eileen

  • organic is also more environmentally friendly since they dont use chemicals and tends to be more locally produced so its not shipped as far reducing that pollution as well. Costco has a lot of Organic produce and products and very reasonable prices if you have one in your area

  • Organic definitely tastes better and has more nutritional value. It also usually has fewer chemicals and preservatives. If you can't grow some of the veggies/herbs yourself, then find a farmer's market near you (because their produce is usually more economical) and a local farm to purchase from or a co-op to belong to. If those aren't good options for you, then, Trader Joe's and Whole Foods has some other great selections, too.
