My husband and I are going to start eating organic foods. My question is... What all do you get that is organic. All I've ever seen is chicken and just a few fruits. Do you get it at the regular supermarket or at a special grocery store?Answer Question

My son works at a special grocery store called Sunflower Markets that is in several western states that has great sales and we get a discount.
There is a list of fruits and veggies that are considered worth buying organic called The New Dirty Dozen; necturines, blueberries, kale, peaches, apples, cherries, strawberries, imported grapes, spinich, potatoes, bell peppers, and red rasperberries.
You can find lists of foods not worth the money tobuy organic. We get natural meat at Sunflower Market also.

Red rasperberries (like the spelling?) isn't on the new list. Celery is.
If you are going to use milk it's good it you can find a brand that's organic and local. There is so much wrong with milk, if you are concerned about the planet and you can easily switch to drinking water. It's healthier and you could still enjoy milk products.

For produce, we follow the "clean 15/dirty dozen" pretty carefully. You can get a copy (or iPhone app) here: http://www.foodnews.org/
We buy mostly organic grains, legumes and dairy.
We shop at Costco, Trader Joes, farmers markets in season, ethnic markets (if you are in the Chicago area, Fresh Farms is fantastic), occasionally Whole Foods.
Fell free to send me a message offlist if you have any questions.
