as much as we would like to, not all of us have the luxury of shopping the high end organic products from the natural foods stores. So, what are your tips for chosing healthy prodcuts, while on a budget, for your family?
We aer currently down to a one small income household temporarily, so we buy organic when we can...but when we can't...
-we buy fruits and veggies that are seasonal. Here in SC recently we were able to get local peaches as low as $0.70 a lb
-Fresh veggies are best, but frozen are still a healthy cheaper alternative. I try to stock up when local grocery stores offer really good sales on their frozen veggies
-I've noticed a lot of grocery stores are jumping on the organic bandwagon with "generic" organic. "Nature's place" organic is a brand I've been able to find at Kroger and Food Lion, and it's hardly any more expensive than the non organic store brands.
