I have never jumped on the organic wagon. Mostly, because I can't afford the lifestyle change it would cost to go organic- I would think that not adding pesticides would save the farmers money, therefore it should be cheaper, but this is not so. Also because I don't really see the pay offs of eating organic vs non organic. I am NOT putting down any of you that do choose to eat organic foods. In fact, I would love some education as to why you have chosen that more stressful style of grocery shopping and menu making.
I was at the grocery store the other day just getting the basics to make it through until the next paycheck came through, and I was observing the items the lady behind me was getting. She had a basket full of organic items, some bottled water and then some items I had to tilt my head at. Among her organic selections she also had a bag of nonorganic cheetos, some processed meat, and diet soda. This might be because I am uneducated in organics, but don't people typically eat organic foods because it's all natural, not processed and without additives? Granted, I don't know who she was buying any of those things for, but it made me wonder- Does it make sense to be a wannabe organic eater- eating some organic, but not all? Does it benefit you at all if you are not all in with the food choices? Or is that the reality of our food economy, that you just mix, match, and add organic in certain areas?
I don't get it. Someone please educate me on the world of organics.
