Well, naturally, we put our house for sale, started building a new house, lived in an apartment between, yada, yada, yada. Short story: the habit of buying organics faded before it even began.
Now, since losing weight and becoming more focused on health issues in general, I want to return to buying organics and trying to slowing switch over to mostly organics over conventional foods.
I know everyone has their views on organics and whether they're "worth it" or not. Personally, the less unneeded chemicals I put into my body the better (imho).
Switching to 100% organics would be hard. VERY hard. So right now I'm just trying to move in that general direction. Most of our foods are still conventional and we still eat a lot more processed stuff than I'd like, but one step at a time, eh?
So yesterday I decided to head back to Whole Foods (Trader Joe's PLEASE come to Houston!!) and pick up a few items. I thought it might be neat to chronicle my "healthy" shopping trips, so here we go!
I picked up:
- Organic raw whole almonds
- Organic peanut butter
- Organic maple syrup (from the WF bulk selection)
- Texas grown mushrooms (conventional)
- Organic zucchini
- Organic onion
- Organic black olives
- Organic dried cranberries
- Soy crispets (for hubby - he's a crisp lover!)
- Bob's Red Mill Organic Flaxseed meal
- Bob's Red Mill Organic whole oats
- Ezekiel Organic whole grain bread
That's it! I have plans for all of this (in fact some already eaten!) and will be sharing that soon!
