Going Organic

Over the past few weeks, I have been feeling compelled to go organic. I know how hard this is going to be. It all started with watching Jon and Kate Plus 8. Seeing her only feed her 8 kids organic food was inspiring to me. Then, at our Mops meetings, there is a family dealing with their son's cancer. They have decided to go all organic to keep the cancer away. She is telling everyone to go organic. I really took those words with me. I know that it is important to give our family the best. After all, our bodies are our most important thing. So, no matter the cost, I am going to try to start switching. I have found organic mac and cheese, beans, cereal, and snacks at a local discount store. Now, I have found Farm Fresh Delivery. I am very excited about this. We will now have organic milk and vegetables delivered to us. This is quite costly, but I know it is worth it. We will have to give up in other areas of our purchasing. I will no longer be in Stampin Up starting next month, so that will be some extra money to go towards this.
So, we have started switching, but not all things will be organic yet. We will slowly get there. I just thought it would be important to get the things we eat the most first. I respect everyone who is doing this and I will take any suggestions....
Have a great Friday!

We are going organic too. Not everything HAS to be organic, and I know Julie sent us all the "dirty dozen" list. It's veggies/fruit that MUST be organic. Let me know if you need it again. I LOVE my organic food! It tastes sooo much better. Target carries Archer Farms organic foods,a nd they are reasonable and soooo good!

I stumbled upon your blog through CWO's blog roll and am amazed at Christ's confirmation to me- I've been feeling the tug in my heart to go organic for a few weeks now (b/c of John and Kate, too! lol) and today I've REALLY been feeling it. Reading your words totally confirmed it to me, thank you.
