Whole paycheck?

May 28, 2014
Have you ever heard the term “whole paycheck” when someone refers to buying organic? I have. I used to be the person that would complain about how expensive it was to buy healthful, organic food for my family. Then I got smart and learned how to beat the system.

Here are some the easiest ways to shop organic and still have money for the rest of your life.

1. Reduce the amount of organic meat you consume by substituting half the portion with organic beans.
2. Buy fruits and vegetables that are in season. This is a great site that lists all the fruits and vegetables for spring, summer, fall, & winter. http://www.fruitsandveggiesmorematters.org/whats-in-season-summer
3. Don’t buy pre-washed or ready to eat fruits and vegetables. They are double the cost.
4. Prioritize animal products. Meat and dairy are the most important to buy organic because of the combined risk of pesticide, anti-biotic, and cancer causing growth hormone exposure.
5. Double recipes and freeze the extra. This works great for soups and stews.
6. Join your favorite store’s social media page for special coupons and deals. They show up all the time for places like Trader Joes, Whole Foods, etc.

I hope this helps!
