Eating organic

Given the amount of toxins and hormones in our food, it comes as no particular surprise that other bloggers are now also blogging on the danger of these food and also on how to afford to eat organic. One of the best blog on this is by Ashley over at her blog “The Frugal Model”. The link to her “10 easy ways to eat organic and healthy on a budget” is given  below:

Her advice is sound but mostly applicable for the readers in US. But you can take that advice and tweak and use it in just about any country 🙂

1. Check the websites of your favorite organic supermarkets for has weekly coupons for your favorite organic products.

2. Join different organic markets social media pages for coupons and promotions, or check on sites like  or for updated coupons.

3. Take some time to plan out your meals for the week according to the organic foods that are on sale or that you have coupons for.

4. Make your own organic snacks like kale chips, chia pudding and smoothies. You can find super easy recipes online that will save you from buying expensive store-bought products.

5. Frozen produce is always cheaper than fresh, especially if it is out of season. This is the same for frozen fish – which can be just as tasty and a fraction of the price.

6. Buy local produce when it’s in season and then freeze it so that you can eat it year round. For example, in the spring and summer spread berries on a sheet pan and freeze overnight and then store in jars for the fall and winter.

7. Double recipes for soups and stews and freeze the leftovers.

8. Since meat and dairy are the most important to buy organic, reduce how much of this you eat if you can’t afford organic. The easiest way to do this is save meat for your dinners only (choose high quality and smaller portions).

9. If you like chicken, buy a whole chicken to pay less per pound.

10. Buy unpackaged foods like oats, nuts, dried fruit and lentils in bulk dispensers. If you’re buying spices like this, bring a measuring cup so that you only buy exactly what you need for your recipe
