Shopping for organic foods

So far I have found the best place to shop for organic food and lots of great choices is Central Market. It's like going to Toys are us for adults :) There are other places like Whole foods as well.

They have weekly specials, coupons in the mail and I am finding their prices to be equal to or even better than places like Wal Mart and Target.

For instance, organic 2% milk is cheaper there than Wal Mart & Target. However it is nice that these larger stores are now carrying many choices for organic and healthier foods.

My favorite things to get at Central Market are ~ milk, chicken, ground beef, bison meat and lunch meat. All organic with no hormones, preservatives, nitrates,etc. Of course all the fruits, veggies, whole grain breads, granola, herbal teas and coffee.

Eating organic is something I think everyone should consider, not just when you have a health crises. My thought is "pay now or pay later". There is such a rise in breast cancer, all cancers and children developing too early ( hormones) not to mention all the other health issues we have. This is just one way to live healthier and hopefully prevent disease and illness by making smart, healthy food choices.
