Lately I have been thinking more and more about the food we eat, mostly what striked my really wanting to go all organic was seeing something on TV about how chickens were treated. I was seriously appalled by how sickly chickens are treated and how they are being pumped full of hormones and most can barely walk. Totally creeped me out and has turned me off of the chicken in super-markets. Thankfully the ground beef we had this past year was from my dad, they got an organic cow from a local farm and had it butchered into every cut of meat you can imagine, and they shared with us! We are going to get in on that action next time!
I have always done organic milk once Vincent made the switch to cows milk and lately it has just been really getting to me that I should be buying everything organic. I mostly have been hesitant because I am a HUGE saver when it comes to grocery and am always out to get a great deal...But am I getting a great deal for the health of my body and my family's body? Probably not.
This week I am going to shop at Whole Foods for our groceries, I know I am probably going to choke when I see our bill but I think that shopping there will keep unneeded snack items from jumping in the cart (minus my favorite Pirate's Booty) and will help keep us healthier! It will also help aid in the post pregnancy weight loss for me! :) BONUS!
Lets hope the saying "Whole foods, Whole paycheck" does not apply! HAHA
Here is to us being happier and healthier!
