Organic anyone...?

I'm turning to all you in the "blogosphere" to see if you you have any tips on eating organic. As part of our New Year's resolutions (which I am so far..a whole 7 days into..am keeping), we are trying to be more healthy which includes our eating. We already purchase organic items, but have never gone fully organic. I try to buy things for the kids such as their juice, produce, or veggies. I LOVE the organic beef that we buy. It is only about $1 more at Target and tastes amazing! You can tell just by looking at it that it is healthier. If you haven't tried it, you should just once!

Anyway, do any of you eat organic? If so, how do you afford it? Where do you shop? Share your wealth of info...pretty please with a cherry on top! I'll be your best friend (as my first graders use to get the mallets for the Orff instruments next).

Hi Julie,

I followed your blog over here from Kristen's blog. Did I know you in high school? I think so but I'm not sure...

Anyway - I do a lot of organics. 2007 was the year that I did a ton of 'going green' in our eating and living. I'd be glad to share links and info with you if you'd like!

I think the best place to start is with meat, dairy, and the 'dirty dozen' of produce. Do you live in the Chicago area? If so I can give good recc's on which stores stock good prices for organics and what's available.
