The more I watch Dr. Oz and the more I read... I am thinking about taking my family Organic & Gluten Free.
I don't want to get all crazy, I don't want to be a radical, I just want to do what is best for us. To give honor to our bodies that God has given us. We got some health issues that need to be dealt with, and I have been praying about wisdom and discernment.
I am scared when i think about the fungicide (that was banned in the US!) that is in oranges from Brazil, and Tropicana and Minute Maid continue to use these oranges, and they both told the FDA about it... and no recall. So we will buy Florida's Natural from now on, it's a little bit more expensive, but I ask myself, what is the cost to my family if I don't.
The more I read about Gluten Free the more I think it is right for our family. And Organic... all those poisons... yikes!
I went to Whole Foods today, which I love but I began to get overwhelmed by the cost of everything. I have also decided that I am not throwing away what we have, I will use it up, and then go from there. I've gotten a few different kinds of rice noodles to try, a few packages for cakes & brownies that are GF (Gluten Free), I spent quite a bit of time at Kroger this evening checking prices (which I am going to make a matrix for pricing). I am also going to start googling for coupons. Also going to invest in a pressure cooker to start canning my own beans because it's expensive to buy them in a can if they are organic, I can just buy them bulk (organic) and do it myself.
I am going to start Organic with the Dirty Dozen. And go from there.
Yes, I know it's more expensive but again, what is the cost of our health. Also know, we are not going to be those kind of people who show up with food at your house. We will be happy to eat what you make us :)
