  1. I buy from the grocery store but only because we don’t have markets where I live. It’s a small community so all the local farmers sell their items through the store! Otherwise I would buy from them directly. If the shelves are empty of local produce I try to buy other organic & fair-trade produce. Organic bananas (example) are only 20p more than the non-organic ones. I also prefer homegrown vegetables and herbs etc 🙂

    • We live by the Dirty Dozen list. I have it on my refrigerator, next to the grcroey list. We buy as much organic as we can (even on the clean list) because of the environmental impact. But we rarely will buy the Dirty Dozen if we cannot get organic.

  2. Every single thing I buy is USDA-approved onrigac much to the chagrin of my wallet. But, what I don’t like is going out to eat and not being able to tell if what I’m eating is really onrigac or not dun dun dun dun

  3. We are eating less meat these days, which makes up for the cost dirnefefce between organic/natural meat and the conventional stuff. I also buy in bulk at Wild Oats (recently purchased by Whole Foods), which also saves. I buy large tubs of plain yogurt and add my own fruit or granola.I try to stay away from processed foods– buying dried beans rather than canned, things like that.
