Great information! Going back to Stonyfield! I bought the YoBaby and much more organic when my little one was a wee one. Then due to finances and convenience began buying other brands and not as much organic.
Really makes me think - why I would compromise now? I prefer to buy organic. I can look at other areas to compromise and give my family healthier meals.
Interesting about the cattle. Organic cows live with much less stress to the system. They aren't such heavy producers of milk and they don't have the hormones and the corn diet, so they are living a healthier lifestyle for them. Asking an animal to produce the maximum burns them out quickly, which is why commercial chickens have such a short production life (six months to one year, I believe).
I like organic fruit and vegetables if the quality is good. I really like to grow my own herbs if I can. I think the number one thing I want in an organic form is eggs, because organic brown eggs from truly free range chickens taste so incredibly good. If I could, I'd like to by a share in an organic steer, because the taste of grass fed meat is so much better to me.
Hi Elaine I use organic yogurt and my salad greens are organic , if the price is in a similar range I will coose organic but if it is more than 10 cents a pound more I buy regular . Organic isn;t that reliable because the pesticides they spray on plants in the regular field drifts over to the "organic" someimes the fields are next to each other . so there really isn;t any totally organic food unless you grow it yourself ..
