    We get organic produce no questions asked becuase I am afraid of how the pestasides,herbasides, whateverasides, hurt the farmers and other animals in the area.  We don’t buy meat as hunting/fishing is easier and cheaper for us, I try to get as organic as possible home cleaning products but I typically just end up making my own

    I don’t buy Organic really, only sometimes, but I do try and find as much “no spray” products as possible when it comes to fruit and veggies. I work in agriculture so I am well aware of what is being put on and in our food.

    Milk. Doesn’t seem to expire nearly as quickly for some reason. Honey is another splurge. But that’s just because it’s so delicious. 🙂

    I buy what I deem “important stuff” organic:  Dairy, Meat, Non-peeled fruits and veggies (e.g. apples, zuchinni, grapes)

    Milk always but, if my Fiance buys the non Organic kind from Costco I will drink it. I raise chickens so those months I eat organic eggs but I never buy organic eggs. I would REALLY like to eat only organic meat but I live very far away from the Whole Foods Stores.

    I am not stuck to only buying organic products, but I do only buy whole foods… I never buy anything processed or with refined sugar anymore.  Sometimes, when I get home from work and have to cook dinner, I wish I did!  I lost 20 lbs eating this way though, and my skin and hair are in better shape, so I guess it is worth it! Wink

    We use mostly organic. We would use all organic if it were available but we live in a rual area with no local Whole Foods or Trader Joe’s.

    we buy organic eggs, milk, and meat. I know it can get expensive (especially with meat) but I just feel better knowing I’m eating antibiotic free food. Food, Inc. also inspired me to start eating this way. Really changed my thought on things

    Mostly produce. However as far as meat we only use venison and buy our pork straight from a farmer who butchers their pig so I guess our meat is organic too.

    I try to buy organic when I can but I make a point to buy organic and free range eggs and milk.

    Can I ask about the taste of organic milk? I have this weird phobia with trying new foods and I was wondering what the taste is like compared to store milk. I always buy skim but have wanted to try organic milk.

    Eggs, cereal and celery because I think they taste better organic 🙂

    We try to get organic produce but sometimes the organic selection isnt that great. I need to start going to the Farmers Market more often. I also buy free range eggs, but not organic. I only buy organic milk. We stopped drinking non-organic milk a while ago and it has helped a lot with breaking out.
