Why does it seem like everything that is good for you costs more?

I would like to buy more organic products for my family and I, but where to start was a big question. Another hurdle for me was the price of organic food.

I've been changing the way I grocery shop by using coupons, buying what's on sale, and stockpiling.

Now I'm ready to introduce more organic foods. It seems coupons for organic foods is becoming more and more popular. But which foods will we receive the most benefit from? So maybe I can introduce the organic food using coupons and making it a bit more affordable.

I did some research, googled around and found there was a list of the five best choices in buying organic food. The majority of the articles on the web all refer back to Dr. Alan Greene.

The top 5 foods to start out with that will give the biggest benefit according to him are:

1. Milk
2. Potatoes
3. Peanut Butter
4. Ketchup
5. Apples

Ok, so I'm looking at this list and think, that's easy enough! I've seen these items on sale and have seen some coupons for 3 out of the 5. I'm willing to give them a try!

Do you buy anything organic? If so what do you buy the most and like?

Two other really good websites are:

Earthbound Farm Organic. Right now if you go to their link above, take 10 minutes and answer a 10 question qquiz, they will send you this for free! They told me I passed the quiz and the bag will be mailed to me in June.

Go Organic! is another great site with excellent information and recipes. You can call them and they will send you a coupon book filled with over $18 worth of coupons plus some good information in it also. . Click the link above and it will take you to their contact page that lists their phone number.


  1. I filled out the quiz, but it doesn't seem to be taking my information. Maybe I should try with Internet Explorer instead of Firefox.

    We don't buy many organic foods, but that will change soon. I signed up for shares in an organic CSA farm, so I'll be getting fresh organic produce every week starting in May.

    I think it's important, but our budget is usually too tight to spend the extra money for them. :(

  2. Yes, the problem was that I was using Firefox. Everything went through fine with Internet Explorer. Other readers might find this info helpful.

  3. I knew you were gonna post this once I put it on the GC! Glad you did! Gotta make sure as many people see it as possible. The quiz not only gives you a free bag but you learn alot in the process.

  4. Annie I'm glad you were able to get it to go through. I thought you would enjoy one of these bags. My budget used to be too tight to buy organics before I started grocery hounding, but now that my stockpile is growing I find myself with a little extra in the budget and can scout out some organic deals.

    amiyrah I'm glad you posted the link to the earthbound farm site and free bag. I was thinking the same thing you were... spread the word. You really need to post it on your blog too! Did you ever get the go organic earth day coupons I posted the link for? I got mine Monday.

  5. Thanks for the heads up re the organic bag Lisa.

    I totally agree re organic foods. Before we left England, they were going strong on it over there. Catching up slowly here, but I wish it were faster.

    Also wish there were organic farms near here.

    Strawberries are another must for organic fruit. Carrots are better organic, also, and any of the greens.

  6. Thanks. I enjoyed this post.

    Here is my new blog:


    I have delted the old one and started fresh.
