Reasons To Eat Organic

I recently started bringing my lunch with my Mr. Bento. I’ve taken to doing 90% of my shopping at Trader Joe’s thanks to my roomie, yangbot! I love TJs, they have healthy, cheap food. While shopping there, I always notice they have the organic option of a lot of their foods but always opted to get the less expensive, nonorganic version just because I wasn’t sure if the price difference was worth it. So I did a little research to see what the benefits of eating organic food are:

1. it’s not covered in those poisonous chemicals
2. contains more vitamins and nutrients
3. it tastes better (does it really?)
4. better for the environment

I also read that in California, the price difference of organic food is less than other places so now I really feel like I should go organic!

I feel so much healthier bringing my lunch now. For lunch today I had tri tip, tomato soup, carrots and hummus, and edamame….all from TJs! Normally, I would be eating some fast food. Yay for Mr. Bento. I hope I can keep this up.

yay! You inspire me =) I haven’t used my Mr. Bento since my trial because I’m still on vacation. But that’ll all soon change once school starts =)

You have to be careful on this one. My aunt and uncle are really big on organic. And basically to them, it means that even the seeds come from an originally organic plant. That’s very hard to find these days, and with some products, the guidelines by which they slap on the organic label can be quite loose.

Not to burst your bubble or anything.
