Organic Foods

I am able to find more and more affordable organic produce at the supermarkets these days.  I still love shopping the Farmers’ Markets, but I am finding even canned goods for use in recipes that are organic products.

There are certain things I will not buy unless they are organic.  One is strawberries.

Organic strawberry

Strawberries are on the list of the top ten foods that absorb pesticides the most.  I find the organic strawberries just taste sweeter and last longer. This organic peanut butter is more often than not, the basis of my lunch.  The list of ingredients?  Roasted dry peanuts…period.  I love the “lack of salt” taste!

Organic Black Peppercorns

I find it easy to find organic spices in the supermarket today.  They are comparably priced and sometimes even lower than traditional brands.

Other foods I buy only organic include 5 lb. bag of raw carrots, celery, apples, and lettuce.  I am making it easier by growing our own greens, tomatoes, cucumbers, bell peppers, herbs, green beans, and onions.

Tell me something you find organic that might surprise me.
