I was doing so well. I stared couponing, meal planning and saving money!!! That was until Sunday night. My husband and I were talking Sunday night after my little one had gone to sleep. He was telling me about a film that everyone at his work had watched and recommended, but with caution. He went on to explain that it was about eating organically. Well, my initial reaction was OK, let’s watch it! I mean one more push for spending money on “fancy” groceries was not going to affect my thinking. That is what I thought, but I was wrong, terribly wrong.
Let’s just say that my husband was given the “sugar coated” summary of this film and we were shocked. Honestly, before watching this film, I never bought organic. I did not think there was that much of a difference with the exception of the price tag. I am also not one of these individual who plants vegetable gardens or can cook everything from scratch or even wants to for that matter! But I do strongly believe that all of us have a right to know what is in our food and where it is coming from. The film is eye-opening and has led me to begin my switch to organic. I have started slowly and will begin my switch starting with meat and dairy. Unfortunately, I am not sure if couponing will even work for these items any more, but my husband and I think it is best for our family.
Eating organically is not right for every family and I do not think that eating organically makes my family better or healthier than anyone else; it is based on personal preferences. I do strongly suggest that you watch this film. It is very valuable, but beware, as it is harsh and if you are not ready or even willing to make the switch to organic, you may want to wait on viewing it! The film was created by Food Inc. and can be found by following this link: http://www.takepart.com/foodinc/film
If you do watch it, please share your thoughts….I would love to get some other points of view.
Here’s to Happy and Healthy Eating!!!!!by
