Okay, I have a local vons down the street to where I live... They have a very limited supply of organics. However, This week I tried the pizza bread wrap, but because I wasn't sure if I WOULD like it, I didnt want to have to waste money on organic produce, if I wasn't sure, So I purchased everything from VONS non organic with my lil discount card. I ended up liking the pizza bread, so next time I will def buy it all organic. But was wondering, do any of you do that? For 1st time recipes where you're not sure ya gon like it?
Or em I just cheap? LOL.

Half the time it's really hard to get all items organic, But I feel it's better than processed.

Compassion for ya... For me it's def available all organic, I live in Lost Angles... lol.
But the Whole Foods store isn't walking distance, and I dont wanna waste money on produce that will be waisted UNLESS - I know I will like it. Where as the Vons is cheaper, down the street, a good place to purchase the items to test out recipes with. So... we shall see..

Yep. I think I mentioned that in a different post and had to explain to everyone what I meant.
I don't like to spend a lot of money on raw food when there is the possibily I won't like it. just too expensive that way for me. Especiallly since I am a horrible cook. :(
But once I find I like something, then I will look into getting the best items I can afford!!

Agree...^ Make sure u love it. For me, I have to catch the bus, to get there I dont drive, To the whole foods store. Then if I buy alot of produce, coconuts, I have to take a taxi back, cuz I aint luggin all that onto a crowded bus then walk blocks to my apartment, then spend hours waiting for a recipe I dont like. But if I like it, It's no biggie. I get the pay off. So... it's better than a Big Mac right? lol And it shows ure not soooo dogmatic about the whole ORganic thing. I always strive for organic, but those times where you dont want the hassle, it's alright. Free of judgment for ya self and trying to be RAW PERFECT.

I don't always buy organic. I get organic produce boxes each week and I'm grateful to be able to get that. But sometimes it isn't enough and I have to buy more at the grocery store. Although there are plenty of stores around here and one has a HUGE organic section, the food isn't always fresh or in my price range. I use a lot of bell peppers and I realize that these are one food that should be organic but in the stores the organic ones are almost always withered and $6.99 a pound. I can get regular ones for anywhere from 79 cents to $1.50 a pound on sale so this is often what I buy.
If I am taking a large amount of food to some meal or event, I will usually not buy organic unless I know there are others there who prefer to eat organic. In that case I will buy organic and those people know I will. But most of the people I know don't care if the food is organic or not.
My husband is just plain weird. He will not eat food if he knows it is organic. He says it tastes weird. I haven't really noticed a difference in taste between organic and non organic for most foods but in some cases, I think the organic tastes better.
