Hello Rudi’s Readers!
So I can pretty confidently say that most of us prefer to eat organically but would rather pay the low prices of non organic foods. Well here are a few sneaky tips to see how you can shop organically on a budget!
Tip #1: Look for more local natural food stores. Sunflower Market, for example, often times has organic fruits and veggies for even cheaper than what I purchase non- organic at Safeway!
Tip #2: Try to find the organic alternative in your local grocery store. At King Soopers, they usually put the organic alternative to each of their products right next to the non- organic, if available and if it’s only a few cents more, I would splurge.
Tip #3: Test out wholesale food stores, like Sam’s Club and Costco! They have so many great vendors now with plenty of organic options like Rudi’s Organic Bread and Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bread and also Annie’s Mac n’ Cheese. (I’m a college student so those two were the only ones I really paid attention to but there were plenty of other brands and options to choose from)
Tip #4: Look back to my blog from a few weeks ago about the Dirty Dozen and the Clean Fifteen. If you feel like you can’t afford to purchase all of your foods organically, try picking the most important ones packed with the most pesticides first.
Tip #5: Go to Whole Foods Market on days like today! In Boulder, they’re selling 10 avocados for $10, such a steal! Pay attention to sales and coupons for your local natural food stores to get the best deal on your organic products
These tips have helped me out a ton and I hope they can do the same for you! They’ve allowed me to have so many organic food options that don’t cost me a fortune!
Have a Rudirific afternoon!
