This weekend DH and I have to go out of town, starting at noon Friday, and wont be back til Sunday evening. I am going to bring enough food to make lunches for at least DD for those days as well as bring her snacks but I know that we will end up eating at a restaraunt several times at least. I am also bringing along enough raw milk for her and probably bringing organic instant oatmeal and yogurt for breakfasts.
My question is this- What food do you get your kids and yourself at a regular restaurant(not an organic/local one) without feeling totally guilty like you are feeding them crap? (DD is 19 months, she wont eat salad, but I would even feel bad about salad because of all the pesticides!)
My thoughts were- fish(not tilapia or shrimp because they are farm raised. What other fish are usually farm raised?), oysters, and that was about it.....
I'm at a loss because I know all the terrible practices that go into everything else. Chickens are raised in cages in dark unclean buildings and fed only GMO grain, nothing fresh, given antibiotics in all their feed, and arsenic is added to their feed to keep pests to a minimum. Cows are pretty much the same except they also get added hormones..... I just cant put those things into my or my DDs body.
Other than packing my entire fridge, what other solutions are there? Where we are going there is just a small grocery store, I have no idea if they carry organic food, and we will not be able to cook anything because we will have no stove, pans, etc. I am bringing a microwave tho, even tho I am not a fan of microwaves either.
