Over the years we've slowly developed some eating habits I;d really like to stop and that includes me picking up quick and convenient food items or meals to make more time in my day to get other things done.
I'm trying to make some big changes in my family's eating and also our food budget. Along with that I have to deal with the time factor of making more foods at home, which is a big challenge all by itself.
In planning food purchases and meal plans I always get caught up in the organic or local arguments that I can never settle in my own mind and commit to one or the other or some sort of balance of both. And with budgeting that throws another element into the mix since organic is almost always more expensive. So, I'd like to know what everyone thinks regarding organic versus local and how you work the cost of into it when you're on a budget. What works for you and do you find yourself absolutely choosing some things organic over others that are local and vice versa? And how does it all work out on the budget end?
