Once we are back in the states and have the option to shop around, it might be an option, but german markets haven't really given in to the organic craze, so we do our best with the farmers markets and a combination of the bakeries here, the different markets like the fish market, and the commissary for stuff we want from home like cereal.
I think the food here has a lot less preservatives anyhow, and is overall more healthy.
Where on earth are you living in Germany??? There are several organic super market chains, with large stores and I have never ever had a problem to get organic food in Germany. In fact, we almost solely eat organic at our house and I have been eating that way since I was born 24 years ago.
Have a look here to find an organic store near you:www.alnatura.dewww.basic-bio.dewww.biomarkt.dewww.oekonova.de/23biob.htm
Apart from that you will find organic foods in large supermarkets like Rewe, Tengelmann, even discounters like Aldi, Lidl, Plus, Norma and the like sell organic goods. Even small towns have organic stores (mind you, they are small but you get what you need!), so-called 'Reformhaus' stores sell organic food (www.neuform.de
) and you can even get organic produce delivered to your door (www.oekokiste.de)
. Please also have a look at www.demeter.de
, the organisation for bio-dynamic foods and www.bioland.de
. And ontop of allof that I can also tell you the URLs of a few online stores that deliver everything to your home with DHL.
Now how's that?!
If I can help you any further please feel free to PM me
And to answer the OP - I do not judge people who buy non-organic foods as we can only buy that when DH earns enough. But what I judge (and I admit being guilty of that) are people who solely buy junk food and either are overweight or have children in tow - that's something that I can not understand!
