Hi my name is Jennifer. I have an 18 month old. We really want to start eating as healthy as we can. Do you have any tips? We dont have any health food stores but a big grocer does carry some organic veggies and other products. Since I cant find it all organic, and we wont have farmers markets in the winter, can someone suggest a good way to wash my produce? I hear that vinegar is good, but I dont know how much. Or what to do. We arent vegetarians, but we are cutting down to grass fed bison, and free range organic chicken. I know enough to stay away from processed and packaged foods. We dont like soy or tofu. We only buy the free range organic eggs. Hmm thats about all we have been doing, eating lots of salads, but even tho I have been only doing this two weeks, I am getting tired of it. Also, can anyone reccommend good shampoos for toddlers? Thank you so much, and I must say, I am enjoying lurking here! Jennifer
You sound like you're doing great! We only do salads when salad greens are in season (it is a perk of being best friends with an organic farmer who grows salad greens!) There is a list somewhere around here about what veggies and fruits to buy organic if you're on a limited budget, but it doesn't sound like you are.
For shampoo, I'm no help, we don't even use it for the little ones. WEll, no, once I bought a California Baby shampoo and liked it.
If it's hard for you to get organic foods because of your location, have you looked into joining/starting a buying club? They are cooperative natural food warehouses that deliver food to lots of towns.
