We are now about 90% organic and eating meat only on weekends has really improved our digestive systems and eased this all into our budget as well. However, we still crave a hamburger occasionally and get take-out, but I want to keep that to 1-2 times a month.
We have learned a lot during the past few years of this transition and one is that we can no longer eat hot dogs without ill effects! I also can no longer eat sandwich meat without getting intestinal issues. I can however stomach the no-nitrate/nitrite, natural sandwich meat but we rarely eat it. My daughter gets sick every time she gets a hot dog or corn dog seemingly anywhere, so we have just eliminated them from her diet.
The most expensive switch was the cheese. Here is the cost rundown:
Non-organic cheddar = 20 cents per ounce
Organic, grass-fed cheddar = 34 cents per ounce
Non-organic mozzarella = 19 cents per ounce
Organic, grass-fed mozzarella = 44 cents per ounce
Shredded cheese contains an additive that makes it not stick together, cellulose, which is indigestible! If you shred your own cheese, you won't have to worry about it, sometimes convenience puts your health at risk, which do you hold as a priority? Imagine if we all switched to God-intended food and left the chemicals in the laboratories for the rats to die from. Less rats and healthier people.........what a concept!
