Looks like I did it again, another month and no updates! Sorry about that. There really wasn’t much to update about. Eating organic wasn’t as tough as I thought it would be. Everything was pretty much more expensive that its non-organic counter part. I shopped in markets I usually don’t like Whole Foods.
I pretty much ate at home most of the time. And thanks to my first time ever built-in cheat, I was able to eat out and still remain social. The built-in cheat got me a lot of grief all month but I didn’t want to remain a shut in all month so it was worth it.
This month however I do plan on being a little bit of a shut in since I have no choice. Eating out just isn’t an option. I do have a business trip planned but there’s no way around it, I’ll have to eat out. It’s a little hard to cook in a hotel room.
Wow, 22 days and no post! I think I might have to post a whole series of lost episodes when this is over.
Well let me catch you up on things. Yes, organic is expensive. Thankfully, I can eat meat again but it is costly. I’ve done a few searches online and found that I can save some money on products from the manufacturers with coupons from their sites. Nice! That should help my pockets not go slim so quickly.
Basically there’s different distinctions for organic there’s USDA Organic and “uncertified” organic. The USDA seal has some tough rules behind it.
Since it’s tough to find organic items, I’ve decided that as long as the label indicates the item is organic (or partially organic) then it counts. This is usually the case for frozen items. Not every ingredient is organic so they list what is and isn’t organic.
Finally I was able to eat some of the same things from my Vegan days so some food choices were easy. So far things have been pretty easy. The food choices are more than I though and I’ve found organic chocolate which is a blessing. More updates to follow. I just have them queued up and need to be written down. Stay tuned.
