I thought perhaps this thread was about the t.v. show, "You are what you eat" with Gillian McKeith. Anyone watch that show? She advises people to buy organic as much as possible. She puts people on detox diets for 8 weeks and they look awesome after only that short period of time. I would love to do a detox diet but I am really struggling these days to just eat healthy as it is.

The way I figure, if the garbage food costs less money and we buy it, then really the COST is much too high. The damage to our bodies. I always try to buy organic. I know it can get expensive... that's why I have given up some other LUXURIES in my life (smoking, for one...) Amazingly, though. There is one particular food chain, here in Canada, where you can buy organic foods at really COMPARIBLE prices! Save-On-Foods (Used to be Overwaitea) I applaud them! They not only have produce, cereal, cookies... anything. Icecream, meat, you name it. If there is an organic alternative, they stock it. The prices are really reasonable! Also, organic eggs are a good alternative to meat, and so is wild seafood. (Not farmed) Fruit and veggies are about the same price as non-organic... at THIS store anyhow.
Garbage in, garbage out. Same goes for food. I like the idea of being able to me conscious of the types of meats I eat. I would prefer to eat "organic" meat and eco-friendly fish. But the cost of the "garbage" option was much better. I am going to spend the extra on the cleaner meats and eat less of. I am going to try to add more veggie protein to my diet.
Healthy in, healthy out.
Eat the food that God gave us, not the "food" that humans created in laboratories
