10 Ways to Go Organic, Without Raising Your Budget

By Katrina Robinson

We all want to lead healthier lives, and adding organic products is one surefire way to do so. Buying organic allows us to exclude items grown using non-organic insecticides and pesticides, and often. But even as more and more of our families’ staples are available in with an organic stamp, this healthy fare can come at a high price.

You can eat organically without increasing your grocery budget, though. Start with these tips:
  1. Shop at your local farmers’ market. Farmers’ markets provide fresh, nutritious foods and many feature prices equal to the supermarket.
  2. Start coupon clipping! Many organic products can be purchased at sale prices, and you can make the cost even lower with the help from coupons. Didn’t think you could get coupons for organics? Not so.
  3. Think quality, not quantity. By cutting back on a few of the more expensive foods your family usually buys, you can bank some savings to apply toward buying organic foods.
  4. Buy flour made from spelt. It costs less than organic white flour and is great for you.
  5. Eat one meal a week that is 100 percent made locally. These foods are organic and, again, aren’t terribly expensive when purchased at your local farmer’s market. Even when you’re buying from the grocer, though, you may find that locally sourced veggies have a lower price point.
  6. Turn vegetarian 2-3 days each week. With the money you’re saving on beef, pork and chicken, you can buy fresh and organic veggies and fruits.
  7. Expand your seed and nut palette. There’s a wide variety of raw delicious seeds and nuts that will increase your energy levels by up to 400 percent. Try sunflower seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, almonds, walnuts, and pecans.
  8. Branch out with bread. Instead of eating white bread, switch it up and try breads made with whole grains.
  9. Keep some color in your pasta! Take your pasta down the whole-grain path as well. When you ditch the refined grains the cost difference is nil, and the results will have you feeling more energetic.
  10. Go au natural. Raw sugar is about the same price as refined sugar, and coupons can sometimes be found here on redplum.com.
With these ten tips, you can start living an organic lifestyle a little bit at a time—without breaking the bank!
