Don't Be Fooled!
Is one of your goals for 2010 to eat a healthy diet? Maybe you want to eat more organic food this year. My biggest mistake when we first switched to an organic lifestyle was to buy all our normal junk food but in organic form! It added a dramatic amount to our grocery bill. I'm now in the process of only letting each child pick out one snack per month. I use it as a reward for going on our monthly shopping trip to four different stores.
Instead of buying organic granola bars, you can try making your own. They taste much better!! We make all of our cookies, brownies, and cakes. Our main snack is usually organic popcorn. Do not buy microwave popcorn! You can make your own by adding 1/3 cup popcorn to a paper bag and microwaving for about 2 minutes. We melt our butter while it's popping.
