    I try not to, because I hate hippies, and they smile at me if I buy something "organic."

    No, not really, Falcarius feels bad about eating those plastic genetically modified inorganic Jurassic Park Pack foods from the toy store food store, as they are rather horrid tasting. Apparently, all the humans love them. Joking aside, if I had the money I would more often.

    Gives Jack her bestest hippy smile.

    And then just one more for good measure.

    Then a couple more for gluttony's sake.

    Sure. I'm interested in being as healthy as I can be, always have been. I like feeling good and I don't if I eat junk. I don't like eating heavily processed food either. I want to decide what I put into my body, not just whatever happens to be at the corner store. It's easy enough for me to buy alternatives to that.

    I don't go out of my way to eat or buy organic but I won't say no if it's offered to me.

    I am more concerned with trying to eat local which is hard during the winter and the farmer's markets are closed. I don't know how to can my own stuff or else I suppose I could do that. Once I buy a house, I'd like to have a nice little garden so I can have fresh produce.

    "Organic" food is often times just a selling point and has its own set of baggage and problems.

    I buy the organic/hormone free meat products and dairy. Some of the fresh veggies I buy are organic, others not. Fruits I typically do not go organic, and I don't bother with breads/pastas/other stuff either. It's too expensive to go 100% organic, and I don't know that it's that necessary.

    And in general I avoid buying a whole lot of processed/prepackaged food. Just my personal taste these days - wanting to go more natural and eat healthier.

    No. I feel like I'm being conned if I pay a premium for organic foods. I feel it's analogous to buying carbon credits - It makes you feel good for doing it more than it provides any tangible benefit.

    I like to, when I can. But I would never be rigid about it. When there comes a point where food is ruling my life, it's gone too far.
