    Exactly. There is not enough of a difference to make it worthwhile to me.

    This is worth noting, you younger women. All the hormones in the meat products are playing havoc with developing women.

    Now I'm giggling. That ^ sentence sure calls up a mind picture. . .

    It's only 100% organic if it's USDA approved. Any other form of certification cannot be trusted. I strive for organic in the winter months, but in the summer I choose locally grown produce over even USDA organic from the stores, because any fresh food brought over the border is radiated.

    Yes, I agree 100%.

    Ah, thanks. Well then, I'm afraid it's not easy to find organic food where I live. I've never been to concerned about such things. I'm not too concerned with my health either. Which doesn't mean I only eat crap.

    I never gave it a lot of thought until I wanted to buy beef from a local organic farm. The taste is ridiculously better. Buying beef in bulk like that is also much cheaper. I get beef, pork and chicken as well as eggs and milk and sometimes butter when they have it. I grow a good sized garden so those chemicals are controlled and have access to tons of locally grown produce. I don't go out of my way to get organic foods in everything I buy but I keep the processed stuff levels down. I also make bread a few times a week. I started that because I do a lower carb thing but it's easy with a bread machine and the variety is endless.
    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.
