I Can’t Afford Organic Foods

Aug. 14, 2015 

Dear Cathy:

I am a single mother with a limited budget.  I can’t afford organic foods but I do want the best for my kids.  Are there anymore suggestions on how I can feed my kids good nutrient-dense organic foods?  Seeking Good Food, Oklahoma

Dear Seeking Good Food:

Basically, you need to ask yourself if you or your family members love visiting doctors.  As long as you are not eating organic foods (foods without pesticides), you are setting your family up to have more doctor’s visits in their lives; live a sicker life; and have a short life-span.  Remember most overweight kids will become overweight adults. 

So you have two choices – “organic foods” or “doctor’s visits.”   The toxins from Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) (or processed foods) will result in organ failure, pain or some type of other health issue down the line.

Sure finding organic foods is a chore, however, it’s not impossible to find these foods and many times the foods are not that much more expensive ($1 or $2 more) than conventional foods. 

Every city has a holistic or natural community that can help you start growing your own food again so seek out these communities today – or you can join a local organic Food Co-op. 

Start conducting research to see what you can eat.  Basically, you want to find foods that states it is grown “100% Certified Organic,” which means the foods were grown 100% certified organic WITHOUT pesticides. 

If this doesn’t work look for foods that states it is “Organic,” but remember chances are it’s only 95% Organic and 5% GMOs.  If the food labels states the foods “Contains Organic Ingredients” -- then the foods are only 75% Organic and 25% GMOs. 

Also look for foods with the label “Non-GMO” on it.  There is a list of foods in the “Non-GMO Shopping Guide” at

Finding good foods will be hard but in the long run, it will keep down doctor’s visits and help you live an energetic life full of vitality -- so overall it’s well worth it.
