Fruits and Veggies,

For the folks who live in a small town finding organic fruits and vegetables are either hard to find, non exsistant or very expensive. Don't stress over what to eat and what not to eat. Although organic is the healthiest way to go for some it is the most stressful way to go. The first thing I tell people is pick your battles, if you are limited in what you can find or afford go the next step, buy fresh, local fresh is better then canned. If you still are struggling go frozen, frozen is better then canned, and last if all else fails go canned but NOT processed. Always, Always, read the labels. Look for ingredents that you dont know, google them, know what it is that you are eating.
     But please dont stress over it. When you start to stress, you set yourself up to fail. Dont give up because your store only carries organic broccoli and carrots. Get what you can buy as fresh as you can. Remember just because the box says organic does not mean it is good for you. Organic packaged foods may still be processed. Read, Read, Read and then READ somemore.
