A great place to start for the organic newbie is understanding USDA organic labeling and learning what the word organic does and doesn’t mean.
When you’re shopping in the store you will come across a lot of options for healthy, natural and organic foods. Especially these days where the organic market is growing in leaps and bounds. Big money companies are fighting for your dollar and as a result muddying the word “organic” with their marketing gimmicks. Being a savvy shopper will help you make educated purchases and be self-assured that you are buying the best for you and your family.
What to look for in organic – if you have access to a local farmer’s market you’re one step ahead of the game.
