My 1 Tip for Going Organic

 

After a year or so now of working to get our family on an all organic / grass fed diet, I’ve learned a lot. I’ve learned some of its hard, and some of this change is REALLY REALLY easy..  I haven’t gotten it all figured out, but I have discovered things that work for us, and here is my one tip…


 

FIND AN ORGANIC FROZEN VEGETABLE YOUR FAMILY LOVES, AND KEEP A LOT OF IT. 

 


 

For us, its mixed vegetables of corn, carrots, and peas.  Especially having little kids, its pretty perfect.  I get a couple small bags each time I’m at Fresh Market, and just pull them out as needed.

So when your at the normal grocery and there isn’t anything pretty thats organic, you have a back up plan. OR a great plan for lunches.. because lets face it, I cant be the only person who struggles with healthy weekday lunches for myself and the kids.

** Do a few rinses of your frozen vegetable in hot water before you cook it. This is supposed to be quick, so don’t waste your time starting with a frozen vegetable in ice water. If you take 30 seconds to rinse them a few times in warm water, you’re starting with a thawed veggie in warm water.

My girls love them, and the baby has tons of fun picking them up, and moving them around, and i’m sure she successfully eats a few (no matter how many I pick up off the floor)
