Is anyone on an organic diet? My wife and I started to covert over a few weeks ago. I haven't gotten my new credit card bill so I can't tell how much more we are spending at the grocery store. But I feel much better and eat a lot less now.

Any chance you'll be less disgruntled now?

we'll buy some organic stuff, but i wont grossly overpay for it
Milk (well, we buy that Horizon Organic...so i guess that's corporate organic) - lasts a lot longer, tastes better ;-D
Eggs - Cage Free/Free Range, although lately there is a guy i work with who raises chickens and brings in eggs ;-D
Vegetables - sorry...i'm not paying an extra $1.00 for a green pepper or apple. i'll take my chances :-t
Meat - i went in on a whole cow once, but typically again i'll just take my chances and not grossly overpay for organic meat i find at the store :-t

however, my wife wants to make home-made baby food for our 5 month old when he is ready for solids and said he is only eating orgainc, so i may ultimately lose the veggie battle

also, i've been trying to avoid processed foods more and more, but i'm not a dirty hippie or anything like that, so we'll still eat that kind of stuff from time to time

We go to Costco to buy eggs, milk, yogurt, spinach, tortilla chips (only like $4 for a giant bag) etc. Everything so much cheaper there.

We are trying to stick with veggies/fruits that are in season so they taste better and are relatively cheaper.

I've almost cut processed food out of my diet. I'll have some things once in awhile (i.e. fried chicken) but I've noticed that almost everything that is processed has a ton of sugar or salt in it. After sticking to nonprocessed for a while you really notice it.

A friend of mine is on an organic diet and says he has more energy.

I definitely prefer the organic milk (as was mentioned by Mr. Lambskin)...tastier and lasts longer. I'll use fresh organic produce when it's given to me by a friend from his/her personal garden, but I don't usually pay for it.

That's all I know about that...

Why does a gallon of organic last longer?

Q&A: Does organic milk last longer?
Why does the organic milk I buy last so much longer than regular milk? —J.H., Holden, Mass.

Organic milk often undergoes "ultrapasteurization," in which the milk is heated to a very hot 280° F (137.8° C) for 2 seconds, rather than the 161° F (71.7° C) for 15 seconds used in conventional pasteurization. By killing more bacteria, the extra heat extends the milk's expiration date. It's not clear whether organic-milk producers ultrapasteurize as an additional safeguard against bacteria, since organic cows consume no antibiotics, or simply to extend shelf life. Properly refrigerated, ultrapasteurized milk has a shelf life of 40 to 60 days unopened, compared with 15 to 17 days for milk pasteurized the regular way. But you should consume all milk within 7 to 10 days after opening.
