Consider making your organic food with food ingredients that you purchase in bulk. Try making your granola which can be super pricey if you are purchasing at the grocery store, but with organic oats, maple syrup, and spices that you can make your recipes and save money. Organic vegetables can get pricey, so be sure and purchase them while they are in season.
Did you know that organic meat is also significantly higher in PROTEIN, IRON, VITAMIN E and OMEGA 3 FATTY ACIDS than non-organic meat? So if you are a meat eater who also spends money on supplements, than you might want to consider choosing the organic meat instead of all the supplements for the added protein to your diet.
You might also consider buying your produce from a weekly organic food delivery service. These food delivery services have different sized produce boxes for different budgets, and you are always ensured of getting what is in season at the time.
