Fact: Eating an all-organic diet can be more expensive.
MYTH: Eating an all-organic diet has to be more expensive.
What’s the number one secret to eating organic on a budget? Processed organic foods cost two, three, even four times as much as conventional processed food. But organic ingredients—like fruits, vegetables, dry beans, flour, sugar, etc.—are much closer in price to their conventional counterparts.
So, the quickest, easiest thing you can do to learn how to shop organic on a budget? Cut out the processed food.
But that’s just one little tip. My e-book, The Ultimate Guide to Eating Organic on a Budget, has more than 30 pages of tips like this one. And here’s your first money saving tip:
The e-book is free.
This e-book will tell you how to eat organic on a low budget—without resorting to eating nothing but organic beans and rice for the rest of your life! It’s got 22 real-world tips to help you learn how to buy organic food on a budget.
Plus, each tip is followed by an action step—so you know exactly how to get started saving real money.
The book also contains a bonus printable action plan listing each step in an easy-to-follow format, so you can follow along and check things off as you go. What can I say? I’m a little Type A! I love a good checklist.
So this is unrelated to the topic at hand, but I just wanted to offer a quick thanks for empowering me to make better shopping choices. I read the e-book where you discussed your hatred for Walmart shopping. I’ve been shopping there because a) they have relatively low prices, which is what’s been keeping me away from our local co-op, and b) they were close, which is what’s been keeping me away from our local Trader Joe’s. I saw your note about Sunflower’s circulars and thought, “Huh! There’s one about two blocks from here.” I hadn’t gone because a friend had told me it was expensive, so I lumped it in with the co-op in my head, but… you were right, they had such good sales on meat and produce that it balanced out and I was able to get about the same quantity of food. And the quality is so much higher! They had fruit sales on nectarines and cherries, which I ordinarily wouldn’t buy because of price, and I was able to get grass-fed beef on sale for 3.99 a pound, which is… less than I pay for the regular stuff at Walmart. I feel like I was able to get real food, and I don’t feel like my soul was destroyed. Now I don’t have to dread grocery shopping! (And I’m really excited about those cherries.) Thank you so much.
As an extra bonus, you’ll also receive seven ridiculously easy DIY recipes to help you get started eliminating processed food from your diet—and start saving you money.
Some of these recipes are so crazy easy they almost don’t even deserve to be called recipes! But once you try making your own, you’ll never want to go back to buying the store brand.
And I’m giving away all of this for free, because I want everyone to know how easy it is to eat organic on a low budget.
Some bloggers and reporters out there make this huge hoopla about how eating organic on a budget is so difficult.
It doesn’t have to be.
