Kraft Shredded Cheese for $0.88 a Bag
I've told you before and I'll tell you again- I LOVE cheese! I don't think I go a day without eating some type of cheese. And usually I have 6-8 different types in my fridge at a time. Cheese is pretty pricey so anytime I can get a good deal on it, I stock up. This week there's a great deal going on at Lowe's Food stores. So here's the steal: All bags of shredded Kraft Cheese are on sal...

It's AMAZING! My In-Laws had as...
Happy 5th Birthday, Emma!!!
My baby is turning 5 today. She is SOOO excited about this age, and the fact that the dentist told her 2 days ago that her two bottom teeth were loose. I keep telling her she's going to look like a jack-o-lantern but she doesn't seem to mind:) I received the Picaboo book in the mail yesterday and it's all wrapped up and ready for Emma to open up. It came out REALLY nice. Can't believe I...

Vita Mix Blender – The Kitchen Appliance No Home Should Be Without
I've got to be honest with you. I hate infomercials. I also don't care much for sales Kiosks where fast-talking snake oil salesmen wearing headset microphones attempt to mesmerize you with their clever words and trivial knowledge. In fact, the Vita Mix blender Kiosk at our local Costco had been up and running for several months before we finally approached it during one of our latest visits. Prior...

Free Coupons!!

Posted By: Elena on February 27, 2010 in All Natural, Coupons, Organic - Comments: No Comments »

Remember last week when I told you about a bunch of organic and natural companies that would send you FREE coupons if you requested them? Well I emailed 8 of them and 3 have already sent me coupons!

Yesterday, I received (3) $1.00 coupons from Ians. Then today, I received (2) $0.35 coupons from Radlo Foods and 8 coupons from Earthbound Farm.

What surprised me the most was that 2 out of the 8 coupons that Earthbound Farm sent were for FREE items up to $5.99 value!!! Right there it’s like getting $12 for FREE! I LOVE Earthbound Farm products, so I am very excited about these coupons. I know their organic strawberries sell for $5.99 at Harris Teeter and as strawberries are part of the “dirty dozen” list, it’s important to buy those organically grown.

The other six coupons included were (2) $0.55, (1) $0.75 and (3) $1.00. All of these coupons begin with a “5” in the upc code, so they will double if your store doubles coupons.

Earthbound Farm also included a Pocket Guide to Going Organic which was adapted from the EWG’s Dirty Dozen list, so this is a great handy guide to carry around when you are grocery shopping.

Special thanks to Earthbound Farm, Radlo Farms, and Ian’s Natural Foods for these wonderful coupons!

Frozen Organic Baby Food

Posted By: Elena on in Baby Food, Frozen, Organic - Comments: No Comments »

When it comes to baby food, you have a lot of choices. But only a handful of baby food companies have frozen organic varieties.

More than ever, parents are looking for the convenience of a quick meal yet wanting the best quality and nutritious foods for their babies. Now, you can have the best of both worlds by purchasing frozen organic baby food. “Organic frozen baby food” that has been “blast frozen” lasts longer, preserves the nutrients and colors of the ingredients better than jarred food and has all the good things that come with “organic“.

Here is a list of the companies that I found to have frozen organic baby food.

Bella Baby– 12 different flavors of frozen purees available.

Bobo Baby– This Canadian based company offers 12 different flavors of frozen purees.

Happy Baby– 8 different packages of 15 varieties, including meat, grains, fruit and vegetables in three stages.

Jack’s Harvest– 10 flavors in two stages- 7 “So smooth” and 3 “A Little Lumpy” varieties
Through March 31, 2010, you can save $1 on Jack’s Harvest frozen organic baby foods at Whole Foods. $1 Coupon.

Mom Made Foods– 4 varieties All 100% USDA Certified Organic.

Tasty Baby– 10 different flavors of frozen purees available in three stages.

Yummy Spoonfuls– 25 flavors in three stages- 10 “Creamy Yummy”, 11 “Mushy Yummy” and 4 “Chunky Yummy” varieties 100% USDA Certified Organic.

Note: Companies listed in alphabetical order. The companies that description includes “100% USDA Certified Organic” made this clear on their websites. This does not mean some of the others aren’t as well…I just didn’t see it in their FAQ or website.

Do you know a company that sells “frozen organic baby food” not listed here? Feel free to leave a comment or send me an email and I will be happy to add them to the above list.

Improve your Health by Going Organic

Posted By: Elena on February 22, 2010 in Organic - Comments: 1 Comment »

Sports Writer Max from The Times Herald thinks going organic will improve your health. He gives 5 good reasons why you should considering buying organic foods.

Max says, “On average, I figure I spent an additional $100 per month on better quality and organic foods. To me, this is a very reasonable added expense when you consider the benefit to my health over a lifetime. Along with regular exercise, this decision can significantly reduce my risk of disease and slow the aging process”.

“I realize that it’s impossible to always eat healthy and organic, but the idea is to reduce the toxicity in our bodies by cutting harmful chemicals wherever and whenever possible. Here are just a few reasons why you might consider consuming organic foods and products”.

1. Organic products meet stringent standards.

Organic certification is the public’s assurance that products have been grown and handled according to strict procedures without persistent and often harsh toxic chemical inputs. When a product has been Certified Organic by QAI (Quality Assurance International), you can rest assured that the product, its ingredients and the manufacturer have gone through a thorough investigation.

2. Organic production greatly reduces health risks.

Many EPA-approved pesticides were registered long before extensive research linked these chemicals to cancer and other diseases. Now, the EPA considers 60% of all herbicides (weed killers), 90% of all fungicides (mold killers), and 30% of all insecticides (insect killers) as potentially cancer causing. Organic farming keeps harmful chemicals and pesticides out of the food we eat and beverages we drink. It also prohibits the use of antibiotics in animal feed, which are routinely used in conventional farming and are known to create dangerous antibiotic-resistant pathogens.

3. Organic farms respect our precious water sources.

The elimination of polluting chemicals and nitrogen leaching, done in combination with soil building, protects and conserves water resources. Organic farming reduces toxic farming runoff and pollutants that contaminate our water, soil and air.

4. Organic farmers build better, healthier soil.

Soil is the foundation of the food chain and the primary focus of organic farming. We’re facing the worst topsoil erosion in history due to our current agricultural practice of chemical intensive, mono-crop farming.

5. Organic food tastes better.

It’s common sense – well-balanced soils grow strong healthy plants that taste great. Try an organic orange, apple, or vine-ripened tomato for a sweet and juicy treat.

Organic On A Budget

Posted By: Elena on in Budget, Organic - Comments: No Comments »

While going green can be good for your health it is not always easy on the wallet. Since the recession hit, more than half of consumers have changed which organics they buy, if any. Kelli Grant, Senior Consumer Reporter for SmartMoney.com, gives us five tips on how to go green and save money.

  • First, prioritize your organics. Pick and choose to save cash. Some produce requires less pesticides to grow, therefore there is little or no residue after washing. The Environmental Working Group lists asparagus, avocados, broccoli, onions and kiwi as less affected. Peels on tropical fruits such as bananas further reduce your exposure.
  • Second, join a co-op. For an annual fee you’ll get access to low-priced produce and other products from area farmers. Many of the options for organic and savings run between 15 and 30 percent. But, do keep in mind some co-ops require you to work there as well, so it may not be cost-effective for everyone.
  • The third tip may sound very familiar – clip coupons. Organics don’t often pop up in the Sunday circular, but keep your eyes open for manufactures’ coupons good on “any” of a particular line. That includes organics. Also check manufacturers’ websites for printout coupons for your favorite organic brands.
  • Fourth, buy in-season. Produce is cheap to begin with and organic prices are more competitive. Compare prices at farmer’s markets and local supermarkets.
  • Last, be sure to consider generics. Many supermarkets are adding organic lines to their private labels. It is a move that enables consumers to buy organic at significant discounts over big-name brands. Meijer has Meijer Organics, Whole Foods has 360 Organics and Publix has GreenWise Market.

Conventional vs. Organic Farming

Posted By: Elena on in Conventional, Organic - Comments: No Comments »


Are you wondering whether you should be buying conventional or organic foods? Consider these farming differences to help you with your decision.

Thanks to the Mayo Clinic for this list.

Conventional farmers

Organic farmers

Apply chemical fertilizers to promote plant growth.

Spray insecticides to reduce pests and disease.

Use chemical herbicides to manage weeds.

Give animals antibiotics, growth hormones and medications to prevent disease and spur growth.

Apply natural fertilizers, such as manure or compost, to feed soil and plants.

Use beneficial insects and birds, mating disruption or traps to reduce pests and disease.

Rotate crops, till, hand weed or mulch to manage weeds.

Give animals organic feed and allow them access to the outdoors. Use preventive measures — such as rotational grazing, a balanced diet and clean housing — to help minimize disease.
