So in part one I talked about Genetically Modified foods and milk. This has been such an eye opener and I pray you have taken time to check items in your home. Another area that I noticed also that has been Genetically Modified was our grains. More than 50 % of the U.S. grain is Genetically Modified.
As I looked up the ingredients from the sauces, creams and yogurt, I found they contained wheat, soy and corn. My husband and I had a family meeting this past Tuesday evening concerning all that I had found. We both came to the decision that we needed to make some changes, starting with learning how to make some of these items, without the extras.
I do realize that eating 100% organic is not available everywhere and can be really expensive. But there are still changes we can make like getting foods from local farmers, fresh markets and growing some of your own foods. Many grocery stores have organic and natural isles. But just remember to check your ingredients and know who you're buying from. Here is a guide I found that you can use when shopping.
Laura over at Heavenly Homemakers also had put together a series that I had put off reading until I had a moment. Check out Organic Food part one, part two, part three and part four.
I have come to a decision to stop posting match-ups, knowing that some of the contents are not real and were created in a lab (not how God intended). I have enjoyed posting the match-ups and the savings, but not at the cost of my health and what I know now. If you would still like match-ups you can use these sites:
Kroger- I Heart Kroger (Atlanta)
Pubix- The Krazy Coupon Lady or SouthernsSavers
CVS/Rite Aid/ Walgreens- Hip2Save or ForTheMommas
Martins- Anns Crazy World (Richmond) or Almost Extreme Coupon (West Virginia)
So I am looking forward to this challenge and learning how to make things from scratch. Thank you all for reading with me and hanging in on this journey.
Let me know if I missed a deal. Thanks for visiting my blog.
