How to switch to organic.

Don't feel that you must buy organic everything. Even switching to a few organic regulars makes a difference.

  • Make the change to organic versions of everyday mainstays. Try organic milk, cheese, pasta, chicken, bananas.
  • Take it slowly. Pick up one or two organic items every time you shop. Try different brands, and once a week, buy something new to try: organic tofu, stuffed vine leaves, soup. You'll soon find your favorites.
  • There's an organic version of almost every food you can think of, from coffee to baked beans, pizzas to eggs. Drinks, pork chops, peanut butter, jam – all supermarkets stock organic goods, although you'll do better buying in local shops or farmers' markets if you can.
  • Shop around. Organic foods are sometimes more expensive than non-organic, but the more people buy them, the more prices will come down. We pay through taxes for the hidden costs of cleaning up water polluted with agro-chemicals that underpin the production of cheap mass-produced foods.
  • Have some fun and visit your local Farmers Market.
  • Contact your local CSA and enter into a trial membership. You'll be glad you did.

Once you've started making the change, you'll soon appreciate the many advantages of eating organic foods, and you won't want to switch back.
