Organic On A Budget

Organics are not always cheap but they are important. If you’re taking the time to eat better, buying organic produce is the first place to start. If they spray the plants with pesticides it’s in the air, soil and water which means it’s in the plant and in you. No scrubbing will get that stuff out.

Sticking to the dirty dozen is a great place to start. Click here for current list.

I do almost all my shopping at two stores on Roncesvalles, Qi Naturals carry all my oils, powders, nuts, seeds and anything else I need. I haven’t found better prices then at Qi and their service is great. I then walk North about four store fronts to Maple Produce. They’re a little grocer with zero frills and THE best prices. They don’t always have local in the summer but in the winter they’ve got organics covered.

Personally I feel much better about spending my dollar at family owned, locally run business like these especially when I’m getting my money’s worth.

Yes Miss Mellors this one is for you… sorry it’s on the other end of the city!
