After meeting Robyn O’Brien, author of The Unhealthy Truth recently, I’ve been inspired to make a change in my own family’s relationship with food. I hope you don’t mind me sharing my experiences on our family’s food journey.
Our baby step: Making the switch to organic milk
We have to take baby steps to ease the switch to organic into our budget and our lifestyle. Our first decision is to switch from regular milk to organic. Since the kids consume so much of it every day, we thought that was the best place to start. With that one change, we’ll make a big impact.
So far we haven’t found a ton of options for saving $$ on organic milk, although I continue to scour Coupons.com. I’ve been lucky to find coupons for organic yogurt and even for regular milk there, but so far no organic milk that I’m aware of.
We have had a few grocery store promotions come up recently, though, that offered a deal on cereal (buy so many boxes of a particular brand, get a coupon for FREE milk, any brand and any variety, up to a certain value.) I think for now that’s our best bet on finding savings on organic milk.
Are you looking to make a switch in what your family eats? If so, where are you starting?
There’s certainly a lot to process about the idea of processed foods. I hope you don’t mind me sharing my thoughts as I start our family’s journey to a healthier life. We’re starting small — we already have a picky preschooler, so we’ll be taking baby steps. I’d love it if you joined in with your thoughts and experiences as well.
