Entries in The Unhealthy Truth (2)


Shopping Organic at Costco

I know it seems I'm talking about food a lot here, but after meeting Robyn O'Brien and starting her book The Unhealthy Truth , I've THINKING a lot more about food.

A Lot.

Today I hit Costco and in between getting distracted by the really cute rain boots and eating lunch by way of the samples, I found a number of good organic deals.

Kirkland USDA Organic Wheat Bread - 2 loaves for $5.69 ($2.84 ea)


Kirkland USDA Organic Tortilla Chips - 2.5 lb bag for $4.89 (less than $2 a pound)


Honest Kids USDA Organic juice / tea - $9.59 for 4 packs of 8 pouches ($.30 a pouch)


Del Monte USDA Organic Diced Tomatoes - $7.75 for 8 cans ($.96 each)

I did find chicken as well but I was going to hit another store on the way home and didn't want it to sit in the hot sun that long.

Also, Whole Foods is having a great sale on meat for grilling! If you spend $40 then you get $10 off at the register (ask the butcher for the coupon). This is going on all weekend so you can go in a few times and stock up! I bought 2 family packs of ground beef (no hormones, no antibiotics, etc) and 2 small stakes for $42 and got $10 off. I figured it out that I paid about $3.75 per pound!

Let's just hope Pepco can keep the power on all weekend...

FOOD: I will not be afraid

I had the pleasure of meeting with author Robyn O'Brien yesterday courtesy of Stoneyfield Farms and now I am re-thinking food. But I won't be afraid any longer.

OK, I'm still a little afraid.

I'm afraid to read Robyn's book, "The Unhealthy Truth ", because in it I know she will explain, in detail, what she found doing her OWN research,

as a mom,

trying to help her kids with allergies.

And here is just a smidgen of WHY you should not be afraid to read the book.

Food Allergies and Their Symptoms:

The GOOD news is that there are companies like Stonyfield who support local, organic farmers. There are organic restaurants like Restaurant Nora, host of this event, who also support our local, organic farms. And, according to Robin, even big brands like Walmart and Coca Cola offer chemical-free versions of their products in other countries! WHY? Because the mother's in Canada, the UK, New Zealand, and other countries said so!

See how powerful we moms can be?

So let's be brave together.

Let's read "The Unhealthy Truth " with eyes and ears wide open.

Let's make some small changes in our food consumption starting with organic milk, yogurt, and cheese.

If we feel it affecting our financial status we will make adjustments - Meatless Monday anyone?

And maybe we'll be motivated to get some laws changed.


Who's in???


Disclosure: I ate a delicious lunch, met an inspiring mother / author, sampled some deeelicious yogurt (really, try the caramel flavor!), and received a gift bag courtesy of Stonyfield. I was under no obligation to write or even talk about what I saw, heard, and learned but boy - how could I not?? All opinions are mine.
