Hi everybody! Today I made my first organic food purchase. Golden del. apples, carrots, celery, and some Tropicana pomegranate blueberry juice. The apples were very good, I must say, as was the juice. Have yet to try the other veggies. One thing I've definitely noticed: you really have to watch the dates! Not enough people buying the food so it sits on the shelf and expires. In fact, the only health food store I've been to had several expired items. The above items were bought at Kroger. I guess the other major stores carry organic foods too? I also noticed that not all organic foods were centrally located. Some were, but finding other things was like going on a treasure hunt. What's your experience shopping for organics? And what about organic bread? Am I better off buying a bread making machine and doing it myself? Don't have time for doing it from scratch...unless it's a machine. LOL

Congratulations on buying your first organic foods! It really depends on where you live what the availability of organic foods will be. We do know that it is becoming more and more in demand, but it hasn't quite become mainstream yet.
Here in the Phoenix area, we have good availability at stores like Whole Foods Market, and a great home delivery service called Organically Grown For You ( http://www.organicallygrown4you.com). Some of the commercial grocery stores like Safeway and Basha's also have sections for organic foods. You can also order organic food products and healthy food products from on-line vendors as well. Check out http://www.shopnatural.com. If you can find it, the best organic bread would be the Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain bread made by Food 4 Life or Alvarado Street Bakery's Sprouted grain breads. They are usually sold in a natural food market in the frozen or refrigerated section. You can make your own bread as well. Check out the website for Bob's Red Mill ( http://www.bobsredmill.com). It has some great recipes and loads of certified organic whole grains to choose from. Welcome to the message board! __________________ Dee McCaffrey
