Eat This Not That: Food Staples

I thought it would be fun to do a post on what health and organic foods that need to be organic, and ones that you can get away buying conventional. I know it’s not easy for everyone to always buy organic food, because of the higher price, so I thought it would be fair to let those people know that there is still hope in being healthy on a budget.I’m going to list different food categories that are categorized by things that should be organic, and doesn’t have to be. I’m also going to list things that should be organic like yogurt, but still list a healthier conventional item for those who can’t eat organically.
Yogurt-
I believe yogurt should be raw or organic, because of the hormones, antibiotics, pesticides and additives. But, of course I will list a healthier conventional version.

Organic:

Stony Field Plain Organic Yogurt.

Conventional:

Chobani Honey Yogurt: Made just with honey, and no sugar. 

Milk-

Milk is another thing that should be raw or organic. Pretty much any animal products should be.

Organic:

I haven’t studied all the organic milk ingredients, but I’m pretty sure they are all relatively the same.

Conventional:

Goats milk would be a better option, since goats are never given any antibiotics or hormones. 

Butter:


Butter should be raw or organic, but both are pricey. Just stick to old fashion butter and stay away from margarines and dairy-free butters.

Bread:


Since today’s processing of wheat is very unhealthy, I recommend buying gluten-free bread.

Gluten-free:

Food For Life Millet bread

Wheat:

Food For Life Ezekiel bread (any variety) 


I hope this was helpful to you, so you can decide which products need to be organic, and choosing a healthier conventional alternative.
