5 WAYS TO REDUCE YOUR ORGANIC FOOD BILL
It’s not hard to find good reasons to eat foods produced organically and/or biodynamically – they are free from chemicals, pesticides and herbicides, the growing methods are generally beneficial for the environment and they just seem to taste better and most of us feel that on a gut level, they are just better for us.
But ………..we also know they are generally more expensive - although it should be said that the price of
non-organically produced foods do not take into account the costs to our health and the environment
that we may end up paying for by other means (eg poorer health outcomes, degraded environments etc).
So with this in mind, below are 5 ways to eat organic without blowing the budget.
1. Reduce waste. The average household wastes between around 30% of their food, through mismanaging the pantry, over buying, and poor storage. Buying less food more often not only keeps things fresh and tasty, it reduces spoilage and saves you money.
2. Buy in bulk. Buying some produce in bulk can help you save money in the long run. Bulk buy products are often cheaper. Stick to pastas, pulses, dried foods and vegetables that have a long life like potatoes and onions. We also offer 10% off most of our bulk items when you bring you own containers – less plastic waste too!
3. Buy seasonal. Produce is cheaper when it is in season and more abundant.
4. Cook from scratch. Convenience foods are more expensive than cooking raw ingredients from scratch as long as you look after your ingredients and use them sparingly.
