Of course you want to buy the healthiest foods for your family, but it can be very difficult to read all the different food labels on every single thing you buy.  For me personally grocery shopping needs to be done "Supermarket Sweep" style (you know that old game show?)...fast.  I'm a girl on a mission with kids in tow and standing around reading every food label I put in my cart is not an option. 

And even if I did read every food label that still would not tell me if something was GMO or not, it would still leave me guessing.  Here in the United States genetically modified foods are not labeled as such...but there is a little known trick I learned that guarantees the food I buy for my family is GMO free.

There is an amazing new company out there, the first of its kind that guarantees any product they carry is Non-GMO.  They regulate this very heavily and pledge to never carry GMO products.  This is great news as it takes away all the guess work and label analyzing so that I can feel 100% confident we are consuming only healthy non-GMO foods.  This is a really big deal as there is no other store or company that has this pledge and with all the dangerous health risks associated with GMO foods it's a company I am very glad exists.  I know that my kiddos are getting good clean food that their bodies desperately need to grow into healthy adults.

One other thing I really like about them is I can order right online and have it shipped (for free!) to my doorstep which as a busy working mom saves me a ton of time.  They are also so much cheaper than Wholefoods or the organic section at my grocery.  (Just to give you an idea the Gluten free oatmeal I buy at my local grocery is $5.99 a box, the same oatmeal at this store is $3.04!)  So I save money, time, and know without a shadow of a doubt I am feeding my family Non-GMO foods...can you say Super-Mom!!

Organic Grocery Stores
Buying organic food in Health Food Stores can be overwhelming if you are new to the whole organic movement.  I have a friend who recently drove almost an hour to Whole Foods for the first time and she found it to be really intimidating. 

Here are 3 tips to make your trip to the Organic Grocery Store a success!

TIP 1:  Price Shop
There is a big mark-up on Organic and Natural Food.  Prices can be marked up from to 250% for products on the shelves and up to 450% on produce!  I personally shop here, as I've found the prices to be quite a bit lower than all the Organic Grocery Stores in my area, and I get free shipping to my home...added bonus for a busy mom!

TIP 2:  Make a List
I try to figure out what I'm going to make for the week and make a list of everything we need.  I find if I don't have a list I sort of wander aimlessly and end up with a bunch of random things in my cart.  I think this was my friends issue last week, she went in not having anything in particular she wanted to buy so it's no wonder she was a bit intimidated.

TIP 3:  Try Something New
If you normally shop at conventional grocery stores you will probably find lots of things that you've never heard of before.  Don't be afraid to try new things!  Bring your children with you and let them pick out something, they will be more likely to try new foods if they picked them out.

Happy shopping!  Don't forget to check out this new Organic Grocery Store...you will thank me later :)
