I don’t know about the rest of T-Nation, but for me, when I can afford it, organic food is the way to go.
Ain’t nothing better than chompin down on a big fat organic fuji apple. I mean compare that to what they sell at the supermarket…like wtf happened to Red Delicious apples in the last decade??? do they taste like cardboard to any one else??? they used to be good when I was a kid, but it seems all that genetic modification f’d em up over the years.
As result of this divergence of quality between GMO(gen modified) and organic foods, the organic market surged! But now big chains have taken note and want some profit(like Safeway with their very own “O Organics” brand) They manage to carry great quality products now for a bit cheaper than at the local organic stores (I’ve tried many of the products)
I really don’t care about being loyal to the old organic sellers, and I’m stoked that they are mass producing health in America finally, instead of mass producing poison!!
For instance, now they’ve got a cheap peanut butter w/out transfat, bread with less than 30 ingredients, dairy and chicken without hormones pumped in, and frozen berries(on the “Dirty Dozen” list) which aren’t coated in pesticides before freezing (mmmm shakes w/out pesticide flavor)
