This is probably the only time you will ever hear me say, my kids argued at the dinner table and I couldn’t have been happier!
We have always had the hardest time getting our son to eat vegetables. He would not only refuse them, he would gag and sometimes gag to the point of throwing up. He has been this way his whole life, even baby food. I have tried cooking them all different ways and it has always been the same response.
However, today was different, the tables turned and I want to shout it out! He ate green beans and he ate them with a smile. I couldn’t give him enough, I had to tell him “no more green beans son.” Say what!? I think that is proof enough to say after a full week without any processed foods your tastes buds change! Seriously you guys, I never ever would have thought it possible. But it simply is. I am amazed and so very thankful.
One thing I have heard over and over from my family is the food tastes better. Organic food has much more flavor. It just does. I always knew it was “better” for us, but I never thought it would actually taste different. If you are like me, I would typically just go for what was cheapest.
Now let me shock you. Let’s take green beans for this example. Currently, at Costco, you can get a 5 lb. bag of frozen organic green beans for $6.49. Now, let’s take a cheap can of non organic green beans. Let’s assume in this case I do not have coupons. A 14.5 oz can of non organic green beans are anywhere from $.89 to $1.19. If you break it down the organic bag of green beans are roughly $.97 a “can”. Did you see that?! It is the SAME price as a can of non organic green beans. And let my three year old son tell you, the organic green beans “tastes waaaay better, they are super yummy”.
