If you haven’t heard about the organic food movement, chances are you’ve been living under a rock for the past 20 years. Organic foods have always been known to be healthy, but these days they are widely recommended by nutritionists for their health benefits, in a world filled with commercial foods covered in pesticides and other chemicals. It is widely known that many commercial fruits and vegetables may have chemical residue which can lead to health problems, and non-organic meats and eggs may lead to problems as well, due to added hormones. But the problem with organic food for many people is the price tag; it’s just not feasible to make organic their daily staple. That is, until you follow these tips for bringing organic food into your kitchen without spending a fortune!


Snatch up organic coupons

You can find so many coupons out there to help you save pennies on organic goodies. And pennies saved can add up quickly when you make weekly grocery trips! You can join the social media page for your favorite organic suppliers to check out any deals they have going on. And check out sites like Saving Naturally, Organic Deals and Mambo Sprouts for weekly coupons and organic deals.


Stay organized

The best way to minimize costs on organic food is to minimize the amount of money wasted on food you never use. If you’re able to put all of your purchases towards good use in organic meals, then it will truly be money well spent. So write out a weekly and monthly budget for your organic food expenditures, and stick with it. Set up meal plans so you can figure out how to spread certain ingredients across the entire week. For example, if your Monday meal calls for a bunch of spinach and kale, set up your weekly meal plan to include these ingredients as well so they don’t go to waste.


Use the freezer

Don’t forget that any organic foods you don’t use right away can be frozen for later use. And you can buy organic produce at the store instead of fresh to save money as well. It has the same amount of nutritional value and is already set up for you to store. Make sure you buy local fresh organic produce when it’s in season, and freeze any leftovers to use later.


Reduce meat and dairy consumption

Think it’s impossible to reduce your meat and dairy intake? Try going vegetarian or vegan at least 2 days per week. This type of diet is much more budget-friendly than a meat-filled diet, especially if you want to stick to organic. And if you’re going to eat meat, you definitely should. Commercial meat is often laden with hormones and chemicals that can have negative health impacts on your body. So if you’re going to eat meat, and want to save cash, make some choices about what type of meat you’re going to buy. And make veggies and whole grains the main part of your meal, with a small piece of meat on the side.
