Make-Ahead Meals

This past weekend, our Savvy Organic Shopper decided to make up a batch of vegetarian chili to take for lunch this week.

Affordable organic family meals

On a recent trip to Whole Foods Market in Columbus Circle in Washington, D.C., our Savvy Organic Shopper came across a number of competitively priced organic ingredients that can be used to make delicious, and affordable, family meals. Let’s start with pasta. Organic fusilli pasta was priced $1.29 per pound, while conventional was $.99 per pound.  Now let’s look at chicken, another great staple to have on hand for family meals. Natural chicken breasts were priced at $4.99, while organic were $6.99. How about cherry tomatoes?

Farmers Markets

The Savvy Organic Shopper stopped by the Dupont Circle Farmers Market in Washington, D.C.  and found competitive prices on local, organic foods. Vine-ripe organic tomatoes were being sold for $3.00 per pound, while conventional tomatoes were $4.50 per pound. Organic eggplant was $2.60 per pound, whereas conventional eggplant was $3.60 per pound. At $2.00 per pound, organic cucumbers were also a dollar cheaper per pound than their conventional counterparts.
