hey there! i was just wondering, obvsiouly organic is much much better but if i cannot get organic meat and organic cheese (fruits and veggies i clean off with a special soap), is it better not to eat them at all even if they are positives from the blood type diet? in other words, are they still super foods if not organic? thanks!

All of us here on the BTD site buy what we can, some of us get more organic, some not so much. It depends more on your budget, generally speaking. Don't make yourself crazy over that. Just enjoy eating better and getting healthier!

Well that is darn good to know because we LOVE oven roasted asparagus and cannot get it organic here.  Even non-organic costs alot!  But it's worth it.  I have to cut back on some organic stuff because of the price but we do the best we can.

We do our best, but not everything we buy is organic.  First off, if you go to the stores that are ALL organic, they are crazy high on some things.  So, we opt to go to stores that carry as much as organic as possible and alot of times the bigger stores are more reasonable on their organic prices.  At least the one we go to.  That's not always the case, but we have found a Large store that carries lots of organic and has very decent prices on everything.  We're saving probably $ 40 a week or so by not going to the HFS.  We even found a big store that carries Ostrich.  Which we eat every week.  Mmmmmmmm!

If you are an Explorer it is especially important to eat organic since they have innate liver detoxficiation difficulties & non-organic has pesticides, etc. sprayed on them.


Google for the foods recommended to eat organic (some foods are not at such a high risk than others).


It is so pleasant to explore nature & oneself at the same time, doing violence neither to her nor to one's own spirit, but bringing both into balance in gentle, mutual interaction.

hi zola! i am not an explorer, i am a teacher, but my body metabolizes drugs very very slowly and so i avoid all drugs! i also have a toxic buildup so i guess eating organic is important for me!

for fresh fruits and vegetables, i bought this special natural cleaner and spend 1 minute cleaning them.

it is hard for me financially to afford organic cheese and turkey. perhaps i should just avoid them? perhaps non organic would not be beneficial for me if i toxicity issues!

Turkey is high on my list of foods to avoid if its non-organic, even though it's one of my superfoods. Poultry is highest of all meats in added hormone content. Organic turkey is expensive, but, imo, money well spent. Mostly I go without turkey because the only source I can find locally is non-organic, but occasionally I can find it and will splurge to stock up on it.

Hey, Kim!  Yes, non-organic dairy, including cheese, will have hormones.  I would say with you trying to detox it might be best for you to try to eat as much organic as you reasonably can.  Shop at the DeKalb Farmer's Market!  You can even ride with me if you like.  I was there today and spent nearly $200 on veggies, fruits, meat and cheese.  It'll last us about a week and a half.  That's buying almost 100% organic.

You know Ribbit.. I'm not sure of that.  There are hormone free eggs that are not organic and the butter I recently purchased was non organic but hormone free.

Wisconsin doesn't have a Dekalb.  Darn.  Illinois does though.  I wonder if they have the same farmers market!!!!

please don t let that stop you from eating!

I find practically nothing organic down here, and am alive and kicking!!
simply avoid your known toxins or avoids and add all other foods in your list.

Yeah, we have DeKalb & we pronounce all the letters.
In Georgia, it is pronounced DeKab!
I can sometimes pick up an Atlanta radio station WSB 750.
In East Central Illinois where we occasionally go, I can pick up that station easier at night than many big Chicago stations & Atlanta is over twice the distance! I think there's a hilly area that blocks Chicago. Isn't that weird?
So, if we visit Ribbit, we can go to the DeKab Market!
Later we can go from Des Plaines to Des Moines. Yep, those are each pronounced differently!
BTW, ABNW, how much per # does the ostrich cost? It is over $20/#(the filet is 6 oz. for 7.99)!! I wish I could afford more. I end up eating lots of beef which is only neutral. I think that's why I don't see huge improvements. I decided to go veggie for this week & had the 'dot' of pinto beans just for a break. I feel a little better.  Too bad so few beans are superfoods for me.
Cheerio!

OK, you're probably right.  Farms that haven't been certified organic (it's an expensive process full of red tape) can still be hormone-free.

Kim, I'll go again towards the end of next week.  I like to go on Mondays but during the garden season I have to be working Mon and Tues. for the farmer's market Wed (not the "DeKab" one) where I sell what I can.

Unfortunately most of the organic produce I find here is neutral. I many times wonder what is best and 90% of the time I end up buying the beneficial/superfood even though it is not organic. At least it is better for my pocket

I try to buy organic/harmone free as often as possible but after I retire & go on a fixed income...that might change...depends on how much I can afford then.

I buy about 90% of the products organic. I do not want any of the pesticide toxins in my body. I rather save money with something else.
