Organic eaters? I have just watched a rerun of an Oprah episode on organic eating with Michael Pollan. He has shared a lot of facts, trivia, and insights on organic eating with his book "Food Rules". I'm curious who here have started living organic. Organic lifestyle here in our country isn't that popular yet. But having watched that episode got me thinking of its benefits. I also liked the discussion Oprah and Alicia Silverstone had about her own organic lifestyle with her "a kind diet" book. It's amazing to know that some in the united states are realizing the advantages of organic eating. It is pricey but generally is helpful. If I were financially capable, I would really love to start in going organic. How about you?

I would love to go organic again because when I was ill, my mother opted to go in that direction to get my body working well again. Anyway, going organic lessens the probability of getting cancer and it's been proven to delay the onset of certain diseases. The down point however is that organic stuff is just so freakin' expensive but to those who need help, consult this magazine called Kiwi, it's a great help for those who would love to start.

Hi myswirlyagelesmind. That is correct. It lessens the occurrences of illnesses and keeps you healthier, keeps your body stronger and helps your body fight diseases. Yes, the problem with the organic lifestyle though is it a bit expensive. Hopefully, government will realize the importance of organic living would do something about it. Thank you for sharing!

I would love more than anything to support local organic food markets, such as the local farmer's markets. I would love to just learn to buy local (but you get such great deals on the imported stuff!!) because that would probably not only be better for your health, but also circulate money around into your more local economy. I think it's important. Right now.. I don't really have the means to do this. But heck yeah! When (if ever) I do have money, I'd love to support this kind of lifestyle.

I've gone some what organic like in the food department. That doesn't seem too expensive to me but I guess its about where you shop. Forget about the organic beauty products though. No way I'm spending $20.00 for shampoo. Is it really that much in demand that the prices have to be so jacked up? Cause honestly Ive never even heard of most of that stuff. I'll just stick with my baking soda.

I have never been concerned about my health and my diet before like today. I used to not care about what I eat but now, I have started to incorporate organic food to my diet. not just because of health reasons but also for financial reasons. Thinking about it though, I dont think I can totally change my diet to a very organic one so I am just practicing little by little and hopefully I'd be able to get used to it.

I eat partly organic already, and it is amazing! But I do not eat all organic at the moment, because most organic stores are pretty far from where I live for some reason. So I go shopping there once every two weeks or something, and buy stuff every other week from a regular store.

I don't think Organic lifestyle is wide spread here in the Philippines. Although I do know a lot of people who eat organic foods as part of their diet. We do have here restaurants serving organic food. They use veggie meat in different recipes like salsa in nachos and although I'm not a fan of vegetables, I really loved how veggie meat tasted! It really tasted like meat!
