I am learning to make the best choices I can, when I can and now trying to grow / make more!
Yes, I KNOW...it is a struggle; I do believe we pay more for the better choices now or pay more at the doctor later! LOL! I think there are certain things you just have to pay for organic like broccoli, strawberries, eggs. From what I've been taught and read, milk isn't a choice we should make anyway especially for kids. I know...can be shocking, but if you research it, you'll find that information. There are better absorbable forms of calcium, we are the only mammals who feed our young milk after weaning. Nature had a better idea in mind.
I wish it would be more mainstream and prices would drop! Right now it's only housing prices dropping...ugh...
Everything...is a choice
