Organic Thanksgiving on a Limited Budget

Tips from the Organic Consumers’ Association:

1) Be strategic in your organic purchases: Focus on replacing the “Dirty Dozen” fruits and vegetables (those with the most pesticide residues) with organic alternatives: apples, bell peppers, celery, cherries, grapes, lettuce, nectarines, peaches, pears, potatoes, spinach, and strawberries.

2) Host a potluck: Have your guests share a fair portion of the burden of expenses, and you can have more time to focus on providing a nice atmosphere.

3) Buy less food: About a quarter of food from Thanksgiving meals ends up being wasted.

4) Use smaller plates: Large plates result in people taking more food than they can eat.

    Yes, but make sure your guests get back that $%&^*!@#!! Tupperware in which they brought their contribution, or you’ll hear about it for the rest of your life. 🙂

    I heard the pilgrims actually just dashed out to Krystal.

    So the Pilgrims invented the pickle flip game, who knew!

    If the Pilgrims had had Tupperware, so many of them wouldn’t have died that first winter. If they’d had Krystal, more of them would have died!
