For book club this month, we read Animal, Vegetable, Miracle by Barbara Kingsolver. I thought it was pretty good (other than the fact that she is a bit condescending to those of us who don't live/eat like her). So after reading it and listening to the discussion, I am wondering if I am the only non-organic mother out there. I feel like my grocery bill is high enough without paying for organic baby food, meat, produce, etc. I even saw an ad in a magazine about baby onesies made from totally organic cotton. Yikes, they were so expensive! I am going to try not to feel like a bad person because I buy bananas from Ecuador in the middle of the winter, I buy the cheapest baby food regardless of brand, and I have to admit that it really doesn't matter that much to me if the cow lived a happy life full of roaming freely and grazing about before ending up on my table.
