Ingredients I Use to Cook With and Where to Buy

I can't afford to do everything organic, but I always try to do our meats and dairy.

Cook with Coconut Oil(Whole foods) & Grapeseed Oil (Trader Joes)
Use as salad dressing Olive Oil (expeller pressed-not sure who has the best deal)
Oils you should cook with and use ( I became a member in order to have access to this site- very great "natural" advice)
Raw Cheese - (Trader Joes)
Raw Milk (Own a cow share) -just because it is milk in its natural form
Free range & Organic Chicken (kroger, trader joes (1.99 a pound for legs) or Whole Foods(Tuesday has the best deal on rotisserie at)
Free range beef (Whole Foods)
Wild caught fish- Salmon, Ocean Perch, Flounder at Aldi or Trader Joes frozen Cod fish tid-bits (wild caught- basically organic)

Organic butter (the highest amount of pesticides is stored in fat) (costco seems to be the best deal)
Organic whipping cream (Costco has the best deal)
Agave (a sweetener that I use in a lot of things instead of sugar/ syrup) Costco is the best deal by far
Xylitol (another sweetener, can be substituted for sugar in recipes- The Vitamin Shoppe, Whole Foods)
Veganaise brand Mayonaise (Whole Foods - its pricey, but is made from Grapeseed Oil & tastes good)

Bread- Udi Gluten Free Bread (Whole Foods) Food for Life Gluten Free Bread (Kroger, TJs or Whole Foods) Ezekiel Sprouted Grain Breads (Trader Joes, Kroger, Meijer, Whole Foods), Trader Joes sprouted grain brand or Trader Joes Gluten Free Bread [I try to avoid oil in breads]
Pasta-brown rice noodles (Trader Joes)
Quinoa is a great side, similar to rice or couscous but is a complete protein (Costco, Whole Foods TJs)
Organic broths (Kroger, Costco, TJs, Whole Foods)
