If you've got a yogurt addiction like I do, picking up a selection is a weekly must. But prices can climb when it comes to organic options. With commercial brands ranging around $4 for a 2-pound container and organics at $6, you might find reading the label helps with the decision. Added sweeteners, artificial flavors, and preservatives make going organic a good choice — and worth the splurge.
When considering milk options, our local grocery carried conventional milk at $4 per gallon with organic options topping out at $7, which is a bit of an investment. But reaching for the organic means this drink is sans Bovine Growth Hormone, antibiotics, and pesticides. And the verdict is still out on if there's any real difference in taste between organic and commercial milks.
Verdict: Splurge on organic dairy products to cut back unwanted hormones and additives.
