I’m not “against” organic food. In fact, the ask you’re referring to wasn’t even by me, but a post I reblogged from a Tumblr I adore. But no one I’ve ever met is “against” organic food. I’m just not going to pretend that organic food is available to everyone or that it’s the best option for everyone.
Long-term notions like that apply only when you can afford to worry about them. Growing up, my family could rarely afford great food. We ate a lot of stuff from cans, a lot of processed foods, a lot of fatty foods. Because when your options are a calorie-dense food that also is high in sodium or not getting enough calories to make it through the day because you’re only buying organic, there is nothing wrong with taking the choice that keeps your organs working.
I support food. I support whatever food you can afford, whatever food you can prepare, and whatever food you like. Organic food is fucking expensive, especially if you live in a food desert. I don’t support food-shaming.
Absolutely! (As long as you don’t have, like, a peanut allergy.) Whole grains are awesome fiber for your body, and peanut butter has amazing fats in it, as well as a lot of protein. Pair it with jams or jellies or sliced apples for vitamins and delicious carbs that will give you energy for your day.
Oh, thank you! :3
