On Thursday, the superstore behemoth announced its plan to partner with Wild Oats (which you may recognize as a former subsidiary of Whole Foods) to offer a line of organic goods at unprecedentedly low prices in 2,000 of its U.S. stores. To start, the line will offer primarily canned goods and other pantry staples that will cost up to 25 percent less than those of other organic brands. At first blush, this appears to be great news. Cheaper, more accessible organic food -- isn't that one of the prerequisites for the kind of healthy food system we've all been waiting for? The New York Times notes that Walmart's big move could ultimately create a larger supply of organic goods, pushing down organic prices in the long run. From The New York Times: "We're removing the premium associated with organic groceries," said Jack L. Sinclair, executive vice president of Walmart U.S.'s grocery division. The Wild Oats organic products will be priced the same as similar nonorganic brand-name goods. If that sounds suspicious to anyone familiar with organic growing practices, it should. For those not as well-versed, we're here to help! We spoke with Coach Mark Smallwood, executive director of The Rodale Institute in Kutztown, Penn., about how Walmart could manage to offer such low prices, and what that might mean for organic farmers across the country. Smallwood explains that the concept of a "premium" associated with organic food is misleading, because the price of an organic good reflects the true cost of its production. "The issue is that there aren't the subsidies available to organic farmers that there are [for conventional farmers.] So there's a question in my mind about how Walmart is going to pull this off and be able to make profit," Smallwood said. "And for them to even come out and make that statement before they've started is a huge question mark. Somebody's going to have to pay, and my hope is that it's not the organic farmer." Smallwood also shared his concern that if Walmart were to incentivize large-scale organic production, industrial organic practices would become more widespread. In this model, farmers adhere to just the bare minimum of organic standards and ultimately end up depleting soil health on a piece of land, abandoning it, and moving on to another. "Will a large agricultural operation come in and buy up tens of small family farms and put them all under one name, and then create that slash-and-burn model?" Smallwood said. "That's what I'm afraid of. That's the [possible] downside." 3 Steps To Join #FowlerNation! 1. Subscribe To The Fowler Show: http://bit.ly/SubscribeFowlerNation 2.

What to buy if you can't afford organic meat... FREE "Grocery Savings Made Simple" video course: http://tradcookschool.com/gbbc “Is it better to eat far less meat, but eat high quality meat, or is it better to eat more meat that is conventionally raised?” asks Heather. Heather’s family is large, and they’re struggling financially. She wants to eat the best quality meat, yet her budget doesn’t go that far. Are there any OK compromises or should they just eat less? **My Answer **Consider Your Priorities My friend Tiffany (teacher of Grocery Budget Bootcamp) shares this tip: "Remember what your priorities are, because that’s where your money should go. Some families prefer high-quality meat, some prefer raw dairy, and others prefer local produce. Decide what’s important first and your money will follow suit!" For “the money to follow suit” we have to do the hard work of disciplining ourselves not to overspend in other areas of life — so there is actually money that can bridge the gap! **By The WayWant more money-saving grocery tips from my friend Tiffany? Sign up for her FREE Grocery Savings Made Simple Video Series to discover simple ways you can save money on real food groceries (yes, real food!!!). It even includes a free printable workbook. I know you’ll get a lot out of it! http://tradcookschool.com/gbbc **Remember This… Conventional food may be cheaper in the short-term, but it’s not as cheap as we think! Consider the host of problems it has the potential to cause in the future. Poor health, doctor bills, lack of productivity, low quality of life… some of those things cost money, some of them cost happiness. No doubt, they all cost. (The Hidden Cost of Junk Food explains this even more.) **#1 Consume Your Meats With Broth. Broth is considered a “protein sparer” in addition to being soothing to the digestive system and oh-so-healing (more on it’s benefits in #2 of this post). This means, it helps your body assimilate and use more protein from the protein you’re already eating. If you need to serve less meat, serve it with broth so you and your family members will get the maximum nutrition from the meat you’re eating. **#2 Eat More Of The Quality Protein That’s Affordable In Your Area. Are eggs or yogurt or beef or chicken less expensive where you live? Then fill your diet with those — your food dollars will go further and provide more protein and healthy fat for your family. And natch up the cheap bones and organ meats your local pastured farmer or butcher offers! **#3 At The Very Least, Avoid Genetically Modified. One of the worst characteristics of conventional meats is that the animals most likely ate genetically modified corn or soy. GMOs are not healthy and can in fact be poisonous. Unfortunately, GMO takes conventional animal husbandry to a whole new level of unhealthy. I think GMO is worse than conventional — and conventional is pretty bad. Avoid GMOs - Look for the NON GMO Project Verified label. You can also buy organic or natural certified. Both of these certifications require that no GMO feed be used. **#4 Make A Healthy Compromise With Certified Naturally Grown. In every food group, there is usually a worst, better, and best option. The worst is conventional meats (feedlot, GMO feed, antibiotics, pesticides, etc.), while grass-fed and/or organic (without being grain-finished) is the best. What about the middle? There’s a new certification — Certified Naturally Grown. -strengthened standards for living conditions and access to pasture, AND -good quality feed (non-GMO and no synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides) that’s not necessarily organic certified — which keeps the costs down and options more open for farmers who are trying to do the right thing. I think Certified Naturally Grown is a great compromise. If it’s available in your area, it’s likely to be cheaper than organic! All things considered, organic meat is becoming more and more affordable. Even though it’s not necessarily local or raised on pasture, organic chicken and/or eggs is non-GMO and another doable compromise, in my opinion. Watch sales at health food stores or warehouse stores like Costco. **Bottom Line I would prefer we don’t eat conventionally raised meats. We have evidence that the organ meats are toxic. Plus, conventionally-raised animals often eat genetically modified feed, and GMOs are linked to long-term health problems. I would rather we meet our family’s protein needs within budget by: -Consuming lots of broth to up the protein assimilation of the protein you can afford. -Spending your available food budget on the cheapest forms of quality protein — even if you’re mostly eating eggs! -Making only these compromises — purchase Non-GMO Project Verified and/or Certified Naturally Grown (and organic on sale).
