The nice people at Country Choice Organic sent me some coupons to try a few of their products. I picked up my three choices at Whole Foods today:
- Soft Baked Double Fudge Brownie cookies
- Old Fashioned Oats
- Vanilla Wafers
Country Choice Organic is such a great company (feel free to send me stuff anytime) 😉 . I love buying products that are made mainly with organic ingredients. It’s better for the planet and your body.
I got this from the Country Choice website and it gives you something to think about when it comes to what you are doing for yourself and your environment:
TOP 10 ENVIRONMENTAL REASONS TO BUY ORGANIC FOOD
1.Organic agriculture does not use persistent chemicals that pollute groundwater, a primary source of our drinking water.
2.Songbirds and other wildlife are not harmed by organic farming methods.
3.Organic farmers keep the topsoil on the fields, not eroding into our waterways.
4.Unique varieties of crops and livestock are more likely to be raised organically, helping to maintain a diverse gene pool for our food products.
5.Watersheds being farmed by organic farmers stay much cleaner and fish stocks healthier and more plentiful.
6.Organic farming produces a very healthy topsoil, rich with biological matter.
7.Rainwater is cleaner since persistent chemicals do not get absorbed into the atmosphere.
8.Organic farming builds and nurtures the earth so we can grow our food on the same fields indefinitely.
9.A wide variety of wild animal and plant species thrive on organic farms, supporting continued biodiversity on our planet.
10.Recent studies show that organic farming methods are evolving to the point that they produce equivalent yields to conventional farming.

I tried the vanilla wafers today. I bought some yogurt from Whole Foods as well and used it as a dip!
They were delicious! For 140 calories and 5g of fat you can have 7 of these wonderful cookies!
