Bad. Better. Best.
It’s “What to Buy” in three columns.
I have been asked more than once to collect all the “avoid this” terms in one place, as well as to make a list of “good foods, bad foods, and compromise foods.” This three-column list is my attempt to meet these needs.
You’ll find a list of things to avoid, the ideal choice in a given situation, and the compromise option that you might just have to take if budget, time, or availability prevents the ideal.
The categories include:
- Meat and Poultry
- Fish and Seafood
- Storage Containers and Cookware
- Personal Products
- Cleaning Products
Yep, it’s pretty much “Kitchen Stewardship: the Condensed Version.”
New New New!
I updated and redid the whole list in 2015, and you can see that much-better-version HERE – I hope you enjoy it!!
In 2011, I created a post that fits nicely with this list. It’s called When to Splurge, Settle, and Skip and focuses on keeping to a budget while seeking the best of real food and natural living for your family.
For an extended version of that, Stephanie Langford will give you all the details in Real Food on a Real Budget, an eBook.
