There are so many lifestyle diets in our world today, it’s hard to know which one is the best. I’ve always wanted to try to change my diet because I want to feel good about what I’m putting in my body. I decided that a weekend is a great opportunity to try eating organic. I don’t work on the weekends so I had plenty of time to enjoy shopping, cooking, and eating all of my meals. Deciding to shop for organic food can be overwhelming and expensive, but I decided to go to my local Harris Teeter.

Harris Teeter actually has their own line of organic products so I didn’t have to second guess myself when choosing my foods. I didn’t know they had such a wide variety of organic products. Not to mention I spent a fraction of what I would have anywhere else. I thought I may have had to shorten my recipe list for the weekend, but they had everything I needed and more. From ketchup to tortilla chips, Harris Teeter Organics didn’t let me down.
They have over 350 organic items to choose from all at wonderful prices. I’ve always heard organic products were expensive and hard to come by. Harris Teeter prooved me wrong.  I started my shopping trip thinking my recipe list was too long and ended up throwing things in my buggy that I couldn’t believe were organic that I just had to try. All in all, I kept my weekend recipes pretty simple. For breakfast, I made a delicious taco with scrambled eggs and cheese wrapped in a soft tortilla on Saturday morning. For Sunday’s breakfast, I prepared a big bowl of scrambled eggs with black beans and red peppers. Both were so yummy.
One thing I noticed about my meals over the weekend was how much color they all had! Making all of these organic meals opened my eyes to what I was putting in my body on a daily basis and I wasn’t happy with it! All of the Harris Teeter Organics products have no artificial flavors, growth hormones, GMO’s, pesticides, and a whole lot more. Lunch is always my quick meal. I want it to be fast and delicious, and it really was. Saturday I fixed a rice stuffed pepper with cheese, cilantro, and broccoli. I enjoyed it so much I decided to have it again on Sunday.I never thought going organic for one weekend could change the way I feel about my food. I was just looking to try something new but discovered so much more. Eating organic doesn’t have to be crazy expensive. It’s not just for insanely healthy people with full wallets. It’s not just for couples with tons of time to food prep. I can eat organic. College kids can eat organic. Families can eat organic. Not only do the meals I made look better, they made me feel better too. I kept it simple on Saturday night and ate a cheese quesadilla. I dipped each bite in a little sour cream and that was dinner!I really enjoyed my weekend shopping at Harris Teeter and making all of my meals organic. It was a great experience. I’m so glad I did it. If you’ve been wanting to try an organic diet I highly recommend trying it on a weekend like I did. Last but not least Sunday nights dinner was spaghetti with cilantro and tomatoes. This was probably my favorite recipe I made. It was also one of the simplest! It would be so fun to do this again and invite my friends over to cook for all of them too. I also recommend getting your products from Harris Teeter Organics. I was truly impressed with their quality and prices. I hope you enjoyed hearing all about my Organic Weekend!
