Hypocritical? Musings on Organics
I spend the money (slowly built up to committing to this) and at home nearly everything we eat is organic or local/close enough for me. The non-organic things are the bulk spices, the odd candy items, pudding cups for Toby and the produce on the cleanest list if the organic version is unavailable.
But we eat out a fair bit and I have no intention of only going to organic restaurants. In fact a tend to avoid them as I am not a vegetarian and when I go out to eat, I tend to look for meat items (since we don't eat a huge amount at home, lol) and most such places in Seattle are vegan places. I feel no worry about the odd fast food items. About all I worry about is not going to places with questionable fish (in Seattle it is easy to find wild seafood while eating out) and, getting wheat bread if I have any bread and getting kosher hot-dogs (taste.)
So I am feeling a bit hypocritical but I am presently justifying this with it is not feasible to eat in everyday for us. Also, I subscribe to the "I will do what I can, when I can" line of thinking. Thoughts? If you are choosing to eat organics, how do you feel about eating out?

"No American president has ever supported a major expansion of civil rights that has not ultimately been adopted by the American people - and I have no doubt that this will be no exception. The march of freedom that has sustained our country since the Revolution of 1776 continues, and no matter what setbacks may occur in a given state, freedom will triumph over fear and equality will prevail over exclusion." -Michael Bloomberg
