Whether this is because of the new awareness of pesticides and GMOs, it has definitely led to changes in most grocery lists. Supermarkets like Whole Foods that carry organic and vegan products are notorious for being considerably more expensive than the other leading supermarkets. This is why it is wise to identify the items that cannot be found in the regular, more less pricey supermarkets. By doing a little research, making the transition to an organic and/or vegan lifestyle can not only be painless, but also cost-effective!
