Religion or Way of LIfe?

Why eating organic is like a religion:

  • You keep it to yourself because it only effects you
  • People think you're an asshole if you push it on them
  • You pick and choose the things you want to eat organic
  • You feel guilty when you don't eat something organic
  • You sometimes feel sorry for people who don't, but you don't say that to them
  • You secretly judge people for not eating organic
  • It costs more money
  • You find other people with the same organic beliefs in a big building, usually on sunday and all facing front. 
  • You find yourself at parties looking at the food and asking "is it organic?"  (I feel for you Jewish folks out there) Was it ever sitting next to non-organic food? Was it processed on the same equipment as non-oranic food?

While most of my food is organic, i'm not completely bat shit crazy about it. Some foods I ONLY buy organic, some foods there is leeway, and other foods I don't give a fuck. 

Holy shitballs. Have you ever eaten organic peanut butter? Jaysus, you may as well get a straw and drink that shit up. No, for this one give me all the processed fake shit you can find. I love me some Skippy. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE. Have you tried the honey roasted peanut butter?? OMG. You'll die. I literally eat it with a spoon. It's insane. 

So see? I'm not organic all time. But neither is any Mormon, Christian, or Catholic for that matter. I do my best. In reality- It's Big Daddy who's the big organic requester. He watches all these documentaries about what's going into our food and he tells me "we need to buy organic food from now on" so I say OK. 

Hmmmmm, this sounds familiar. Where have I heard this before? We listen to someone preach about what's good for us and then we go do it. Hmmmmm, I can't.....  quite.... put my finger on it..... I know I've heard this somewhere. I'll get back to you.
