I was wondering if wal mart sells usda organic yogurt,cheese,granola, cottage cheese,milk,cereal and other things you might know of?

I'm going shopping today. I am completly changing my diet. IF I can't find usda organic dairy I won't buy dairy. Please remember I have severe ibs and am trying to cure it. Since I started a product called Shakeology I am able to eat more foods and notice the severity of the ibs has lessened. I"m on my way to a really healthy and purest kind of diet I can get. I chose to eat cage free humanly raised well fed meat from well treated animals. (please respect my choices and if you disagree please ignore this thread then)There is 1 Health food store available its inside one of the grocery stores...I have seen soy milk but didn't notice any usda organic yogurt and other things..soy alternatives(I won't eat soy and my body can't handle it either)I did notice some brand's like annies salad dressings and usda organic coconut milk,thats nice..I'm really on a hunt..Can you get ezikiel bread at wal mart?

You should check their website. Or even call your local store.

many times when I search online it doesn't show some things that I ..know they have..also I would be on the phone forever I would get directed to the food department(watever its called) then the person would have to go look around and tell me what they find and it would end up being a very long call I don't want to take the chance of having to hang up on them when I have to rush to the bathroom sorry I just felt more comfortable asking in the forums...

also usda organic search only shows 2 books..

yogurt search only shows boxed products..

looks like I will need to go in to find out if I don't want to be on the phone

I buy free-range meat and eggs and products that are not tested on animals. I don't buy dairy, but I do buy organic. I live in an area where organic is really easy to come by, though. I also do not shop at Walmart for a number of reasons.

It's Wal-Mart, not Whole Foods. You can't expect a significant discount and have the same product that's double or triple the price elsewhere.

If you want to go organic, go with your local farmer's market or co-op store. Think local stores, not national.

My primary concern is that my dairy be hormone and antibiotic free and my local grocery store's private label dairy products do not use hormones or antibiotics for their cows, so I purchase their stuff which is much cheaper than organic.

I dont buy organic because the usda does not police the companies selling the products. The set the rules, but do not make sure they are being followed. So I believe that most companies label non-organic as organic to increase the selling price. I have seen studies where they have found no difference between the non-organic and organic produce grown in the same part of the country.

Organic in lots of situations is a sham and stupidly expensive unless you grow your own which is the way to go... then you are sure.

Organic is not always better for you in some foods. Often times they are the same quality but organic is priced higher. I do try to by all natural foods and foods with fewer ingredients in them.

I'm a poor student, so right now I can't afford to buy organic, but when I am more financially stable, I definitely will be buying organic milk and meats.

I think they are overpriced and they still have to adhere to the same FDA standards

yes it sounds like there's alot of tricks going on to fool consumers...I believe if you do enough google searches and research you can find out what usda organic brands are more true than others and stick with the highest rated ones. link

at our wal mart in this town it seems the only usda organic I'll be buying is the stoneyfield usda organic yogurt...

I don't eat dairy. In fact, in addition to helping my allergies, and lactose intolerance, getting dairy OUT of my diet, 100%, is one of the things that took my IBS from a 9 in intensity to about a 2. It took a year to get all the dairy proteins out of my body, and about 12 months for my body to recover from the damage done by the lactose. I simply don't touch the stuff, organic or not, it's still the lactational fluid from a bovine animal, and we really weren't meant to eat it.

I only eat butter on occasion, but noting else from the tit of a cow. (I learned by trial and error that butter has little lactose and few bovine proteins in it, so it's safer than milk or cheese etc) It just makes me so sick, and no mammal was meant to consume milk after weaning, and that means the milk of the animal's own species. OK. Off soap box now. (I have issues with dairy products, I don't think they are meant to be consumed by humans.)

I buy other things organic, but I prefer Whole Foods. I trust Whole Foods, I don't trust Wal Mart.

I think usda and FDA are diffrent..usda has certain standards such as no hormones injected or pesicides used. I'm just trying to be extra careful sometmes I have severe ibs and am trying to cure it with pure food from good sources for example grasslandbeef.com and I buy usda organic when I can but I also look at studies and read more into the brand names and see if there have been complaints or studies done to see if they are cutting corners or lying about anything.

Thanks for sharing. I will think about this more. Before I had ibs I didn't have a lactose intolerance,that I know of anyway. What kind of milk should humans consume then? rice or almond? I don't like the fact that there is no usda organic rice or almond milk,well in this town anyway..I can't handle soy..and I;m one of the people that believe its unhealthy its a genetically modified food thats not meant to be eaten.

Honestly, you really don't need milk. If you can't handle soy, and a lot of people can't, then either rice or almond (although if you go with almond, keep it to no more than once a week, because nuts can be allergenic, and people with allergies tend to develop more as they get older to the foods they eat the most) Also, I eat an "ice cream" made from coconut milk (it's not a nut, it's a seed) and it's wonderful stuff. The "cheese" I eat is soy, but they make some nice rice based cheeses, too. Also, there is one brand of almond based "cheese" but again, you don't want to eat it daily.

You don't need to drink milk, you aren't an infant or a toddler. My kids haven't had milk since they were toddlers, and that was only human milk. (although my youngest one does drink organic soy milk from time to time, but not every day) They nursed until they weaned themselves, then water became their main beverage, as is mine. (although I wasn't nursed for but a few weeks. My mom wasn't given the right information from "the doctors" and even though my dad's mom and grandmother and aunts knew EVERYTHING about breastfeeding, she didn't listen to them. It's water (or milk) under the bridge, so there's nothing anybody can do about it now.)

The soy stuff I eat is only organic and not genetically messed with. But, some people's systems can't handle soy, so if you can't stay away from it.

yes I don't need milk. I like to have it everyday with my shakeology and sometimes a recipe calls for milk...Well I have been have rice dream milk everyday. I wonder if its the healthiest for your body to have no milk?

I have just been watching the food channel more and enjoying the fact I can eat more foods now I couldn't even eat before. I realize alot of the recipes are't healthy on there. I wondered if I cut out all junk except added usda organic dairy products I would be really healthy and still be enjoying a little "junk"

It can be perfectly healthy for a body to go without milk. Think about what it really is - it's a nutrient filled liquid secreted from the mammary glands of lactating mothers (whether they be human or animal) with the biological intent of feeding their young. There is no reason for adults to have milk and it's a very common idea nowadays that that's why so many peoples' bodies can't process it - they're not meant to. There is also nothing in milk you can't get elsewhere.
