    The original advice is good, but some people just won’t listen to polite remarks such as those suggested. A former roommate was like the questioner’s friend, always bugging me to purchase healthy/organic things. When polite remarks didn’t work, I had to flat out tell her to just not eat what I purchased if it bothered her that much.

    Have her read Michael Pollan’s book “The Omnivore’s Dilemma,” which has a section explaining that “organic” doesn’t mean what most people think it means. (And, if you have already tried subtlety w/r/t letting her know that her advice I would put the onus on her, not yourself. But I am also of the school that etiquette does not require anyone to go along to get along.)
