I wish everyone had the knowledge of where our food comes from. Most people just have a singular belief, and that is, that organic is more expensive. Of course organic does cost more, I think we need to go deeper than "it's more expensive"; after all it's going into our bodies! The government warns us about smoking, drinking alcohol, and taking drugs. Does the government tell us about the chemicals, pesticides, antibiotics, genetically modified foods and grains people ingest every day? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genetically_modified_organisms
For me, I chose organic and locally grown. I am totally in agreement with the slow food movement started in San Francisco. A meal should be made with fresh organic ingredients, cooked with love and savored. http://www.thenation.com/doc/20060911/waters
My plan for this blog is to share my favorite recipes, all of which I make with organic ingredients.
