Most of my recipes are made with 100% organic ingredients (where possible). Why? Quite simply, we are what we eat...and the thought of all those chemicals and pesticides in and on our food makes me more than a little nervous. America's corporate food practices are harming us and a way of life. The motives behind corporate farming are plain and simple—make money, at whatever cost. Anyone interested should read Michael Pollan's books, watch Food Inc., etc. The information is out there, but we have gotten so far removed from our food and so ingrained in the fast food way of life, that we've become disengaged and willing participants in the cycle. I believe ‘natural’ is the only real way forward and think we have settled for less-than at the expense of our health and the environment. Not only does organic simply taste better, it's a win-win on every level.
