So I was enjoying my piece of fruit for lunch today – an apple, in case you haven’t guessed – and I found an interesting surprise:
I guess this is what happens when your food isn’t sterilized, irradiated, pasteurized, and processed to death; this is an inspiring piece of living, whole nutrition – so good that the seeds in the core had already sprouted! If that’s not evidence that proper care was taken of this produce, I could not fathom what is. We have been getting most of our produce via a local co-op program called bountiful baskets lately, and I have been seeing some differences. Oranges that aren’t so acidic, bananas with a much longer shelf life, the most delicious plums and peaches imaginable. Anybody who thinks that sounds good and isn’t part of one should look into that, we pay $15 a week for a basketful of high-quality produce.
Are you part of a similar co-op, or of one that deals in meat, dairy, or other goods? Let us know what’s kicking on your neck of the woods.
