Going organic

One major change that my fiancé and I decided was necessary is to change the foods we eat. I have been reading lots about genetically modified crops and pesticides and the reports are troubling. So we are buying organic foods and I am loving going to the farmer's market and buying locally grown, chemical free food; we are trying new dishes and loving it. Here are a couple of pictures of recent dishes. I plan on blogging more about food as I think that it's important for people to know how the food in the US is increasingly contaminated with chemicals and GMOs.

Organic and vegetarian pizza- so yummy that we will buy a pie pan to use next time instead of aluminum foil:)
Quinoa with chard, mushrooms, and lentils- healthy, delicious, surprisingly filling

  1. I love buying from the local Farmer's Market. And we have our own gardens here too, and I can't tell you how yummy a fresh grown green salad (from our backyard) is compared to store bought.

    Good luck to you. And congrats. It's so hard for me to make a food change. Plus I can't buy all organic, because I can't afford it (For example at Trader Joe's, their organic costs a couple bucks more than the non).
