The bad thing about strawberries (I eat them, though) is that in California they are grown in rows that have been covered with plastic (yes, virtually all your strawberries come from there). I assume it is to get fast crops but of course soil... (more)

For all those interested. I have found a farm that sells meat Nation wide (UK). They haven't gone through the expensive process of labelling their foods organic. I have emailed them though and all animals are fed the correct food type IE beef... (more)

I've read the list of what they send - but I wouldn't want 25 chicken breasts, I'd want 10 or 12 whole chickens. Similarly, I'd rather have 4 steaks and lots of other bits of meat with nice sinews and collagen-y bits to make stews and... (more)

If needing to be very budget minded I would lean toward organic eggs and canned fish like sardines, mackerel, salmon, anchovies, mixing them with olive oil (instead of conventional mayonaise) is a good first step toward a more paleo style.

In asking this question, I am not necessarily seeking a 'right answer', I am looking to have discussion regarding everyone's feelings on 'mainstream' organic products. I understand that there are laws that dictate what defines organic, but do we... (more)

My opinion is that CAFO meat is better than no meat at all, ie better than becoming a vegetarian. We are surrounded by toxins all the time. Yes, there will be some in the meat as well. But the meat has nutrients we need.
