Hi there, I have a question about the level of nitrates in vegetables. I've recently read that the levels of nitrates in vegetables can be up to 100 times higher than bacon, which is now apparently fine. Like most Paleo people I eat a LOT of... (more)
I'll start off by saying I'm pretty noob to organic produce. I was thinking about signing up with a local CSA, but noticed they consider their farms as "sustainable agriculture" vs. organic. Does anyone know how much of a difference this would... (more)
