I'm still on my mission to go organic....free from pesticides and nasties on my veggies. I am still trying to get produce from farm shops or grocers but blimey you forget how convenient supermarkets really are.
I want to try and buy my fruit and veg in paper bags instead of the plastic but when I'm already shopping in Tesco it's so easy to say 'oh I'll just pop that in the trolley and go farming another day'. I'm passing the fruit and veg, it's right there in big shop but I can still buy organic at the supermarket.
It's the blooming price as well that's chuffin hard. I mean if organic is going to better for your health which means less trips to the doctors then surely it should be cheaper than the stuff that's covered in nasty pesticides. Jamie Oliver likes me to eat organic, we don't have a conversation about it but he seems to pester me on the telly and I think well yes you're right Mr Oliver but you can afford it mate. He does do a lot to sort crappy food out though I'll give him that.
I know pesticides have their purpose, they keep the bugs off the fruits and vegetables but seriously I'm not thinking it's good. I've probably been eating loads of non organic produce for years but something has just snapped inside me. No don't worry brewsters there's no broken bones here just a feel for wanting a healthier diet. There's nothing with that eh?
Anyway wish me luck, I am going to be doing some research and I will keep you posted. I think organic tastes nicer but is that just psychological because we are told it is? I think I'm willing to pay a little bit more for more nutrients and less toxic chemicals. It's a wonder we are not walking around with a toxic layer around us with all the rubbish connected with processed food and non organic produce.
Oh that reminds me, talking about a glow around us, can you remember the Ready Brek adverts when people walked around with a orange warm glow around them to give the idea it will warm you up in the cold winters? Well I'm still waiting for mine. I think there may be a problem as it isn't Ready Brek that I'm eating, just porridge but I haven't seen known Ready Brek eaters with their glow a glowing. Mmm mis sold Ready Brek....bet there's a claim for that.
Well I'm off to organic land, don't forget Free From Friday covers anything which is basically 'Free From' not just gluten free, dairy free, meat free. Let me know if there is anything you would like to hear about and I'll see what I can do. For now though take care of yourselves, I will be back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday......
Bye for now.
