So, I just popped out to get a few things from my local grocery store. I was really hoping to get some organic, locally grown produce. I am hitting up the Farmer’s Market this weekend, but needed some stuff to hold me over.
Do you know where I found the organic food? In a sad little bin off to the side. Do you know what I found? Two types of apples, and some old pears. This is when I stopped and asked myself a few questions. When did it become harder to find things that are in their natural state, and not altered by man than those that are? Why is it that “organic” is marked instead of “chemically enhanced” being marked? Why is it something rare that people buy what is found in nature yet completely common to digest pesticides and who-knows-what-else? How far have we come from what people are meant to eat that this is the situation at a major grocery store?
