    I Will Not Eat GMO Foods

    I feel that genetic tampering is irresponsible, and genetic tampering with our food is wrong! We pay extra and are diligent to find organic whole foods. Feed your family, don't feed the corporate beast!

    Organic Foods

    I don't usually eat organic food.  I may buy something organic once in a while.  I don't know if this is true or not, I heard if someone has cholesterol, organic foods can help.

    Organic Really Rocks

    I find that organic food rocks (and I don't use that term, but fo this, yes). Flavor--the flavor is always more robust and savory Freshness--the poducts last longer and are juicier Ripeness--this stuff is actually ripe enough to get some of those all important enzymes (no chalky...
