Forget The Superstore, Live Off Your Land

Going organic at home? It’s a smart move, particularly if you’re concerned about your health and the health of your family. You wouldn’t believe how much food that you buy in a store is altered these days. Chemicals can be added to vegetables to ensure that they grow as large as possible. In some cases, vegetables and fruits are even genetically altered before they are grown. Then there’s meat which is packed full of antibiotics and other substances that can still be present in the meat when it’s sold. You might think that you’re safe just buying produce labeled organic, but don’t be so sure. There is evidence to suggest that this label can have quite a broad meaning. It depends on the seller. So, how can you go organic at home?
