  • Visit your local Farmer’s Market for the freshest picks It’s a fun thing to do once a week.  Grab a canvas bag and head off to  find organic produce while supporting your local farmers
  • Grilled, sauteed or raw, your veggies will go great with fish or chicken On the grill, in a stir fry or salad, find something new to blend with your favorites 
  • Pack in the antioxidants with berries, citrus fruits and melons Kiwis, lemon zest, strawberries, blueberries, cantalope – what a tasty fruit bowl!
    The Lingo……. 100% Organic: product doesn’t contain any pesticides, hormones, antibiotics or artificial ingredients; Organic: at least 95% of the ingredients are organic The Hype…….   All Natural:  not officially defined by the FDA; Free Range:  again, unregulated – suggests animals are uncaged;  Antibiotic or Hormone- Free:  anyone can claim it, supposedly the USDA is ‘cracking down’ on those making the claims
