What are rainy days good for? Recipe testing! Just took our chocolate scone recipe for a test run. Results: Yummy! SO good, my taste testers had to have a second one! Fair Trade organic cocoa gives it a deep chocolaty flavor and dark brown color. Look for them on the menu the Weekend before Valentine's Day! Get your early, they will be a sell-out!
Many people ask me "why should I eat organic?" There are lots of great reasons. I am going to share some of thosve reasons in the next few blog posts.
One really great reason to eat organic foods is that it is better for the planet to eat organic. Organic farming prevents millions of pounds of toxins from leaching into the groundwater. Organic farming does not use chemical fertilizers or pesticides. When used, they will go into the soil and ultimately into the water. This can take a long time and last a long time too. This inforgraphic shows how pesticide contamination from farming can occur:
50% of our drinking water comes from groundwater. It is important that we keep our groundwater sources clean for the next generation.
Eating organic helps keep our water pure. Remember when you eat organic, you are preventing poisons from contaminating the soil and the water. You are saving the planet. :)
