My Introduction to Organic Eating

09Oct10

My Mom bought me this awesome cookbook, Fresh Choices, last week and I’ve been pouring over it ever since.  It has tons of information about eating organic foods and why it is so much better for our bodies.  It has blown me away.  I always thought eating organic was unnecessary and kind of a waste of money, but not anymore. Since learning all of this new information I’ve been slowly buying a few organic items to get my feet wet, so to speak. In addition to being more nutritious, I’ve noticed the organic food I’ve purchased tastes so much better!  Last week, I purchased a pork roast that was free-range and antibiotic and hormone free.  I threw it in my slow cooker with an onion, three cloves of garlic and half a cup of water and let it cook all day.  It was the most flavorful, tender delicious pork roast I have ever eaten.  We polished off the last of it last night in pork fajitas.  Yum, yum. 

I tried the recipe below this afternoon and it was delish!

Orange Banana Smoothie

1 container (8 oz) organic vanilla yogurt

1 cup orange juice

1 fresh or frozen ripe banana, broken into pieces

1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon (optional)

Pinch of salt

In a blender, combine the yogurt, orange juice, banana, cinnamon and salt.  Blend until smooth and frothy, about 30 seconds.

Try it and let me know what you think!

  1. So are you eventually going to have organic cinnamon too? Like everything organic? I get coupons for organic stuff. I’ll pass them to you. They’re online. How did you get those possibly related topics to pop up at the bottom of your post?
