The Seven to Avoid

Did you know that there are foods that even the farmers who grow them will not eat! I have been reading a great piece about these foods. 7 Foods So Unsafe Even Farmers Won't Eat Them. The following foods are outlined in the article. Check out the article for the details.

1. Canned Tomatoes

2. Corn-Fed Beef

3. Microwave Popcorn

4. Conventionally Grown (Not Organic) Potatoes

5. Farmed Salmon

6. Milk Produced with Artificial Hormones

7. Conventional Apples 

For me it always comes back to grow what you can, buy local from farmers you know, eat in season, buy organic.

Wow, microwave popcorn...I had no idea. As part of growing my own food, I really need to get a bigger garden so I can start on that fruit tree grove;)

I did a post on this subject after reading it in Prevention magazine - Great minds think alike :) -This year I am growing my own potatoes even though my space is limited. I'm growing some in a upright bin.
