Even Though It’s Organic…

This week, I thought I’d share a quote by Michael Pollan. I love the message he conveys.  Let me know if you do too!

“Organic Oreos are not a health food. When Coca-Cola begins selling organic Coke, as it surely will, the company will have struck a blow for the environment perhaps, but not for our health. Most consumers automatically assume that the word “organic” is synomymous with health, but it makes no difference to your insulin metabolism if the high-fructose corn syrup in your soda is organic.”

–Michael Pollan

Until Next Week…Plan Well, Pack Well, Live Well,

    Thank heaven for the Michael Pollans of the world. You as well Katie always keep us informed. It seems as though corporations add the word organic to something
    and expect us to think it’s great. As you have said in past blogs – READ THE INGREDIENT LABEL!
