I was munching away at my supper tonight (spinach salad with orange bell pepper and almonds, and some chips and guac,) when I found a renegade crab grass strand in with my salad.
I actually enjoyed this finding. Why? Because I know my spinach was growing in a field somewhere, free and happy, with real dirt and crabgrass and maybe a few weeds and insects, to boot. It always kind of freaks me out when you get conventional greens -- they seem "too clean" to me.
The weirdest thing is conventional mushrooms -- they are WAY too clean. Dude -- mushrooms are supposed to be dirty!
Give me a few renegades any day, if that means my food's the real thing!
