Really, breakfast for dinner is one of my most favorite things in the whole world! Tonight, I'm having leftover pancakes with pure maple syrup, soy sausage, and a green smoothie (made with spinach, frozen peaches, and OJ.)
There is an article in my most recent issue of Eating Well magazine (the Aug/Sept. issue,) titled, "Organics: Are They Worth It?" It summarizes much of the research comparing organic to conventional produce, mentions a few other issues associated with organics (buying local produce over far away organic produce because it had to travel much less, and is thus better for the environment, even if it has some pesticide/herbicide residues on it, etc.), and has a handy chart at the end titled "Where to Put Your Money." (It lists produce in three categories: "Preferably Organic -- Most Commonly Contaminated," "If Budget Allows, Buy Organic," and "It's Your Call -- Least Commonly Contaminated." The article is very, very interesting, and if you can get your hands on a copy, read it!
