I am one month into my Nutrition Consultant program and I love what I’m learning. The first module focused on the basic tenets of eating for health. A friend suggested that each week I give a summary of sorts about what I’ve learned, which I thought was a great idea. I will start doing that this week. The first bit of information I want to leave you with is that if you are ever choosing between local, nonorganic produce and organic produce from far away, choose local. Organic produce is great for reducing your toxic load. But if it’s shipped, trucked, flown or otherwise arrives from long distances (for instance, some grapes come from Chile — that’s thousands of miles away), then the good stuff like vitamins, minerals and antioxidants will be greatly reduced. Not to mention the amount of fossil fuels used to get them to you is huge. Instead, opt for local if you can.
Tonight I am cooking the next recipe in the It’s All Good recipe book by Gwyneth Paltrow. If you need a refresher on this project, it’s all laid out here. I need your help. I am trying to choose between two salmon recipes and want you to choose!
I’ll make whichever recipe gets the most votes by 4:00 today!
