Food These Days

I wanted to pass on an article I read in the New York Times on Breeding the Nutrition out of our Food. It’s a little discouraging, but it’s something we should all know… So give it a read.

For a little teaser, have a look at their infographic below (click on it for the source URL of the graphic, the article is here).

On an up note, our CSA (community supported agriculture) Plan B Organic Farms grows some of the old breeds, like purple carrots and purple potatoes, and often include arugula and other dark green leafies, which is encouraging.
