Organic Bananas, Carrots and Blue Corn tortillas chips made with Certified Organic Blue Corn.
These are regular favorites: the bananas go in our morning smoothie with assorted fruits, the chips are for our lunch.
The Carrots are for all of us.

Things have been looking much better lately at the two local stores where I normally buy our food, which are Walmart and Publix.
This week, for example, some very kind people, showed me the newest Organic sections in each of the stores and they were, I hate to admit, quite impressive.
Not only is Walmart trying harder, they actually seem to like hearing, thank you when they do something, as in bringing in a new Organic product that you like.
The newest purchases this week included Organics that were: fresh, frozen or packaged.
A little bit of this and a little bit of that.
I came home happier with my finds, than I have been in many weeks.
Now for the first time in a very long time, every meal that we have, has an Organic ingredient, or product in it.
The great new Organic Pasta Section at Publix is just awesome.
There are many varieties of both Pasta and Sauces galore and all are Organic.
There are Organic things there from around the world and some, I am delighted to say, are completely new to me.
Have you ever heard of Bavaette Lavorazione Artigianale?
It is an imported Spinach Pasta to die for!
I top it with a great Organic Basil Pesto mixed with the Garlic Alfredo from Newman’s Own.
There will be a picture here of it, when we have it next.
More good and inspiring news for we long-suffering Organic lovers here on the East side of Lake County.
There will be a new Aldi going in quite near to us soon and you can bet that I will be checking out their Organics.
We have not been to their store in the Villages since gas prices went up and the store is nearly 30 miles away.
But the new one will be right here in our neighborhood.
Aldi’s has always carried quite a few Organics and here’s hoping that the new store will have expanded on their already good selections.
It’s looking up!
