This Blog is quite a broad departure from what I normally write about, which is Endangered Animals, Global Culture and Evil Corporations.
The impetus for beginning this Blog today, came from my continuing disappointment and failure to find anything, but a narrow range of real Organic products here in Florida.
As with today, all I wanted to do, was to find some Organic Spinach to use in a Quiche later this week, but it was simply not to be.
Wal Mart, which is where I normally buy much of our food from, always with an eye out for anything Organic, chooses not to carry Organic Spinach.
Today, lucky us, they had Organic Bananas, yeah, once a month, this is their idea of a tiny reward, for the thousands of dollars that we spend there each year!
So, I had to, as usual, make a special trip and stop at a Publix to find it.
There are several places near us, that claim to carry Organic products, but upon discovery, they quite frequently are not.
Today, as a result of yet another frustrating trip in search of Organic anything and in what hopefully will not be a futile effort, to educate myself, perhaps find some like minds or kindred spirits along the way, this Blog begins.
This ongoing failure to find Organic anything, is only exacerbated by the fact that after living in Southern California for more than 30 years and having easy, convenient access to healthy Organic Food and countless other products, coming to Florida is just so hard to adjust to.
People often refer to this phenomena of coming here, as “culture shock,” but in this case, it is ” food shock.”
The Journey will be a hopefully joint venture, or effort, with you and me.
I know that real Organic products are out there, but as the title at the top says: finding it, aye, there’s the rub!
We shall begin….
