firstly: has anybody on this forum toured? fully loaded, camping and all?
I have been toying with the idea of another bicycle tour this summer. My experience last summer was 50% cooked 50% raw vegan. we could not be picky with the grocery stores encountered and you had a 1/20 chance of having the option of organic fruits and vegetables. this did not bother me much then.
but i did not know then what i know now... about the dangers of "conventionally grown, non organic" foods. Ive been working at a local health food store with an entire bookshelf full of information. for example: over half the molecules of irradiated foods turn into free radicals and over half of the nutrients are destroyed.... excitotoxins and the brain... etc.
if i were to encounter organic fruits and vegetables, i would naturally want to stock up... however i learned the hard way that every ounce counts!
i guess you can see where i am going with this...
tis the delima
any words of advice?
