30 Bananas a Day!

I'm putting this question out for feedback. I have limited access to fresh produce and only one opportunity to shop weekly where there is organic. I am mainly having problems with enough greens on hand for salads and smoothies.

So in a pinch, is it better to have organic frozen spinach on hand for smoothies, or to go to the only store in town (that I don't typcially shop at) which carries non organic fresh greens.

Hi Jnanda ♥,
would it be possible for you to start growing some of your own greens.
Organic leaves are pretty easy to grow, and can be grown indoors in pots and containers, if you do not have access to a yard.

I think freezing affects the cell structure of the greens. I know most frozen veggies are also blanched (heat-treated) prior to being frozen. I am not sure if this applies to Spinach.
However, I am just reading the chapter on pesticides in John Robbin's 'Diet For A New America', and the info on chemicals used in food production makes for some truly eye-opening reading.

I guess you have to weigh the pros and cons up, and make a personal decision.

Is there a community garden near where you live? They are often organic and usually have a good supply of greens.

Love and Peaches ♥ XX.
