The Back to Basics Approach of Organic Foods

Organic benefits

It was not that long ago that organic foods were only available in natural food or specially stores, and in some areas they were not available at all. Their popularity has grown in leaps and bounds. Today, they are available in grocery stores all over the United States. Organic food benefits include being better able to taste the food because organics are grown without the use of chemicals or pesticides.

Other organic food benefits stem from the fact that it is an environmentally friendly process. The procedures used in organic farming promote soil and water conservation. Organic farming can also help to reduce pollution. Organic food benefits us, the environment and the earth.

The benefits of organic foods can include improved health. Foods grown without the use of chemicals are better for us. There are USDA standards for organic food and for organic farming.

Francis Pitt has made a name for himself in farm-to-table organics, working at restaurants in Portland, Seattle and Burlington, Vermont. While he has a taste for the extreme, most of his restaurant’s top sellers are much more down-to-earth, regularly featuring mushrooms gathered from the slopes of the Cascades, and fresh wild-caught seafood from the Oregon coast. Inspired by trends in Portland, his latest restaurant offers the ultimate chef’s table: dinner begins in the morning at his island collective farm, and 4 lucky guests every week get to follow the food, literally, from the field to the plate! Francis is a firm believer that you are what you eat — do you really want to be a chemistry set?
