Bittman: "Eating Food That's Better for You, Organic or Not"

Some people assume that those who eat healthy eat mostly organic foods. However, the concept of eating well shouldn’t be afforded such a narrow focus.

New York Times food writer and cookbook author Mark Bittman wrote a great piece last week on this topic.

Click here to read the article. Follows is one telling paragraph:

"No matter how carefully I avoided using the word “organic” when I spoke to groups of food enthusiasts about how to eat better, someone in the audience would inevitably ask, “What if I can’t afford to buy organic food?” It seems to have become the magic cure-all, synonymous with eating well, healthfully, sanely, even ethically."
