“Comparing apples to apples.”

02 Jan

Remember what real food used to taste like?  Nope, me either.  Until I tried an organically grown apple for the first time, and nibbled on an organic carrot that I realized the taste difference.  It seemed like a flavor explosion in my mouth of what the true essence of what that apple at its best tasted like, and from then on I knew the phrase “comparing apples to apples” took on a new paradigm shift for me.  I tested it out, comparing a conventionally grown apple of the same variety with its organic counterpart, and true enough, the organically grown one won hands down in crispness and sweetness. Even the skin on the apple was more tender. Why?  Because they were raised differently.  Pesticides, preservatives, and that “shiny wax” they put on produce to keep them fresh” has reduced us to fruit that has become “fruitless,” so to speak.  There is something to be said for letting an apple ripen on the tree versus ripening on the truck on its way to the grocery store.  So the next time you are in the grocery store, do the taste experiment yourself and see if you can taste the difference.  A pound bag of whole organic carrots is only $1.49…start there.
