Nutrients

High Nutrient Dense Foods are more important than ever. Did you know a research study shows that an orange had 8 times the vitamin A in 1963 than it does today. And there is half the calcium in carrots and tomatoes and half the magnesium in apples than in 1963.

So eating food with the highest nutrient levels we can find is essential for the body to thrive. For us, this means organic and whole because the soils on organic farms are more nutrient dense. Hence the food is, and food in its whole form still has the high level of nutrient the food grew with. Once the whole food is processed in any way, it loses some of its nutrient value.

That there are lower nutrient levels in conventionally grown food is the main reason we choose organic, but we also notice a big taste difference. Try it for yourself, compare organic to non-organic and see what you think of the taste and how your body responds.

Today’s recipe is straight from the farm. We volunteer for a local organic farmer and she has this unbelievably beautiful and vibrant kale that wintered over in a greenhouse. She let us pick all we wanted, so it was a no-brainer what we would have for dinner.

We picked 2 big shopping bags of kale, brought it home and made a super dish with it. We steamed a BIG pot of kale, added frozen peas and corn at the end and topped it off with pumpkin seeds and a little bit of raw red cabbage. So quick and delicious. Talk about Farm to Table… this is it!
