Last week, I went to a farm to purchase 50lbs of potatoes and 1/2 gallon of maple syrup and met the farmer's wife. She's a sweet lady who's very down to earth and a conservative Christian. We chatted a bit about Nourishing Traditions and healthy living. During our conversation, she mentioned that it would be best for me to put the maple syrup into glass jars when I got home. Plastic gets into our food and alters the flavor. I remembered a friend of hubby and I's who nearly died from cancer suspected to be caused by an over-exposure to plastic. While he was going through chemo, he learned about the dangers of plastic, particularly in our foods.
So, today I had a crazy idea. I wonder if I could successfully eliminate as much plastic as possible in my home. Can you imagine how difficult that can be? I mean the computer alone, the fridge, Bubby's toys, even parts of my garments...plastic. Still, I might give it a go and see what I can eliminate.
The picnic was great, by the way. We all had a grand time. The weather was cool, but not too chilly and the food was excellent. Hubby picked out a Christmas tree while there, too. We have a string on it so we know which one it is when we come back for it in December.
