I am currently reading The Omnivore's Dilemma, which is a revolutionary study of the current state of the food industry. You might say it looks like the celery above.
One of the most important lessons of the book is the need to support local, sustainable organic farmers.

I now realize that it's time to use the best ingredients all the time. So I signed up for Organics to You, a local company that delivers locally farmed organic products to your door. We'll start featuring each basket, delivered every two weeks.
This will be a great challenge to see if we can utilize all of the product. How exciting! Here's this week's basket:
