How much organic do you eat?

I’ve been eating organic food for decades, way before it became trendy and in the news. In my mind it made intuitive sense to eliminate pesticides from my body. At times it was challenging to shop for organic food; I was shopping at very small co-ops which did not have a large organic variety. I’m glad that there are so many places to buy organic in Phoenix, where I live and that farmer’s markets, many which grow without pesticides and herbicides, have grown so much across our country. I love supporting local farmers and eating delicious, local, in-season produce.
