Today we’re sharing some of our favorite videos about organic food!
This first one was commissioned by Chipotle to emphasize the importance of a sustainable food system. If you haven’t heard, Chipotle is dedicated to serving Food With Integrity – finding the very best ingredients raised with respect for the animals, the environment and the farmers. They strive to source their ingredients organically and locally but keep the big picture of the environment and sustainability in mind, too. I really love Willie Nelson’s version of Coldplay’s “The Scientist”!
Next up, we’ve got a great video from Howdini on growing an organic vegetable garden. The vegetables you grow will be more nutritious and delicious than pretty much anything you can buy. It’s a great way to get the family outside and teach your kids where food comes from. Plus, who wouldn’t brag about developing their own heirloom tomato! This video covers basic tools and setting up a plot. Also be sure to check out our post about growing food in your garden on our Rudi’s Gluten-Free blog!
Finally, we’ve got this cute little video about a girl and her potato project. With her grandmother’s help she first tried to sprout conventional sweet potatoes from their grocery store. She learned from the produce department that conventional sweet potatoes will never sprout because they’re sprayed with Bud Nip (aka Chlorpropham). An organic sweet potato from the same grocery store just barely sprouted, but a sweet potato from an organic market sprouted quickly and vigorously. I love how this smart young woman uncovered something most of us know little about and illustrated it with clear visuals!
