What is wrong with people? We suggest eating 9 to 11 servings of veggies and fruits each day, yet we send out a blanket statement not to eat fresh spinach. What about saying, "Don't eat bagged spinach or suspect spinach"? If your spinach is locally grown and you know its source, eat it, please.
I was quoted in The Press Democrat on Saturday, September 23rd along with Larry of Triple T Ranch and Farm about this spinach issue.
Also please check out the website for Wake Up and Eat to read a bit more about the spinach scare.http://www.wakeupandeat.com/principles.htm and look at Principle number 9 -- Consider the Source. This book and DVD will be out in 2007 and I will keep you up to date on the progress with it.
In the meantime, please shop at the farmer's market and buy local when possible. It could save your life, or at least make you feel better about your choices.
