Every now and then I will use a spark recipe, but I eat totally organic and their recipes tend to have to many preservative rich additives and "short cuts" that just make it difficult to find substitutes. I have taken many of my mothers recipes and have converted them to organic and lowered the quantity as there were usually 6-8 people at are dinners. I learned to cook for a large number of people (from her) so when I am making something I really really like, I will make a large batch and save and freeze. But mostly for me, It's all about being able to figure out what spices compliment which basic ingredients to the foods I am planning on eating and i keep it very simple when I am unsure.
I would really like to have organics as an option on the food tracker, as I end up saving all the labels from the food I eat to put into the tracker.
But this is the choice I have made for myself and I realize it is something a lot of people don't participate in so I am willing to do what is necessary.
I have just recently (the last 3 months) started eating totally organic and it's a lot easier and much cheaper than most people realize. I get food, some dairy, and some meats from our State Farmers Market, so I am eating pretty close to locally and and since the vendors are there I can ask what they do to their veggies and meats to make sure they are not drug filled or organically modified seeds, etc.
I have my folks that say they are going to be there year around with stuff appropriate to the season and those are the ones I support their farms with my purchases.
