Pilgrimage to Rome… Compostelle or Eastman!

Eat organic, buy local, avoid GMO… whew!

I’m doing my best to eat healthy food. I have read “Enter The Zone”, “Foods That Fight Cancer” and Renée Frappier’s books. I know what I should eat. But when I’m standing in front of the food market stalls, trying to buy smart (consume differently!), I sometimes get confused…
