There are few retailers that deliver well in the real food stakes, but at the moment Sainsburys, for me, is the best I have shopped at.

Although the prices aren't the cheapest, they have the largest selection of "organic" produce.  However I do have concerns about the amount of food they waste since during one evening visit I witnessed unsold bread being thrown out by the sack load.

Anyway, today I received some interesting correspondence via snail mail.

With a little potted history inside

Some useful coupons which are actually all for stuff that I always buy anyway

A wee page about Sainsbury's stand on deforestation.

That's good.

Which makes me think of us here in the UK.  We harp on about rainforests but think it's ok  to concrete over our own vegetation.  Also gone are our tiny fields with hedgrows so that more food can be produced.  This not only hasn't helped wildlife but I also wonder if that is why we suffer with flooding - there's less woody growth to drink up the water.

But I digress

All bananas are fair trade bananas - worth boasting about.  Now what we want to see is "All fruit and veg is organic"

We can hope and we can also vote with our feet, and pen and paper.

And the icing on the cake - so to speak
A Sainsburys recipe

A real food recipe!  Looks good but haven't tried it yet
