We came across this chart recently that shows the difference in nutritional value in vegetables grown with organic methods versus conventional commercial methods. We were SHOCKED! We’ve always thought, a veggie is a veggie is a veggie. But not so. Turns out the ways in which our produce is farmed and harvested makes a huge impact in the benefits we get from it by the time it’s put on our tables. Take a look – how does your favorite produce measure up?
Ever since the American Cancer Society proclaimed a direct link between obesity and cancer deaths, we on the Pink Cart team have been working on a new Be Healthy section on our site as a destination for readers interested in leading a healthy lifestyle. We would love help from you, our friends, in this area so if you have topics, recipes, book reviews, exercise tips or ideas that would contribute to a woman’s good health please send them in for posting as this is our collective site to share.
It’s International Women’s Day. And in honor of women across the globe, we think it’s time to have a discussion about some changes we need to make here at home. There’s been a lot of buzz lately about a political commentator calling a young female lawyer who testified before congress a “slut” and a “prostitute” because she was advocating for wider, more affordable access to birth control. There was a snafu on our Facebook page earlier this week about it, too.
We are doing a little jig, ok a BIG jig, over here at the Pink Cart team headquarters because we just BLEW through a financial goal of raising $250,000 for the American Cancer Society!!! THAT is a lot of money and we know that every penny is going to the important work of research and breast cancer awareness across this great country. Did you know that when you buy a Pink Cart in your community your $5 makes it back there?
