Organic Living

That's not to say I don't weaken and buy tinned soup (only Baxter's which is the nearest to homemade!), Marmite etc... And I don't take it to the extreme of some friends who make their own Ketchup etc.
My husband adores Marmite! I'm afraid I never got a taste for it, though knowing you are in Scotland, I have to say that before we started trying organic living, I tried haggis and I loved it!

We try to only buy locally grown meats, but I definitely only by meats that are grain fed and have not been injected with antibiotics or hormones. I do buy organic canned soups, but we are lucky to have a Whole Foods supermarket close by. Do you have Whole Foods in Scotland? It is a great chain that started in, of al places, Texas! They carry a large variety of Organic foods, produce, meats, boxed cereals, rice milk, eggs, etc. EVERYTHING! I love that store. There is also another chain in the Western US called Wild Oats that is similar and a smaller chain called Trader Joes, though neither have the variety of Whole Foods.

What part of Scotland are you from? My husband has been to Scotland but I have not, though I really want to. My great grandfather was a Campbell!
