My friend and I have this discussion often because at our supermarket, the cauliflower sometimes has small green caterpillars under the plastic wrap. I refuse to buy it because of this. My friend does buy it. Her logic is, if the caterpillars are there, the cauliflower must be free of pesticides. In a time when we don't know what chemical concoctions we are consuming or how manipulated the plant strain is, maybe she is right. I still have a mental block that won't let me buy, what I consider inferior food. Which do you prefer? Bug free, pretty but possibly deadly or veg with free protein?

I think many of us are evolving with our expectations surrounding foods. The more we know about what we are eating, the better. Thanks for your response.
That is an interesting angle. I never really thought about the weedless lawn. I will have to mention this to a friend who seems to be plagued by dandelions.
Next week at the supermarket, I will look at the cauliflower, completely differently. Thanks
In my heart I know she is right but from years of conditioning, it is hard to make that mind shift. Maybe I would feel different if the price was reduced. My cheap side would take over.
I think we all need to rethink our buying and eating habits. Tx
don't you mean fewer pesticides? the grammar nazi who doesn't bother to capitalize anything has struck.
In the area I live, some of the hygiene procedures we are use to don't exist so spraying them isn't an option. Cauliflower and broccoli are quite expensive here and I hate paying top price for bugs.
