Organic Shmorganic

More and more I am under the impression that the only "organic" food products that are worth eating are produce items. Other than that, the rest of the organic foods out there are worthless.

I keep trying one organic food product after another thinking I am making a better food choice and I am upping my personal social responsibility rating, and the majority of the time, I only come to realize that 1) I've wasted a few more dollars, 2) I'm still hungry, 3) everyone who raves about organic foods must have burned off all of their taste buds drinking green tea and chai because organic stuff is gross.

Most recently, I would like to add to the list of gross organic foods: Trader Joe's Organic Brown Rice Fusili Pasta.

I made a simple dish with this pasta. I cooked the pasta al dente and added some tasty marinara sauce. I sprinkled on some fresh parmesan cheese and then I dug in. It is a dish I make often because it is simple and quick. This was my first time using this pasta and definitely the last. The pasta was terrible. It was chewy and sticky and had the consistency of a gummy bear. Terrible. Just terrible. Yeah it's gluten-free, cholesterol-free and sodium-free, but if I also wanted taste-free I may as well have just had a glass of water.

I have now decided that I am done with "organic" crap 'cuz that's what it all is, crap. Crap, crap, crap.
