Wake up the right way with this Caramelized Onion, Broccoli and Spinach Frittata. Made with organic onions, broccoli and mighty spinach, this frittata will hit the spot for a quick weekday breakfast or weekend brunch.
Oh so you thought you were just here for this Caramelized Onion, Broccoli and Spinach Frittata recipe? Think again. Sure, this frittata is awesome (and downright delicious!) but what it stands for is equally as important. So letâ€™s chatâ€¦
If you watched my Week in the Life video you know I was recently down at Earthbound Farm chatting with their team. Not only do I love hanging out with their team (hi guys! youâ€™re the best!) but itâ€™s also so nice to be around people who understand and appreciate organics. They donâ€™t require any convincing on the topic. They see it every day and they just know, it is the only choice.
So what do I mean by â€śonly choiceâ€ť? Iâ€™m talking about the health of our planet. Because while conventional produce may have given access to cheap produce across the US, itâ€™s depleting our soil in the process. And guess what? This means we wonâ€™t have a planet to enjoy that delicious salad or freshly picked raspberries.
We just got deep REAL fast.
If you read my 5 reasons to choose organic post you know how passionate I am about this topic. Iâ€™m on a mission to educate people that organic is not a marketing term. It is a strict set of regulations that farmers must follow that ensure the preservation of our food system and our planet. Its impacts are greater reaching though. It is better for our bodies, better for our farmers, better for our soil and honestly, it just tastes better!
But today Iâ€™m focusing on one topic and the reason I choose organic.
I choose organic for our planet. A planet that Iâ€™d like to leave in better shape for the next generation. That means adopting farming practices that not only slow climate change, but actually reverse it. Evidence has shown that organic practices actually store more carbon in soil. On average, organic farms have 44% higher levels of humic acid, the component of soil that sequesters carbon over the long term, than soils not managed organically (source). That means the soil is effectively â€śeating upâ€ť the carbon that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere, reversing the impact of climate change (source). THATâ€™S HUGE!
â€śBut organics are so expensive!â€ť I get it. I know cost can be a barrier to entry for so many, but without a planet we can use and enjoy, the marginal increase in price for organics doesnâ€™t matter all that much, does it?! That being said, I think itâ€™s important to recognize our own limitations (right now) and make conscious choices where we can. That may mean swapping out one ingredient for an organic version. Or perhaps three so you can make this Caramelized Onion, Broccoli and Spinach Frittata!
There are many reasons why organics are the better choice but today I encourage you to make the choice for the planet!
