abyssinia: Sam Carter's first view of Earth from space and the words "all my dreams" (Default)
[personal profile] abyssinia
I've recently moved to Scotland, having spent the last five years living in what is one of the most food-hippie towns in the US. I've been dabbling with paleo-style eating in the US, and was learning to navigate all the various food labels (natural vs. organic, free range, grass fed, etc). I don't eat everything organic, but at least in the US there were certain foods where I tried to go organic due to a higher likelihood of pesticide retention.

So far of the two grocery places I've explored (Morrisons, and a Tesco express) I haven't seen anything labeled "organic", etc. The closest I've found to any sort of that type of labeling has been for free range eggs (and one tiny section of gluten free processed food). I also know there are different regulations on food here than in the US so some of that may not matter as much.

Does anyone have any advice or resources for learning how to navigate food labeling here? Any good sources for local/organic/etc? [I've found they have a farmers market here once a month]. Any recommended UK (or Scot) paleo style bloggers?

thanks!
