There are a lot of great things about living in California.  The great weather, the mountains, the beaches, rivers, lakes, and all the amazing landmarks we have to visit.  However, one of my absolute favorite things about living in California, is abundance of natural resources we have.  In particular, the fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts and pasture raised animal products produced from our awesome farmers.  California farmers generate over 100 billion annual economic activity for our state and farming is one of the largest employers in our state.  We feel blessed to live in an area where if we wanted, we could go to a farmer’s market everyday to purchase nearly everything we need to flourish with healthy living.  Not only do we have farmers markets to purchase local foods from, but many of our grocery stores carry California Grown products.

If You’re Eating Tuna, You Should be Eating Safe Catch!

If You’re Eating Tuna, You Should be Eating Safe Catch!

I used to dislike tuna.  Not fresh tuna but canned tuna.  Mainly because I had heard such horrible things about the fish they use and the way they catch the fish.  Many big brands use longline fishery which is the use of a long fishing line with multiple hooks that can stretch for many miles. Thousands of tons of seabirds, sea turtles, sharks and other marine life are hooked and then left to die on the lines.

So I just avoided it.  Then I discovered that there were companies that were committed to sustainable fishing practices and distributing a product that is safe to eat.  Even still I worried about mercury.  What most people these days worry about when they think about tuna.  Especially those of us with kiddos.  Mercury is highly toxic and kids are most susceptible to the harmful effects.

Luckily there is a brand that is creating a product that is not only sustainable but is produced with tuna that has been individually tested for mercury.  Yes you read that right, EACH fish is tested for their mercury level.
