Berkshire Organics is the 1st Right to Know GMO Market in North America to be Spotlighted!
In 2008, Aleisha and Brian Gibbons started a small, local and organic produce delivery service out of their home in the Berkshires area of Massachusetts. Today they not only run a thriving, year-round market and delivery service, but they've also helped a friend, Pamela Denholm, start her own produce delivery service for residents in the South Boston area. And they've started a local school delivery program that they're converting into a 501(c)3 non-profit.
But that's not why we named Berkshire Organics to our list of Top 'Diligent Dozen" Right to Know Grocers. Berkshire Organics made our list because of Aleisha and Brian's commitment to educating themselves and consumers about GMOs, and to working to eliminate GMO products from their market, even when it means losing customers or profits.

- April 20, 2013Day 7 Kosmic Cleanse from Maya (Click to read more):
Well, here I am on the last day of the cleanse...feeling great! I lost 2 pounds this week, my energy and clarity are better than they've been in months, and I was told by a friend today that I have a "glow" (never a bad thing to hear ;-). I'm also very cognizant of the fact that I haven't found the Kosmic Cleanse to be difficult in any way, whereas some cleanses and diets I've done in the past found me grumpy & tired, craving junky foods, and sometimes just giving up. The big difference here is that I'm actually looking forward to continuing a lot of the things I've been doing over the past 7 days. To clarify, here is what I have planned for my transition from the Kosmic Cleanse to a sustainable food lifestyle:
Keep right on consuming at least 7 servings of vegetables & fruits, every day. Whether it's with a green smoothie, a veggie roll-up, or a hearty soup, my body has really responded to the increase in produce in my diet, so I intend to honor that & continue to eat as many fruits and veggies as I can!
- Re-introduce seafood, but reduce overall consumption. I will also be diligent about origin--ensuring that the seafood I eat is clean & comes from either a sustainable farm or is caught in a sustainable way.
- Re-introduce eggs, which I get from a friend's farm. His girls are pastured & happy, and the eggs are naturally full of omega 3s and other nutrients.
- Re-introduce dairy, but reduce overall consumption. Although I usually try to consume pastured butter, cheese, and other dairy products, it hasn't always been a priority. I intend to make it one, eating less dairy overall, and ensuring that it comes from pastured cows, sheep, or goats.
- Re-introduce beef, chicken, and pork, but significantly reduce consumption. As I intend to do with dairy, I plan to only eat organically raised and/or pastured chicken and pork (preferably local), and only eat local, grass-fed beef. My intention is to eat meat no more than once a week.
- Stay gluten-free. I've actually been without wheat for about 2 months now, and I originally went off of it to see if it would make a difference with my chronic back pain. Now I notice that whenever I eat it, my pain gets worse (not a huge surprise, since wheat has inflammatory properties). Thankfully, I have Sami's lavash & bread, as well as Tinkyada brown rice pasta. Both allow me to satisfy those carb cravings without causing painful flare-ups.
- Significantly reduce sugar intake. I have a sweet tooth at times, but I feel confident that I can satisfy it with fruits and better-for-me options like dark chocolate or something homemade and yummy--with a lot less sugar.
- Re-introduce alcohol. I'm not a big drinker, but I really do love wine. In fact, when considering Katherine's advice to re-introduce 1 thing at a time when coming off the cleanseor coming off the cleansefor coming off the cleansefor coming off the cleanse
- April 18, 2013Day 6 Kosmic Cleanse from Aleisha (Click to read more):
On day 5, I had some cravings set in. I was missing cheese and eggs. However, I am determined to finish this cleanse with no cheating at all so I let those cravings subside. As I mentioned on day 4, this cleanse has really opened my eyes to how well the body responds to plant foods. The green smoothies are really one of the best ways to get several servings of fruits & vegetables at once. Katherine made a good point on one of the support calls when she reminded us that we should be getting 8-10 servings of fruits and vegetables a day and when you start your day off with a bagel you’re basically setting yourself up not to reach those goals. Each morning I have made a smoothie filled with berries, some citrus, hemp seeds and GREENS. Katherine really emphasizes the importance of greens for optimum health. They help detoxify the body and aid digestion as well as provide numerous nutritional benefits. I have used mostly spinach, salad mix, and kale but I have also used parsley and cilantro. Herbs help rid your body of toxins especially metals. With day 6 almost behind me, I am ready to take on the last day of this cleanse feeling better than I ever have!
- April 18, 2013Day 6 Kosmic Cleanse from Maya (Click to read more):
With 1.5 days left on the cleanse, I must say that I'm feeling really good. My energy is up, my skin is clear, my mind is sharp, and my body just feels better. I've had a really busy week, but having food already prepared has kept me on track throughout. I've been reaching for my homemade soups and stews quite a bit, and finding that a bowl of something hearty and hot really keeps me going throughout the day. I'm also in love with the fast food veggie rollups that Katherine recommended early on in the cleanse. With a Sami's spinach lavash, a spread of hummus, a sprinkling of kalamata olives, and a bunch of colorful vegetables, each rollup delivers on both texture and taste. And in the few instances when my sweet tooth has kicked in, I've found that an altalfo mango really hits the spot. What's amazing to me is that I've been without cravings this whole week. (Well...I did really want a glass of red wine last night, but otherwise I've been fine.) I was even confronted with some homemade cookies yesterday, and I had zero interest in them. Incredible...
