Some developments. I attended a health summit called eat4earth.org and learned a little more about toxicity of plants. Besides soil depletion (lack of minerals/vitamins), plants will uptake heavy metals, and anything blown in and gets into the soil. Since the green revolution of the 60's we went monoculturing, so many of our plants are grown in depleted of minerals dirt, and with chemicals, synthetic fertilizers are where the nutrients come from most often.
Pro tip: Vitamins don't work/absorb well without minerals!
Again, I won't eat anything retailed at a grocery store that went through processing. That food better be in its original form with no additive of any kind whatsoever or it's not eaten by me. Extra work, looking for small growers who compost instead of fertilize but it's worth it. Growing your own, testing your soil, preserving, freezing, drying, also work. I think I was able to finally find some oatmeal that is glyphosate free, but I can't be 100% on that, it had bugs in it, that's a good sign. I always look for the bugs, or bug sign, that's one way to tell a plant doesn't have chemicals applied to it.
EWG is a good resource to research your foods and waters. Here is an example of one of our most poisonous plants that we feed our people.https://www.ewg.org/foodnews/strawberries.php
And, I found some of the best meat I have ever had this last year, just by getting pickier, and pickier, just don't eat much of them. Organ meats are very high in demand in organic circles, the bones can be too as hipsters are into bone broth now. A good book is Sally Fallones Nourishing Broth. I make big batches of it in two gallon pots, then freeze it. Another secret is meat broth, I can get a cow heart for cheap from my Amish friends, I don't want to deal with eating it so I cook it down, and make broth/stock out of it.
Don't forget about fermenting your vegetables, very fun, great way to preserve, and get them in season when they taste the best! I also got into growing sprouts this year, sunflower and pea are all I'm doing now but I'd really like to get into the micro green shoots as well. It's a bit of work. Being able to source your own plants, growing them in your own medium and home is absolutely wonderful, and cheap.
Factoid: Blood type A's can do very, very well on a plant based diet, and are also more prone to heart disease than Type O blood types who do better with more meat proteins.
