Tonight is the first debate between presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. This much-anticipated face-off and the hotly contested primaries have dominated the news and conversation for months. Here at Boston Organics, we’re counteracting the stress, tension and noise of the election the best way we know how—cooking with fresh, organic ingredients. A side benefit of this method of coping is that it leaves the Boston Organics Community well-nourished and ready to be engaged citizens, whether by simply voting or getting involved in the campaign for a specific candidate or ballot question.
This Thursday, September 22 is the autumn equinox, when day and night are the same length. (Approximately. We're mostly interested in the poetics.)

The balance of light and dark at the equinox got us thinking about other opposing pairs. Read on to see how we're bringing together all sorts of opposites in the kitchen using produce from this week's boxes.
