Choose Organic Real Food
In our life and business, we are here to help women live their best life mind, body and spirit. One holistic tip today is Why We Recommend Organic Real Food - 8 Helpful Ideas For Your Best Life
The journey we have taken to improve our lives and what we eat has been a long one with many changes over the years. And yet the one thing that has been consistent since 2008 is our knowing that organic real food is the best choice when it comes to our food each and every day.
Organic real food is considered the best food to eat for several reasons:
Fewer pesticides and chemicals: Organic foods are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, which can be harmful to both the environment and human health.
Better nutrient density: Organic foods are often rich in nutrients, vitamins, and minerals because they are grown in nutrient-rich soil.
No genetically modified organisms (GMOs): Organic foods do not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs), which are organisms whose genetic material has been artificially manipulated.
Better for the environment: Organic farming practices are better for the environment because they promote biodiversity and help to conserve natural resources.
Better taste: Organic foods often have a more intense, richer taste because they are grown in nutrient-rich soil and are not treated with chemicals that can affect the taste.
No artificial additives and preservatives: Organic foods do not contain artificial additives and preservatives, which can be harmful to human health.
Support for small farmers: Many organic farmers are small, independent farmers who use sustainable farming practices, so by choosing organic foods, you can support these farmers and help to promote sustainable agriculture. What we did early in the journey to learning about eating organic was to find local organic farmers for both our veggies and pastured proteins like beef, chicken, lamb etc. When you buy from co-ops or community-supported agriculture (CSA) programs for example: Joining a co-op or a CSA program can provide you with a regular supply of fresh, organic produce at a lower cost.
We also recommend that you Cook from scratch: Preparing your own meals from scratch can save you money on processed and packaged foods. It is important to note that not all organic food is healthy, as it can be processed and sweetened if you are buying packaged organic foods. Real organic food doesn’t come in packages and there is the opportunity to be able to know exactly what is in each meal you prepare from scratch. If you don’t feel you are a cook right now, we teach our clients to find 3 recipes that you know for certain you will enjoy and cook those 3 recipes until you know how to prepare them without the recipe. Then find 3 more new recipes and repeat. Over the course of a year, you will learn at least 10-12 recipes that you will enjoy and have a nice variety of meals through out the week to cook.
We appreciate that it may take a bit of extra effort and planning to eating real organic food, but it can be done, and the benefits for your health and the environment are worth it.
