Growing up as a child you probably heard the saying ‘You are what you eat’ at school and never gave it much thought, understandably so. However, as you grow older, you become more health-conscious and start taking a greater interest in your health, perhaps by choice or just taking an interest in healthy eating.
As soon as you mention “organic or healthy”, people immediately think “that’s too expensive” which is not the case with buying organic foods. An organic diet does seem a bit expensive, but a lot of people don’t know that you can eat organically without breaking the bank.
Buying organically grown food is the best choice because nourished, well-balanced soil produces healthy, strong plants. This is especially true with heirloom varieties which are actually cultivated for taste over appearance.
Few of the many reasons why you should opt for organic foods is that:
Generally, organic foods taste better, which is why they are a smart priority regardless of diet.
- Organic foods are free of chemicals called neurotoxins, which are toxins that have the potential to damage your brain and nerve cells.
- Organic farming promotes farming sustainably and responsibly. It means not burdening the land with excessive chemicals.
- Organic food tends to be fresher. If you live close to organic farms, you can easily get the freshest produce straight from the farms. If not, then you can purchase them from your supermarkets.
Choose the organic way and start by eating freshly cooked, healthy meals made at home. Throw out foods that are inorganic or no longer fresh and start making regular trips to the shops or market to enjoy a constant supply of fresh, organic.
