Hi guys, check out the article below from Isabel De Los Rios of Beyond Diet about what Organic Food is really all about. I found the article from her and she does a great job of presenting you the information in a way that is easily understood.
As she writes below, there really isn’t anything to be concerned about with Organic Food. The benefits can sometimes outweigh the extra cost. Remember though that eating organic foods is not a requirement of the program to successfully lose weight.
The Real Truth behind Organic Foods – By Isabel De Los Rios
Many people are unaware of what organic food really is. It seems that everywhere we go now, someone is promoting something that is “organic”. Are these foods worth your time and money?
It almost seems like some people are afraid of organic food. Could this be possible? Are people afraid that eating one morsel of organic food is going to somehow instantly initiate them into the organic food cult where you’re only allowed to wear sandals made from tree bark and deodorant is prohibited?
I swear I have had people say to me “Well, you can’t be that organic because you wear make-up and you don’t smell.”
What? That’s not what organic means at all! All it means is that the food or the product has been grown the way mother nature intended: without the use of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides and fungicides. In other words, naturally!
Are some people afraid of the price? Organic does not automatically mean “break the bank”. Many times when I compare the price of the organic food versus the conventional food, they are only a few cents different. In the case of the bag of organic carrots I bought today for my lunch, they were the exact same price as the conventional ones. Imagine that!
