Do Your Body a Favor ? Eat Organic Food!

Posted by sophiamilller on October 14th, 2011

In today’s fast-paced world, people have gotten themselves so busy that they even compromise the kind of food they eat. Almost everyone is into fast food, but in the long run they are just doing more harm than good. It would do these people some good to turn their attention to organic food. Making organic foods part of your regular diet (even from just time to time) will make a lot of difference in your health, for there are a number of benefits you can get from them.

You should ask yourself: have you eaten the right quantities of fruits, protein and vegetables? Chances are, you have not. And chances are, your health is failing you even if you still do not notice it. Even trying to make an attempt to eat fruits and vegetables for a change is not enough because nowadays these are laden with chemicals, pesticides and hormones. What you need to focus your attention on is organic food. Incorporating fresh and natural organic foods in your diet means getting the health benefits of good food without all those added harmful chemicals and all.

For the meat eaters, there is even organic food for you: hormone-free meat products and produce. These are not chemically-laced or jam-packed with antibiotics that could cause genetic mutations in you as well. One of the benefits of eating organic foods is that these have around forty percent more antioxidants compared to options that are not organic. Furthermore, organic food actually tastes better because you get all the natural tastes that came straight from nature. Would you rather eat a big bland genetic carrot or a small but flavor-packed organic one that tastes sweet?

Nutrition-wise, we all know that organic foods have copious amounts of nutrition in them. They may not be as big or as colorful as other supermarket variants, but you can be sure that organic food did not go through a process to make it bigger or more vibrant. It was just planted in good soil and cared for properly and in the natural way, just like they did in the past. This method also helps the environment  in general because it encourages sustainability and the use and reuse of soil. It is a bit disconcerting to know that people grow veggies in test tubes and in labs, right?

When you go for organic food, you are able to meet your body’s daily nutritional needs without having to stuff yourself so much – which is good for your figure. Why will you count calories and nutrition if you buy chemically-laden products that require you to consume four potatoes just to get your nutritional needs? It is better to have one small but vitamin-packed potato that tastes good and does not bloat you up for the sake of nutrition. Doing this will also mean you spend less on food because your stomach gets used to having less to digest to make you feel full.

And of course, being an advocate of organic food means you are doing your fellow citizens a favor by supporting their businesses. You can buy organic foods in many farms (better to buy straight from a farm rather than pre-packaged at a supermarket, which will just cost more) and you can sleep well at night knowing that you helped these hard-working people earn a living without having to destroy the environment and your health.

It’s time for you to give your body a break by eating nothing but organic food. Not only will organic foods give you health benefits, but the good it does is also spread out to other people and the environment in general.
