Many people these days believe organic food to be healthier for you. An estimated 70 billion has been spent on organic products and the number is growing.
When it comes to non organic farming, many of the pesticides have been linked to many cancers, and neurodegenerative diseases. Non organic produce has shown to have toxic metals and pesticide residues. This is pesticides you ARE ingesting.
In a recent study, it has been determined that organic produce had superior nutritional content, and organic tomatoes had shown a 20-30 percent richness in lycopene, and higher levels of antioxidants. When organic strawberries were tested, they had shown a higher nutritional value in terms of antioxidants, and had a richer color than non organic. I’m sure a lot of you are asking yourselves, ” what does organic mean? It really comes down to respecting our environment, and keeping our people healthy. Organic farmers do not use pesticides, fertilizers, growth hormones or GMO’s. Your basically paying more for a higher nutrient product that helps in promoting good health.
As I feel, organic is the ultimate best. There are some foods that you can get by with buying non organic, but there are the ” dirty dozen”, and these foods are best bought organic.

These are best bought organic. It doesn’t just stop at fruits and vegetables. Meat should be bought organic . They have higher amounts of linoeic acid and higher omega 3 fatty acids. I know it can be expensive to shop organic, but in the long run , it pays for better health. That’s what we all want correct?

I’ve never felt more energized, and healthy than I do these days. I’ve been eating a raw diet , atleast 80 percent of the time , and I couldn’t be happier with the way I feel.
It can be very difficult to change your eating patterns if you are use to eating a certain way. You may be one that loves sweets. Guess what? You can have raw , vegan treats. If you are one that craves fried foods, then it may be hard in the beginning, but I promise you WILL adapt. I use a method of 80/20. I eat raw 80 percent of the time, and the other 20 , I allow my healthy non-raw treats. I hardly ever eat bad. I just have come to the determination that eating healthy is key to a healthy life and a healthy body.
There are some great ways that will help you with the adjustment. I know many of you think that eating a raw diet consist of just eating raw spinach everyday. Wrong! There are amazing raw recipes that will really hit the spot.
– Start slow. You don’t have to go 80/20, overnight , or 100 % overnight. It takes time. It’s a process. Start by getting up 1 day a week or 3 days a week, and replacing your breakfast with a fresh raw juice. I do this every morning, and I love it. The small changes will give you a great start.
-Try substitutions. Are you a pasta eater? Try making zucchini pasta instead. It’s delish. Substituting pasta with a zucchini noodle is the perfect start. Do you think you can’t do without your milk? Try almond milk or flax milk. You will surprise yourself on how much you may start to love it.
-Make a full menu for the week only with raw, vegan meals. Tell yourself your going to try it for one week. I can’t tell you how many amazing meals I’ve cooked that are raw and vegan. They are delicious. You have to start somewhere. If you have faith and discipline, you can do anything.
Changing the way you eat for the better will not only change your body and mind, but it will change your life.
