The new year is a time for new resolutions and changing your behavior. While it takes dedication to actually commit to a new workout regimen or waking up early for a morning walk, changing your diet to all organic doesn’t take too much of a lifestyle change. It just takes some patience and determination to take the time to research and verify your food is actually organic.
Choosing organic food means fewer pesticides in the ground and means healthier food for you and for future generations. However, organic products tend to be a little on the pricey end so the next best option is to buy locally grown produce. When you buy locally grown produce you are helping the local farmers and local economy. Lastly the next time you are at the grocery store try and look for products that are made with recyclable packaging. (Source: Eco Home Ideas)
How to ring in 2014 — the organic and healthy way
- Try to buy organic whenever possible – Visits markets such as Whole Foods and Fresh Market. Don’t forget to visit your local farmers market too, they are normally a good source for quality earth-grown produce.
- Go green – You’ve heard it before, but when your New Year’s Eve party ideas include things such as barley, kales, and lentil soup, it is best to source from wholesome products, straight from the Earth, the way nature intended.
- Recycle – You’re never too old to recycle. You’re probably going to have a mess of trash, so here’s a great time to put things back into motion. Take your plastics, aluminum, and glass over to a place that recycles. You’ll be glad you did.
- Organic pot luck – It’s every man (and woman) for themselves, but the great part is you get to exchange some healthy choice ideas, hopefully all made from organic products. (Source: examiner.com)
