There’s very little chance you haven't heard about the organic food movement. What is it all about? Is organic food really that much better for you?
Organic is an agricultural production method. Farmers gain the organic classification by controlling certain factors in food production.
The nutritional quality of food isn’t significantly different from non-organic foods. It’s more important to look at the overall quality of your diet. Are you eating an abundance of plant-based foods? That’s a better place to start improving diet than refusing to eat anything designated non-organic. Consider the overall quality of your diet first.
It’s more important to pick the best foods that fit your budget.
Whole foods and lean cuts of meat are smart choices for your diet. Eliminate the processed foods, added sugars and excessive sodium.
Enroll in a cooking class at a local store or community college. Ask a friend for cooking technique lessons. Use these skills to prepare delicious foods for your family and gain control over what you’re consuming.
