Health is the Key to Real Wealth

“It is health that is real wealth and not pieces of gold and silver.” – Mahatma Gandhi

In every phase of our lives, from infancy to childhood, and from early to late adulthood, we need to consume nutritious foods in order to foster good health. Knowing that we have the ability to build healthy strong bodies for our families and ourselves simply by eating good food is extremely empowering. Unfortunately, just eating “the right foods” is not good enough anymore. We have to become mindful eaters in order to truly grasp the power of eating to improve our health.

Mindful Eating

Mindful eating is a holistic approach to eating that encompasses all the senses and answers question like: Where did it come from? How was it made? Was the animal’s welfare taken care of?

Do you really know where the foods you are buying are coming from?

Why Choose Organic?

Mindful eating and eating for the wellness of your body and mind are effortlessly linked when one chooses organic foods, and here’s why…

Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Buy Organic

  1. Nutrient Rich – Studies and research show that organic products are rich in nutrients such as Vitamin C, antioxidants, chromium, calcium, iron and magnesium.
  2. Pesticides Free – Organic foods are free from pesticides and neurotoxins, elements that have a negative impact on our brain and nerve cells. These toxins are especially harmful to babies and children.
  3. Nature’s Way – Organic foods taste better – just as nature intended. Nothing is added and nothing is taking away, just poor goodness.
  4. The Greener Approach – Organic food is grown naturally (without any herbicides, pesticides, fungicides etc.) making it better for the environment. Organic farming doesn’t pollute the water and helps control soil erosion.
  5. Tested & Trusted – Organic food has been tried and tested for hundreds of years. It is safe and rich in nutrients. Genetically modified produce on the other hand is a new concept; who is to know what the dangers of it really is?
  6. Reduce Cancer Risk – According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 60% of herbicides, 90% of fungicides and 30% of insecticides could cause cancer. Eating organic therefore is a safer option in reducing your risk of developing cancer.
  7. Not harmful to wildlife – Organic farming isn’t harmful to wildlife as no chemicals are used and released into the earth, air or water posing a threat to animals.
  8. Livelihood – Organic farming allow smaller independent farmers to create a livelihood for their families.
  9. Safer for farmers – Organic farming is free of pesticides and other harmful toxins, which means farmers working on organic farms aren’t exposed to these harmful elements.
  10. Pro-biodiversity – Organic food contributes towards biodiversity, which is essential for the future of the planet.

“Switching to all organic food production is the single most critical (and most doable) action we can take right now to stop our climate crisis.” – Maria Rodale
