WHAT FOOD SHOULD I HAVE IN MY HOME ON A REGULAR BASIS TO MAKE
OPTIMAL CHOICES FOR MY HEALTH AND WELLNESS?
Looking and feeling healthy is created by a lifestyle you design for yourself to achieve your well being. It is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices ...
Organic if you can - Our world is becoming more and more tainted with dangerous chemicals. In an attempt to increase production and capture bigger market shares, the use of fertilizers, pesticides, food additives; such as dyes and preservatives has become so prevalent that "artificial ingredients" are now outnumbering "natural ingredients" on many food content labels.
It is the opinion of many experts that this ever-increasing use of artificial fertilizers, pesticides, and chemical additives has a direct correlation to the ominous rise in cancer rates and other health problems.
Organic foods are rapidly becoming recognized as a logical alternative in this chemical-laden world. The focus on environmentally-sound agricultural methods and "sustainable" agriculture is getting the attention of many who are now concerned about what they're eating as well as the environment. Organic food is a reliable and safe alternative to the issues regarding conventionally grown, processed, and packaged foods.
