Was your New Year’s Resolution to be healthier, just like ours? Well, you’re just in luck. Today we want to discuss a simple change we can make in our diet that will have long-term benefits. We understand that life can get hectic at times and our health is the last thing on our minds, we’ve been there. Due to this we can end up skipping meals or eating whatever is fastest and easiest at the moment. However, in the long run we know that it’s not convenient for our health. It’s important to remember that simple, basic changes can still make a big impact. It’s all about the small changes, like eating an organic diet. Eating an organic diet is a rather simple yet effective change you can make in your diet and will improve your overall health. We all want to live a healthy lifestyle, yet we don’t want to over complicate our already complicated lives. Now, let’s start off by defining what organic means. According to Merriam Webster, Organic is defined as relating to, yielding, or involving the use of food produced with the use of feed or fertilizer of plant or animal origin without employment of chemically formulated fertilizers, growth stimulants, antibiotics, or pesticides. Basically, organic and non- organic foods are grown differently. Organic food is grown with natural fertilizers. Weeds are controlled naturally rather than with chemical herbicides. Pests are controlled using natural methods rather than with controlled synthetic pesticides. An organic diet is very accessible because organic food can be found in any local grocery store. Below, we have listed the top five benefits of an organic diet.
