Three years ago I decided to try eating organic foods. In fact, conducting extensive research on the benefits of eating organic foods, pesticide use in foods and the truth about tap water, I've decided to go Natural!!
Going organic can be a bit overwhelming at first, so only make a few changes at a time. The first change that I made was switching to eating Organic Sugar, drinking organic milk and eating organic eggs.
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, Organic food is produced by farmers who emphasize the use of renewable resources and the conservation of soil and water to enhance environmental quality for future generations. Organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones.
Moreover, Organic food is produced without using most conventional pesticides; fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge; bioengineering; or ionizing radiation. For more information on organic food production visit the USDA website.
Trader Joes is a great place to buy organic or natural foods. Their foods contains no preservatives, pesticides and or hormones. Visit www.traderjoes.com for a store near year.
