10 Organic Living and Eating Tips

Organic Living and Eating Tips

Fruits and vegetables for healthy eating

  1. “Organically made” is not the same as “Organic.” “Freely Traded” is not the same as “Free Trade.” Those former foods aren’t certified.
  2. Avoid cheap vegetable oils at all costs. They’re high in Omega-6 and very unhealthy.
  3. Most fruits have quite a high glycemic index. The exception are berries (including strawberries) which are low GI and very healthy.
  4. Think you can’t afford organic? Buy foods that are in season. It’s both more inexpensive and healthier.
  5. Have a favorite seasonal food? Buy it when it’s in season, then freeze it. It’s healthier than buying it out of season.
  6. Avoid large fish like tuna. Large fish eat small fish and build up higher concentrations of mercury.
  7. Look up and remember when your local farmer’s markets are. They’re cheaper, and you can ask directly about how the food was grown.
  8. Buy green cleaning products to avoid chemicals like ammonia or chlorine in your house.
  9. Carrots, beets and radishes are very easy to grow. If you want to give growing a shot, that’s a good place to start.
  10. Try to eat as much of your produce raw as possible. Cooking destroys enzymes and can reduce vitamin content by 12x.
