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