Maybe you have read about my “3 Pillars Of Health,” our body’s way of continually detoxing and nourishing itself. When we eat “green,” we nourish our body with what it needs; minus the harmful pesticides, additives, dyes, hormones, antibiotics and GMOs.
Please have a look around! It is so important to know where our food comes from, how to choose the most nourishing foods, and which foods to stay away from the best we can.
Can you just imagine a life full of vitality, for yourself and your children? The answer is “YES!”
Organic vs Conventional
I get often asked if organic is truly better for you than conventional. Hopefully I’ll answer a few of your own questions here.
The Dirty Dozen/Clean 15
Each year the folks at the Environmental Working Group (EWG) release this information to better serve our community. I just love them, and I hope you will check them out!
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
Aghhhhhh, this section is loaded with information. Did you know that most of the world’s seed for growing crops is owned by chemical companies like Dow? I know, right… I think it’s crazy, too!!!… Educated yourself here. There are many studies now linking GMOs to chronic disease. I urge you to remove GMOs from your diet immediately, and this resource will help you with that!
Who is Monsanto?
Well, Monsanto is the company responsible for this “new food revolution” of genetically modifying the foods we and our animal counterparts eat. Monsanto is also the maker of Agent Orange, RoundUp, aspartame, the list goes on… Have a look for yourself in this section.
Many food dyes have been banned in other countries because they pose health risks. The United States is behind the 8 ball in this department, so take a look at which dyes cause what disease, (studies) included.
Don’t you want to know what chemicals are in your food? I sure do, and for the health of your children, this is a great section to pay close attention to.
Pesticides and More
Pesticides are everywhere now; causing cancer, birth defects, most likely autism. I have resources here for you to learn about pesticides, the harm they produce, and other ways to get around having to use them.
Grow Your Own
This is just my personal experience about how I was able to start growing my own herbs, fruits, and vegetables… even though I don’t particularly have a “green thumb!” Enjoy 🙂
