Health means making choices and establishing a balance in all aspects of your life. It means saying no to harsh chemicals & artificial additives when possible. It means demanding better options and higher standards from producers. It means commanding respect for your whole self- your body, mind & spirit as well as respect for workers, our land and its inhabitants.
On Food: Choosing what to eat and what not to eat can be very intimidating. Learning to read labels can be confusing, time consuming and another part-time job- that is, until you get the hang of it.
A few Pro-tips to start eating just a little cleaner & more sustainably: -Shopping the perimeter of the supermarket cuts out a lot of questions in regards to "what's in this?". Shop for whole food ingredients: if it grows from the ground, it is probably sound!
-"Organic food can be pricey. And do I have to?" This is very much a personal choice on a scale of what is important to you. There is no denying simply that organically grown food, as well as non-gmo foods (genetically modified) are better for you- who wants to eat strange chemicals? My pro-tip for you is to seek out your local farm or farmer's market for produce, meat, cheese, breads and really anything you possible can! More times that not, the farm has organic practices and measure in place. The reason why they will not "say" that they are "organic" is because they probably can not afford the money for the label. Being a small farm, it takes at least 5 years as well as thousands upon thousands and then some to get that labeling. Which then means, they will have to mark up their prices to make up for it. One other small consideration here is that shopping directly from the farmer cuts out the middle man & reduces emissions on traveling- for you and your food!
