Are you one of the many people who are getting great results from eating clean?
It doesn’t matter if your clean eating diet is super strict or even if its pretty loose – you are probably like most of us who like the idea of eating clean. We relish the life energy we get from it.
The feeling of shining inner and outer health that we get from avoiding food additives soon gets us thinking about stepping up the power.
It’s much the same with anything we love doing, isn’t it?
We want more of it and we want to know more about it. That’s how it is with me, anyway.
And the more I read, the more it strikes me how hard it is to avoid cooking and feeding your family on contaminated food… unless you grow it yourself so you can make sure it is growing in clean earth and free of chemicals and other environmental contaminants. And never comes into contact with plastics!
But who has the time, skill and space to be able to do that with all the food you eat? Not me.
So, it’s not long before we start thinking about buying organically grown food. Uncontaminated and more nutritious, right?
Well, it turns out that switching over to organic clean eating because of its greater nutritional russian grocery value may be a mistake. A mistake you should think about.
Many of my friends want to know about organic foods and clean eating; they want to know if I think it is essential for an authentic diet of eating clean.
They are already avoiding processed foods so why organics for eating clean? You may be exactly like my friends – super wary of anything that might be irradiated or treated to extend shelf-life. They buy fresh local produce but it is that enough… or too much?
Should we all be switching our clean eating over to organic-only?
The Surprising Facts About Organic Food and Clean Eating
Most people seem to accept that organic is better for you than food that is grown using modern farming techniques, but why is that so widely believed?
What does organic actually mean?
If that’s something you’ve been wondering about, maybe it’s time to have a close look at the story behind the image of organic food.
Some of us probably buy organic without knowing the difference between organic food and “regular” food. There’s no real problem doing that if you are doing it simply to look after your health, but there’s a subtle risk when you don’t have a stronger reason for doing it.
The Downside of Eating Organic
You may be surprised when I tell you there is a downside to buying organic. And it’s not price.
Unless your decision to buy organic food is based on sound principles, your commitment and resolve will both fade. And that’s particularly true if you are only doing so because you think organic food is somehow healthier than other food.
After a little while you are likely to tire of paying a premium for organic – especially when you don’t have a strong understanding of exactly why you are doing it.
Without that strong knowledge of the benefits of organic, you run the risk of mindlessly switching back to mass-farmed foods.
And if you think the benefit of organic is all about nutrition, you’re mistaken.
There’s been no scientific evidence that shows organic foods are more nutritious than non-organic. No, the big “why” revolves around a significant negative.
That negative is simply the fact that traditionally-farmed foods harm our bodies. But don’t worry… I’m going to give you some great tips that will save you money, help you avoid food dangers and improve your health and well being.
