Six Great Tips to Help Transition to Organic
Organic food is becoming ever more popular as people are exposed to more information about how food production affects our overall health. In addition to being free of synthetic chemicals, studies have shown organic products to be nutritionally superior to conventionally grown produce. But the switch to organics can be difficult at first.
GoForChange.com has six top tips for going organic that will help you to live more healthily and keep your food bills down, too:
- Your local farmers’ markets can be a great source of organic produce that is also cost effective.
- Food becomes more expensive to obtain when it is not in season, so choose seasonal foods whenever possible.
- Always check your favourite organic food websites for coupons and special offers.
- Some foods have greater levels of pesticides than others. If you can’t afford to go 100% organic, check the annual list of foods containing the most pesticides and start by choosing organic in these cases.
- If you have the room, have a go at growing your own organic produce. In addition to saving you money, this will ensure you know exactly where your food has come from. And food you grow yourself always tastes best!
- Make more meals at home rather than eating out. This way, you’ll know what is going into your food and can ensure that organic ingredients are used.
