Healthy Food Is Our Life Source!

Organic food is a magnificent source of pure vitamins and minerals. We can all benefit by eating as close to nature as possible and avoiding toxic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, genetifcally modified foods (GMO’s),  MSG, artificial sweeteners, and other toxic food coloring and additives that have been proven to cause harmful effects on our health, like neurological damage, malnutrition and cancer.

Fresh Organic Food - More Nutrients!

The health benefits alone are enough to make us want to buy organics, but we still have to consider our budgets.

 

This is a great time of year to think about the possibility of planting an organic backyard garden.  This year will be my fourth year to have an organic garden and what a wonderful experience it has been!


First of all, it was a family affair, and the grandchildren not only were able to plant seeds and plants, but they learned where food actually comes from…does that sound shocking?  Well it is shocking to think we have gotten so far away from nature, that people actually don’t even think about where our food comes from…and more than ever, we need to be teaching our children.


It was worth every ounce of energy and money to see the amazement they had as they watched food grow from the ground.  Now I will have to admit I started out with a great plan, but as so many little hands were in the dirt planting, I finally laughed and thought we’ll just have to see what pops up and where!  As the children have gotten older, we have gotten a little better at sticking to some type of plan, but the joy certainly outweighs the little obstacles.


From that very first summer, they were all planting, picking, washing and eating vegetables, and snacking on beans and cucumbers!  We were eating, juicing or blending the majority of all our vegetables from the garden about six months…think of what a huge savings that is to your food budget and how much healthier it is.


So maybe it’s time to “play in the dirt”…have fun and eat healthy!
