Tuesday's Tip

Pay attention to what goes into your body.

You are what you eat. Seriously. The "health craze" has been going on for awhile now and has people making healthier choices, but... and yes, there is a "but" here... due to high demand for fruit and vegetables, many farmers have had to resort to using a cocktail of pesticides to control disease and insect attack. This is good news for their bank balances  but not good news for your health. Seems like it might be time to be informed of the advantages of organic food.

Did you know that if you consumed an average apple you would be eating over 30 pesticides, even after you have washed it? Sadly, the quality of food produced has gone down over the last 40-50 years. The fruit your grandparents consumed as children contained more nutrients, vitamins and minerals.

Trust me, once you try some organic produce and taste an apple the way it should be, and perhaps how you recall it tasting in your youth, you will never go back to mass produced fruit again.

Here are some of the many differences between organic and conventional foods:

If you think about it, how can it be okay for you to eat chemicals and not expect some form of reaction in your body? Our bodies are wonderful machines but are also delicately balanced. Any form of foreign chemical is bound to cause irritation, at the very least. All I ask is that you do a little research about what is going into your body and make an educated decision. For those who don't have time or patience for research, just look for the USDA Organic seal. Those items are required by law to be at least 95% organic.

So, what is making up YOUR body right now?
