What Are The Top Organic Food Choices?
When you’re doing research on healthy food choices and reading about what kind of changes you should make to your diet it seems like everyone always seems to repeat the mantra of going organic; so what are the top organic food choices?
Organic fruits and vegetables are a fantastic and healthy choice, but if you’ve ever been to the grocery store you probably know that the prices of organic foods compared to their non-organic counterparts is hugely inflated due to the effort that goes into producing them.
Of course you want to do the best you can for your health and body but you don’t want to drain your bank accounts, but which do you pick when deciding on organic foods?
Here’s some of the better choices for organic foods to look out for.
Beef – When you think of organic foods it’s common to think of fruits and veggies, but organic meats are also an option.
Beef in particular is a high priority choice if you’re only making a limited selection of organic substitutions. With organic beef you avoid the hormones given to cattle (many of which have been linked various cancers) alongside the veritable buffet of antibiotics commercial beef cattle are pumped full of, making organic beef an obvious choice for healthy eaters.
Milk – Speaking of cows, it’s not just their meat that you should be careful of ingesting. The hormones given to dairy cows (specifically rBST and rBGH) that get passed on to you through dairy products like milk can in turn raise other hormone levels which are linked to, you guessed it, cancer.
Beef and milk are both excellent candidates for organic substitutions in your diet simply because of the potential health risks from their commercial counterparts.
Strawberries – If you love fresh fruit like I do, then you’re probably anxiously waiting every year for strawberries to come back into season. These delicious little red superfoods are normally great for your health, but not if they’re covered in dangerous chemicals and pesticides. Their unique shape and texture isn’t just eye-catching, the little seed bumps on the outside of the fruit provides endless nooks and crannies for pesticides used in commercial growing to hide and avoid washing.[bottom_ads id=”2397″]
Of course this isn’t a worry with their organic counterparts, but is that really a risk you’re willing to take with your food and health?
It would be nice to go organic with all of our foods, but it’s just not economically feasible for the average person to spend that much on replacing everything they eat with organic food.
