First off organic food is more natural, and contains the vitamins and nutrients our bodies need. I found before we started eating organic that even after I ate I was still hungry, or was I? No, I wasn't hungry for food, but for the vitamins, and nutrients our food no longer contains. Since I have started eating more organic foods I am no longer feeling like I need to eat all day. As a matter of fact the whole family is experiencing this.
Secondly because organic foods contain the vitamins and nutrients our bodies need we don't need to eat as much. I used to allow the boys one bag of chips a month, they would last a couple of days and be gone. We have started buying rice chips from the local health store, and they are lasting a longer time. I also want to mention that the bag is smaller than one we used to buy. My 16 year old, who has had a hard time with the changes, loves them and commented on how he likes them better because not only do they taste good they fill him up.
I had the same problem with mayonnaise, and very little of it, I mean I love egg salad, deviled eggs, and other dishes that are made with mayonnaise, but really had to limit my self. Now with the organic mayonnaise I don't have dread what it will do to my body because it does nothing but nurture it now.
One last point to make, my husband drives a truck three days a week for 12 1/2 hours. He used to take a granola bar, and crackers with him, one day he stopped in the health store for some snacks instead. Turns out he was full faster, and did not get hungry for a longer period of time.
In conclusion buying organic may cost more, but you don't eat as much, so are you really spending more? I don't think so, here are some of the organic products we have been eating and love.
Lundberg Rice Chips wheat and gluten free my husband loves the sea salt, while my 16 year old prefers the sesame & seaweed, and I use the Santa Fe barbecue in my taco salad replacing the Doritos Nacho Cheese.
Ezekiel 4:9 Cinnamon Raisin bread from Food for Life100% whole grain bread, low glycemic, and complete protein. Be aware that this bread is pricy, we paid just over $7 for a loaf, but I will buy it again.
Spectrum Organic Mayonnaise from Spectrum Organic Products made with cage free eggs gluten free, other types of mayonnaise also available.
There is also an organic mix my husband loves for energy, but it is all gone, and health store was all out. So, these are some of the organic products we are buying and love.
Yes!!!! Organic foods are worth the price for our health.
Do you have a favorite organic food? I would love to hear about it.
