If You Are What You Eat, Then You May Be Troubled By This…Organic Food
Not too long ago, my editor Colleen brought up a valid point. She wanted to know why I hadn’t covered the organic food versus non-organic food issue. It’s quite simple – I’m not a dietitian nor a food expert. Sure, I know what is good for you and what are healthier options.
So, why would it be so hard for me to present the facts? This is a much bigger issue than one would think and requires a ton of research. Here’s what I do know about organic:
- Grown without the aid of synthetic pesticides
- No food additives – to prolong shelf-life or enhance flavor/appearance
- The growing process is safer on the environment
But, the larger issue we face is paying a greater premium for organic. Frankly, the cost is a huge deterrent when it comes to buying organic, and I don’t want people sacrificing good eats to save a buck. I’d rather have people eat healthy first, then choose organic when the cost is affordable.
