One of the hardest adjustments most people have to make with regards to living an organic lifestyle is in regards to their eating habits. With life on the run from work, school, family, play, (and more work) people just don’t take the time to eat healthily. All though it does take a little extra time the key is not so much in tons of extra time spent as it is in thinking ahead, so you’re not picking up fast food at the last second.

It is a perfect time to change that. Grab yourself a little lunchbox/cooler and start thinking ahead. Don’t get stuck in line at the nearest fast food place spending your money on grease when you can nourish your body with delicious home made food. If you think ahead and make a sandwich made with whole grain bread or grilled chicken salad you can add these to your lunchbox along with some organic snacks (preferably not loaded with sugar).

Superfoods – What They Are and Their Benefits

shutterstock_239014750

Superfoods, by my definition, are foods that can offer superior nourishment in a natural form. This is nutrition as it is created by nature, and so generally includes foods that are wild harvested or untampered with genetically.

Many of the foods that are in our supermarkets are from commercially grown crops that over decades of selective breeding or genetic modification, have had much of their nutrition bread out of them in favour of preferences in tastes, farming efficiencies and yields. This practice has potentially caused many of the beneficial phytochemicals in our foods to be lost.

Superfoods, on the other hand, are quite often new to the food industry, and are not available on a wide scale. I would include in this category foods such as acai, camu camu, maqui, sacha inchi, graviola, cupuacu, lucuma, mesquite and chia seeds. Many of these foods were widely unknown by most of the world even as little as a decade ago, although venerated by the local populations where these foods are naturally occurring.

Finding a good supplement can be tricky. Supplements, in general, are often loaded down with all sorts of additives and chemicals that the human body simply doesn’t need. The practice of placing additives into supplements is very widespread. The supplement business is a multi-billion dollar a year business. The market is flooded with players and different supplements. As a result, it is easy to get confused about what to take, how much and why.

When looking for a supplement, it is important to keep an eye out for any supplement that will improve your overall health. Low-grade supplements may have the advantage of being inexpensive.
