Can Produce Be Toxic?
How do you choose the right produce at the grocery store? Looking at whether to buy organic or conventional, you should ask if organic produce is healthy.
What exactly is your view of organic and natural foods? For most people, it's completely backwards and over the years, the mindset has changed as to what most believe is truly healthy. When it comes to foods, there is a bit of irony in that the foods not covered in pesticides and are actually grown the way nature intended are the foods labeled differently and separated and not the other way around.
No One Values Food Anymore
Should we be asking the question are healthy foods really healthy? Society is sick and a reason is knowing why are food allergies more common now.
How has society moved away from actually valuing foods for what they can actually do and are meant to do, nourish our body and our brain. It seems the trend has been heading to making food our enemy, so to speak. Foods sitting on the shelf are no longer nurturing and healing.
Is there an absolute best way to grocery shop for healthy foods? There is when you focus on the produce section for your nutrition.
Finding new ways to grocery shop is to better understand what is important, like the difference between food pyramid and myplate. Taking a step back and objectively looking at these guidelines can show you how to be more conscious of nutrition. In this podcast episode, I share my thoughts on why you should change the way you shop and spend your nutrition dollars on produce.
