Going Organic has Never Made More Sense than Now!

Eating and Living an organic lifestyle is becoming more and more popular…

Chances are, if you have been thinking about going organic, you likely have some questions you want answered before making a commitment.

What does organic really mean?

How can it benefit you?

And can it really be done on a budget?

Well, I’ve enlisted a special guest for our site here and her name is Laura Brookton. She has had a long time interest in organics and over the years has become very knowledgeable on the topic. She is not only interested in organic eating, but anything that relates to organic living, from inside to outside the house in the garden, including growing organic produce at home.

She’ll be here for the next little while sharing great advice and tidbits, so I’ll let her introduce herself…

Hi, I’m Laura. I’ve been studying organic living since the USDA introduced national standards in 2002 and my family has been eating fully organic since about 2006. This subject means a lot to me because I want my family to have the healthiest meals possible. A few other related subjects that I feel are important are our nation’s health, our wildlife and the sustainability of food production.

Even though certified organics have been around for a decade, I know there are still a lot of questions surrounding organic food. That’s why I am so happy to be here to talk about many of those concerns people have.

Here’s what you can expect in the next few posts:

– Why eating organic is important…to you and the world around you.
– How to introduce organics, even if you’re on a budget.
– What does organic really mean and are you really eating organic?
– We’ll also discuss issues surrounding, meats, and produce in more detail.
– Being your own source of organic foods.
– Do you need supplements?

We’re going to cover a lot, but remember, as you start consider the organic lifestyle; you don’t have to do this all at once. Just take it one step at a time adding healthier options slowly and keeping this great earth of ours in harmony.

So, stay tuned for the next issue in the series and I hope you enjoy the ride. Please make a comment and share your own experiences, that is always welcome.

I look forward to sharing with you over the coming weeks.

Laura
