Eating Healthy for your Health
A healthy diet is one of the most important ways you can maintain an active lifestyle and protect against health problems. Healthy eating increases energy, improves the way your body functions, strengthens your immune system and thwarts weight gain.

A healthy diet helps you:

Meet your nutritional needs. A varied, balanced diet provides the nutrients you need to avoid nutritional deficiencies. Non-nutrients, such as fiber, are also necessary to a healthy diet.
Prevent and treat certain diseases. Healthful eating can prevent the risk of developing certain diseases such as cancer and heart disease. It is also helpful in treating diabetes and high blood pressure. Following a special diet can reduce symptoms, and may help you better manage an illness or condition.
Enjoy life. Food is the mainstay of many social and cultural events. Not only does it provide nutrition, it helps facilitate connections between people. Cooking fresh, healthy meals can also be an enjoyable way to spend time, either on your own or with others.
Feel energetic and manage your weight. A healthy diet can help you feel better, provide you with more energy, and help you fight stress.

Reasons to Buy Organic Foods

   Organic products meet stringent standards
   Organic food tastes great!
   Organic production reduces health risks
   Organic farms respect our water resources
   Organic farmers build healthy soil
   Organic farmers work in harmony with nature
   Organic producers strive to preserve diversity
   Organic farming helps keep rural communities healthy

Organic produce is not covered in poisonous chemicals. The average conventionally-grown apple has 20-30 artificial poisons on its skin, even after rinsing.
Fresh organic produce contains on average 50% more vitamins, minerals, enzymes and other micro-nutrients than intensively farmed produce.
Going organic is the only practical way to avoid eating genetically modified (GM) food.
If you eat dairy or meat products, going organic has never been more important to safeguard you and your family's health. Intensively-reared dairy cows and farm animals are fed a dangerous cocktail of anti-biotics, growth promoting drugs, anti-parasite drugs and many other medicines on a daily basis, whether they have an illness or not. These drugs are passed directly onto the consumers of their dairy produce or meat.


Are you tired of your job? Ever thought about going back to school in your spare time to further your career?
