Now You Can Eat Healthy and Organic!
Lately, there seems to be an onslaught of media attention focusing on the correlation between consuming a healthy whole-food based diet and optimal physical and mental health. And this is for good reason! There is overwhelming evidence pointing to the fact that an organic whole-foods based diet leads to better health, increased energy and an overall sense of well-being.
However, though we know that organic foods are of a higher nutritional quality than conventionally produced food, maintaining a diet consisting only of organic foods can be quite a challenge. Perhaps you live in a more rural area and do not have easy access to stores such as Whole Foods Market or Trader Joes. Sure, most local supermarkets and warehouse stores (think Costco and BJs) now have “healthy living” sections, but generally, these aisles have a very limited selection of wholesome products. And even if you do have access to the so-called “health food stores,” organic foods can be expensive!
And let’s not forget about the importance of spending time reading ingredient lists—is it REALLY “all natural”?
After all, nutrition information found on the front of a package is nothing more than a marketing ploy aimed at getting you to reach for the product.
All of a sudden eating healthy seems to be more trouble than it’s worth!
So although it is always best to buy whole organic foods, as hard as you may try, sometimes it just isn’t in your budget, zip code or time allowance. And I know this all too well! Being a working mom and living in a rural area on a self-imposed weekly budget, it is certainly a difficult task to keep my cabinets stocked with the wholesome essentials.
But then I discovered Thrive Market and that was a game changer!
