Organic,for a healthier you and a greener earth.Food,Inc-the truth about Food Industry.

Organic refers to the way agricultural products- food and fiber- are grown and processed. It is an ecological system that at its core relies on a healthy rich soil to produce strong plants that resist pests and diseases. Organic farming prohibits the use of toxic and persistent chemicals in favor of more “earth-friendly” practices that work in harmony with nature. In the case of livestock, antibiotics are prohibited, opting instead for preventative measures for keeping animals healthy and productive. Organic production also prohibits the use of genetically modified organisms (GMO’s).

There are many good reasons to eat Organic whenever possible.The availability and higher costs are the common excuses for not buying them more often,but think about it as a good investment that's not just supporting your own good health but also a greener earth.And remember only when we buy organic more often,the demands for Organic food rises ,leading more grocers to stock up on Organic food ultimately promoting Organic farming.

All those yogurt creation look so healthy.I also saw the interview aired last week on Now,wish we had stricter laws controlling such unhealthy fast food chains that are making us sick more than ever.Organic farms are ultimate resources for good health but they definitely need our support to survive.

Such movies are big eye-openers,but the consumer really has to learn to say "NO" to the Junk fast food and make healthier choices.

Thanks for the shout-out..Organic is how our food was always supposed to be,the conventional farming is simply unnatural and against nature.

5 Star Foodie said...

Love Oikos yogurt, your creations here are excellent!

Mediterranean Turkish Cook said...

Yasmeen, this is a great post. I agree on trying to eat organic. I try to get organic produce and meat as much as I can, however sometimes it's inevitable to get conventional food because of limited variety of organic foods. In general, I do not trust the supermarkets on whether they are telling us the truth. The food industry is stronger and it's all about making money rather than taking people's health into consideration. I can't wait to see the documentary.

Bharti said...

Such gorgeous food Yasmeen.Someone was telling me about this movie. The prob is people like u and me already know that stuff, its the people who are unaware who need to see and understand it.
