Welcome to Organic!

The goal of  eating organic foods is to promote health and productivity of  communities of soil life, plants, animals, and people.

Livestock must have access to the outdoors, fresh air, water, sunshine, grass and pasture, and are fed 100% organic feed. They must not be given or fed hormones, antibiotics or other animal drugs in their feed. If an animal gets sick and needs antibiotics, they cannot be considered organic. Feeding of animal parts of any kind to ruminants that, by nature, eat a vegetarian diet, is also prohibited. Thus, no animal byproducts of any sort are incorporated in organic feed at any time.

About a year ago, my husband and I moved to the Midwest, where many changes were taking place for us.  Among all this change, we considered making it the best for everyone included.  It sounds abrupt, but in one instance we found our selves eating Doritos, Twinkies, Oreos , and the next… watching “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution”.    That show changed our entire way of thinking.. to school lunches, bagged lunches, all the preservatives and on top of all that, the sugar we were putting into our bodies and our kids.  Now I must say, this isn’t a choice for everyone, and I certainly don’t want to tell anyone how to feed their families, but this changed our lives, for the better.

We tried one of Jamie Oliver’s recipes : http://www.jamieoliver.com/us/recipes/chicken-recipes/roast-chicken-with-lemon-rosemary-ro_1

After this dish, I was hooked.  Now, after a year, I can say we are pretty much 100& organic. I say pretty much, because there is that occasional “slip” of fast food ( which we will go into later).

My point is, eating organic doesn’t mean you have to eat everything organic, all the time, but if you are going to do it, I can point you in an easy direction.

I hope to talk to you, and I welcome any advice.
