More and more people spend millions of dollars getting treated for various diseases like diabetes without even knowing the key ingredient is all about organic raw foods. Studies show that by consuming uncooked and unprocessed foods helps your body alkalize thereby it is easier to eliminate toxins in the body...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Eating organic could help curb the challenges of diabetes. An organic, raw food diet will save money, time, and even lives in the end.

With the continued popularity and importance of farmers markets around the country, it would seem logical that our government would put in place policies to protect these treasured institutions and the people who supply them the food.

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: As the local market grows, the threat to its existence does too. Big business sees numbers in loosing market share; we see losing health, life, and the basic right to grow and eat local. Take a moment to read to find out how to TAKE ACTION.

Well, I go food shopping A LOT and pretty much only buy whatever I need for the next meal that I’ll be eating. I have the good fortune of being able to do this because an amazing organic market is literally less a one minute walk from my apartment...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Stocking up on a few basics keep an organic kitchen ready to go at all times. Here's the top ten things Max Goldberg of Living Well Maxwell suggests.

 

Organic Living


from Cornucopia

Glyphosate is the active ingredient in one of the most heavily used herbicide in the world: Monsanto’s Roundup. The industry claims that Roundup is quite safe, but authors of a recent article in the scientific journal Entropy reach a very different conclusion...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: “Contrary to the current widely-held misconception that glyphosate is relatively harmless to humans, the available evidence shows that glyphosate may rather be the most important factor in the development of multiple chronic diseases and conditions that have become prevalent in Westernized societies.”  This quote should move us all to the read the following article and understand how deep and profound the poisons that we eat carry through so many foods, so many places we don't even think to look.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Beat the wind, rain, and chilly spring by planting seeds indoors. A head start never hurt.

There are many benefits of organic cooking that you can have and here are a few very important ones:

 

No Additives or Preservatives

First of all, when we hear organic, we automatically think that there are no preservatives. This benefit is exactly that. You will have the health-boosting little to no preservatives, additives or flavorings to your food...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz:  Wondering where to start when cooking organic? A great place to start for launching into organic cooking.

 

Organic Living


 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz:  Coconut oil is great for pets. Plus, they love the taste.

 

Organic Living


from Cornucopia

By exploring exactly how the edible concoctions sold to us as “food” are made, the book sheds light on why we would all be better off eating real food, grown in soil and raised on farms, rather than the creations of food chemists in lab coats that are assembled in factories rather than cooked in kitchens...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Processed foods didn't just "happen," we've bought into it over a process of time. It is time to become educated on how and why we consume what we do. Handing over our health with such confidence to the powers-that-be has lead us to a doomed road of obesity, disease, and unhappiness.

The simplest spring cleaning ideas can be found around the home. Under the sink and in the cupboard are ingredients with the power to clean easily and organically. Here are a few of my favorites:

1. Hydrogen peroxide: Hydrogen peroxide is very inexpensive. Available at any store in the pharmacy and health and beauty section, the bubbling action gets up stuck on grime and sanitizes as it works. Food grade hydrogen peroxide is an even safer, cleaner way to go, though a bit more in cost...

Hydroponics is a technology for growing terrestrial plants with their roots in nutrient solutions (water with dissolved fertilizers) rather than soil. Hydroponic production is not mentioned in the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) of 1990...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Growing with hydroponics does not guarantee an organic food. Consider the following article by The Cornucopia Institute, weighing in on the issue.

 

Organic Living


by Max Goldberg

The nation’s toxic chemical regulatory law, The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976, allows chemicals on the market without meaningful safety assessments and gives the Environmental Protection Agency almost no authority to protect the public health...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: A diet rich in organic food is a must to reduce the exposure to pesticides.
