Improving Your Health Instantly Through Clean Eating
Eating organic food is a great first step to improving your health. At 2 Friends Farm, greens and wheatgrass are certified organic. But why eat organic food?
Organic food simply tastes better. According to a study done by the Organic Center, 43 percent of consumers choose organic food over their conventionally grown counterparts due to better taste. The improved quality of taste is due to the higher concentration of antioxidants found in organically grown foods. These antioxidants improve the food’s color, longevity and health benefits for the eater.
Another health benefit of organically grown produce is the lack of harmful chemicals, like pesticides and fungicides, which are used on crops when food is conventionally grown. These unnatural chemicals may harm your body and are difficult for your digestive system to break down, which can have devastating long term effects on your health. These chemicals can also harm water supplies and degenerate air and soil quality over time. Organic farming uses safe means to enrich soil and natural methods for farming without reliance on these harmful chemicals.
Organic foods are also GMO free. GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organism. Conventional farming often uses GMO seeds, which are used to alter the DNA of their crops, so they can withstand all of those pesticides. All certified organic food, such as the greens we grow here at 2 Friends Farm, is GMO FREE.
Overall, the secret to living healthfully, is a clean diet. Take a step with 2 Friends Farm toward improving your health with our certified organic microgreens and wheatgrass.
