Non-GMO, Organic?

Updated: Dec 6, 2019

Do you ever go to the store and get confused about all the fancy labels? ๐Ÿง We see things like "no high fructose corn syrup", "organic", "non-gmo", "grass-fed" etc. Sometimes it's hard to keep track of what it all means! ๐Ÿคท Let me tell you a little bit about why I encourage eating organic and non-gmo food as often as you can. ๐Ÿ“ GMO's are genetically modified foods. Scientists can take the genes of a plant and change them to become more disease resistant or to produce more fruit. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ This is great in areas of the world where there is a lack of food. But, changing the genetic makeup of our food makes it more difficult for our bodies to digest properly. ๐Ÿฆ  There are also unknown risks to introducing different genes into a food. Because of this, it's better if we can avoid genetically modified food! ๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ Another common label found is "organic". Organic just means that there were no chemicals like pesticides or herbicides sprayed onto the crops while they were growing. ๐Ÿงช For meat, it means that the animals ate foods that weren't treated with chemicals. ๐ŸŒพ It's been found that the chemicals sprayed onto crops can cause free-radical and toxin buildup in our bodies. โš ๏ธ This can cause us a lot of health issues! While I encourage healthy eating, organic, and non-gmo food, I also encourage balance. โš–๏ธ Eat as healthy as you can, but don't feel guilty for eating a treat or having a pizza night ๐Ÿ• if you need it! I believe that we should be more focused on the kind of person we are becoming instead of thinking about every little thing that we eat! ๐Ÿ˜‰
