What did you have for breakfast this morning? If it wasn’t comprised of certified Organic food, perhaps it’s time to re-vamp your grocery list.
Now I know eating organic is a huge movement right now and I don’t want to sound like I’m beating a dead horse, but I’ve totally hopped on the organic train and I’d like to tell you why.
It’s mostly because I watched this simple YouTube video of a little girl and her science project.
The girl is actually super adorable, so that’s a reason in itself to watch it.
But despite the cuteness, this little lady’s simple experiment really demonstrates how much pesticides, chemicals and just the makeup of the soil can affect the food that we eat.
Of course, do more research on it. I’m not saying that you should eat a certain way based off of what you learned from one video or one article. And perhaps you’re hesitant to buy something that’s certified organic because it’s more expensive or because it’s sometimes the opposite of being locally grown.
For example, the last time my boyfriend and I went grocery shopping together, he asked, “how does it make sense to buy something that’s organic, but was flown here from France, instead of something that was grown on the same continent?”
I had no idea how to answer him. Obviously, it’s much better to eat food that’s more fresh because it’s spent less time traveling.
But then I saw the video below, and it all made a bit more sense. Just be sure to crank up the volume; it’s a little quiet.
If you agree or disagree with the whole organic food movement, let me know! Let’s have a discussion about it and decide whether it is or isn’t worth everyone’s time and money.
Until next week, stay fabulous. xo
