Living the green life requires a little more than wearing eco-friendly clothing, buying green cleaning products or getting your renewable energy through places like Texas electricity providers – you also have to eat green, too. Whatever arguments you can drum up against the thought of changing your diet to organic fall short when compared to the exponential benefits of an organic diet – benefits not just for you but the environment as well. And don’t go thinking that going organic means you have to give up meat.
When applied to meat, organic usually means a number of things but the most common aspect is the humane treatment of these living creatures before they are butchered. It might sound like propaganda, but organic meat harvested from creatures treated humanely is often healthier and free from whatever drugs or hormones that are fed to the creature. The same applies to organic fruits and vegetables too. When you take pesticides out of the equation you get healthier and fresher produce and that’s better for everyone.
And while the biggest argument against organic food might be the overall cost, you have to make a choice – do you pay a little more up front for healthier food or do you pay a lot later when your health finally catches up with you?
