How to Switch to an Organic Diet

 

Embarking on lifestyle changes can be quite daunting cost wise and otherwise, especially if the aim is to launch yourself into a state of improved living. However, even the most arduous journeys always start with one small step. This means that the road to healthier eating is built more of small victories made of small steps, than of giant strides. These seemingly small steps are what add up to healthier lives.

Switching to an organic diet is one of those lifelong journeys. So, from the first time you forgo mass-produced foodstuff or plant produce treated with pesticides and fertilizers, for organic foods, you are sending strong signals to your subconscious indicating that things are about to change.

Every small shift from industrial feeding to organic chow beings to add up to a better you. Of course, the first few attempts might be challenging, but once you surmount these first few stumbles, the road to healthy choices will only get easier until, at some point, you won’t even have to think about them at all.

So, if you’re thinking of making the switch to untarnished dieting, these few guidelines will prove useful.

Learn about labels

Once you decide to go organic, you should take steps to know what labels to buy. Research about USDA’s [stringent] guidelines for products that are eligible to bear the organic label. Be wary of foods labeled “natural”; those are misleading. Instead, look out for “100% Organic” for foods which are totally organic; “Organic” for 95 foods made of up at least 95% organic ingredients; and “Made with Organic Ingredients” for food products containing about 70% organic ingredients and without any genetically modified organisms.

Inspect your refrigerator

Inspect your fridge and other food storage areas before every grocery shopping trip to be sure there’s enough room for the foodstuffs. Organic food products usually don’t last as long as regular ones, so you have to be ready for more trips to get groceries. A simple trick is to get frozen vegetables and fruits to avoid so many trips.

Purchase hormone-free animal protein

Buying the organic, hormone-free versions of meat and eggs can prove to be one of the costly organic switches. But it’s a cross you’ll have to bear. I ameliorate this by purchasing grass fed beef near me.

Compare prices

Organic dieting is expensive, so you should compare prices of foodstuff at different stores to determine which ones work best for your pocket. Take a look at your favorite grocery shops, and try health food stores as well, as well as other types of food selling stores. I had to compare the prices of farmer’s markets selling grass fed beef near me to decide where I was going to be regularly buying meat from.

Extra tip

The organic varieties of many foods are typically more expensive. So you have to decide if you want to either damn it, forgo it, or buy nonorganic for some of the pricier food items.
