Of all possible ways to maintain wellness the most effective and enduring is to buy fresh food and prepare it at home.
Many a working man in tough dirty industry has lived a long and productive life without significant medical interventions because he ate home cooking from fresh bought food.
Home cooking costs less in time and money than purchasing restaurant or take away food – which is often microwaved, bulk purchased cheap with numerous flavours added and cannot contain healthful oils.
Fresh food is easy to find and affordable, but are organics worth the premium price or extra shopping time?
Many articles and reports have stated there’s little difference between conventionally grown food and organics, that the vitamin and mineral content are similar.
This may be effectively disputed.
Value of Organic Food
The nutritional value of plant foods is much more than the vitamins and minerals – there are the many phytochemicals. For example the flavonols, anthocyanins and allicin in onions; quantities present being orders of magnitude larger in organics.
The obvious advantage of organics is lack of poisons – pesticides and herbicides. We’re exposed to a vast array of complex toxins and the less of them the better.
Another significant aspect of wellness is the electrical potential of our cell membranes. Which has everything to do with the flow of blood and lymph, and the functionality of cell membranes. Food is a powerful factor and this electrical potential comes from living soil.
Rich healthy soil with a diverse microflora fed by organic mineral fertilizer provides fundamentally different crops than conventional crops with chemical input (such as hydroponics, most salad vegies available in supermarkets).
Eating organics is usually worth the extra cost.
Grow something at home, buy as much as you can afford, especially of fresh vegetables. Home delivery services may be available too.
Enjoy the deeper sense of wellness. Enjoy the food.
