Organic Food Nutrition - Best Way to Avoid Becoming Overweight

Image :

Ask any expert about the benefits of organic food nutrition, and you'll inevitably get the same answer it's the best way to avoid overweight and enjoy great health in today's heavily industrialized world. Metabolic changes occur without our noticing it; metabolism actually carries the impact of the area we live in, the work place, the air we breathe, the people we come into contact with, the emotions we have and even the forms of entertainment we choose. It may sound far-fetched but pollution takes over our body with every bite we take. The sad but true reality is that non-organic food poisons our system.

The principles of the nutrition will little by little become part of daily life, but this cannot happen unless the awareness level increases. Organic food is food obtained without using any industrialized methods or forms of stimulation such as hormones, pesticides, insecticides, antibiotics or fertilizers. On organic farms, the cattle and the poultry that we take our meat from are not confined to small stables or boxes for their entire lives, and the rest of the crops grow according to the rules of Mother Nature alone, without human artificial interference. Organic food nutrition uses only clean products that provide everything the human body needs to function within optimal parameters, and with a lower risk of illness.

There is a central topic of discussion in magazines, at health workshops, in communities concerned with weight loss, on Internet sites and in television shows. Maybe there is a shift of mentality taking place and, people start to understand better what organic food nutrition implies in terms of health and life changes. Sometimes, it allows no room for the small unhealthy treats like candies, chocolate and ice cream. Well, the truth is that most of the sweet treats we indulge in, are full of chemicals, colorants and additives, however, by organic food nutrition we don't imply a tough renunciation at everything we enjoy.

When we speak about organic food nutrition, we certainly refer to personal choices not to anything compulsory. Strict rules can be formulated but they can only be self-imposed. There is no external authority to tell you that from now on you'll become dedicated to organic food nutrition and give up all the non-organic foods you like. Changing dietary and eating habits is part of personal awareness, individual evolution and it to come naturally. If you truly believe in things done the natural way, then you will no longer crave for something sweet and tasty that in fact pollutes your body instead of feeding.

Organic Food For Our Kids

Image :

Increasingly, we turn our attention not only on the environment in the conventional sense, but also the products that we eat. It is no secret that they contain various additives that adversely affect health. And more recently the notion organic Food appeared. This is food which is grown, collected, processed, packaged in accordance with the eco-standards adopted in Europe in 1991 (different countries use their word: English - organic, Germans and Scandinavians often resort to the notion of Biot, the French-speaking adhere to the concept of Eco).

Let's see what kind of products they are:

* natural;

* environmentally friendly;

* safe for nutrition;

* certified in accordance with the requirements of the European Commission to the of organic food;

* with natural shelf life;

* completely exclude the use of genetically modified organisms, pesticides, fertilizers, antibiotics and growth hormones, various preservatives, antioxidants, flavorings, stabilizers, dyes, taste improvers and other additives artificial origin;

* label of ecoproducts necessarily present any icon of European certification bodies.

So these are foods with a fairly rigid list of requirements. With their growth chemical fertilizers pesticides can not be used to kill pests, grazing is prohibited to process chemicals; animals can not be treated with antibiotics and even keep in cages. It is clear that these products are expensive. But according to recent data, they are bought more and more. Especially for children. Let's look at what organic food is good for kids and why.

Baby puree

Taste of a fruit and vegetable organic puree is richer. The content of nutrients in them is about 30% higher than in conventional products - thanks to gentle handling and cultivation of vegetables and fruits.


Children soluble porridge also contains the largest amount of useful substances. The grains subjected to special treatment and is easy to digest, even for kids.


If a product has eco certificate, its customer can be sure that the rye, for example, didn't grow by the road and didn't gain lead and other harmful impurities. Alternatively, you can be sure that the flour is not bleached and not tinted.

Biscuits and sweets

In the manufacture of children's cookies they do not use sugar. Instead - the agave juice, banana syrup, and sometimes honey. Often such cookies are missing eggs, which is a strong allergen for some children.

Vegetables and fruit

Grown on ecological farms vegetables and fruits are less allergenic. After all, a child sometimes may not be allergic to a product itself, but will be allergic to the chemical compound which is crammed with this product, or processed.

Dried fruits

Did you know that most dried fruit is processed with sulfur dioxide gas by producers to extend their storage? Raw fruits will have shelf life of 6-12 months; processed ones are stored for years. And let the sulfur dioxide is officially allowed, but experts have expressed fears that the substance affects the intestinal micro flora. To determine at a glance whether the fruits are processed is fairly complicated. Dried apricots are the exception, the processed ones are bright, and have golden color, while raw ones, as a rule, are dark. Organic dries fruits, of course, are not processed in any way.


Many babies are allergic to milk. But probably not the milk itself, but to additives, which it contains. Ecoproduct is deprived of these supplements. In addition, bio milk has more amino acids and fats, but lower cholesterol.

Meat, fish, poultry

Animals grown on eco farms, ate only useful fodder containing no chemical additives. That is why such a protein is very useful and contains much more nutrients.

All ecoproducts have similar properties to the products that are eaten by our ancestors. They are delicious, nourishing, and helpful. This is especially important for children, in whose diet one should avoid all the possible preservatives, colorings, flavorings and other chemical additives. Synthetic substances completely knock the work of gustatory receptors and poison the body. Synthetics cannot be a food for the cells, in contrast to natural products. For children it is especially important to eat right, because they are growing, all body systems are being formed. And health of our kids depends on the nutrition totally.

If you live in a country that imports of bananas, to verify the certification of organic food label. The purchase of local banana would be safer especially if you live in rural or rurban.

Banana takes at least three days, depending on the quality of maturity at purchase. Therefore, organic baby food recipe, it can always be served fresh for the children. Use to scrape the baby feeding spoon ripe banana and start ½ tablespoonnew starter for the meal.

The banana is rich in potassium is good for bone development. Supply children with bananas helps the body's ability to calcium, which includes the child in breast milk. Banana also contains vitamins (A, C, folic acid, choline), (calcium potassium, magnesium, phosphorus), minerals, carbohydrates and omega-6 fatty acids.

Go, go, go, avocado!

I had never tried avocado recipe for my children "organic baby food, and when I saw my nephew have eaten pretty, it was a great experience. In fact, the taste and texture is ideal for children. An avocado has more than enough for a week. However, avocado turns brown, if not served immediately. One solution is to incorporate in the avocado family meal. The child eats organic food, then the whole family.

When purchasing avocados to choose different maturity, so that would be a more mature piece of everyday life. Start to serve ½ teaspoon of this> Organic baby food for the meal of the child. Scrape into a small amount, until sufficient for the meal.

The avocado is definitely an organic food because it is produced in large scale basis. Avocado is a complete whole organic baby food around.

And 'rich in fat, but it is good for children.

Baked sweet potato was one of my children organic food favorite recipes. It 's very cheap and plentiful on the market all year round. The variety I like most is the skin red and orange peach pulp. Once cooked, it can be refrigerated for the next feedings. For children, mashed sweet potatoes cooked easily. Serve ½ teaspoon of SolidAppetizers.

As the baby organic food recipes, sweet potatoes cooked with low sodium and low in saturated fat and cholesterol. It 's a good source of fiber, vitamin B6 and manganese, and a good source of vitamin A and vitamin C.

Organic Food Tips - Easy and convenient ways to start with

Image :

When the earth was created billions of years, the process has gone to other creations. The first designs are entirely organic. Herbivores eat plants and organic herbs, while carnivores eat organic meat. Symbiotic cycle continues unhindered. People and animals lived longer, even though the threat seemed endless for survival. In fact, eating organic food was the most normal thing to do, then.

If the economy is gradually subsistingwere commercial, led the large-scale production. To supply the needs of the growing population especially in urban areas has led to crop land is planted to feed the animals for food consumption to be highly controlled environment over long distances has increased this has given birth to commercial agriculture and animal husbandry.

Fruits that grow in the season are now available throughout the year. prosper parasites were applied to new and expensive pesticides in plants. Plantations,Airplanes air to spray these pesticides, thus increasing environmental contamination. In small towns, it was learned that farmers apply fertilizers and inorganic chemicals on the production of "good" yield.

How to obtain animals for breeding and production of doses of injectable antibiotics and other bacterial and viral infections for resistance. They feed on commercial feed products to feed, the inorganic compounds. Take, for example, corn used in feed production. Newgenetically modified crops (GMOs), maize was introduced. These varieties are highly dependent on inorganic chemicals and fertilizers. The chemicals are then passed on to the corn and then the animals that have consumed the product. People are consumed, for pork or chicken, or by-products of these animals such as milk and eggs. A new cycle was performed.

These inputs were found inorganic create new kinds of human diseases. With mortalityincreases and decreases life, concern for organic food has increased in recent decades. Defense Campaign continues to turn with the rise of organic agriculture, certification bodies to create the organic food laws and procedures and environmental and conservation movements.

Easy to organic production. The best and easiest way to know whether what you are eating organic food is a vegetableFamily normally consumes. A small garden has room for different types of herbs and vegetables, the family can provide food daily needs. Spices and herbs can be planted in pots, while the vines may be to cover the fence of the compound. different vegetables can be planted in soil, planting only enough to meet the needs of every type of family. Of course it is always good to give the neighbors in the context of practicing generosity and gratitude.

They compost.Garbage is one of the problems of a growing population. process for biodegradable things the best way is through composting. A simple way is by adding a portion of the yard as an area for composting. Fruit and vegetable peelings and food scraps in the compost Toss and let the earthworms do the work. If there is no back yard and put the worms in a container, which makes the compost out. The question of evacuation is the best soil in earthwormsWorld!

Simple physical control. Some organic foods are not "beautiful". There are flaws that poor quality is the harvest. They are also smaller. deceive Don 't this unpleasant vision may, in the spraying of these signs that the fruit or vegetable has not received pesticide to kill the organisms or "beautify" I am. Many newly introduced varieties are heavily dependent on pesticides and inorganic fertilizers, and do not survive if planted in organicWay. A perfect banana dish, for example, is packaged in plastic bags and sprayed with pesticides on banana to protect against parasites.

For organic food need not be expensive, but will have to go organic and determination. The Company and the human spirit have been programmed to eat unhealthy foods market today. Because this circuit requires discipline and positive thinking. Choose from this and nobody can everis responsible for his choice.

Organic cat food recipes

Image :

As a child I remember stories my mother's family cat, with Uncle Tom in the dark, was the sister who had enjoyed her cat's favorite bird maintained. cat cats and birds along the house, the house = bird in a cage, bird house free = cat out of the screen door, I do not remember any of our dinner on our birds, cats, even if the mother lost parakeets different from the outside forget that their were on their shoulder.

A long preamble, but perhaps when the animals are an integral part of your lifewe tend to treat them like family. So, how to become more aware of how to live, respect for the planet, eat healthy, do not waste food by surely the same applies to animal feed, as our pets. I believe that the principles of a healthy diet for a cat is an organic, holistic. Cats are carnivores - the average number of mice to dispose of it, generally only the liver and intestine, to be honest - our cats are enhanced when they play their firstOf course, in this case, the removal of your mouse down clocks, chests of drawers and heavy the kitchen sink. So if you have a wide range of mice, many problems are solved - Pest fresh meat the first course, especially the bones. But most of the cats have managed to domesticate humans and prefer a varied diet. Trawling through many sites night after night, the basics of a healthy diet for your cat and biological is:

Follow the diet that natureprovided for your meat eater - as far as possible, close the form and composition of nutrients that your cat would eat in a natural environment. The diet that I chose to feed is very simple. Some of the recipes on the Internet quite complicated and expensive to perform any of the food bye the idea that their cat and that's a shame. It should not be so complicated and involved. The diet of a wild cat is quite simple - they eat carcasses of prey whole, often byStomach and intestines back. In nature, your cat would eat a high protein, high moisture, meat-based diet with a moderate level of fat and only about 3-5 percent of their diets from carbohydrates.

Cats are designed to get most of their water with their food, because their normal prey includes about 75 percent water.

Look for a muscle (preferably not an organ like the liver of meat) as the first ingredient. A muscle meat is the "chicken" or"Turkey," etc. Not "chicken byproducts" or "chicken byproduct meal" or "chicken broth" or "liver". "Chicken meal" is technically a muscle, but the term "food", which has been rendered (cooked for a long time at very high temperatures) and of lower quality than meat that has been processed is not as strong. A product "meal" is more common in dry foods. By-products include feet, intestines, feathers, egg shells, etc. and are much less nutritious thanMeat.

Meat from organic sources known

Table scraps treated only as an occasional


Definite No-Nos:

- Alcoholic beverages

- Chocolate

- Coffee

- Grapes and raisins

- Mold or rotten food

- Onions, garlic and chives

- Poultry bones

- Salt and salty foods

- Tomato leaves, stems and unripe fruits

- Yeast dough

Do not forget, however, that cats have different nutritional requirementsThe people so they do not follow these principles, the diet itself.


Posted by Frank & Anne Brown

We felt, lived, loved and bred cats since we were both children. The recent revelations about the horrors of 2007 - 2008 pet food recall has led us to reassess completely, as we have maintained our pets. We now have all of our cats and prepare food. The change of both cats was found dramatic, their health, energy and sheer vitality are changeda lot.

In its simplest form, food, sewage sludge, grown without the use of pesticides, fertilizers, waste water, genetically modified organisms or ionizing radiation. The animals, meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products do not take antibiotics or growth hormones.

The USDA National Organic Programcreated a long and wordy definition that you see here. From October 21, 2002, organic farmers and producers are all required license to comply with these guidelines in their plan:

- Do not use banned substances (see above) for three years before certification and all the license.

- Maintain external access and pasture for livestock and animals do not feed antibiotics or hormones. Rather, the feeding of animals with 100% organic feed.

- AvoidContamination during the manufacturing of products and records of all transactions.

This relatively simple definition is the basis for understanding the organic world. When shopping, it is important to know that the USDA has identified three categories for labeling organic products:

- 100% Organic Ingredients: 100% organic

- Organic: Made with at least 95% organic ingredients

- Made with organicIngredients: Made with a minimum of 70% organic ingredients with strict restrictions on the remaining 30% of genetically modified organisms.

(Less than 70% organic ingredients may list organically produced ingredients for the products of the side wall, can not make organic claims.)

Pesticide hazards

While the idea of organic food can be one of the mostDiscomfort as its value, use the negative impact of pesticides on foods. You can have negative effects on a person's endocrine, nervous and immune systems - and the danger is even greater for children. Remember that pesticides, the use of which is prohibited for organic farmers.

convenient for shopping, using a report of the Working Group of the environmental data from the FDA that many of the health risks of pesticides in a relatively concentratedsmall number of fruits and vegetables.

High pesticide - strawberries, spinach, red and green peppers, cherries, peaches, cantaloupe, celery, apples, apricots, green beans, grapes, cucumbers, pears, potatoes and pumpkin

- Small quantities of pesticides: avocado, corn, onions, sweet potatoes, cabbage, cauliflower and Brussels.

The awareness that the food may contain harmful pesticides, can be scary, but there are ways to clean your food withoutwith fruits and vegetables to swear, always:

- Now commercial products of vegetables and fruit, washed to remove chemical residues (or Evironné Vitanet).

- Make your own cleaning solution with a mild detergent (1 teaspoon of detergent per liter of water.).

- Use a soft brush to scrub food.

- Fruit Peel with their looks harsh, especially peaches, pears and apples.

If you think that the quality of the food does not affect you and your partner fertility think twice! An article on organic food lists and infertility study after study, and the eggs have been conducted on animals and human sperm, showing that organic food has a positive effect on eating.

Here are some of the highlights:

"Human Fertility after the birth of farms has fallen more than 50 years.Average number of sperm in healthy American men dropped by 58 percent between 1938 and 1988. In Europe, the number of sperm decreased by 3.1 percent per year between 1971 and 1990. Studies conducted in Belgium, France and Scotland have also demonstrated the loss of sperm quality, motility, development and the number of normal sperm shape.

The reason for the decline in quality and quantity of sperm is thought to a cocktail of pesticides and hormones in food, some of which can disrupt hormones in the body. SomePesticides were masculinization of females, feminization of males in eggs found in connection led roach testes in UK rivers, the low egg viability, ovarian enlargement and reduced penis size in Florida alligators and female-female pair of birds .

A study published in The Lancet in 1994 found organic farmer workers in the sperm count was much higher than other workers. sperm counts were more than twice as high organic farmers (363 million sperm perMilliliter of semen) in a control group of welders, and printers (164 million per milliliter).

Men who consume organic products and the quality of the semen have sperm taller and bigger eats regularly than men, the parasite treatment. And conventional farmers who do not eat organic foods have a significantly lower percentage of normally shaped sperm. "
