Keeping Healthy Snacks on Hand

Snacking clean.

People have a tendency to eat when they’re bored, and the easiest thing to munch on are those things that are easiest to grab-and-go, such as chips and cookies. Now, if you’re serious about eating healthier, you’ll try to limit junk food in your home.

Of course we eat chips and I bake cookies. However the trick is to bring in an abundance of easy-to-snack-on fruits. For example, we drove to Whole Foods this weekend and brought home some bananas, mandarines, celery, grapes, etc. So guess what we’ve been eating (in addition to the cookies I just made)? It’s such an easy solution to watching what you eat!

Also, if you’re interested, consider getting something like this to wash your fruits and veggies. It’s a neat alternative, and it makes me feel better to use this in addition to my yucky city water, which I try to avoid using as much as possible.

Organically Healthy

Organic Foods.

I just want to get this topic out there right at the beginning of my blog. Ā I know at some point this may cause a disruption among people, but I hope that the majority of my followers opt for a healthier lifestyle.

Now, I know there are some major skeptics out there who say that there is nothing wrong with the food that is available to us now and that those who eat organically are the modern hippies of the world. Well, I think if that person would take the time to research what exactly is in their conventially-processed foods, they’d get theĀ heebie-jeebies. At least, I’d hope they would.

Organically grown foods are healthier. They are is closer to what nature intended for our bodies to ingest. Less life is less harmed with organics. Take tomatoes for example; By not putting those harsh chemicals/pesticides on them, you allow the plant to flourish naturally. At the same time, you will not harm any animals that may come to feed on them, while still maintaining a healthy product for humans to eat. Tastier, too! The same goes for chickens and cows. Not pumping our meat full of steroids, we are able to take in the natural nutrients that is intended. I’ve even found some news articles to help prove that point from theĀ Huffington PostĀ andĀ NBC News. You’ll see, especially in the HuffPost one, that processed foods is a whole other topic. You should never eat anything that is incredibly over-processed. I’ll go into that at another time though, along with the topic of buying locally.

Well, I feel like I’ll be addressing this again at some point. Thanks loves!
