It seems organic raw foods are going mainstream. You can now go to your local grocery store and purchase from a nice selection of organic fruits and vegetables however how do we know where these foods have come from? This may or may not be a problem but I feel most of us would prefer to know where the food was farmed and if its locally grown. This is another reason why we enjoy our community
The arrival of Spring, and the rising popularity of eating raw organic whole foods has sprouted a rise in local food markets. Local farmers will be selling their fruits and vegetables right at the stands. When you stop and talk with each farmer they will tell you exactly where and how they produce this wonderful food. Now their produce may not have the “organic” seal but when talking to them we have learned in most cases that its grown the same but they don’t go through the additional expense and process of being certified organic. I personally think this is the best food you can buy. It cost less, is greener and supports your community.
So this weekend visit your local farmers market for in-season fresh organic foods and let us know what you think.
Happy Earth Day from all of us at Bad Beat on Hunger.
Superfoods or Convenience?
I’ll Take Both
We are noticing a trend where many of us with our busy schedules tend to eat on the go. And do we know what ingredients are really in these fast foods? And worse, what is this fast food doing to our mind and body? Most of us know the answers and we can see and feel it’s effect on our body.
It is so much easier to drive through a window at McDonald’s instead of taking the time to prepare a healthy whole food meal. We are eating but not real food. Most of us and especially our children are eating more processed food then ever before (Man made-not nature made). We all know its better to eat healthy but we don’t. So why do we eat processed foods that we know are not good for us? The answer is simple, we do this for convenience. Its takes more time to create a healthy dish that tastes good and is full of the nutrients our body needs. Its seems so much easier to simply toss frozen chicken nuggets into the oven or throw on some mac and cheese while we snack on potato chips instead of taking the time to prepare a whole food, highly nutritious meal.

“Day 37 of my Raw Promise. It’s been simple to follow and I have fallen in love with the lifestyle of raw foods. I feel amazing, have lost an inch on the waist, a few pounds and sleeping like an angel. The deep, uninterrupted sleep and mental clarity is probably the most noticeable impact. LOVE it!!”
