    Organic = Healthy?

    Raw Fruit And Vegetable Diet

    After finishing the Master Cleanser, I have changed my diet to 95% organic, hoping to transition to 100% within the next couple of years.  Organic food is more flavorful than processed food, very colorful, and nutrious.  You would not believe how soft my skin is...

    Organic Foods

    I don't usually eat organic food.  I may buy something organic once in a while.  I don't know if this is true or not, I heard if someone has cholesterol, organic foods can help.

    Local Organics.

    I try to eat organic and local foods. I am lucky to live near a local organic farm and they provide a lot of the food I eat. They have 24 chickens, and I can get a couple eggs a week. All summer I get a half a portion of the produce from the farm, and love it. Also I would...

    Why Organic Is Best

    My life history in health is too long for here, but it all comes down to simple basics: God created everything perfect. Any change is a defect. It took me 60 years to gradually go from a usually sick child (who took drugs prescribed by medical doctors) to never get sick again...

    Organic Really Rocks

    I find that organic food rocks (and I don't use that term, but fo this, yes). Flavor--the flavor is always more robust and savory Freshness--the poducts last longer and are juicier Ripeness--this stuff is actually ripe enough to get some of those all important enzymes (no chalky...

    At Least I Try To, Mostly

    I made the switch to Organic Eggs and Milk mostly because of my vegetarianism and the belief that if I won't eat a chicken because of how it's raised, I shouldn't eat the eggs of that chicken.  So I eat organic free-range eggs and organic milk. (Milk based on the same...

    I Will Not Eat GMO Foods

    I feel that genetic tampering is irresponsible, and genetic tampering with our food is wrong! We pay extra and are diligent to find organic whole foods. Feed your family, don't feed the corporate beast!

    All food is "organic" - yes, even Twinkies. Take a freshman biology class for goodness sake. Some money grubbing advertising executives have tried to re-define the word and a bunch or fools have gone along with it. Please stop falling for the hype and think. Arrrgggghhhh...
