Organic Veggies is the latest trend. Everybody is choosing an organic and natural way of life. Most people have heard about organic food but why it is exactly considered to be healthy is still unknown to many.
Firstly, the term "organic" refers to the process of how certain foods are produced. Organic foods are grown or farmed without the use of artificial chemicals, hormones, antibiotics or pesticides. According to research, herbs, fruits, and vegetables that are produced naturally i.e. in the absence of pesticides and fertilizers are more healthy than conventionally grown crops. Pesticides and chemicals which are used to boost the production might cause a number of diseases. Some studies have linked pesticides in our food to everything from headaches to cancer to birth defects.
Naturally grown fruits and vegetables are fresher and are richer in nutrients. Organically grown foods have more vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and micronutrients than commercially grown foods because the soil is nourished with sustainable farming practices. On average, organically grown foods provide 21% more iron, 27% more vitamin C, 29% more magnesium and 13% more phosphorus than fruits and vegetables grown conventionally. Not just that, naturally grown vegetables taste better because the soil used is well nourished and free of any artificial chemicals.
The best way to get healthy and naturally produced vegetables and herbs are simple to grow them yourself. It is not only just healthy it is also economical. Colors and preservatives are often added to make them appear 'fresh' and 'new'. Most store-bought vegetables can’t match the flavor of home-grown. For example, leaf lettuce from your own garden will be perfectly crisp. When it is from your own garden, you can be assured of the quality. Naturally produced food and vegetables strengthen your immunity, boost cardiovascular protection, and prevent cancer, premature aging and more. Farming also fills you with joy and is a great stress buster. When you grow your own vegetables, you experience the taste of real freshness.
