Now you may be thinking to yourself “so what…” “What are the benefits of eating organic food over conventional food anyway?” Well, organic food differs from conventional food in the way it’s grown, handled and produced. For instance, organic food is produced without synthetic fertilizers, genetically modified organisms, antibiotics, hormones, and most conventional pesticides. What constitutes as organic? Things that are single ingredient foods like fruit, vegetables, milk, meat, cheese and eggs and multi ingredient foods that contain between 95% and 100% organic ingredients may be certified organic. Where can you get organic food, you ask? Most supermarkets have a wide variety of organic foods, but the downside of buying from the supermarket is that it’s hard to trace it back to the original source. This is why you should buy from a local farmers market or for you Austinites, check out Whole Foods Market, Wheatsville Co-op, or Central Market places like these have a wide variety of organic products for you to enjoy.
