HOW TO SHOP FOR HEALTHY OPTIONS

.

A great way to save on cost of healthy food is joining a CSA. That stands for Community Sponsored Agriculture and it is basically a seasonal subscription to a farm — usually from June through October. How it works is a farmer delivers at a location such as a Farmers’ Market or has a stand on its premises where you pick up a weekly load of whatever is in season that week. A vegetable share is the most popular kind of share, although there are options for eggs, meat and fruits. You can find a CSA at your local farmers market or on the Local Harvest website.

If there are limited organic foods sold in your area, consider at least getting “the dirty dozen” from a safe source — the 12 most polluted fruits and vegetables.

HOW TO FIND HEALTHY RESTAURANTS

Organic

It’s almost impossible to find organic restaurants where all of the ingredients are certified organic. Luckily, the “Farm-to-Table” option is usually a good choice when it comes to your plate.

Farm-to-Table

Some restaurants partner with local farms to bring seasonal produce, meat and eggs. The farms may or may not be certified organic and it’s a good idea to ask at the restaurant about the farm’s practices. Look for sustainable farms or those that follow sustainable or organic practices.

Listing of Restaurants

For us, looking for good options on the go has been a passion and we gladly share a recommended list of eateries. The chains we love are Chipotle (make sure to ask what is Organic before adding to your plate), Bareburger and Dig Inn.

HOW TO HYDRATE WITH THE HEALTHIEST DRINKS

What we eat is just as important as what we drink. While many corporations’ primary focus is generating profit, we need to find our path to long term health by thorough research on ingredients.

Getting the Purest Water

Is filtered water good to drink? It depends. There are a few filters available on the market that purify the water substantially to clear out all substances associated with long-term health concerns. One of those is a RO filter. Links and more information coming soon.

Getting the purest water can be a challenge and in our next video we will cover that subject. Until then, stay tuned!

A Word on Soft Drinks

In this section, we will cover preservatives, additives and sugar. My recommendation is spring or mineral water (flat or sparkling) from a glass bottle and freshly squeezed fruit juice.
