OVER TO YOU, STEVE – LIVING THE ORGANIC LIFE

Ecology, organic icon set. Eco-icons

Guys, thanks for keeping the faith, and thanks for sticking with us at this early stage of our healthy blogging journey with you. We hope that our modest nudging so far has inspired you. Feel free to ask us anything that might be niggling you at this time. If there’s expert info needed, we’ll point you in the right direction if we can. Usually, what will happen is that our content manager – the guy that’s running our blog – will pass on the info you might be after.

It’s free and it’s easy. Try this guys. Before using us to feed you with a spoon, do some of your own homework. Do some reading and research of your own. Go to the internet and use it like there’s no tomorrow. We strongly recommend this for now because you’re going to be inundated with such a wide variety of views, news, issues and opinions. Become a practiced reader so that nothing ever has to confuse you.

Incidentally, you’ll see how everything eventually ties up. Getting healthy and fit doesn’t only need expertise, motivation and research. It also takes common sense and a conscience, something we’ve all been given. Now, before there’s any further time delay, let Steve take over from here. Today he’s going to inspire you briefly on what it means to live a wholly organic life.

Thanks, Sue. Love you too. Okay, guys, it’s like this. I’m going to start in the kitchen and then hit the supermarket shelves, because that’s where most of the familiarity lies for most of you, not so. All the food that you source from your local supermarket, corner deli or country road food-stall should be organic. This basically means that everything that you’ll be buying in the future is natural. It’s also toxic free.

This means that your family’s food is free of harmful chemicals and high levels of sodium and white sugar content. The sodium is the salt. The sugar, the stuff you would normally stir into your coffee, is deceptively hidden and serves no true purpose other than to poison your body with the harmful possibility of contracting obesity and/or diabetes. We are continuing to receive negative vibes about how much more expensive organic food is than so-called normal (processed) food.

Add up your future medical bills and you’ll see that organic food and organic lifestyle habits will be a whole lot cheaper in the long run. For the time being, I recognize and understand that many of you cannot afford those healthy condiments – fresh, naturally produced fruit jams and honey, for instance – or even the fruit and vegetables that have been specifically labeled organic. It won’t be a perfect science, but there’s a way out of this quandary.

Simply start cultivating your own organic garden. In the first year or so, it’s likely to only be vegetables because they’re quite easy to grow. Later on, the other stuff can follow. Be patient and the habit will grow on you, if you will. Okay, so you can’t grow your own meat where you’re living. But as you become more healthy and active, you’ll find you’ll be eating less meat anyhow. Your organic food diet will be more balanced than any conventional (unhealthy) meal could ever be.

So, your organic meat products, free range otherwise, will be cheaper because you won’t be buying too much of it. Switching from food to household toiletries follows similar principles and practices. Natural skin care products, for instance, work out a lot cheaper than the clinically prepared products because you won’t need to use too much of it (in comparison to the clinical stuff). Also, the ingredients, all natural sink into you so deeply that it’ll end up affecting your psyche in a wholesome and natural way.

You’ll be cutting out a lot of garbage in your life that much I can say. Time is running out, so let me wrap this post up for you. Don’t use plastic. Use recyclable brown paper, if you have to. Don’t print this page. Plant a tree in your garden instead.
