In previous articles like the Diet of happiness, I mentioned that I have been on the way to live a healthier lifestyle. The more I learn the importance of how these foods affect our hormones and our mood the more I want to live differently.
Today I want to talk about the benefits of eating organic and for you to hear me out and also consider it.
Eating healthy foods will provide us with the necessary energy throughout the day without feeling weak or tired.
WHAT CAN BE DONE TO DEVELOP GOOD EATING HABITS?
The first thing, is to learn what it really means to eat well.
The goal is to accustom your palate to eat fresher, more balanced and safer foods.
A good alternative to make the switch to a healthier lifestyle is to note the change you want to accomplish that will bring you towards this goal.
Then you want to create small goals for implementing each week. Creating small goals – in everything you do – help you take small steps toward where you want to go.

Creating goals and steps to achieve them will allow you to stay on track and away of drastic changes in your life – such extreme diets – which will only be hard to maintain making you give up 15 days after.
This is how my health goal looks like
my goal: Eating healthier in 2016

HEALTHY EATING ATTRACTS POSITIVE CHANGES
Healthy goals can be simple, you can choose from eating processed sugars, remove the junk, food from your kitchen, or consume more organic foods. When I made this changes I immediately noticed results, especially when it comes to my energy levels.
“Neurobiologists have discovered a link between food and mood. There are combinations of hormones that affect the degree of happiness and well -being, and some are present in food . So when one can eat better one can feel better, sleep well and find some pain relief “
It was not until I met the brand Annie’s Organic for Everybunny that I discovered all the snack and meal options that are available and healthy – best of all Organic!
With this change, I could now continue towards my goal this year of eating healthy and eating organic.
As a lover of chocolate, my favorite snack is their chocolate chip granola. This Granola Bar from Annie’s Organic is certified organic and contains 8 grams of whole grain per serving, which makes it very healthy.
If you are looking for other options to snack, Annie’s also has cookies, popcorn and organic fruit snacks.
With all these options, I feel relief that I am giving my body healthy ingredients even when I snack.
BENEFITS OF EATING ORGANIC
By consuming foods that are free of chemicals such as: pesticides, growth hormones and other artificial substances, allowing ourselves to consume food in the most natural way possible and at the same time without generating changes in the land and, of course, environmental short- and long-term damages.
The methods and techniques used in the cultivation and harvesting of organic food are ethical and safe.
WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
Unfortunately modern agriculture has focused on excess chemicals and techniques to increase the size of the food (using GMO) and using techniques to improve the performance of their production without consideration of their effects on the health of people, the life of these animals or their effect on the overall planet.
BUT NOT ALL ARE ALIKE …
There are some farmers out there as Annie’s Organic for Everybunny that still have some moral and their focus is on producing healthy food, have ethical practices and respecting people, animals and the earth.
Therefore, I invite you to buy organic food. This switch to a healthier choice will not only help maintain your health, but also help to preserve our planet.
Check out the products Annie’s Organic for Everybunny and I recommend you their organic granola because it’s delicious!
