Thanks first of all to the living Word of God and worship and prayer, and then to the decisions to eat mainly organic and Non-GMO foods and get regular exercise, Clayton and I have enjoyed much greater health even than we did in our 20s and 30s! You can too. Here’s the first part of easy tips that really work–starting with a couple of myth-busters.
Myth: “Natural” means “organic.” FACT: “Natural” just means God made it, and man did not. “Organic” means it is a natural food or product that God made, AND that it has NOT had any man-made (READ: Harmful!) chemicals or other substances sprayed on the products, nor the plants they came from, nor put in the soil (i.e., man-made chemical fertilizers, etc.). “Non-GMO” means the food or product is NOT genetically (scientifically or chemically) modified from its original, GOD-made state. There are many levels of “organic” and more about non-GMO, but we won’t cover that here.
Myth: Organic food costs too much/a lot more. FACT: The truth–especially long-term, is that organic food actually costs less, and can cost MUCH less!
I cannot count the times I have been in a drug store or even passing the pharmacy at Wal-Mart and been so thankful I was not there to pick up a prescription, but to buy makeup or candy or something else I wanted.
The truth is that sometimes organic products do cost a little more. But unless you are talking about grass-fed beef or such, the difference is not that big. When you consider that YOU ARE WORTH IT and invest in organic and non-GMO foods and other products, you are making a very wise investment.
Overall, a lack of education and understanding is why many more people have not been eating well. But things are changing! Clayton and I used to drive a few hours to shop at a wholesale organic food chain, but many more organic and non-GMO foods are now available at the places we shop, and we’re thrilled.
Take a step and invest in your holy health by buying organic and/or non-GMO today!
