Staying healthy in this day and age has become one of the hardest things to do. There are so many temptations wherever you go with advertisements on the TV for the latest edition of Galaxy chocolate or the 24/7 McDonalds at the end of your road. So we’ve rounded up a range of organic brands full of groceries, snacks and recipes that you can get your hands on today!
We’ve all heard about organic food and that it’s much better for you. Organic food contains higher amounts of vitamin C, antioxidants, and the minerals; calcium, iron, chromium, and magnesium. They are free of toxins that damage the brain and nerve cells, which are coated on traditional foods, such as pesticides. Not only does organic food benefit our bodies but it also benefits the earth as it is sustainable and supports greater biodiversity than non-organic food.
