Choosing organic can change your life. Ever wonder what’s in the teas you drink, or the spreads you’re putting on your morning toast? Artificial food colouring, nitrates, trans fats, aspartames and high fructose corn syrup - are all common things lurking in your most beloved snacks and drinks. Being well means eating well too, and that starts with putting good things in your body.
Here are 3 simple ways to eliminate packaged, processed foods from your diet and increase the nutrient value in your foods:
1. Choose fresh, local produce.
2. Check the labels for a certified organic checkmark before purchasing
3. Go to your local health food store for great natural options for food, drink, supplements and even beauty products
Local Brand Feature: Lake & Oak Teas
For the month of March, we teamed up with local Toronto brand Lake & Oak Teas. We reached out to Meredith from L&O as we loved the ethos behind her products and want encourage our community to choose health products that increase wellness and are certified organic.
Lake & Oak Teas are not your normal cup of tea. The teas are hand-blended locally in Toronto and include nature’s most powerful adaptogens, superfoods, spices and fruits in the mixes. They are free of artificial sugars and sweeteners to let the taste of nature speak for itself.
