Hey, in honor of Earth Day, you may be interested in an article I wrote on how to go organic and why eating this way is so important for your health and what foods you really need to be eating.

Why choose organic over conventionally raised fruits, veggies, and animal products? Well, conventional research confirms what we’ve known all along — organic foods like dairy contain more key nutrients (like beneficial fatty acids so don’t choose fat-free) and fewer unwanted potential irritants.

So, what foods should you be choosing organic more often? Well, the foods you eat most often should be! That’s right – what you should eat organic is going to depend on what you eat and drink daily.

It’s not the same answer for everybody or for everyone all year long. If all winter you eat tomato sauce or drink lattes with milk but in the summer you have iced tea and blueberries, what you should be eating will change seasonally, regardless of where it appears on a list.

Why? The simplest way to improve the nutrient load your body gets is to eat more nutrients with fewer items that can irritate and interfere with body functions or challenge nutrient absorption.
