Living a healthy lifestyle, especially when it comes to food, has been an important topic of interest on my blog for the past couple of weeks. While I think it is important to lead a healthy life, it can sometimes be difficult at certain times of the year (hint, hint… The holidays!). With Thanksgiving and Christmas right around the corner, I thought it would be appropriate to blog about how to enjoy a delicious holiday season while also making healthy choices.
According to a Women’s Health Article, 8 Disgusting Facts about Thanksgiving Food, chemically treated turkey’s are farmed in warehouses full of bacteria from manure. These turkeys contain harmful antibiotics that may leave you at risk for consuming a contaminated turkey with dangerous bacteria. If you can, buy organic to significantly lower this risk!
Although it may not always be convenient to choose organic food, try to as much as possible, especially if you are preparing your holiday meals. Personally, I have noticed a difference after switching much of my food to organic.
I’ve learned that you can have your cake and eat it too. Eating organic can be yummy and it also respects your body more than processed foods.
