LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle
So my little "Harriet Potter" has been having a BLAST with the PS3 Lego Harry Potter game and as if that wasn't enough, my In-Laws got her the coolest Lego set around. It's the Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle! This isn't the ordinary "Lego" set that I grew up with. This Lego set has hinges and doors, flames on torches, stairs that swivel, and much, much more. It's AMAZING! My In-Laws had as...
Happy 5th Birthday, Emma!!!
My baby is turning 5 today. She is SOOO excited about this age, and the fact that the dentist told her 2 days ago that her two bottom teeth were loose. I keep telling her she's going to look like a jack-o-lantern but she doesn't seem to mind:) I received the Picaboo book in the mail yesterday and it's all wrapped up and ready for Emma to open up. It came out REALLY nice. Can't believe I...

Vita Mix Blender – The Kitchen Appliance No Home Should Be Without
I've got to be honest with you. I hate infomercials. I also don't care much for sales Kiosks where fast-talking snake oil salesmen wearing headset microphones attempt to mesmerize you with their clever words and trivial knowledge. In fact, the Vita Mix blender Kiosk at our local Costco had been up and running for several months before we finally approached it during one of our latest visits. Prior...

Improve your Health by Going Organic

Posted By: Elena in Organic - Comments: 1 Comment »

Sports Writer Max from The Times Herald thinks going organic will improve your health. He gives 5 good reasons why you should considering buying organic foods.

Max says, “On average, I figure I spent an additional $100 per month on better quality and organic foods. To me, this is a very reasonable added expense when you consider the benefit to my health over a lifetime. Along with regular exercise, this decision can significantly reduce my risk of disease and slow the aging process”.

“I realize that it’s impossible to always eat healthy and organic, but the idea is to reduce the toxicity in our bodies by cutting harmful chemicals wherever and whenever possible. Here are just a few reasons why you might consider consuming organic foods and products”.

1. Organic products meet stringent standards.

Organic certification is the public’s assurance that products have been grown and handled according to strict procedures without persistent and often harsh toxic chemical inputs. When a product has been Certified Organic by QAI (Quality Assurance International), you can rest assured that the product, its ingredients and the manufacturer have gone through a thorough investigation.

2. Organic production greatly reduces health risks.

Many EPA-approved pesticides were registered long before extensive research linked these chemicals to cancer and other diseases. Now, the EPA considers 60% of all herbicides (weed killers), 90% of all fungicides (mold killers), and 30% of all insecticides (insect killers) as potentially cancer causing. Organic farming keeps harmful chemicals and pesticides out of the food we eat and beverages we drink. It also prohibits the use of antibiotics in animal feed, which are routinely used in conventional farming and are known to create dangerous antibiotic-resistant pathogens.

3. Organic farms respect our precious water sources.

The elimination of polluting chemicals and nitrogen leaching, done in combination with soil building, protects and conserves water resources. Organic farming reduces toxic farming runoff and pollutants that contaminate our water, soil and air.

4. Organic farmers build better, healthier soil.

Soil is the foundation of the food chain and the primary focus of organic farming. We’re facing the worst topsoil erosion in history due to our current agricultural practice of chemical intensive, mono-crop farming.

5. Organic food tastes better.

It’s common sense – well-balanced soils grow strong healthy plants that taste great. Try an organic orange, apple, or vine-ripened tomato for a sweet and juicy treat.

  1. […] More than ever, parents are looking for the convenience of a quick meal yet wanting the best quality and nutritious foods for their babies. Now, you can have the best of both worlds by purchasing frozen organic baby food. “Organic frozen baby food” that has been “blast frozen” lasts longer, preserves the nutrients and colors of the ingredients better than jarred food and has all the good things that come with “organic“.
