An organic lifestyle leads to healthy living, a strong body and heightened mental state. Leading an organic lifestyle is easier than you think. The best thing is to practice an organic lifestyle regularly so it becomes a habit. Here’s a look at the best ways to lead an organic lifestyle.
- Organic fruits and veggies
- Limited grass-fed meat, poultry and fish.
- Regular exercise.
Juicing has become a way of life for many who live the organic lifestyle. Juicing is ideal because it provides plenty of nourishment and ingredients your body needs without stuffing yourself with vegetables. Juicing also makes vegetables more palatable for those who don’t have a taste for the green stuff. Simple organic ingredients are the best way to juice.
Juices last 3-4 days in the fridge when made with organic ingredients which commonly spoil before non-organic vegetables and fruits.
Simple Organic Juicing Recipe
- 2 cups of organic spinach.
- 1 stalk of organic celery.
- 1 cup of organic kale.
- 1 organic apple.
- Organic ginger.
- 2 cups of water (depending on the type of blender you use).
The ingredients above vary depending on what type of blender you have. If you are working with a juicer, you will not need water. Water creates a more juice-like consistency when you using a standard blender. Add water to the blender and the spinach, celery and kale and blend thoroughly.
Skin the apple and chop it up before adding to the blender along with grated ginger. Blend again for at least two minutes for the ultimate juice that is chock full of antioxidants, vitamins and fiber to keep you full throughout the day.
Limit Animal Products
Animal products should be limited for an organic lifestyle. Organic, grass-fed animal products are ideal, but should still be limited. Animal products take longer for your body to break down and digest. There are many other ways to fill up on protein and fiber. The best way is with dark, leafy green vegetables such as kale, spinach, collard greens and dark lettuce. This incorporates enough folic acid and protein into your diet when consumed in large quantities.
Beans and Nuts
Beans and nuts should be highly valued for an organic lifestyle. You should incorporate these things for protein and enough healthy fatty acids in your diet. Beans and nuts are calorie dense, but are also packed with high quality ingredients your body needs for fuel throughout the day. Beans can be added to salads or eaten as a main dish with spices. Nuts too can be added to salads or consumed as a snack throughout the day. Beans are very affordable, but nuts can be expensive. Look for a grocery store that sells nuts in bulk for the most economical option.
