Don’t contain genetically modified organisms

7 Oct

Organic foods: produced using methods that do not involve modern synthetic inputs such as synthetic pesticides and
chemical fertilizers, do not contain genetically modified organisms, and are not processed using irradiation, industrial solvents, or chemical food additives. Any food can be organic as long as it fits into these requirements..being a super food or a whole food.

So now you know the difference and what to look for at the market it will be much easier to have a vegetarian diet without missing the nutrients your body needs and remember the more organic and raw you eat the better the nutritional value of the whole and super foods will be.

Some of my recommendations are first if you need to cook some of them choose boiling, grilling or sauteed methods in extra virgin olive oil and organic sea salt. Second get a juicer, orange and grapefruit squeezer and a food processor it will make life easier for you.

You may have heard about whole foods, super foods and organic foods on TV, with your physician or in your local supermarket but do you know the difference between them and why do you think they are so popular these days?

Quite often these terms are confused although some super foods and some whole foods can be organic doesn’t mean they can necessarily be so( organic). Most commonly some super foods fit into the whole foods category and viceversa. So to avoid confusion and so my weekly menu I am sharing makes more sense lets take a quick look into the definitions for each one of these.be sure that all three undoubtedly are super healthy food alternatives for a balanced rich vegetarian diet.

Whole Foods: unprocessed and unrefined, or processed and refined as little as possible, before being consumed. Typically do not contain added ingredients, such as salt, carbohydrates, or fat.If a food is tinned or packed with many other ingredients, then it is not a whole food. If you try to eat your foods in as natural a state as possible then the better they are for you.
