Food, Glorious (Organic) Food!

Eating organic is VERY important. Somebody might think, “eating organic is for health freaks”, but it’s NOT. Organic foods are foods that fall into one of these categories : 1. No pestisdes are used to make it. 2. It wasn’t made in a labatory. Many foods are made with pestisdes that are posinous and ingredients that can give you cancer. Corn Syrup and Cottonseed Oil are two examples. People might also think, “Isn’t organic and natural the same thing?” NO.

Natural foods follow category 2, but not category 1. They aren’t made from a labatory, but they may have corn syrup and pestisdes. Natural foods are still good, but not as good as organic foods. THey are made from ingredients that came from the earth. Whole Foods is a natural & organic store. Native Sun  is an organic only store. Organic & Natural foods cost more because less people buy them. If more people buy organic & natural foods, then the price will go down.

  1. Hi Jake,

    I found your blog from the Student Blogging Challenge, and think you did a great job explaining the difference between organic food and natural food. We have some specialty organic and natural foods stores, and most grocery stores have an organic section. Is it the same where you live?

    Kind regards,

    • @Tracy Watanabe Yes. Publix has a Greenwise section. We also have Whole Foods and Native Sun, although Native Sun is only in Jacksonville.

  2. This is a very informational post and I enjoyed reading and learning about organic food.
    Is some kosher food organic too?

  3. Another really great post, Jake (with a clever title)! It can be really challenging to eat healthy, organic foods all the time. I try to avoid certain ingredients in foods I buy, like high fructose corn syrup and partially hydrogenated oils. Just avoiding those two ingredients makes most of the foods on the shelves at Publix off limits.

    I agree with you that it is VERY important to buy organic foods. However, sometimes I just can’t spend the money. I do spend a lot of money on food, though, because I think it is so important. I would rather spend the money to buy organic food than to become unhealthy from not eating well and have to spend the money to pay for medical care.
