You’ve done your research, assessed all the pros and cons, and finally decided to make the big switch to organic. But even after all the careful planning and decision making, changing such a vital aspect of your life is not an easy task. Right from dealing with the higher prices of organic produce to giving up some of your favorite foods items, there can be a lot of obstacles in your journey to go organic. But with a little help and right guidance, it can become a lot easier. And that’s exactly why we have compiled a list of tips to help you switch to organic. Read on:
Instead of completely switching to organic, choosing the organic version of just a few foods you consume regularly can significantly increase the percentage of organic in your diet. Try to buy things like multigrain organic flour instead of regular wheat flour, and organic potatoes in place of their siblings laden with pesticides.
- Shop seasonal veggies
These days almost all the vegetables are available every season. But do you know, out of season vegetables and fruits are either shipped from far which requires a lot of preservatives, or grown with the help of chemicals? If you don’t want to buy all your veggies from an organic farmer, you can still reduce your chemical intake by buying only seasonal vegetables.
- Grow your own food
For a small family, you can easily grow things like tomatoes, coriander, almost all gourds, and cucumber in your backyard or pots. This will not only make it easier for you to eat organic vegetables but will also give you access to fresh food all the time.
- Buy in bulk
Convenience is often the biggest obstacle to going organic. We plan on buying organic pulses, but when the need arises and organic is nowhere in sight on the shop aisles, we are forced to buy whatever is available. It’s the best idea to stock things like grains, pulses, spices, and oils for at least a month.
- Order your food
Frustrated because there’s no organic shop near your house? In the era of the internet, it’s really not a big deal. From chat masala to green tea and rice to millets, you can easily order organic produce online from 24 Mantra’s Amazon store.
And always remember, when making a lifestyle change, it’s always best to start small. Instead of completely changing your shopping patterns and eating habits in a day, change one thing at a time.
