"Cleaner" Eating - Here's my story so far..

If you follow me on Social Media you would have seen the sudden increase in photos of and around food.
I have always wanted to attempt the Organic way of life but when you live with your family who cook and spend so much time and love on their cooking, its difficult to give it a go.  I've always tried and tested natural remedies and bought local Honey as oppose to the Supermarket stuff.
NOW.. I'm in a place where I have the say in what is going to be bought and cooked. I have read so much about the amounts of Chemicals in mass produced Fruit, Vegetables and Meat but it confuses the life out of me. "This is good, but this isn't!" Well.. what's good for you?
"What does organic mean in food?

    It states that organic meat, poultry, eggs and dairy products come from animals that are given no antibiotics or growth hormones. Organic plant foods are produced without using most conventional pesticides, fertilizers made with synthetic ingredients or sewage sludge, bioengineering or ionizing radiation. " - Definition taken from Google
I grew up on Fruit and Veg from my Grandads garden as well as the local Market. As soon as the Supermarkets came along with their BOGOF offers.. the local Market became seriously unpopular.. "Well.. it goes off quicker!" .. Well, Yes! That's because it hasn't been infected with disgusting chemicals to prolong its life.
People will always have an opinion on this subject.. By no means am I right.. I just feel better for eating Organic.
I buy Organic Fruit & Veg from a local Farmers Market. Yes! it does go off quicker but wouldn't you prefer that to eating a bunch of Chemicals?
Dependant on where you shop, I find buying from a Farmers Market is around the same price as buying from a Supermarket.
I will continue to do this.. Mr UnLeeshd & I are currently going Vegetarian for the month of October :) We have consumed a lot of Fresh Organic Fruit & Veg. After this month, we will begin buying Organic Meat too.
What is your opinion on this subject?
Lotsa love Leesh of UnLeeshd x x x
