What Eating Organically Means to Us

August 29th, 2015

We started to change our diets at our house about a year ago. I am not talking about diet in the way most people do. I am talking about diet as in everything we consume in food and drink and supplements. A traditional definition of “diet” is to restrict calories by cutting out or cutting back on food. However, it means everything we do eat at our house as well as what we drink and the supplements we take. Our dietary intake includes a lot of organic food delivery in Singapore directly to our house. We prefer to eliminate as much of the chemical load as we can. You cannot tell me that some residual pesticides or synthetic fertilizers do not get into the fruits and vegetables that are not grown organically.

We are picky about our organic food too. We make sure it is really sourced from a farm that produces real organic fruits and vegetables. It is more than just a label to us. The word “organic” has to be defined by the supplier we get our food from. This is because there are not any absolute rules that farms follow concerning the word, and who is going to enforce ones that use it incorrectly anyway? We are responsible for what we put in our bodies. This is why we diligently research the source of the food we eat.

Is it worth it? I would say absolutely yes. We feel better. That is subjective. However, objectively we can show improvement in lipid profiles, lowered blood pressure and more stable glucose levels throughout the day. Our skin has visibly improved since we have reduced the chemical load of soaps, shampoos and cleaning supplies too. It is all in what you want out of life. We choose to live organically with as little chemical load as possible. Of course, we have to breathe the urban air of Singapore, but we are doing better in so many other areas it is making a difference.
