More benefits to the big “O”!

Well, of course I mean Organic – what were you thinkin’?

Yes, by now we should all know that eating Organic is just plain better.  Better for our bodies, our soil, and our planet.  Eating organically leaves behind the pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, GMO’s and irradiation that are all part of the conventional counterparts.

Research shows  that there are even more benefits you may not have known about.  Benefits that are especially alluring for SexyMomas!

1.   Fewer Wrinkles – A European study found that organic fruits and vegetables contain up to 40 percent more antioxidants than the chemically-farmed produce.  Antioxidants gobble up those pesky wrinkle-causing free radicals and are essential for a healthy glow.

2.   Weight loss – Now that you know antioxidants are important for less wrinkles, you want to maximize them right?  Consuming foods rich in antioxidants means feasting on more whole foods like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.  Whole foods are rich in fiber, and by default, fill you up on less, so you have less calories in.

3.   Healthier babies -  Did you know that pesticides and chemicals can be stored in body fat?  This could be an issue if you are planning on conceiving or already are pregnant, because these fat stores can be tapped and the contents can be passed to your infant, in utero, and through breast milk.  A compelling reason to stick to a chemical-free diet.
