Are You Buying Healthy Food, or Just the Image of Healthy Food?

If you are buying organic food – whether from your local supermarket or from one of these new organic lunch spots – thinking you’re getting something grown by a small “mom-and-pop” farm nestled in a green valley, then you are probably being deceived.

Many organic foods are now being produced by the giant corporations that make some of the most offensive junk food on the market. And with companies like Kraft, Pepsi, and General Mills now in the business of “organic,” is it any wonder that you can get organic soda, organic pizza, organic potato chips and just about any organic junk food you can think of?

These corporations are poster children for the power of an idea.

Many people are getting hooked on the idea that organic equals healthy, but don’t stop long enough to make a distinction between raw food and processed food, and to ask themselves this vital question: Are organic soda and organic potato chips REALLY healthy snack options?

The obvious answer is no. Organic versions of junk food are STILL just as detrimental to your health as their original counterparts.

The point I want to make here is simply that you still need to pay attention to what you eat, even if it’s from an “organic café.” I’ve written about how to avoid the pitfalls of so-called healthy fast-food fares before.

One of the most important things you can do for your long-term health is to determine your nutritional type and eat accordingly. Giving your body the fuel it needs to operate at optimal efficiency can help you shed excess pounds, maintain a robust immune system, improve your health and your mental well-being.

After years of helping people implement nutritional typing into their lives and seeing the benefits first hand, I’m so convinced of its importance that I am now offering my nutritional typing test as part of my Inner Circle package at no extra charge so that you can see it for yourself.
