Juicing became a trend not more than a few years ago, and today, it is still going strong. Rather than it being a trend, however, this has turned into something more along the lines of a healthy lifestyle. People want to eat well, but busy day-to-day activity typically yields bad food choices. It’s difficult to eat a healthy, organic meal while you’re on the run all the time, so a juice that packs all of the most healthful punch into one convenient drink gives people just that; convenience. In addition to this juice trend, “going green” is an ongoing epidemic as well.
Not only are people becoming more conscientious of the environment, but they are also practicing the same thing in regard to their bodies! The best way to fuel and invigorate yourself is through organic food choices. Organic food is often fresher than products that are infused with preservatives to elongate shelf life, which means that you’re consuming the product at its freshest point. In addition to the benefits that organic food gives its consumers, it is also better for the environment. So, organic food is a win-win for everybody; a healthier you, and a cleaner environment.
Here are some facts about the current organic food industry:
• 78% of U.S. families purchase at least some organic foods (Organic Trade Association, 2011 U.S. Families’ Organic Attitudes and Beliefs Study)
• Less than 1% of U.S. farmland is certified organic (USDA Economic Research Service)
• Organic Food is 25% more nutritious in terms of vitamins and minerals (well.org)
• Organic wheat, tomatoes, potatoes, cabbage, onions and lettuce have between 20% & 40% more nutrients than non organic foods (well.org)
