Australian Organic Awareness Month happens every September. Here this a good chance to promote healthy organic foods to the Australian consumer and our way of eating. I know we can’t be there in person but we can do our best online.
Pre COVID I loved going to Realfoods and Realfoods would make the best curry and they would do the best vegetarian pies.
Why choose organic?
Organic food is free of pesticides and other added ingredients. According to Bud Organic club, they say that organic food is free-range and not tested on animals. For them to be really organic they do have to carry the certified organic labels.
They are more nutritionally dense than other foods. At Realfoods and TOWFD I was always full afterward and very happy.
Certified organic food protects our environment from harmful chemicals and gases. These gases are used to produce normal food.
What we did
This month we went to a few organic places on our runs. The Organic Wherehouse is one of them and another one is the Ladybird Organics. Here they had all sorts of healthy snacks that I enjoyed post-run. When we buy chicken we buy the Macro range which is healthier and tastier.
Post-COVID when we are all allowed back into the city, I’d go to TOWFD and Realfoods if they are still open. I’d also visit Lentils as Anything. I’d also visit the Cruelty-free shop in Fitzroy.
