You have decided to add Mother Nature to your diet, but does mean that you need to go out into the forest and eat every berry and herb you can find or that you recognize? You may laugh, but for centuries this is exactly what humans did and they survived just fine, that in combination with a great hunt and kill and they were well fed.
While times have advanced and techniques, methods, and skills have certainly moved on and improved, the fact remains that ingredients grown, sourced, and produced from nature are far superior to the mass-produced man-made products we see lining the supermarket shelves.
There is no argument that the grocery store items we so easily grab and throw into the trolley have a fair amount of chemicals and preservatives in them, but to live a cleaner, healthier lifestyle we need to be more aware of what we are buying.
Looking at labels.
Reading product ingredient labels may not have been a practice we are accustomed to but if you want to make a change for the better then it will need to become second nature, and the more you do it, you will soon know which items are good without having to take a moment to read the packaging.
New products may seem enticing and being cleverly advertised and with smart, colorful packaging it can be easy to get swooped up into buying it, but don’t be fooled. Too often these products are filled with 50%, if not more, artificial flavors and colorings, and who knows what negative effects that can have on the body and the mind in the long run?
If you are new to the world of cleaner eating and healthier living and looking for nutritional supplements to fill your diet then take a moment to see here https://www.goodnet.org/articles/good-guide-to-reading-organic-other-food-labels just how easy it is to be label aware, and all without the drama we put on ourselves when feeling overwhelmed by something new.
Once you have the hang of it, like with anything new, you will be whipping around the store picking up organic and all-natural products like a pro, and eating healthier will become second nature.
Plants as food.
If you had to sit and think about and jot down what you know as food and which comes from plants then you will be surprised at just how long your list can get. The more common ones being fruit and vegetables that sustain us from day to day, but also the roots, stems, and even the leaves contain nutrients that can add to our meal plan.
So, with all this information at our fingertips and readily available why then is the population still struggling to catch up with the popular world of herbs and organics? Is it because we are so set in our ways that a change can be daunting, or do we not believe the ‘hippies’ and their protests for less killing of animals or wildlife and to live off of the earth?
Plants have been the foundation for recipes for centuries, and these have been passed down for generations with a few spices or oils added along the way, so why then would a humble plant such as the Hemp plant with its long list of health advantages, and beneficial plant compound known to us as CBD, be such a hushed conversation?
Cannabidiol (also known as CBD, read more about it when you click here) is one ingredient that not only offers a multitude of health advantages but being grown in nature and ethically harvested has the lowest if any for that matter, trace of chemicals or harmful toxins we tend to find in produce which is grown using pesticides or growth hormones.
It has been used (documents have been reported) as early as the Ancient Chinese Emperor reigns and aided his gout and pain with much success. He would infuse it in his tea and sip it throughout the day, he claimed that it gave him a new lease on life, and without it, he would most likely have been bedridden.
If you are anything like my friend and I then you will know all too well the ordeal it takes to try to swallow down a few multivitamin capsules, and often it ends up being choked out because the gallon of water you have drunk just doesn’t seem to want to wash it down.
Thankfully, and wanting to enjoy and reap the benefits of CBD and the long list of its health positives, there are other options, and even more fun is that they come in the size, shape, and style of regular-looking candies. Win-win. Who wouldn’t want to eat ‘candies’ every morning and know that your essential vitamins and minerals are being taken, now you can?
There are plenty of organic stores and boutiques that offer a wide variety of sweet treats, snacks, or CBD-infused nibbles, and browsing companies such as cheef botanicals will give you a good idea of what is on the market and how to differentiate the quality products versus the quantity wholesales looking to make a quick buck.
With careful research, you will find the right product to fit not only your lifestyle but your handbag and gym duffel, and with the compact convenience of grab-and-go package size, you can have a great day with CBD no matter where you are in the world.
