Really that's what you believe?! If that's what you believe, great! However, for most of us this isn't all of a sudden! My parents grew up this way, I grew up this way and now for my children this is how they are being raised! Some of us have always been aware of our bodies and our enviroment! Even though I have been raised to eat organic, healthy food... it really woke me up to see all the food allergies increasing, cancer, diabetes, and many more diseases. I personally know several people that have had cancer and overcome it with eating a strict organic, raw, vegan diet with some supplements. Unfortunetly, with alll the chemicals in our environment, with the precautions many of us take to avoid we can't do anything about them because of the ones putting them there and the govt for allowing it!
Something to think about: I do have some family and friends that don't even know/care about organic.... however it is really interesting to see how when they come over and enjoy my wonderful food they rave all about it! Even if it's just some organic strawberries, they can't believe how good they are! Not only for health benefits but organic truely tastes like the food is supposed to!!

When people into nourishing diets use the term "whole food", they mean complete foods, without refinements or excess processing. For example, "whole grain" still contains the healthy bran and fiber. Another common term is "whole milk", which has not been stripped of the fats.

When somebody recommends eating whole foods, they are saying eat foods in their complete form--without stripping away parts of them or processing parts of them out. You would eat raw sugar, whole grains, produce with the skin on (if it is edible), and eat meat with the fat and skin with it. (Many people think that removing the fats from meats and milk makes them healthier, but some people think it is healthier to leave them in.)


OTOH, organic means foods that are free of pesticides, chemicals, and non-GMO.

When your trying to do this its so hard to find bread...well we have a place in town that has second hand stuff, you can buy, sell or trade...I got myself a bread maker for a coffee table I wanted to get rid of. It would be so easy for me to make up some nice REAL wheat bread, freeze a couple loaves and take a loaf out when I need it. No worries about what the industry has put in it.
Whole wheat bread is fairly easy to find. But it is true that commercial bread has some ingredients that you would not put into your home baked bread.

If you read the ingredient list on the bread bag, you can see if it is all whole grain, or not. Whole wheat bread is widely available these days.

I am eating Dave’s Killer Bread brand 100% Whole Wheat Bread these days.

natural foods means nothing

organic foods have actual requirements and are certified

Yes.

But most of us understand what natural peanut butter is. So, in that case, I suupose the word natural is meaningful.

You might want to check how loosely the term "Organic" can be applied in this country.

Yup. A big difference between NON-GMO and Organic!!

If it just says NON GMO it might not be free of stuff that isnt good for you.... If you can afford it,always look for stuff that says USDA ORGANIC (Anything labeled organic is NON-GMO)
