DAY 8 – Healthy Eating Myth & Truth

MYTH: If it’s organic, it’s healthy

TRUTH: Organic is healthier but not all organic products are healthy. An item can be labeled “organic” but be loaded with organic cane sugar so it’s not healthy. As always, it’s important to read the ingredient list to know if something is healthy. Don’t let the word “organic” fool you into thinking it has to be healthy. When buying produce, meat, dairy it is better to buy organic when possible. To help simplify and prioritize your choices, The Environmental Working Group compiles an annual list “to identify which fresh fruits and vegetables are most and least contaminated with pesticide residues.” This means produce on the “Dirty” list should be organic whenever possible, and that you can purchase conventional produce from the “Clean” list. Check out the 2021 Clean 15 and Dirty Dozen.

For packaged food, keep in mind the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) definition of organic means it is generally free of synthetic substances; contains no pesticides, antibiotics and hormones. That means “Organic” can be put in front of almost anything like sugar, tortilla chips, and cookies. Use moderation and consider if there is any nutritional value.

Something to Think About

One of the biggest lessons that I am currently learning, is how to pray bigger prayers. I know that many of us can be tempted to pray for things that fit inside of our own worldview or the image that we have of ourselves, but God challenges us to ask for more. We need to start asking God to use us in ways that surpass our understanding or imagination, instead of being ruled by our fears and limitations. What is a God sized prayer that you need to pray?
