Kids are not known to be the world’s biggest vegetable lovers. But a lot of them love milkshakes! Organic smoothies can be like a healthy milkshake for children. They come in kid friendly flavors like chocolate banana, strawberry, and berry, but they pack more nutritional punch than other kinds of dessert.
Are you lactose intolerant and missing the goodness of milk? Some farms produce lactose free organic milk, allowing you to enjoy the taste and nutrition of milk without the problems caused by lactose intolerance. This is done by including an enzyme that makes digesting lactose easier and more comfortable.
Need a boost without the sugar rush or synthetic caffeine consumption? Some organic sodas contain natural energy lifting ingredients. Using berries, herbs, and extracts, these sodas add a bit of zing to a bubbly base, letting you fit energy drinks into your healthy lifestyle.
Organic may be a relatively recent idea, but the fact is that everything was grown organically less than 100 years ago. Traditions from the past were perfected over centuries in an effort to make the best white wines. They just happened to be organic white wine.
Organic wineries that got a bad rap initially are now producing beautiful, complex, and delicious organic red wines. While there may be organic wineries that produce organic wines just for the organic market potential, there are also many wineries that have taken a back-to-traditions approach and created organic red wine worth drinking.
When you think about an energy boosting drink, you might think of brand names and high volumes of caffeine. Do you even know what’s in those drinks? Organic energy drinks pack a similar punch, using a different set of ingredients. Made with things like guarana, green (unroasted) coffee beans, and herbal teas, these drinks are refreshing and invigorating in an all natural way.
Most good organic beer is brewed by microbreweries. Everything else about the brewing process is the way you like it – small batches, attention to the details, and care with the entire process – but the key ingredients, hops and wheat, haven’t been grown with pesticides.
Not only do coffee crops tend to be very highly sprayed, but a lot of the cheapest coffees are grown where pesticide use isn’t well regulated. If you’re saving a dollar or two on coffee because organic ground coffee is too expensive, you’re probably getting an extra dose of pesticides. No pesticide use is good for humans, but the more we ingest, the worse it is for us.
