Some of us are feeling increasingly concerned by the horror stories of genetically modified and hormone pumped fruits and vegetables. People are discovering that they have diseases, cancers and other serious ailments when, quite frankly, they are just too young. It is not a new idea that the issue could lie in the food that we are eating. Should we be opting for more natural, organic foods that so many people, and for so long, have been telling us to do?
Thankfully, taking the organic route does not have to be expensive. Although healthy eating is usually a little pricier when compared to quick fast food meals, the benefits are endless in the long run. This is, after all, our health we’re talking about. Fortunately, going organic doesn’t mean that you have to track down fresh food markets and spend tons of money; you can actually grow your own vegetables and herbs at home, regardless of whether you live in an apartment with only a small balcony to spare, or a decent sized house with an extensive back yard. Even if you only have a very small space with which to work, there are many creative solutions. You’ll be growing market quality vegetables and herbs in no time, and you will be super proud of yourself for doing it too.
