Why Eating Organic Is Important
We definitely live in a day and age when there are so many processed foods or foods that are sprayed with chemicals, pesticides, or have unwanted additives. This can take away from nutritional value or have us ingesting things we probably shouldn’t. Although I don’t buy completely organic, I do have a few products that I buy organic on a pretty regular basis. Fruits and veggies where we eat the outside, milk and meat are my main focuses when it comes to purchasing organic. I am hoping to get 100% there someday, but my choices at stores nearby are limited and I’m glad that my local grocers do carry the organic foods that they do.

 

Horizon Organic Milk

 

Horizon Organic is a brand that is offered at my local retailers and one that I trust. They put together this cute video to show you what types of organic purchases you should probably be making.

There are many reasons to buy organic, but a lot of consumers don’t understand the benefits. I know my husband wasn’t sold on the idea when I started buying some organic products. Horizon outlines some of the many reasons to buy organic and the integrity their products have. From Horizon’s website:

  • No use of synthetic pesticides.The cows that produce Horizon® Organic milk only eat fresh, organic pasture and certified organic feed, and they are raised on farms where no synthetic pesticides are used.
  • No added growth hormones. Horizon cows are never treated with growth hormones. Instead, they produce milk according to their natural cycles.
  • No GMOs or cloning. Organic regulations prohibit the use of genetic modification, which means you can be sure that our products are produced without genetically modified organisms (GMOs). Milk from cloned cows is also prohibited.
  • No antibiotics. If a cow becomes ill, organic farmers rely on holistic and homeopathic treatments, rather than antibiotics, to bring her back to health. In fact, organic regulations strictly prohibit the use of antibiotics on dairy cows.

If you haven’t tried Horizon organic milk, now is your chance. You can use this $1 off 2 half gallons Horizon milk coupon and purchase Horizon organic milk at a retailer near you.

    organic is always better ! hanks for sharing, gonna try this one out…

    I also think its important to buy organic… I also think that foods should already be organic (why should we pay for foods that should be this way from the start)… should I purchase milk anytime soon (or any other goods) I will definitely purchase organic.

    I always buy organic milk because my family drinks so much of it. It may be my imagination, but I think it tastes so much better than conventional milk. I really like the tetra-pak single serve milk boxes from Horizon!

    I would love to go totally organic at some point.

    I can’t say that I only buy organic, but I’m heading in that direction. It wasn’t until last year that I even tried to eat “healthy” so I’m moving in the right direction.

    I’m slowly going back to all organic, but with a family as large as mine, it’s quite expensive. I’m focusing on locally grown fruits and veggies. I don’t drink milk anymore and grains are a thing of the past for me.

    We go organic as much as possible. We grow our own fruits & veggies without pesticides. We buy our meat, milk, butter, and whipping cream from a local Amish farmer. When I do have to buy milk in the store, Horizon is my first choice.
