Organic In Season – Best Price, Best Quality

One of the main parts of our mission at The Really Nourish Movement is that organic, non-GMO food should be available, accessible and affordable for every mouth.  We have a long way to go to accomplish that goal, but in the meantime, we can debunk the “organic is more expensive myth.” 

We all know that most of what we eat is seasonal, but with the technological advances

spurred by the industrial revolution at the turn of the previous century, we have been able to access all kinds of food  all year round from all over the world.

That is a fact.  But the TRUTH is that the seasonal nature of cultivated food still exists.  Think about when something is on sale in the produce section.  If it’s on sale, the reason is usually because there is more of it available so they can charge less per unit or per pound, right?  But why does the quantity available change?

Answer: When food is in its God ordained season, it is abundant AND ALSO at its peak quality!

(Oh wow, that’s a WORD right there!!)

That’s true universally, even for chemically grown or greenhouse grown food.  As for their Really Nourish Whole Foods Local Organic Eggplantorganic counterparts, you may find that there are some times of year when certain items are

simply not available at all, but when they are in season, they are inexpensive and so delicious!

Judah and I went shopping yesterday and we found local, organic, in-season squash for only $.99 a pound!  We also bought some local, organic eggplant, which is still yummy but coming close to the end of its season for $2.99 a pound.

We are going to half the squash, scoop out the seeds, make a delicious mix with diced eggplant, red onion, garlic, sprouted brown rice and fresh herbs from our terrace garden and that is dinner for less than $2 a serving!

Do you still think organic is expensive?  Post your comments below.

Support your Right to Know about GMOs: Boycott Monsanto

This is a list of Monsanto’s companies courtesy of True Activist.

Monsanto has spent more than $4.7 Million lobbying for the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015, more accurately known as the DARK Act (Deny Americans the Right to Know).  The act would deny states the right to require labeling of foods containing GMOs, and would stop future regulation of GMOs in agriculture.  Genetically Modification exists only to protect their interest, but numerous studies have shown that prolonged consumption of GMOs can have adverse effects on YOUR health.

Preserve our Right to Know. #BoycottMonsanto today!

What on Earth Has Happened to Our Daily Bread????

With so many mentions in The Bible, one would come to the conclusion that indeed bread should rightly be the cornerstone of man’s food supply.

Trouble is the bread referred to back then, used even as a symbol of the body of Christ at The Last Supper, is definitely NOT the bread we have available today.  Pound for pound, it’s the least expensive thing in the supermarket.  Even whole wheat bread is relatively inexpensive and very often on sale, but that too is a deception.  The grain used to make bread is refined,

Ezekiel 4:9 Breakfast Cereal combines a variety of whole sprouted grains and excludes wheat, organic and non-gmo.

redesigned and redefined to suit not the nutrient needs of the consumer, but the financial needs of the producer.  That is definitely NOT what God intended!

From an article on AmazingDiscoveries.org:

Bread has been called the “staff of life.” But because most folks consume grain in its refined state, this staple contains virtually no nutritive properties and cannot support animal or human life. “Fortified” grain products are also useless and deceptive.

Wheat is the key ingredient in the American diet. But after being milled, it is seldom utilized in its whole form with its components intact. Invariably, when we eat wheat, we get it in the form of bread, pies, cakes, cookies, biscuits, spaghetti, cream of wheat, cereals, and other forms that have been treated, heated, fractioned, and fragmented until it is next to impossible to recognize it for what it was originally.

A refined grain, or its product, is made by processing a natural, whole grain so that some or most of the nutrients are lost. Almost all grain products have been refined in some way or another.

White rice, cream of wheat, cookies, and bowls of snap-crackle-and-pop each morning are all examples of refined grain products.

Please post your suggestions for bread that actually provides nutrition and not just simple sugar with no health benefits.  Thanks!
