AMI Clinic Bedford #LifestyleResolution 9: Take Control of Your Nutrition by Growing Your Own Food

Growing your own food has many rewards, from providing you with fresher, uncontaminated produce and cutting your grocery bill, to increasing your sense of wellbeing. 

Organic Vs. Non Organic 

Two years ago, a meta-analysis by Stanford University found that organic foods are less contaminated with agricultural chemicals

A new analysis confirms that while conventional and organic vegetables oftentimes offer similar levels of many nutrients, organic foods have fewer pesticide residues!

Organic produce also have on average 48% lower levels of cadmium, a toxic metal and a known carcinogen

One key nutritional difference between conventional and organics is their antioxidant content.

Organic fruits and vegetables can contain anywhere from 18-69%more antioxidants than conventionally-grown varieties

Sprouts are actually among the most nutrient-dense foods out there. Topping the list are sunflower seed and pea sprouts, which are typically about 30 times more nutritious than organic vegetables. 

Get Started...Spring will be approaching soon!
