6 steps to living a more organic life
With September being all about organic, we’ve rounded up six of our go-to organic treasures to help you lead a “Good Life”.
Want to learn more about organic growth? For new business owners, this is a shrewd investment. As good as it is to learn from print, sometimes networking won’t hurt you, either.
FRUITS OF LABOUR
Classic Seventies sitcom The Good Life was such a hit because it was as achievable as it was romantic: the very thought of quitting the day job to live off your own produce is enough to elicit an audible sigh. Home-Grown Harvest gives you the skills to emulate Felicity Kendal by growing your own fooder, with 150 recipes for maximum deliciousness .
It’s time to take that commitment to being organic to a whole new level. This grow-your-own kit from the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) includes Beetroot Rainbow Mix, Purple Carrots, Vivid Swiss Chard, Radish Blush Mix, Tomato Tigerella and Squash Turkish Turban. Even if this proves a gardening disaster, at least you’ll have fun trying.
Being teetotal and organic can be oddly tricky. After all, the majority of squashes and fizzy drinks don’t particularly fit this brief. This Grapefruit Water Kefir is made from organic grapefruits and offers a delightful alternative to Rosé. And because it’s a kefir, it helps improve gut health and immunity, while the vitamin A gives skin a beautiful glow.
If you have sensitive skin, you don’t want anything pumped full of nasties. Thankfully, this certified-organic range has been formulated to let skin breathe, providing relief to dry, sensitive and reactive areas. We particularly adore the Sensitive Restore + Smooth Serum, which helps combat the appearance of redness and is very much part of our daily ritual.
THE REAL DEAL
Part of eating more healthily is embracing natural ingredients. This is Eat Real’s modus operandi, offering taste and nutrition free of nasties. The fact these lentil chips are 100 per cent organic, and also happen to come in 100g sharing bags, makes them an ideal partner to convert friends and family to snack that little bit better.
