More and more people are choosing to buy organic produce. Whether that be to avoid pesticides, for environmental reasons or for health reasons, there is no doubt that the UK’s appetite for organic food is growing. You can see it in the ever growing organic section in supermarkets and organic drinks and breakfasts/snacks offered in some cafes.

Organic food is best, no doubt about it. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Organic food is good for you and in a lot of cases tastier and more delicious too! They have fewer pesticides and in some cases more nutrients.
  • Choosing organic is better for the animals. Happy animals with high standards of animal welfare and no routine use of antibiotics.
  • Organic produce is better for the planet with better environmental standards and supporting up to 50% more wildlife.

Wake Up To Organic Campaign

I’m so happy to be taking part in the Wake Up To Organic campaign hosted by The Organic Trade Board by helping spread the word and hopefully encouraging you also to take part. 

The Wake Up To Organic campaign is taking place on the 14 June 2017. Independent stores and cafes across the country will be serving up free organic mini breakfasts to showcase the range of delicious organic food and drink they have to offer, demonstrating just how simple it can be to make the switch to organic.

Who could say no to a free nourishing organic breakfast??

  1. I just returned from taking my dog on her morning walk. And I was about to make breakfast (oat meal) when I decided to check my emails first. So glad I did! Your smoothie bowl will be so refreshing.
