It is the only sure fire way to know that you are eating officially organic produce that hasn't been sprayed with pesticides but it also will do you a lot of good when it comes to the next benefit.

A Plant Based Diet

This is very trendy now, and this combined with a vegan approach to eating has resulted in a lot of people becoming a "flexitarian," meaning that they indulge in the healthy habits of eating vegan or vegetarian but occasionally going back to their old habits once in awhile. The documentary What The Health showed a lot of people the benefits of a plant based diet in comparison to eating meat and eating a high quantity of plants in our diets doesn't just reduce inflammation, but it can help to combat common illnesses like asthma and hay fever. You can also see now that there are many more restaurants catering for vegans and providing more organic produce, which makes it easier to adopt this lifestyle for the sake of our long-term health.

Yoga

Combining yoga with a meditation routine can give you a way to cope with life’s stresses that little bit better while also helping you to improve your posture and balance. You will also be able to get rid of toxins quicker which will result in a more youthful complexion and better skin, and then if you were to combine this with a plant based diet from fruits and vegetables you grow at home you aren't just officially a trendy mom, but a fully self-sustaining one!
