I remember the times as a sugar baby when I would walk past organic shops and cringe at the prospect of ever becoming adept to this ever growing trend. The reason, I never believed changing my entire eating habit cycle would bring any significant change to my overall health and appearance; not to mention the effect this lifestyle would have on my bank account digits. But this was a long time ago! As a successful sugar baby, making sure I am up to date with the latest fashion trends, politics and always brushing up on my general knowledge is not all. A sugar baby has got to be at the top of her game and appearance is your business card. Remember: you are what you eat! So let’s have a look at a few organic options which really make a difference when it comes to skin and hair.
Why organic? Let’s start by remembering that mass producers need to make sure their harvest can leave up to the market demand. That is, the product needs to be on the supermarket shelf and in large quantities. For this to be possible farmers can use a number of solutions so the produce can reach supermarket shelves without major obstacles. For this synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, growth hormones, antibiotics, and depending on which country you live that may also mean genetically modified organisms can be used. But for you cunning sugar baby who needs answers for how exactly to have a healthy life without going into the red, here are a few myths busted. That way your sugar daddy will fall head over heels for your skin quality and hair.
We could go on and on about the pros of having your pantry overflowing with organic products but instead let’s focus on whether going full organic really matters. Let me introduce you to the Dirty Dozen: Twelve additives that you can definitely do without if you are thinking of going clean. And consequently the foods which have high concentration of them. Those are the ones from which the organic choice is a must. The additives are: Nitrates and Nitrites, Potassium Bromate, Propyl Paraben, Diacetyl, Aluminun additives, Phosphate additives, Theobromine, Artificial colours, Artificial flavours, Propyl Gallate, Butylated Hydroxyanisole and Butylated Hydroxytoluene.
What this means is straight forward: you see any of those additives in the package information, out with it; go for the organic equivalent. As for the Clean Fifteen, you can just chuck the following conventional option for foods in the basket, as they retain very little additives for concern: avocados, sweet corn, pineapples, cabbages, onions, frozen sweet peas, papayas, asparagus, mangoes, eggplants, honeydew melons, kiwis, cantaloupes, cauliflower and broccoli.
