Which is better: organic or fruit-based
Do you ever question what’s healthier?
Some people don’t know where to start when it comes becoming healthier.
Is it more important to choose organic foods or more produce? Is being fully raw the best option or is being low-fat more important for health? Is being fully vegan or being whole-food, plant-based more important for health? Will clean eating or more exercise result in greater weight loss and a healthier body? Which is more important to cut out of diet: salt or fat?
Fortunately, the answers are here. I’ll supply the answers for all your burning questions about which is better for you: “this” or “that”.
Organic or Fruit Based
In an ideal world, you’d be able to eat all organic and fruit-based if you wanted. Not everybody has the resources to do both in the real world.
Let’s look over the positives and negatives for organic.
|Pros for organic||Cons for organic|
Organic has a decent number of benefits. The most obvious benefit is that it tastes better.
There are many reasons for this. The main one reason is organic farms tend to not mono-crop and use fewer pesticides. Soil without nutrition and pesticides are known to decrease flavor.
The first downfall of organic fruits and vegetables is obvious: it’s more expensive. Fewer pesticides mean more work for the farmer. Pesticides save farmers from losing food due to spoilage and pests.
A major downfall of organic is that it leads to a false sense of security. If you eat organic added sugar, white bread or candy, you tell yourself it’s healthier. That’s false. Processed foods such as these will be no more nutritious than their non-organic counterparts.
Now we’ll look at fruit-based.
|Pros for fruit-based||Cons for fruit-based|
There are more pros for being fruit-based than cons.
A fruit-based diet is highly nutritious. Fruit is more nutritious than most grains, nuts and seeds. Fruits are considered tastier than more nutritious foods (veggies and legumes) because they’re sweet.
As long as you don’t use a dehydrator, most meals are fast and simple. You could spend less than an hour per day preparing all your meals if you ate fruit smoothies 3 times per day. Healthy and tasty.
The main negative of being fruit-based is the volume. You need to eat a large amount of food to be full. It’s not a problem for everybody, but for most people working jobs outside of the home it would be. Transporting large amounts of fresh fruit can lead to bruised and lower-quality food.
In the end, organic does not necessarily mean a diet is healthy, low fat or nutritious. Eating organic meat, refined sugar, and junk foods aren’t healthy. It doesn’t matter if they’re organic.
Being fruit-based is more important than eating organic. Eat lots of a wide variety of fruit to ensure you get the nutrients your body needs. Being fruit-based ensures you eat plenty of whole foods full of everything your body needs to thrive.
