My aspiration for 2013 is to eat and live healthy. I badly needed to improve my well being and do some lifestyle changes for 2013. I am aware that I need to eat fresh and eat quality food. I should listen more to my body and give it what it needs. Balance. Super foods. Time with nature. Nourishing my body. Nurturing my soul. Healthy, nutrient dense meals and snacks. Nourishing food. Organic. I should love myself more and know what is good for me. I am eager to find out where I could source organic food. That’s why when I got an invitation from Healthy options with the theme: Organika: Celebrating Life in the Farm, I readily agreed.
- organic corn
- organic Camote
- organic eggs
While eating we were serenaded with classic music by these musicians. Oh la la! How I wish I could play the Violin! #wish
‘Good food grown the good way’ hits Healthy Options stores this 2013 as the leading natural products brand will now offer organic vegetables, herbs, pork, chicken, and eggs sourced from local farmers.
Healthy Options shelves will now carry organic vegetables and herbs that are planted and harvested by hand. Nurtured only by sunlight, pure spring water, and organic compost, this fresh, tasty produce contains optimum nutrients. These gorgeous models walk the runway carrying various organic farm products of Healthy Options.
Healthy Options also showcases livestock-raising in an environment that cultivates their natural behavior and provides a better quality of life. As Mr. Sia proudly claims, “Our animals live in five-star conditions!”
I got excited when I learned that the Healthy Option’s free range chickens can run around and forage for food, and are feed with wholesome grains, organic vegetable trimmings, and wild bugs and insects. Meanwhile, the pigs eat an all-natural diet of rice bran, duck weed, copra meal, fruits, and vegetables, and are raised in odor-free pens, with soft beddings made of soil, sawdust and carbonized rice hull. The stress-free environment allows natural instincts like foraging and scratching. How I wish I could visit their farm!
Healthy Options organic pigs live comfortably, in a stress-free environment that lets them exhibit natural instincts like rooting or scratching. They are raised without antibiotics or growth hormones.
Options organic chickens are allowed to roam free, and are fed on an
all-natural diet of wholesome grains, grass, and organic vegetables. Truly, the animals lead a happy and healthy life, and are treated with care and respect. They are then grown to an optimum weight at their own natural pace before they are slaughtered humanely, and are not subjected to any form of mutilation or cruelty. These practices greatly differ from those of industrial farms, which commonly use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) on crops, and steroids, growth hormones, sub-therapeutic doses of antibiotics, and synthetic trace supplements on animals.
Most commercial farms also practice mono-cropping which leads to higher pest attacks, use additives to hasten production, and cram poultry and livestock in very tight, unsanitary spaces that expose them to stress and diseases.
Healthy Options organic eggs are freshly laid every day and are big in size, nutrition and flavor.
Healthy Options organic vegetables and herbs are naturally grown, freshly hand-picked, and are free from chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
Aside from offering superior meat and vegetable produce, Healthy Options is also proud to advocate farming that does not produce excessive waste or pollution, and results in a healthier ecosystem.
