We had been thinking of organic foods for a while now. As Anshika turned one and started eating everything as we do, we thought the transformation should gear up . Jaishri of Mommyswall had posted about organic foods from 24 letter mantra. This inspired me to take our first step into the world of organic foods. So this post is my haul on organic foods from 24 mantra !
What is Organic ? (From 24 mantra’s official website )
Organic is a way, a habit and a practice all rolled into one. It refers to a way of growing and processing food. It is also about the reliance on an ecological system that sustains itself on rich soil and proven traditional practices to grow crop and food that resists pests and diseases. Organic also means, the farmers dont use toxic, persistent pesticides, fertilizers which are known to contaminate soil, air, water and the food. In fact, organic farmers and farming involves practices of rotating crops, deploying beneficial insects, using locally honed methods, adding composted manure and plant wastes to the soil.
Organic farmers are environmentally friendly. They choose solutions to the pests and disease problems that affect their crops in a way that does not damage and destroy the planet. Their wisdom is proven so are their practices.
What we bought ?
We bought ragi flour and jaggery powder for Anshika , ideal for her porridges . Whole green gram, masoor dal and split yellow moong dal were also bought. I will post reviews on each of these products in the coming weeks.
PRICE : Higher than the usual packaged lentils and flours as I don’t remember the exact price. Will write everything in the upcoming reviews.
AVAILABILITY : I believe these are available in almost all super markets and online too .
