Celebrate National Organic Week (Giveaway - CLOSED)


It's Canada's National Organic Week (September 19 to 27), the largest annual celebration of organic food, farming and organic products across the country. I prefer to buy organic whenever availability and finances permit. My son went through a period during which he thought "organic" was a dirty word, something along the lines of "spinach" or "kale."


Now that he is older he knows that organic is all about producing our food without the use of chemical pesticides, GMOs and other things that can be harmful to ourselves and our earth. He now knows that organic is not just about fruits and vegetables, but also snacks that are produced with more natural ingredients - snacks that are free of artificial flavours and synthetic sweeteners.

Like one of our family faves, above, Envirokidz Peanut Butter Panda Puffs Cereal. Although they are meant for kids, I like to munch on small bowls of Panda Puffs with or without non-dairy milk. They are certified organic and gluten free.


In celebration of Canada's National Organic Week I received a box of organic goodies. There were several products that I purchase regularly, as well as a few that are new to me. This PRANA Kilimanjaro Organic Deluxe Chocolate Trail Mix has vegan chocolate chunks as the first ingredient, plus a satisfying mix of walnuts, salted almonds, cashews, sultana raisins and naturally sweetened cranberries.


With the arrival of fall, I was excited to sample Camino's Simply Dark Hot Chocolate, which is dairy free and actually contains real dark chocolate! (I popped some vegan marshmallows in my cup for added decadence!)

Canada's National Organic Week reminds us that what we choose to eat has an effect on our world and our future choices. Every time you choose an organic product you send the message that you care how your food is grown. Wholesome, organic ingredients are healthier for you and our environment.
