Organic Nutrition Made Easy: Food Products for Healthy Eating

Updated on December 26, 2009

Many people think that eating organic means that they'll have to grow their own food and prepare everything completely from scratch. While scratch cooking and home gardening can be healthy and fun, neither of these activities is necessary to start following an organic approach to eating.

Because eating organic foods is becoming such a popular nutritional trend, many food companies are developing more and more organic products. Once available only in health food stores, more and more organic fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy products, etc. are finding their way onto the shelves of grocery stores around the world.

Organic Canned Tomatoes:

Muir Glen Organic carries a wide variety of organic canned tomatoes and other tomato based products. Additional selections include: a variety of soups, organic ketchup, pasta sauce, and more. Most major supermarkets and health food stores carry this product line. A selection for free recipes using organic canned tomatoes is available on the recipe page of Muir Glen's website.

Other brands of organic tomato products are available. For example, Del Monte introduced a line of organic canned tomatoes and other vegetables in 2006. The Del Monte Organic product line includes several varieties of canned tomato products, including tomato paste, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and crushed tomatoes. Additional selections include corn, green beans, peas, and spinach.

Organic Dairy Products

Many companies make and market organic dairy products. Horizon Organic has been producing a wide variety or organic milk and other dairy products since 1991. The company offers organic milk, cheese, yogurt, butter, ice cream, smoothies, sour cream, eggs, and even egg nog.

Organic Valley also produces a wide variety of organic dairy products. You can download discount grocery coupons for several of the company's products from the Organic Valley website. The company makes several different types of organic milk, including lactose free milk. Other organic products include: cheese, cottage cheese, butter, sour cream, and more.

Organic Fruit Products

Of course, fresh organic fruits are delicious and widely available in fine grocery stores, farmers markets, and health food outlets. Canned organic fruit is a delicious way to enjoy the flavor of your favorite fruits all year long. Columbia Gorge produces canned cherries, peaches, and apricots, as well as several different types of organic fruit juice.

There are also a number of healthy organic fruit snacks. Organic Tibetan Goji berries, for example, have been getting a great deal of attention lately for having amazing nutritional and health benefits. Additionally, several companies produce fruit leathers, dried fruits, and trail mixes made with organic fruit.

Organic Snack Foods

Healthy Handfuls produces a line of organic snack foods for children, although the grown-ups in the family will probably like them just as much as the youngsters. Choices include organic crackers flavored with cheddar cheese and organic cookies in the following varieties: chocolate chip, lemon vanilla, oatmeal raisin, and peanut butter.

Cascadian Farm chewy granola bars are a delicious breakfast or snack choice. Flavors include: chocolate chip, fruit and nut, harvest berry, multi grain, peanut butter, vanilla chip, and more.

Other Organic Eating Ideas

These are just a few of the many choices when it comes to incorporating organic eating habits into your lifestyle. There are many other choices. For example, see my Organic Convenience Foods hub for information about frozen organic entrees and meals.

    I'm lucky enough to live near two organic fruit and veggy farms, so I get my organic produce weekly from there. Whatever I don't grow in season that is. I probably should become the spokes person for organicly grown veggies and fruit.

    Great HUB as always

    regards Zsuzsy
