Buying local and organic food goes beyond supporting your health.
Simple, local, organic “real food” is the natural way of living that goes back to days of old. It's a revolution.
Lutz Nutrition is aligned with businesses, people and clients who feel the power in our growing lifestyle movement as well.
Eco-conscious products, and mind-expanding coaching stemming from a love of the time it all started, the underground/alternative movement that started eco-consciousness, back-to-the-land vibes, organic food, self-development and taking responsibility 'way back' in the 1960's.
(That's why you'll find that vintage nostalgia throughout our site and social media.)
If you're ready to change the world, it starts with you.....
A powerful local and regional food movement is growing: a movement that directly connects consumers with how, where and by whom their food is grown. It brings about a new appreciation for food production and connects schools and our children with fresher, healthier food to feed their growing minds.
“I’ve seen a shift. People who have never been on a farm are becoming interested in where their food comes from. Towns and neighborhoods that didn’t have regular access to fresh fruits and vegetables are getting them. Farmers and ranchers are tapping into new markets and keeping more money in their pockets by selling locally. And all across the country, innovative local food businesses are starting up and staffing up. Local food systems work when we create opportunities for farmers and ranchers, our entire nation reaps the benefit.”
In North America, significant and transformative changes involving local and regional foods is generating returns for the economy and for our health.
How It All Began...
It started in the first half of the 20th century, when modern large-scale agricultural practices began to appear.
The term "organic farming" (food grown without the assistance of man made chemicals) was coined in 1940 as a response in the shift toward synthetic nitrogen fertilizers and pesticides. Then a resurgence in natural and organic foods surfaced in the 1960's alternative health circles, and the wave is back again today as we see it now: “clean eating.” In recent years, environmental awareness has driven demand and conversion to organic farming.
Anyone who understands soil KNOWS that organic food is healthier. It's intuitive. Eating organically grown foods is the only way to avoid the cocktail of chemical poisons present in commercially grown food. Organically grown foods have more nutrients; vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and micronutrients than commercially grown foods because the soil is managed and nourished with sustainable practices by responsible standards. Balanced soil produces healthier plants.
Eating organic automatically protects you from GMO's. GE food and genetically modified organisms (GMO) are contaminating our food supply at an alarming rate, with repercussions beyond understanding. Organic growing reduces pollution and protects our water and soil as agricultural chemicals, pesticides, and fertilizers contaminate our environment, poisoning our water supplies and destroying the value of fertile farmland.
That's just the tip of the iceberg.
