Organic vs. Conventional: What's Best for Your Little Ones
January 13, 2024
At Triple E Farm, we believe in providing quality over labels.
We're not certified organic, but does that mean we compromise on the quality of our products? Absolutely not! In fact, we believe the term 'organic' has been greenwashed and bought out, often used as a marketing gimmick rather than a guarantee of quality.
Side note rant on “organic food:”
Let's break away from the cliché image of the "affluent parent purchasing solely organic items" - that's a false narrative. We all deserve "organic" food, or whatever that implies; it's our inherent right. Allow me to provide some context. Throughout human history, our diet was "organic" until the advent of the industrial revolution, which brought about significant changes in the human diet and lifestyle.
Consuming GMO food treated with chemical sprays, is actually a recent development in the grand scheme of evolution. Our bodies inherently crave and thrive on nutrient-rich, natural foods - the kind that nature provides and our ancestors have been consuming for ages.
Our farm aims to produce exactly those kinds of foods. We follow regenerative practices, focusing on improving soil health, biodiversity, and ecosystem resilience. This goes far beyond typical organic farming standards.
Why is this important for parents and their children?
Because the food we consume is directly connected to the health of our bodies and the environment. Our nutrient-dense products ensure that you are nourishing your children with the best nature has to offer. By choosing our products, you're not only investing in your child's health but also leaving a better world for them. After all, healthier soil leads to healthier plants and animals, and ultimately, healthier people. It’s all interconnected, and at Triple E Farm, we understand and respect these connections
Grass-fed Beef and Dairy: The Healthier Choice
Have you tried introducing grass-fed beef and dairy into your kiddo's diet yet? Trust me, it's a game-changer. They are both packed with all the good stuff like Omega-3s, Vitamin E, and CLA - that help our little ones grow strong, boost their immunity, and even support their brain development!
And the best part? It's not just healthier but also yummier. You can whip up some delicious meals that your kids will love. How about a juicy grass-fed beef burger for dinner or a creamy mac 'n' cheese made with grass-fed dairy? Or even some homemade beef tacos or a hearty beef stew for those chilly nights. And let's not forget the classic: a glass of grass-fed milk before bedtime. Trust me, it's not just about making meals healthier, it's about making them tastier too!
Pasture Raised Chicken and Eggs: A Nutrient Powerhouse
Ever considered giving pasture-raised chicken or eggs from your local farmer a try? They're not just tastier but also packed with all the good stuff our kids need. Compared to the conventionally raised chicken, pasture raised chickens have more Omega-3s and Vitamin E. And it doesn't stop there. Even the eggs from pasture raised chickens are nutrition powerhouses, with higher amounts of Vitamins A, D, and E, and lesser cholesterol and saturated fat than eggs from conventionally raised hens.
Imagine all the fabulous meals you can create! Scrambled eggs for breakfast, chicken wraps for lunch, or maybe a chicken stir-fry for dinner. And let's not forget the good old-fashioned boiled egg as a quick snack. It's all about making meals healthier and fun for our little ones.
Woodland Raised Pork: Savor the Difference
Woodland raised pork is an excellent and tasty choice to add to your child's diet? These pigs are raised in their natural habitat, which results in meat that is not only leaner and healthier but also richer in flavor.
But let's dive a bit deeper into the nutrition aspect, especially when it comes to our kids' development. Pork is a great source of high-quality protein, which is crucial for their growth and muscle development. It's also rich in vitamins and minerals like B-vitamins, which support brain development, and iron, which is essential for their energy levels and cognitive development.
Imagine the delicious meals you could whip up - pulled pork sandwiches, grilled pork chops, or a hearty pork stew. All these dishes would not only be a hit at the dinner table but also nourish your family too!
Organic Labels vs. Real Nutrition
While shopping at the food store, it's easy to be swayed by 'organic' labels. However, an organic label doesn't automatically make a food item healthy. For example, organic junk food is still junk food, and unfortunately many of the organic junk food products on the shelves are marketed to children as “healthy” and they simply are not.
At Triple E Farm, we believe in transparency and quality. We're proud to offer products that are not only delicious but are nutrient dense and nourish your family.
Thank you for choosing Triple E Farm, where we prioritize health, taste, and sustainability over labels.
