The wonder word “organic” became a household name as the revolution of healthy eating buzzed everyone in the past years. From food, cosmetics, up to anything that may involve product from nature, people really prefer the word “organic.”
Together with the idea of all-natural ingredients, health-centric individuals really find ways to put chemical-free food on their plates. This starts with the reduction of fast food and ready-to-eat commodities. This form of detox demands scrutinized selection. Some people complain that healthy munches are pricier; think of specialty restaurants for dieters and vegetarians that are located in certain places only.
Genetically modified organisms or GMOs is also one of the concerns. No matter how much we try to eat healthy, if the source of our “healthy food” was born out of a GMO infested root, there will be no escape. So, the best thing that we can do is to ready our own lands for some fruit and vegetable gardening.
Hence, if we will trace generations back where healthy eating was just an easy grab, almost all of their ingredients were grown from their own home gardens.
So, instead of nourishing flowers to bloom in our lawn, why not convert it into a bed of edible plants? Through it, we can fully monitor how we grow our food and can use natural fertilizers and methodology. The size may not be as overwhelming as the ones found in commercial centers but the taste is more genuine, juicier, and healthier.
Here is a partial list of fruits and vegetables that may be grown in tropical countries:
