I love breakfast! Honestly, a good bowl of cereal is one of my favorite foods. So for Canada’s National Organic (September 19-27), we’re celebrating by sharing our favorite organic breakfast. Thanks to Nature’s Path for sponsoring this post.
Starting your day with a healthy breakfast is critical to your wellness… so make sure that meal is organic.
My favorite organic breakfast is a bowl of Nature’s Path Coconut Chia Granola with banana slices, sprinkled with hemp seeds.
Our food choices matter.
Every time we choose something to eat, we’re casting a vote for what is planted and how it’s grown.
When we choose food made from wholesome, organic ingredients, we’re looking after our own bodies and the soil. So when we purchase organic food that’s grown without harmful pesticides and GMOs and products made without artificial flavours and synthetic sweeteners, we taste real, delicious, wholefood goodness and we take a step towards leaving the earth better than we found it.
Watch this short video from Nature’s Path to see why your choices matter.
