Only Organic Swap Challenge: Lunch

If you missed the launch of our New Year’s Organic Swap Challenge, it’s not too late to join in on the fun. This week we are guiding your swap journey with three lunch items to replace with healthier organic options. Learn more about the challenge and organic breakfast swaps here.

Top 3 Organic Lunch Swaps:

1. Meat

  • Why you should swap:

If you’re opting to eat a turkey sandwich for lunch, you should make the switch to organic meat products. Organic livestock must be fed 100 percent certified organic feed. And the land and pasture on which organic livestock are raised must be certified organic, and meet all organic crop production standards.

Our top picks for organic meat are Organic Valley and Applegate.

2. Fruits and Vegetables

  • Why you should swap:

The number one reason to choose organic fruits and veggies is to avoid pesticide and herbicide residues that have been linked to environmental and human health problems. Learn which fruits and veggies are the most important to buy organic using EWG’s Dirty Dozen (TM) list.

Our top picks for organic veggies are Earthbound Farm and Uncle Matt’s.

3. Prepared Foods

  • Why you should swap:

Prepared foods often hide unsavory and unhealthy ingredients behind words like “natural,” “healthy” and “good for you.” But when you swap conventionally prepared foods for organic options, you can be sure you’re avoiding toxic and synthetic pesticides, growth hormones, genetic engineering, artificial colors, flavors, preservatives, and irradiation.

Our top picks for organic prepared foods come from Annie’s Homegrown, Nature’s Path, Happy Family, Stonyfield, Amy’s Kitchen and Beetnik.
