    Wellness Challenge - Eat Only Organic Foods



    For the upcoming weekly challenge, we are challenging the participants to "eat only organic foods." Organic foods provide a variety of benefits. Some studies show that organic foods have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants than their conventionally grown counterparts. In addition, people with allergies to foods, chemicals, or preservatives often find their symptoms lessen or go away when they eat only organic foods. If you are interested in learning more and participating, click here.
