GroOrganic Review and Giveaway

As a mom I like to give my family the best. And when it comes to cooking I of course want to use the best products. I am happy to share from GroOrganic.com their all natural Sundried Tomato and Basil Olive Oil. Now I will be honest, I was skeptical about the flavor when I received the bottle. However I was totally wrong!!! I cooked steaks and sauteed mushrooms in olive oil, and the food was simply amazing! There was so much flavor and the juices of the steak were locked in. I must say that it was one of the best meals I have cooked to date!! ☺ The Sundried Tomato and Basil recipe is exclusive and can be used on a variety of dishes. Toss with your favorite pasta, marinate chicken or beef, as a salad dressing, grilling vegetables and as a bread dipper. (groorganic.com)

GroOrganic.com the companies Vision :
Cultivating healthy lifestyles
groOrganic is a family of companies committed to cultivating healthy lifestyles in every community we serve. Our passionate and dedicated team of Certified groOrganic Gardeners offers their personal pledge of excellence. We believe there IS an economical, healthy way to eat organically. We can provide that and the sense of self sufficiency for you and your family.


Health benefits: The foods that you and your family eat directly affect your health. A fruit and vegetable home garden provides assurance that your food has been grown and handled without toxic chemical input. When you grow your own organic fruits and vegetables, you'll be making a positive change that can reduce your risk of cancer and other chronic diseases.
Most foods that we have been eating come from farms designed to yield high amounts of fruits and vegetables in a short amount of time. The produce is sprayed with chemicals to prevent damage by insects and the soil is enriched with additives to increase the speed of the growth cycle.
Ingesting these chemicals can create serious health consequences. Over time, repeated consumption can cause toxicity in the bloodstream. This toxicity can result in a variety of chronic diseases including but not limited to cancer.
Foods grown in an organic environment are chemical-free. You never have to worry about the impact of these foods on your health. When you switch to a diet that is rich in organic foods, you are dramatically reducing your risk of ingesting cancer-causing agents. Children, the elderly, and those who have already been touched by disease, can make a positive change by switching to an organic diet.
Environmental benefits:

Growing an organic fruit and vegetable garden also helps the environment. It is one way to limit chemicals from getting into the air, earth, and water. Conventional farming uses more petroleum than any other single industry, consuming 12 percent of America's total energy supply. More energy is used to produce synthetic fertilizers than to till, cultivate, and harvest all the crops in the US.
Organic produce in a grocery store is often 14 days old and has on average traveled 1500 miles, losing nutrition and flavor along the way. Selection is often very limited and freshness is an issue due to the absence of preservatives. A properly maintained home organic garden is convenient, fresh, and nutritious.
