What to eat this September

heartOrganic September is the UK’s biggest celebration of all things organic. So let’s make a small change in our everyday lives, in order to make a big difference to our food and farming.

There are many benefits to buying organic, with food you can trust being pivotal. At The Pure Package, we pride ourselves in offering both organic and ethically sourced, British meat. With this, you can be assured with the knowledge that hydrogenated fats and additives like aspartame, and MSG are banned under organic standards. Choosing organic also ensures a GM free diet.

Now September is here, this month brings a whole new array of fresh fruits and vegetables that are in season and tasting as good as ever.

Savouring the abundant intense flavour of a fresh juicy blackberry for example, straight off a British hedgerow has to be one of life’s classic simple pleasures. Blackberries are in their prime mid September and can be enjoyed in many of our recipes, whether it is our delicious Apple and Blackberry Porridge, or our Pear and Blackberry Bircher Muesli, these would be great ways to kick start your day and make the most out of the sweet fruit this month.

A better and healthier environment can also be achieved through choosing organic. Organic farming reduces pollution and greenhouse gases from food production by restricting the use of artificial chemical fertilisers and pesticides.

Therefore, there are many health benefits as well as environmental benefits that are connected to being organic. So this month it’s time to take a stand and make a change!
Here at The Pure Package we offer a wide range of organic food products, and with our food being freshly delivered daily to your door, there’s no excuse not to take part!
