The 2015 Great NEWS posts are dedicated to sharing Healthy Habits to revitalize our energy, health, nutrition and longevity. Today’s post will share Seven Victory Garden Ideas. With the ongoing controversy regarding Genetically Engineered (GE) and Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) being grown and sold as food it may be more important than ever to plant a garden. GMOs may contain some of the most harmful and toxic compounds we ingest on a regular basis. Billions of pounds of GMO crops and chemicals are being produced and sold each year which may be contributing significantly to the major medical problems and excessive use of pharmaceutical drugs around the world. People are struggling with complications and diseases that may be directly linked to unhealthy foods. Consuming nutrient dense organic whole foods is a key part of being healthy.  This post will share Seven Victory Garden Gift Ideas that are easy to pit into action.

Organic Vegetables

Many people are unaware of how easy it is to grow your own organic victory garden for food.

Many people are unaware of how easy it is to grow your own organic victory garden for food. Foods at the grocery store are often less fresh and healthy since they tend to be: added additives,  preservatives, picked early, over processed, refined and treated with chemicals. When we grow our own nutrient dense organic whole foods they tend provide more of the antioxidants, enzymes, minerals, phyto-nutrients, trace elements and vitamins than commercial and conventional store bought foods.

Grow Your Own Food

Easy to grow foods vary depending on where we live and the weather patterns. In many areas people have a wide selection of victory garden and yard foods like: avocados, beans, berries, fruits, greens, herbs, lentils, plants, roots, vegetables and wild foods that can be grown.

In the southern zone where it is warmer it is easy to grow: aloe vera, amaranth, beets, berries, cabbage, cactus, collard greens, cucumbers, dandelion, herbs, kale, lettuce, melons, moringa, mustard greens, okra, olives, onions, peas, potatoes, sprouted seeds, squash, tomatoes and water melons. Fruits that can be grown include: figs, grapefruit, lemons, limes, mulberry, muscadine grapes, oranges, peaches, plums, and pomegranates.

Discover the amazing health benefits and family fun from planting a garden to eat naturally nutrient dense organic whole foods. You can even make raw cultured and fermented foods with bok choy, cabbage, carrots, Chinese cabbage, eggplant, Napa cabbage, okra, peppers and tomatoes. You can also grow healing herbs (basil, cilantro, dandelion, oregano, rosemary, and spearmint. Edible flowers can include: chrysanthemums, dandelions, nasturtiums, pansies, rose hips and squash.


Consuming nutrient dense organic whole foods is a great way to maintain and sustain our happiness, health and vitality.

Any food you can grow to avoid eating commercially produced fake, fast and junk foods is a good thing. When you grow and prepare your own food be aware and careful to avoid adding artificial additives, chemicals, colors, flavoring, HFCS), Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO), Monosodium Glutamate (MSG), preservatives, sugars and vegetable oils.

Consuming nutrient dense organic whole foods is a great way to maintain and sustain our happiness, health and vitality.

Chemical Fertilizers, Fungicides, Herbicides, Insecticides and Pesticides are Toxic

All synthetic chemicals and compounds used to grow, prepare or process foods are harmful to human health. They are absorbed by our intestines, skin and tissues and result in significant health complications and conditions over time. It is a well known fact that synthetic chemicals and compounds can cause serious reactions, side effects and toxicity. These complex synthetic chemicals,  compounds and  concoctions build up and contribute to our body breaking down with cancers and disease.
