Hello, world!

OrganicallyBlissful:

We started this blog called Organically Blissful because we want to share our happiness journey in hope it can help you to find your happiness too. Just like many others, we are very conscious about our mind, health and body. We discover the key to happiness is to eat and use organic and natural products that make you feel healthy and whole. Organically Blissful is a blog about improving happiness level organically (the natural way). Organically Blissful will share healthy recipes, organic and natural alternatives, and organic industry news.

Why organic and natural?

When purchasing products, we look for USDA organic certified seals. With USDA certified organic sticker on the product, it means the product has met the federal guideline addressing many factors like a genetically modified organism, soil quality, pest and weed control, additive etc..  Sometimes the package will indicate the product is “made with organic”, this means the product contains at least 70% organically produced ingredients.

 

It may be to your surprise that FDA does not have a definition for using the term natural. However, we as consumers are seeing this word everywhere! If you read the label, which we highly recommend that you do, it may make you question whether the product is natural or not. Organically Blissful believe the definition of natural is our body should be able to recognize what we put in. Meaning, no artificial color, flavor, preservative, or no words we can’t pronounce…

The face behind the blog:

Organic and natural lifestyle are important to me because I truly believe it makes a difference to my health and well-being!

When it comes to eating, I am a flexitarian. I have my meatless Monday and I also have my foodie days.

Zaid: I grew up in Jordan and currently living in Los Angeles. Growing up in Jordan, my food source comes from local farms and are only available by season. After moving to the U.S., I enjoy shopping at the local farmers market to get my organic and fresh fruits and vegetables. I support and enjoy living an organic and natural lifestyle because it is a good investment to your body.

When it comes to eating, I am also a flexitarian. I am also one of those people who read every ingredient on the label to determine whether I should buy it or not. Highly recommended!

I live a very active lifestyle. I enjoy surfing, biking, hiking, golfing, snowboarding, soccer… anything outdoor! I also love traveling. I try to travel as much as I can and whenever I can. There is so much the World has got to offer!
