Life would be so simple if we could, say, have some healthy food once in a while and reap all the benefits of good health. I mean, after all, there are vaccines for which you just need to take a single shot, right? But unlike man-made vaccinations, nature hasn’t designed healthy eating and good health to be a one-time fix. You can’t have just a cup of green tea once in a while and expect it to work its magic.
Healthy eating is a habit you have to inculcate, and then practice every single day of your life to experience the rewards. It seems tough at first, but the good news is, once your body starts accepting the change, it re-programmes itself around the new lifestyle. Hunger pangs and cravings for sugars and fats begin to recede as your body becomes healthier. Also, because you are visibly seeing the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, you tend to feel guilty whenever you cheat. Hence, the tendency to do that (cheat) reduces. It’s like your regular exercise regime – once your body is used to its daily workout, you feel incomplete unless you log in your daily hour or two. Organic and natural food choices are an integral part of good, healthy living. And at 98fields, we give you a vast choice of handpicked, curated organic/natural products. A majority of our sellers are artisanal and ‘small scale’. Their passion is very much an ingredient of their produce. For these foods to work their magic, you need to make them a part of your life. Buying them once in a while, like shopping on a regular e-commerce platform is not something we recommend. That’s why we spoil you for choice with so many sellers and products, so that you always have something exciting to discover on 98fields.
Allow us to be your guide on this journey.
