Going Organic

Earlier this week I attended a brunch organised by Blogs and PR and Birds of Prey PR to promote Sunraysia's new organic juice. I was really looking forward to hanging out with some bloggers, eating yummy food and hopefully learning something. I wasn't disappointed.
The brunch was held at Wray Organic. This place stocks everything organic and also has a small but yummy menu with great coffee. Tick, tick, tick.

The guest speaker was Rob Bauer from Bauer's Organic Farm. I could listen to him talk all day. He is knowledgeable, interesting and a great story teller. Over a 2 hour period we learnt so much about organic food and farming. I am surprised how little I knew. I am a total convert now and I am a little bothered by what I have been feeding my girls. 

The new Sunraysia Organic juices are delicious, I took a bag home and my daughters devoured them very quickly. They love them frozen in their school lunches. I noticed that Woolworth's has them on sale at the moment 5 for $5. What a bargain!
Nothing add, nothing taken away
Check out this video by Sunraysia. I think they really get their point across

Thank you to Blogs and PR, Birds of Prey PR, Wray Organic, Sunraysia and Bauer's Organic Farm for the brunch. This is not a sponsored post.

PS: If you are interested in learning more about the organic way. You can join Bud Organic Club, they are fairly new but will have tips on going organic, product reviews, gardening, samples etc.


FYI: Four of the top 5 perceived benefits revolve around what is NOT in organic rather than what IS:
- Chemical free
- Additive free
- Hormone/antibiotic free
- Non-GMO

  3. I don't know much at all about organic stuff except that it is expensive. That's usually what puts me off :(

    1. It is a little more expensive but I think it's worth it to avoid the chemicals. Even a small step in the right direction makes a difference x

    2. I just saw organic bananas on sale for $2 a kilo! Sometimes the price is pretty comparable to non organic :)
