Organic September is now upon us – in celebration of all things natural we have compiled a list of the Healthy Food Guide team’s all time favourite organic produce, products and suppliers.

Planet Organic – for me, it’s what Tiffany’s was to Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, because nothing bad can happen to you in there. I look forward to popping in for lunch when I’m near Tottenham Court Road, London. The hot food bar is fabulous, serving organic veggie dishes such as moussaka, curries and pastas at good prices – I usually get a small box filled to the brim for £4.99. Then I browse: there’s always something new and loads of offers. My latest fixation is the fermented milk drink, kefir, which is great for good gut health.

Primrose’s Kitchen muesli and granola, especially the new Goji, Black Pepper & Lemon Granola.

For me it’s my Abel & Cole weekly boxes, full of fresh and generously-sized organic veg. Right now I’m trying out the Keen Cook’s box for something a little bit different.

Always on my shopping list are Rude Health Almond Drink (I have it in my coffee every morning), Yeo Valley Natural Yogurt, for breakfast and to use in recipes such as tzatziki, and Whole Earth Crunchy Organic Peanut Butter – I eat it by the spoonful but also love it on crumpets.

Cauldron tofu – I eat tofu a few times a week so I like to try and buy organic when I can. I also buy organic braeburn apples: an apple a day is supposed to be good for you, but when I eat non-organic apples I often have an itchy allergic reaction to the pesticides. And I like to buy organic free-range eggs.
Digital intern Izzy Brimeau
I have an almost uncontrollable sweet tooth so I try to eat organic chocolate – to make myself feel a bit better about how much I consume! Green & Blacks is one of my top choices for something sugary, especially the Thin Salted Caramel Bar.
