It’s that time of January when not all New Year’s resolutions have yet been broken. Promises about quitting smoking or planning a career change are still a fragile reality for some.

“Eating healthier” seems to be a common refrain whenever the New Year is rung in. This reporter was one of many swearing to a 2017 with more greens and less processed food.
A first step to doing this in Yangon is buying produce from one of the city’s fledgling organic food suppliers.
There are not only the obvious benefits of upping your fresh produce intake, but also in avoiding potentially-harmful chemicals.
So – before an inevitable backslide into junk food dependency – Weekend has put together a few options for eating organic in Yangon.

Go Green is a small shop on the northern edge of Kandawgyi Lake. Its shelves and refrigerators are stocked with local produce. Piles of pumpkins sit among oranges, pineapples and ginger.
“Choosing organic food means that more farmers will be able to work on farms without incurring the potential health risks of using pesticides and chemical fertilisers,” Go Green general manager Sai Aung Kyaw Simon said.
“It also helps to reduce pollution and protect water and soil.”
