I Can Easily Find Organic Food at Supermarkets and Groceries
It is no secret that organic food is an important factor in order to stay healthy and
fit. However, nowadays it becomes increasingly difficult to find truly organic food. At
supermarkets you can find products which have good eco-like packaging. It helps to
recognize organic food.
Although it is a major issue, in my opinion you still can find organic food if you
make a little research. For example, just by looking at the label you can determine how
healthy the food is. If the food is truly organic, you will not see ingredients whose names
are hard to pronounce.
Also, here in Madona, Latvia we have local farmers selling naturally grown
vegetables and fruit in small markets. Every autumn we have a trade fair where farmers
sell truly great meat produce. The quality is good and you can see the effort put into it in
order to provide us with quality and healthy organic food. In the summer and autumn
period it’s easy to find organic food at supermarkets like vegetables, fruit, eggs and meat,
but in winter it’s a little bit more complicated.
To sum up, you can find organic food more easily if you skip the supermarkets
and purchase the food directly from local small farmers.

I can do a wide variety of sports at my school to stay
There are various reasons why sport is so important in our lives. Not only makes it
us feel good, but it also makes us strong and healthy. At sport you can express yourself,
develop your coordination. Sport is more than a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. Our school offers
different sports like skiing, athletics, basketball, and many other.
In our school -Madona State Gymnasia- sport is at good level. There are 3 sport
lessons per week, each- 40 minutes long. Every season we do different kinds of sport, for
example in autumn we usually do athletics or basketball at the sports centre. In winter we
ski, or skate. When the weather becomes warmer, we do athletic outside. But that’s not
the only sports we do, we also dofootball, floor ball and aerobics.
The most popular sports at our school are athletics and skiing, because there are a
lot of more opportunities to do it in our home town- Madona than any other sport. For
example- Madona has a really good biathlon track ‘’Smecere”. This track is one of the
best in Europe. A lot of important competitions take place in this track like the
‘’Scandinavian cup”.
Sport is important in every person’s life. It helps us to stay healthy and fit.
Although Madona is a small town, we have great opportunities to improve ourselves in
