The Evidence May Show That GMOs Are Safe But I Still Avoid Them

My family avoids eating GMOs.  I can't say we NEVER eat them. We had GMO corn taco shells this week and cookies from a local bakery that almost certainly uses conventional ingredients. A recent trip to a nearby burger joint was what our family refers to as a "crap fest." It was delicious! Healthy? Well... uh... it was delicious....more
Well done, Lazy Hippie Mama.  You're hardly lazy.  I agree with you about GMO food labeling. ...more

Food Was An Addiction

When a mom in my support group (for what, I'll detail in a moment) wrote that she was chronically exhausted and didn't know how the rest of us get through our day and that "even five Red Bulls" couldn't help her keep up, I knew I had to take time to share my path with her with the hope that I might be able to reach her....more

Are You Casting Your Vote for Crap Food?

I recently watched Food Inc and I think it was a great film, despite the fact that I didn’t learn much from it. If you’re reading this post, you’re likely the kind of person who may not learn much from Food Inc either. That’s because we already know how bad processed foods are. We just choose not to think about it. Because we don’t have time. Yet here you are reading this. Go figure....more

Genetically Modified Corn

What are your thoughts on genetically modified corn?  I don’t really have an opinion, as I know very little about it; however I am interested in learning more.  I love popcorn and pretty much everything else that comes from corn: cornbread, corn pasta, corn chips, etc. I recently bought a 2 lbs. bag of organic corn from the farm in Pennsylvania where I order my produce, fish and a other pantry items.  The corn is 100% naturally grown from the farm’s family friend in Indiana….it is not genetically modified. ...more

GMO~OMG~What the H*LL are we putting in our bodies?

So California voters just voted against food labeling of gmo products.  Hmmm, makes me wonder why? In Liberalville USA, where free love runs rampant and pot smokers unite on almost every corner of San Francisco and Organic Farmers are becoming the norm, they rejected knowing what food is poisoned with gmo's.Before the vote happened, I spoke to some people, asking if they were going to vote for it (Prop 37) and ALL of them didnt know what it was.  I explained, the labeling blah blah blah. ...more

Are There GMOs in Your Backyard Garden?

As more families begin growing their own food, fears over genetically modified organisms making their way into backyard gardens mount. Some seed companies have based entire marketing campaigns on -- and even business structures around -- providing a GMO-free product while others have remained eerily silent. Meanwhile, consumers are paying premiums for reassurance on a topic they don't understand....more
Good to know ... thanks for the reassurance!more

Monsanto Claus- A Joe Mohr green cartoon

I love cartoons, but add some greenness to the cartoon and I am tickled green! I especially enjoyed them as a kid. But what kid doesn’t like cartoons, really? Joe Mohr uses his amazing writing and drawing talent paired with his humour to create one of a kind cartoons to get his environmental message across! I am lucky enough to be ale to share 5 cartoons with you over a 5 week period....more
