Organic Produce – A Path to Health and Prosperity

Such a great post from our friends at Organic Matters! Enjoy.

Organic Matters

Grocery cart full of organic produceIt may sound corny, but it’s time to celebrate good old-fashioned fruits and veggies of the organic bent. We have been told since we were toddling to “eat your fruits and veggies dear.” We know that eating our fill will give us the finest of fiber and the vitality of vitamins and minerals. Loading up on fresh fare will keep us off the path to heart disease and obesity. If you’re like me, it’s comforting to know you can eat as much as you want and not feel the guilt or the bulge. There is, however, one important side note to this verdant theme. Organic fresh produce is your best path to health and even prosperity!

What are GMO’s and Why Label?

Great article on GMO’s and again, the reason labeling is so important!

Organic Matters

GMO CornI recently had someone ask me to explain what GMO’s really are. What is the entire hullabaloo really about? Why clamor for labeling when we have been engineering genes for thousands of years?

The question made me realize that I can’t assume I have an audience always well versed in such details. Thus it is always good to clarify and cover the basics. So if you already know this stuff, dear reader, STOP READING NOW! Instead, forward it to someone who may not know, share it on Facebook with friends, and give it a tweet. .

You’ll be doing what I intend to do, educate, motivate and activate another person, family and friend.

It’s Time for Transparency: The Consumer Has Been Heard!

As always, a great insightful article from Organic Matters. Truth in labeling, transparency, organic. All things we LOVE!

Organic Matters

Right to KnowThese past few days have been amazing! Years of work fighting for transparency in our food culminated in several very significant wins.  First, the DARK Act (Deny Americans the Right to Know) was defeated in the Senate and then one of the U.S.’s largest food companies, General Mills, and several others announced that they are going to label genetically modified ingredients in all their products sold in the U.S. For all of you who care about this issue, those who have dialed and called, written and tweeted for transparency, this is your week of accomplishment.
