Just A Quick Note.

Recently, I have had a lot of people ask me, “Where can we find a list of Non-GMO products to choose from”? To be honest, I have not seen any lists in any of my findings. I have searched and searched, but no luck. However, I do stumble upon lists that have CERTAIN brands that have CERTAIN items that are GMO free. To me, that’s just down right confusing and I would rather shop with brands that I know are completely free of that junk!

I have been working on making a list of completely GMO FREE brands. It’s taking longer than I anticipated, but there are soooo many out there. It’s crazy how these brands were right under my nose. I will put it on my blog as soon as I can. If I find more, I will be sure to let you all know. I may post it within the next few days or maybe next week. Like I said, I’m moving to a different state and it will  be time consuming, so just bare with me. 🙂

I’ll let you know what my favorites are. Then again, all of them are my favorites. This is going to be great!

Eating GMO free foods…is it cheap?

Most people ask me, ” Why do you spend so much money on organic, non-GMO foods“? OR they say ” Why are you so worried about the food we eat? The FDA has approved our food is safe”. My response to the first question is, “Have you priced the cost of cancer”? Seriously. Cancer treatments, the medications you have to be on and all the hospital bills that accrue while you’re getting treatment, really adds up. My response to the second questions is, “I’m worried with all of the food we eat that eventually we will become the norm”. What I mean by norm is, a diseased individual who is just another paitent getting treatments that are toxic to our bodies. It’s all about population control. Call me insane, but they ( the government ) , I think is trying to kill us off. It’s all about them and their money hungry industry called medicine…aka chemo therapy, aka radiation therapy, so on and so forth.

All of this is GMO free. Under $8 for everything. Got some of it on sale!

Now, back to the titled question.

I will be honest with you. Choosing to eat organic/ GMO free foods is not cheap if you look at in the now. What I mean is…pricing cancer treatments and hospital bills vs. food that is way, way less than that, is cheap. Lots of organic and gmo free products are constantly on sale at local places. I have a couple of places that I shop at that have great sales going on and they are LOCAL. Shop, I repeat, SHOP local. You will more than likely get better quality than shopping at a mainstream supermarket. Yes, it is time consuming, yes, it can be annoying, but once you get into the swing of things, it is so easy to do for the rest of your life. You will know all the brands that are dedicated to their names being non-gmo products, so you can shop with ease. In the beginning you will struggle, I promise, but if you are tenacious like I am, you will see fabulous results after.

Places I shop at are Sprouts, Whole Foods, Natural Grocers and my local farmers markets. Where I live, there are no Whole Foods. I have to drive about 2 hours to get to one, however I do have a New Frontiers Natural Market. All of their meat products and pretty much their deli and such is GMO free. How freaking fabulous, right?! New Frontiers is kinda like Whole Foods, except they are a tad more expensive. I get all my meat from them.

I have a handy gadget that I use on the daily to find out if things are GMO free or not. It’s an app on my iPhone and it’s just amazing! I will be posting about that later on this week. I’m in the process of moving to another state, so I may be a tad late on post this coming couple of weeks. It’s called Fooducate.

Stay tuned!

It’s definitely been a while since I have posted anything. Life has been super hectic with me and my move. Ahh. So sorry everybody. I will hopefully be able to post more now that things have toned down a bit.

Alright, so.

I have found an almost GMO free ( from what I have researched) restaurant!!! Oh my word. How fabulous. I recently enjoyed this lovely place with my dad. We had dinner here the other night and boy was it divine. He ordered the Shrimp Scampi and I ordered the Rotelli Pesto and Chicken dish. Both were really good and you could taste the difference. Everything is ORGANIC. I have yet to see a fully organic restaurant and I finally stumbled upon one. It’s a great place for family and friends to gather and dine. The only thing that is super sad about this place is that they are only located in Arizona. If you are ever near Flagstaff, Sedona, Paradise Valley, or Scottsdale, Arizona, do visit this place. You will not be disappointed. 🙂

Stay healthy!
