Labeling

It’s happening!  As you may have heard yesterday, California is working very hard to get a mandatory labeling ballot initiative through.  Today I received an email informing me of a new effort to demand labeling, please take a minute to sign this petition.

I know it will be a fight but maybe if we all stand strong, we can beat Monsanto and the other evil GM wrong-doers!

Look, I found this!  Obama, you sly fox; let’s sign and make him keep his word.

UGGGGH!!!

Sometimes I get so f’n frustrated with the BS surrounding my food choices and how hard it is to feed myself non-GMO foods!  Corporations can’t be trusted is pretty much the bottom line, so in my mind it is hard to trust even the Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods of the world.  I know you’ve read many a posts where I flip-flop between loving and hating the aforementioned brands.  I just browsed this discussion board: http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?topic=17608&uid=289934516904

I want to scream.  I want to scream so loudly and pointed that the Big Wigs in the offices hear me and do something to help their customers trust them!  Unfortunately even my voice isn’t that loud and I am not in the position to be boycotting the one place that helps me make this lifestyle possible.  I buy a lot of non-organic foods at TJ’s due to their claim of not using GMO’s in their name brand. 

I did find this campaign to ask Trader Joe’s to label their food non-GMO if in fact it is: Click here

Looks like today is going to be day full of more research.  I’ll be back!!

OMG ORGANICS!!!

I know, I know, that’s not my slogan but I’m telling you, organics are taking over!!

Case in point: My sister and I went to Job Lot this weekend and when I passed her standing in the food aisle I said, “What’chu doing over there?” wondering why she’d pursue the food aisle at Job Lot, knowing there is nothing organic in there (too bad because we really enjoyed the bargains we’d find on gourmet food stuffs there).  “Just checking it out” she said, at the same time I exclaimed “Look at this!” and held up a bag of Organic Kettle Brand potato chips – the very same kind we both put back on the shelf at Whole Foods because it didn’t fit into our budgets that week (I pulled and put that bag on the shelf 4 times! LOL)  SCORE! $1.60! here at Job Lot ($3.99 at Whole Foods!!)  Almost simultaneously my sister said “Organic Olive Oil!”. This made me swing over to the first food aisle and take my time looking at each product, to my astonishment they had more (okay, maybe not more but definitely a lot!) organic foods than non! Potato chips, olive oil, chicken, vegetable and beef stocks, ground pepper, all types of cereal, apple sauces, puffed pineapple snacks (odd but cool!), some other interesting items that I have never heard of.  I was amazed!!! I mean a box of Organic Valley cereal was $2.99!  You can’t even get Cocoa Puffs for $2.99!!

I was so excited to share this info with you!!
