Eating healthy just used to be a matter of eating fruits, veggies, lean meats, and whole grains. Unfortunately in today’s society it is hard to find food that has not been modified in one way or another. I don’t know about you, but I like to know that my food is unfooled around with. The way God intended it to be. I personally try to avoid genetically modified foods. There hasn’t been enough research to determine the health risks that these foods can cause. That is why October is National Non GMO Month.
What is a GMO? It is a Genetically Modified Organism. Basically it is food that is in it’s natural state, unfooled around with.
Are all Organic foods Non-GMO? No! Unfortunately, because of the increased proliferation of GMOs over the last 15 years, there is a growing contamination risk to all non-GMO crops, including organic. Organic products still have a much lower risk of contamination than conventional products, and the organic industry is working hard to keep organic non-GMO.
How do you know if your food is Non-GMO? Look for this seal or visit www.NonGMOProject.org for more information about GMOs.
What is my favorite Non-GMO Snack? Way Better Snacks of course! They are certified NON-GMO which isn’t an easy feat.
