Margarine vs. Butter? It’s a no brainer!

Margarine can look like butter, is often substituted for butter, but no my friend, it is NOT butter! Margarine tastes nasty…period. I can instantly tell when I’m spreading margarine on my bread because it looks funny and even has a plasticy, fake smell. It has a nasty chemical taste that makes my taste buds angry. Margarine can make even the freshest, warmest, most delicious baked bread taste unpleasant. Do you know the disgusting truth about margarine? Margarine is actually a chemical substance that is made from a process that is terribly unhealthy for humans and animals. That’s why animals or insects wont even eat it, so why do we? Are we that dumb? Not me! I’m going to keep avoiding this stuff at all costs!

What are other bloggers saying about it?

“You can easily leave a block of margarine outside for years and no mold, insects or other animals are going to touch it. It’s a “non-food”.” – swedish-diet.blogspot.com click to see full article

“Margarine is something else entirely, a totally unnatural, harmful and inedible product that is in no way should be called food.” – thetruthabouthumanfood.blogspot.com click to see full article

“Butter wins hands down in this turf war! It is a natural product, and we don’t need a chemical lab in order to make it… any kitchen will suffice.” –  simplypurelyhealthy.wordpress.com click to see full article

Are you going to throw out all of your nasty margarine and start spending just a little extra for real butter? It’s really a matter of unnatural vs. natural. Butter all the way!

Let’s have a non-GMO Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving is in exactly one week! No doubt people are looking for the best Thanksgiving dinner ingredients at the lowest prices. Food prices are not what they used to be and can really pinch the pocket around the holidays. We all know that the lowest priced food can often mean the crappiest quality, which makes room for GMO foods in your shopping cart. Learn about how you can have a GMO-free Thanksgiving dinner this year. Remember just because it tastes good, doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Give thanks for less GMOs in your food this year! Enjoy!

Too bad so sad Mr. Turkey! It’s almost turkey time!

Well the time has rolled around again and Thanksgiving is just around the corner. It’s a time to give thanks for all you have and most importantly, a time to have a massive dinner with your family. When you think Thanksgiving, you think turkey, the symbol of the holiday. Mmmmm… You can just see it now! A healthy slice of oven roasted turkey smothered in gravy right next to the dinner rolls and stuffing. As people are in the supermarkets searching for that perfect bird to cook for dinner, they probably don’t think twice about what turkeys will go through to complete their feast this year.

Most turkeys served at Thanksgiving are factory raised. This calls for severe mistreatment and high risk for health risks in humans. I’d hate to spoil the holidays, but I really think everyone should know the truth about turkey before you chow down on it at the dinner table. I’m pretty sure that it will change your perception of “turkey time”.

This PETA sponsored video gives a glimpse into what factory turkey farming is like at it’s worst. WARNING: This footage may be very, very disturbing!

If you want to learn more about eating wild turkey and farm raised turkey visit the Humane Society’s page on turkeys. If you don’t want to feast on a tortured turkey and are interested in purchasing a farm raised turkey for your Thanksgiving holiday, check labels on turkeys that say this. Try visiting your local farmer’s markets or check local health food stores for more information. Or, just leave turkey off of your plate and enjoy all of those delicious sides! Enjoy your Thanksgiving everyone and don’t forget to give thanks!

Proposition 37 Fails to Pass in California

Well folks, unfortunately the pitch for GMO labeling didn’t get through. Prop 37 was successfully gained  47 percent of California’s votes, but big company names like Monsanto, PepsiCo, Coca-Cola, Kellogg, General Mills, DuPont, Bayer and other food and pesticide companies put forth nearly $45 million to fund the “No on Prop 37” campaign, and won. According to Natural News, this same campaign has a criminal complaint filed against it with the FBI. The campaign was linked to an alleged criminal fraud in which it used a fake FDA quote and sent out mailers fraudulently using the FDA seal. Tisk, tisk, tisk!

Be not discouraged people! The battle for GMO labeling has just begun! This fight has spread substantial awareness about GMOs both nationwide and worldwide making people question the idea of GMOs and what exactly is in their food. In due time, our rights will be acknowledged. We are more than 4 million votes closer to victory. Their secret is out and we wont stop until until GMO labeling becomes a law. Don’t give up the fight! Continue to support GMO labeling!

One more day to vote for GMO labeling!

Tomorrow, Californians have a chance to vote for the basic principle that consumers have a right to know what is in the food they eat. This basic principle is Proposition 37 people! By supporting Proposition 37, we can join with the 61 countries throughout the world that are already making sure that genetically engineered foods are properly labeled for consumers. With enough votes for Proposition 37 from Californians, people around the nation and the world will be reminded that this basic information is something that we all deserve to know.

We don’t want to lose this battle! People on Twitter from all over the world are Tweeting like crazy trying to spread awareness until the last minute to get Prop 37 passed! See how #GMOLabeling and #Prop37 are trending!

GMOs ARE NOT A JOKE PEOPLE!

Would you spray RAID on your food and eat it? Would you take a medication that has a side effect listed as CANCER? Not likely that you would do such stupid things, but this is what it is like to eat GMOs.

Have you ever thought about why so many people are sick and dying from CANCER? Sure people have been dying of disease for since forever, but in a time of constant advancement and discovery of medicines, cures and remedies that sustain life, why is cancer spreading like wildfire? GMOs are causing cancer in humans at a rapid pace. We are literally being used as lab rats to eat the stuff when it has already been proven to be hazardous to living organisms. You may not understand the severity because this isn’t usually the topic of discussion on most news and media outlets. This is something we must take upon ourselves to get educated, protect ourselves and our future. This is information that EVERYONE should know! Don’t be a victim to GMOs!

Why So Serious?

Side effects of long-term GM food consumption include liver cancer, kidney cancer, colon cancer, prostate cancer, breast cancer (for men too), thyroid tumors, Parkinson’s disease, infertility, birth defects, autism and brain tumors. The dreaded diagnosis of cancer has been linked in over 260 studies worldwide to agrochemicals. This stuff is not only bad, but deadly. We need the FDA to regulate and label which foods are genetically modified. We all have a right to know what’s in our food. Help fight for GMO labeling today!

AWESOME music video about GMOs!

If you’ve had some issues understanding exactly what GMOs are, this catchy song should help you understand it better. This song is AWESOME! This video should have millions of views on YouTube, but the lack of views may just be a reflection of the lack of awareness about the issue with GMOs. Take 5 minutes of your time to plug in your headphones and take a listen. This is edu-tainment at it’s best!

Help raise awareness about GMOs by sharing this with your friends and family! Let’s “take control!”

So what are GMOs anyway?

GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) are my pet peeve when it comes to foods that are bad for you. What’s sad is that these are our everyday foods that we consume. If you’re not shopping organics, you’re shopping GMOs. It’s definitely a challenge trying not to consume GMOs because they’re everywhere but you can at least learn about 10 GMOs you need to avoidThey’re bad for you!
