The Dangers of GMO Foods: “Genetic Roulette”

Please view the documentary below about the health and environmental dangers posed by the Genetically-Modified Organisms (GMOs) that have been unleashed into our food supply. The film is available for FREE online until 9-22-12 (likely there will be a fee after that)!! It’s definitely worth the time to watch it….and FORWARD it!!!

Evidence is mounting that GMOs cause gastrointestinal damage (leaky gut) leading to FOOD ALLERGIES and a host of other health problems (e.g., excema, asthma, allergies, autoimmune diseases, food intolerances, birth defects, infertility). According to experts in this film, there are even implications for those suffering with Autism Spectrum Disorders. Some of the most common genetically-modified foods include: corn, soy, sugar beets, canola and cottonseed oil, aspartame (artificial sweetener), growth hormones in milk, papaya, and zucchini squash.

Photo Tour of “Certified Organics” at Costco

Not a day goes by without someone asking me where I do my grocery shopping. And most folks are surprised to hear that I do the bulk of my shopping at our local Costco store. I don’t eat 100% organic all of the time, but Costco does carry many certified organic products at very reasonable prices. To ease your curiosity, I took a bunch of pictures while I was shopping this week so you can see what I mean…This is not the entirety of their organic selection, and some products do change from week to week, but this is a fairly good sampling of what I found today…(Click photos to enlarge.)

 

Gluten-Free QUICK Oats!!

About a year ago, I was on the prowl for some gluten-free oats, but I could only find the “Old Fashioned” variety, even online. It was brought to my attention the other day (thanks, Pam) that Bob’s Red Mill brand does now carry certified gluten-free QUICK oats! Yay!

They’re available online, but if you live in Omaha, I did find some at the Baker’s on 132nd & Maple Streets (in the “health food” section) yesterday – WAY cheaper than paying shipping for an online order! I also found them at Whole Foods – regular price $6.99, but on sale now through June 28, 2011 for $5.98! I haven’t tried them yet, but will let you all know how it goes…

I’ll also let you know if I find them anywhere else in Omaha! If you know of another retailer that carries the QUICK variety, please leave a comment below. Thanks!
