Wordless Wednesday- What A Difference

I would just like to take this moment and say that I'm so grateful for having four seasons. I've never been so happy to see Spring come along after this cold cold winter.

FrankenFood What?

So on my long journey to living a healthier lifestyle.  I have been trying to understand GMO's and the concerns behind it. I look at a lot of sites, but at NonGMOProject.org this is their explanation on what a GMO is:

"GMOs, or “genetically modified organisms,” are plants or animals created through the gene splicing techniques of biotechnology (also called genetic engineering, or GE). This experimental technology merges DNA from different species, creating unstable combinations of plant, animal, bacterial and viral genes that cannot occur in nature or in traditional crossbreeding."

Yikes now I can understand why the slang name for it is Fankenfood. There are two groups of GMO. One is high risk because its in common food and the second is moderate risk because it may be from cross contamination.

So what does this all mean and why is it important to know about? Well from what I've read the concerns is that it can cause health issues from allergies to certain cancers.

I love corn, potatoes, cheese and yogurt. Between organic and non organic, fresh or frozen, Vegan or vegetarian, GMO or Non-GMO. There is so much I need to learn along my journey in  having a healthy lifestyle.  For a beginner like me it's definitively overwhelming. I think at this point for me I will continue to focus on reducing/eliminating process food and continue to add more veggies and fruits to my daily intake. As my journey continues I hope to have a better understanding of GMO. Also learn to take the time to understand food labels. Most of the time I'm just want to be in and out of the store. The only thing I'm looking at is the price label. 

How do you feel about GMO's?  Do you feel overwhelmed with the abundance of information available?

Pinterest Fun

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter Weekend. Luckily even with my daughter and me under the weather we still had a nice time. The good thing about being sick is that it gave me time to check out Pinterest and add to my boards. It has a little bit of everything.  One of my favorite board at the moment is My Style.  I'm getting ready to use it as my shopping buddy.  If you would like to check out any more boards from style, shoes, quotes, natural hair and many more. You can stop by here.


HAPPY MONDAY!

Let the Sun In

 

 I know this picture doesn't do it justice, but I love how the light shines in through the curtains on a sunny day.
