March 30, 2014 by Leanne Vogel April 21, 2017Almond flour biscotti with chunks of crisp pecans and sweetened with non GMO fruit. Served with a side of tart berry-cacao ice cream. The genetic modification in our food supply has come into the spotlight. 5 years ago? It was difficult to find anyone to chat with about the dangers of GMO’s. Now it’s commonplace. The more we chat about GMO, the more educated we will be and the better decisions we can make for our health and the health of our family. Not sure what a GMO is? The Non-GMO Project does a fabulous job at explaining it:
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.I try to live a life as natural as possible. The way I see it, eating foods that have been modified away from what nature intended will not benefit my body. There is a lot to think about when it comes to Non-GMO crops – how to find GMO-free foods, which crops are higher risk than others, the list goes on. So, Natural Vitality (a long-time sponsor of Healthful Pursuit and leader in Non-GMO supplements) and I wanted to break apart each of the areas into bite-sized pieces and open up a conversation about all of this Non-GMO stuff. Today, we start with fruit.
