GMO A Go Go – A Great Short Film About GMO’s

GMO A Go Go

I’m still a newbie at this whole GMO/Non GMO thing. I’m learning more and more information each day and am in NO means an expert.

There’s still A LOT we don’t know about this stuff (because it was never tested), but the more I learn, the more and more I’m convinced I want NOTHING to do with this stuff.

I recently viewed this video via Mamavation’s Facebook page and thought I’d share it with you.

It’s definitely worth the few minutes it takes to watch it to gain more knowledge/information about GMO’s.

I’ve seen quite a few videos on the subject, but this GMO A Go Go from Infomatic Films, is one is the most creative and most straight forward informative I’ve seen.

Even the definition of GMO is a bit scary to read:

A GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans.

There’s a great deal of information out there on this subject, that’s for sure, yet I’m finding it more and more important to be educated about this.

Why wasn’t this tested? Why do they NOT want us to have the right to know what’s in our foods? Can a few large companies have THAT MUCH power that they control our food system?

So may things to think about.. so many things to learn.

As a Christian, I rest in the peace that my God is ultimately in control, but I also don’t want to walk around blindly, trusting man to do what’s best for me.

How about you? How do you feel about this topic? Leave me a comment and let me know!

Thanks for stopping by!

The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World

My family and I have been avid Disney World fans since our first trip back in 1999 with our girls and thank having made the move to Central Florida in 2004, we have been Annual Pass-holders and go as much as we can.

I’ve had people ask us a bunch of times..

when you go so often, don’t you run out of things to do.. don’t you get bored?

And to be perfectly honest, my answer is always no.

Disney World isn’t just an amusement park. It’s a carefully designed experience that is constantly changing and has lots of wonderful mysteries and hidden magic that make it exciting to go each and every time.

There are tons of great sites and groups out there that share all this wonderful magic that is Disney World, but sometimes it’s just fun to sit down with a real book in hand and learn about the Hidden Magic that you might be missing as you walk through the park.

2nd Edition of The Hidden Magic of WDW

Susan Veness had done a fabulous job of putting together a wonderful book called The Hidden Magic of Walt Disney World. Now in it’s 2nd Edition, this book is packed with amazing facts, surprising stories, and signature secrets that are embedded all over the Walt Disney World parks and resorts.

#TBT Recipe – My Stacked Garden Casserole

I posted this recipe back in July of last year and it has been one of my post popular posts. This is such a simple dish to make, yet packed with tons of flavor. 

You most likely won’t have any leftovers with this one. Enjoy.

Last week I made one of those dinners that was a, dare I say, by accident type dinner.

I really had no idea what I was going to make for dinner and all I knew was that I had a lot of veggies that needed to be cooked before they went bad. So I grabbed all the veggies, my favorite big ole cast iron skillet, and without even knowing it… created a masterpiece of vegetable beauty.

First, I sliced up all the fresh organic veggies that we had. Red Potatoes, Eggplant, zucchini, small sweet potatoes, and tomatoes.

GMO OMG DVD Giveaway

I’m hosting a GMO OMG DVD Giveaway on my Instagram account. Stop by today and enter to win!

This is a great movie that follows a concerned Dad and his mission to find out more information about GMO’s !

GMO OMG DVD Giveaway

GMO OMG director and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers. How do GMOs affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice? And perhaps the ultimate question, which Seifert tests himself: is it even possible to reject the food system currently in place, or have we lost something we can’t gain back? These and other questions take Seifert on a journey from his family’s table to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and the lobby of agra-giant Monsanto, from which he is unceremoniously ejected. Along the way we gain insight into a question that is of growing concern to citizens the world over: what’s on your plate?

I’ve actually watched this movie twice and loved it. It comes from a viewpoint of just wanting to find out more information. It’s not slamming GMO’s, it’s just a Dad trying to find out what they are really about, and why the large companies that make them.. don’t want to talk about them.
