Ok, sensitive subject…Genetically Modified foods (GMO) or Genetically Engineered (GE), they’re the same thing, and they’re BAD for you. Your body doesn’t recognize these fundamentally altered substances and the result is damage to your body. Many studies have found that they can lead to reproductive problems and cancer. And it’s not easy to avoid GMO’s, most of our corn, soy, canola, and sugar beets are genetically modified. Have you ever looked on a label? I can guarantee you at least one ingredient is made with one or more of these items. Unless your food contains a label that says there are no GMO products or you grow it yourself, there is no way to insure that you are eating non-GMO.
Monsanto even introduced GMO alfalfa sprouts and I read that they successfully made GE Salmon, even after Congress told them they were not allowed to spend their funds on such a project. Let’s hope none of us are eating that!

Here on 4 Foodistas, I want to share with you different things that I make for myself and others. Some are personal recipes I make up myself and some are recipes I get from other sources (I’ll always let you know where). I also want to share interesting articles, places, and products that are food related. I focus on fresh ingredients with little processed foods. I believe that is important, now more than ever, with so many processed foods out there. Not only is eating fresh and natural good for you, but it tastes better than canned foods or pre-made alternatives. All foodistas should enjoy.
One Disclaimer: Most of my recipes do not have exact measurements because I don’t really measure anything. These recipes are for experimental cooks or people who already cook.
