Non GMO Verified Foods I Love
I love non gmo verified foods! My son and I look for more of them every time we shop! It’s like going on a little treasure hunt - and believe you me. They are true gems to find! Seeing the butterfly or flower on the label makes me feel good about the products I’m bringing home from the store. Plus, it ensures that I’m giving myself and my son ‘the very best choices’ nutritionally. Of course, we are always searching for certified organic foods too. They outrank conventional foods any day of the week!
NON GMO VERIFIED FOODS
To get a product verified as non gmo, the non gmo project works as a third party that tests and confirms if a food is gmo free. It is a very stringent process and only non gmo verified foods that qualify get to boast the non gmo label.
This is how it works!
"The Non-GMO Project works in several different capacities to ensure the availability of non-GMO (genetically modified organism) products and to help support informed choice. They offer North America’s only third party verification and labeling for non-GMO food and products. They also work to educate consumers and the food industry to help build awareness about GMOs and their impact on our health and food systems".
"One of the inherent risks of genetically modified crops and food items is that they contaminate non-GMO crops and foods through cross-pollination and/or contamination; so the non-GMO Project also works with food manufacturers, distributors, growers, and seed suppliers to develop a standard for detection of GMOs and for the reduction of contamination risk of the non-GMO food supply with GMOs".
Why I Look for Non GMO Verified Foods
About six years ago I almost died. It was after I got better that I started researching intestinal problems and their causes. And I was horrified at what I found... that I’d been eating food unbeknownst to me, that contained deadly herbicides (GMOS) inside them. These deadly products had been slipped into our food system and no one was the wiser. And of course, the government allowed it to happen.
In other words, Americans were being used as guinea pigs – testing Monsanto’s poisons inside our bodies.
I was furious and still am. I detest Monsanto and everything they stand for. What’s even worse for me as a parent, is that BIG ARGI took mother natures products and turned them into freaks of nature. So now we have to pay more for what we used to get naturally! It’s no secret that non gmo verified foods cost more than conventional products that have GMOS in them. But they are nutritionally superior! That’s the trade off!
All I can do is shake my head and wonder why our government betrayed it’s own people. It all comes down to greed and money. Shame on them!
However, until more people stand up and DEMAND MORE OPTIONS, there will continue to only be a handful of non gmo products at the grocery store. But here’s the rub.
Non GMO verified foods taste better. They are more wholesome so they last longer and satisfy satiety better. Plus, I don’t have to worry that they’ll cause an intestinal flair and make me sick again. And the other perk that I’ve noticed is that my waistline is smaller. You see GMO foods cause a condition called gmo belly
and that’s part of the reason that obesity is so prevalent today in America especially. Non gmo verified foods do not!
"Research from the nonprofit Organic Center has found that nutrient levels in modern crops are anywhere from 10 to 25% lower than they were 50 years ago, likely because the crops are bred for higher yields, as many GM crops are. As nutrient levels go down, we have to eat more to get the recommended levels of nutrients we need, which may explain why GM crops led to overeating rodents in the Norwegian study".
There are a lot more non gmo verified foods on the market than those listed here. These are just a few of our top favorites that we enjoy every day!
Non GMO Verified Products I Love
Made from a company called Garden of Eatin, these chia seed non gmo yellow corn chips are exemplary! I buy a bag just about every week when I can get them! They are also gluten free and packed with omega 3’s – something most people today need more of! Just delicious! Find more choices on Amazon here
From a company called Natures Bakery, their fig bars are sure to please even the pickiest of eaters! They are wholesome, delicious, and filling. They also come in other varieties such as pumpkin spice, apples and cinnamon, raspberry, and blueberry and are available in value packs here
. They are much more wholesome than Nature’s Valley GMO breakfast bars!
Zulka provides American’s with non gmo sugar. Their sugar is made from Morena sugar cane, just like the sugar when you were a child. It is NOT made from GMO sugar beets – like most of the sugar’s of today. It’s the real deal! It took me a while to get used to it again though. When I first tried it, it took me back to my childhood but tasted delicious right off the bat. It’s NOT that much more expensive and so much sweeter - so you don’t have to use as much either. Yeah!
Eat Smart provides American’s with a different twist on conventional chips. They are a variety pack made from either non-gmo tomatoes, spinach, or potatoes. They are light and airy and crispy. Other perks include that they are made with expeller pressed sunflower oil, providing people with more omega 3 fats
I’ve been looking for non gmo crackers for quite some time and want to give a huge shout out to Milton’s Craft Bakers for doing just that! This variety is made with all sorts of goodies, including sesame seed, poppy seed, and caraway seed. They are a delight in every bite! You will love them!
I want to thank Jolly Time for making non gmo verified popcorn available. I’ve been looking for this product too. We eat a lot of popcorn in our house. I love that the corn doesn’t contain herbicides and is wholesome! Top it with some grass fed cow butter and you’ve got a special bowl of popcorn to give your family! Simply yummy!
If you like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, you are going to LOVE Cascadian Farms organic and non gmo verified Cinnamon Crunch cereal! Their products are certified organic, non gmo, and have no artificial flavors! Can’t say that about companies like Kellogs and Post that contain toxic GMOS! Think about the many children that eat cereal today! Do them a favor and switch over so you don’t set them up for future gut problems
. It might cost more to buy but the benefits are simply PRICELESS!
We eat a lot of artichokes in our house and I love the fact that Reece has provided the public with the non gmo verified variety. I use them in different dishes and dips! Check out this amazing Holiday Artichoke Dip here
And here you can see some of the organic foods that Lars and I enjoy in our home. The more I switch from conventional processed foods to non gmo verified foods and organic foods, the better I feel – emotionally and physically! And although I can’t afford to buy all the foods I want, I can choose to go back to my Mother and cook meals from scratch. Last weekend I made the most delicious organic chicken, vegetable, and rice soup that was so incredibly fantastic! Plus, I made a big pot full so it’s going to be enough to feed us for many meals to come!
I am begging you to get off of genetically engineered foods! They are a clear and present danger in our food system today – and will continue to poison Americans in a precise and intentional way. Just say NO to GMOS and say YES to non gmo verified foods!
