Get your theme music going: "Which of these things is not like the other? Which of these things just doesn’t belong?"

Now look at this photo:Farmers Market tomatoes (2) (317x475)

Which one might be genetically modified?

Do you know?

Would you know which questions to ask at the Farmer’s Market? And does it even matter?

My post at Green Your Way this week is all about my learning process in the category of genetic modification, also known as "GMO" (for genetically modified organisms):

I try to be informed about what I am and am not informed about. A lot of people at Farmer’s Markets are asking the question, “Are these GMO?”

I hate to judge, and I’m honestly so happy that genetic modification is finally becoming a known term in our culture (and has some bad press to boot), but sometimes I think that they are just using a buzz word that they barely understand.

If someone knew much about genetic modification at all beyond, “I hear that ‘GMOs’ are bad!” they would have seen the list of genetically modified food currently produced in America:

I also have a special coupon for Orawellness this month – use KS10 for 10% off Bass toothbrushes and brushing blend (also GMO-free, woo hoo!). If you haven’t a clue what those are, don’t worry – I didn’t either until we learned to brush our teeth like adults.

3 Bites of Conversation So Far

    Katie,
    Thanks so much for that article. Honestly, sometimes I have felt guilty in the past for not caring as much about GMO’s as others, but our family doesn’t eat that many foods that contain them. I am all about the baby steps, like you suggest, and just try to pick one area to really focus on for a time, and build from there. Currently, I feel like I am going “back to basics”, as I recently went back to work after staying home with our kids for almost 3 years. Our oldest son just started football, and I feel like I have no time to do the things I did when I was home full time. So my goal right now is to serve home cooked, made from scratch meals 5 nights a week, and do leftovers the other night. I’m trying to use my crockpot 3 times a week and it’s helping me. Thanks for not being “one of those” that look down on others.

    Ah! I am SO glad I stumbled across your site! I am new to GR and while I know your information is good information for people who live everywhere you also have GREAT Grand Rapids info on here. I am so grateful for you are and the passions you share on this blog! Sometimes I feel that the things I care so much about (GMO’s, natural health care, good nutrition, bad hand soap, natural and SIMPLE solutions) make me crazy because no one else cares! You make me feel un-alone in taking care of my little family! <3 Keep it up and I will keep coming back!
