Are you eating pesticides?

Posted by Niti Bali on 7/12/2011 to What are you eating?
Are you eating pesticides? Canola oil is the #1 ingredient in bug killers. Are you still using canola oil? If you are eating at restaurants you definitely are. Chick-Fil-A recently switched their oil from peanut to canola in an effort to serve children with peanut allergies. I only mention this because I know many parents consider it the "healthy" fast food option. Safflower or sunflower oil would have been a better option. Organic potatoes for their fries and REAL salt would also need to be considered!! Their volume is also too great to get organic chicken and this is the downfall of their chain. It is so sad really because the rest of their concept is great! 

99% of oil in even the most health conscious food manufacturing companies is CANOLA, second only to their SOY BEAN OIL. This is toxic stuff; particularly the way it is manufactured in the U.S. and Canada. READ YOUR LABELS. Look for sunflower or safflower oil for a substitute. This is now readily available by mayonnaise producers (HAIN). Potato chip producers that are using organic potatoes (Kettle) and other snack chips (Green Mountain Gringo) are as well. Healthy oils are now used in salad dressings (we only use Braggs). Some of the greenest companies are offering alternative cooking oils some of which have apparently been around longer than most of us have been conscious of the need for it. 

There is also a huge GMO Free Consumers Movement as many of you may now be well aware. Often I hear people say that everything in Whole Foods is GMO free and organic. This is false and the Whole Foods employees would never make this claim. They are however, part of a movement in which they have participated in a NON-GMO project and you will find products in their store with this label which is the only one which has been researched properly in hopes to bring you a cleaner product.

The food around us nowadays is far from perfect and the toxic chemicals are everywhere, but the process of finding clean food is becoming a little easier with more funding for legislation to demand clear labeling. You can join the fight for truth in labeling by clicking here

We are still trucking, even if it is just one acre at a time.
