My Food Blog. Designed to help you with your food choices.
When I am not in the garden, I research both gardening and food. I often sit for hours in the evening reading everything I can find about food, the politics of it and finding tasty alternatives. Until recently I didn't know there was a political aspect to food. I now realize that the political influence surrounding toxic ingredients in our food, is of course the reason they are allowed. Isn't it interesting that we feel we have no say in what goes in our food. That it is up to us to wade through the mire and figure out which ingredients sound safe but are deadly...and ingredients that sound dangerous are in fact the Latin name of say, coconut oil.
I figure I'm doing the research anyway, why not do a blog of my findings. But just a simple explanation of why something is unsafe and here is the alternate product. Finding a suitable replacement can often be the most difficult and time consuming task of all. I created a page that lists my hits and misses in terms of replacement products for GMO or toxic ingredient laden food.
