Are you superstitious? Does Friday the 13th make you wake up with your tail between your legs? I’ve always loved it because I was born on the 13th. It’s a great number, and who doesn’t love Friday? Don’t worry I know that it’s not Friday the 13th today, but the last was only a few months ago.
The first Friday the 13th for 2015 was in March, and it was freaky, no doubt. It was the day the GMO apple was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration).
“GM crops and their associated herbicides can harm birds, insects, amphibians, marine ecosystems, and soil organisms. They reduce bio-diversity, pollute water resources, and are unsustainable. For example, GM crops are eliminating habitat for monarch butterflies, whose populations are down 50% in the US. Roundup herbicide has been shown to cause birth defects in amphibians, embryonic deaths and endocrine disruptions, and organ damage in animals even at very low doses. GM canola has been found growing wild in North Dakota and California, threatening to pass on its herbicide tolerant genes on to weeds.” -ResponsibleTechnology.org
Another, more simple truth is, that we don’t know what effect tampering with nature will have down the road. I’m not a fan of genetically modified foods. This new GMO apple isn’t quite hot off the press, but I’m adamant to spread the news. Look out for the “Arctic Apple®,” that was created to not turn brown. This means that when the apple should be showing signs of decay after hours-or days on the counter, it will still appear to be freshly cut. You’ll be deceived and end up eating a rotten apple. Does that seem a bit strange, or is it just me? Not only is it strange, but it’s unnecessary because a squirt of lemon juice will do just the same thing for just the right amount of time.

For a fun science experiment, this apple is fine and dandy. As for putting it in my mouth? I’d rather not. My apple experiences have been swell thus far, and I’d like to keep it that way.

Cardboard crust with ketchup and plastic coating disguised as cheese. Maybe a few discolored green beans. The side “vegetable” was the closest thing to food on my plastic tray. This pretty much describes the pizza, and unbalanced meal I was served in middle school. Remember school lunch? Maybe you have kids, and it’s easy to recall […]
For a while when I was in high school, and in my early college years, I was an activist obsessive. I wanted to take a stand on, well, everything.

I don’t smoke pot, and I really wanted to write about the amazing the couple’s Sensual Food event that my husband Joe and I hosted last week. But all I can think about is pot, so that’s what I’m ready to divulge. As for smoking, I don’t think it’s wrong, I’m actually all about it. […]

Hiking uphill in 85° weather for eight miles delayed this article. Have you ever visited Yosemite National Park? I visited for the first time last week and it was mind blowing. I can’t believe I’ve lived only 3 hours away from this park for over four years. I would have gone once a month, if […]
I used to wake up in the morning with bad breath. It’s embarrassing, actually. Because now, I realize that this is easily remedied. My dad has a very ridiculous sense of humor that not everyone understands. Keep in mind while you read on, that I share this bizarre sense of humor. When I was in […]
What did your grandma tell you about the opposite sex? What about relationships and marriage? My grandma taught me a lot of things that I need to unlearn to be quite honest. Yet, there’s so many things that my parents, and grandparents taught me that I believe was so important. There’s always a deeper meaning […]
When was the last time you were invited over to a friend’s place for dinner? Did they cook? For a few years, I was really missing breaking bread with friends. Yes, Joe and I are invited to friend’s home a few times each month for dinner. I’m not complaining (and thank you to the friends […]
