Steps to a Healthier You

Now that I narrowed down the four most important things to a healthy lifestyle, I want to take some time to explain each step in detail. The first step is steering clear of GMO foods.  The evidence that GMO foods are a risk to your health is growing.

Many nations DO NOT consider GMOs to be safe. Nearly 50 countries around the world (including Australia, Japan, and all of the countries in the European Union) have huge restrictions or bans on the production and sale of GMO products.  Unfortunately the US government has approved GMO products and has no evidence of the safety of these products.

The good news is that many people have discovered the danger of GMO products and have put together ways to help those that are not as aware. There are a two ways to help you know and find the proper foods without GMO.

  • Buy Organic – If you buy Organic, there is a guarantee that the product you’re consuming is 95% GMO free. This is a requirement put in place by the USDA. For more information on this you can read my post about Why You Should Choose Organic Foods .
  • Non-GMO Project – The Non-GMO Project has makes it really easy to identify foods with GMO. These foods are verified that they are GMO Free.  Simply visit The Non-GMO Project website and you can check if your favorite brands are GMO Free. You can also be sure a product is GMO free if it carries the label below on it.

NON GMO Project

I learned about GMO through The Body Ecology Diet. I’m so thankful that I’ve been informed because I’ve been able to change the foods my family eats.  If you’re still not convinced that you should live GMO Free, check out this great article on The Threats from Genetically Modified Foods.

This is the 2nd post in a series. Click this Steps to a Healthier You link to see the rest of the posts :)! My next post will be about “how to combine food properly”. Stay Tuned!

I didn't realize there were labels to indicate it. That will be helpful!

We used the BED diet for a while for my son with Autism. I loved making coconut water kefir with their starter.
