Sugar Free Sunday and Non-GMO Month

Welcome to one of the sweetest weekly virtual potluck get-together ever! Yes indeed — it is Sugar Free Sunday! We host it every Sunday to exchange incredible sugar free recipes. Inspiration to start the week right? You bet!

It never stops surprising me, how much I’ve learned about food and what we put into our bodies, simply by blogging about food and hosting Sugar Free Sunday. Kudos goes to Raj for getting Sugar Free Sunday together. Awesome job Raj! 🙂

Recently, I learned something unsettling which should be more mainstream and not something I should be finding out by chance. One, October is the National Non-GMO month and two, US and Canada don’t require GMOs to be labeled as such, even though 80% of packaged foods in this country contains GE (genetically engineered) ingredients! Countries like Japan, Australia and the European Union already have the GMO labeling mandated and even banned in some cases because they are considered unsafe.

The silver lining though is that California is getting ready to vote for GMO labeling and will be the first state in the US.

Here’s hoping we have the GMO labeling law soon, so that people know what they are putting into their bodies!

    OMG! That is unsettling! Glad I live in the UK! I shared my Apple Chutney recipe today, the apples in the pictures are totally organic BTW!

      I’ve never had apple chutney before and wouldn’t have thought of it, but now that I see it, it makes sense! 🙂

      Isn’t it crazy? I just happened to come across it this week after they’ve got enough signatures to put it on the ballot paper in my state!

      You are welcome! Doing the sugar free sunday posts helps me stay up-to-date with whats what in the food world!

      I’ve never had an Orange Julius and that looks divine! Looks like I’m going to have to make a grocery store trip for the coconut milk. Do you think regular milk would do in this recipe?
