The end of January is here and I hope everyone is striving towards their personal goals. My major goal is to cut out GMOs from my life and while this is a real challenge I can at least cut them out dramatically. I pride myself in using non-GMO ingredients (and when I can, organic) when baking, but my sweet tooth makes it difficult. While I do not eat candy or junk food, not every restaurant feels so strongly on the GMO debate – thus leaving me unaware of the quality of ingredients they are using. This creates a challenging dilemma, but thankfully there’s the Non-GMO Project and other amazing organizations that help keep us aware.
Not sure what GMOs are? Here’s a fun video explaining them:
There are a number of studies that highlight the benefits of organic produce, so this post is not going to preach about the subject – Google has you covered. However, I will share a video that has been causing a lot of discussion on the internet the past few weeks. After watching it you can decide what is right for you…
Another year has passed and we are left to evaluate what we have accomplished as well as our shortcomings. The new year brings many fresh challenges, but also allows us to pick up the pieces from last year to build a better vision. In 2013, I had the pleasure of many talented and passionate people. There is something to be said about the motivation we all have. It comes in different shapes and sizes, but our motivation is unique to us and it is something to be treasured. So without rambling on, I say let’s make 2014 the year of action. Let’s use our excitement to write down our ideas and our motivation to make them happen. I wish everyone a happy new year and I look forward to see everything we accomplish.
