I came across this article on Huffington Post about GMOs, and it provided some VERY good information on the topic.
I’ll admit that I am not as informed about GMOs as I’d like to be, especially when I want to write about it and speak on the subject with conviction.
As of right now, I still buy chicken from the supermarket. I still also buy yogurt made from cow’s milk (although I’ve been looking into coconut milk yogurt and I’ll admit, it’s pretty tasty). But I look at labels carefully when purchasing soy (tofu, meatless products), eggs, and pork. In fact, I only purchase eggs and bacon from a farmers’ market (what the hell am I going to do at the end of November I haven’t yet considered).
But after reading this, I realize I still have a LOT to learn!
I am trying to cut down my meat and dairy intake and replace with vegan options. I’ve looked at a cookbook called “The Cheesy Vegan” which has all kinds of vegan cheese recipes (including cottage cheese and cream cheese). I’ve tried a couple of them, and they aren’t all that bad.
One of these days Chris and I will settle down somewhere in the Northwest or overseas, and we’ll have a plot of land to raise our own goats and chickens. Until then, the best I feel I can do is read labels and keep the conversation with the vendors at the market alive.
