March Against Monsanto – Springfield, MO

It was really awesome to be a part of the March Against Monsanto yesterday in Springfield, MO. I was surprised and delighted to see at least 250 – 300 people show up there to march in protest of GENETICALLY MODIFIED “foods”. Getting together with folks in support of a brighter future and to make a statement is a powerful and inspiring thing. Hopefully it rings a bell in the minds of other people who didn’t have a clue before.

Of course the ONLY true way to stop the spread of Monsanto and other GMO companies, is to STOP SUPPORTING THEM with your money! Almost everything available at most grocery stores contain GMO ingredients that are hidden behind names like high fructose corn syrup, natural flavors, citric acid, aspartame, soy lecithin, rennet in hard cheeses, etc etc… the list is LOOOONG. So how do you avoid that? KNOW YOUR FARMER!! If you know who is growing the food that you eat, you have the ability to find out what they are feeding their animals and how they raise their plants. Stop eating prepared foods and start preparing your own foods from WHOLE ingredients.

GROW YOUR OWN FOOD.
SHOP LOCAL
KNOW YOUR FARMER

This is the only way to truly defeat Monsanto and the other GMO Giants.

Christie Aphrodite is the voice and beautiful face behind Soul Journeys Radio. She is a fabulous friend of mine and a total activist on the local food and natural whole body healing front. In the video below she talks about the importance of standing up against Monsanto and GMO foods with your lifestyle every single day, instead of just ranting and raging that companies should label food. Yeah, it would be nice for these killer corporations to do something compassionate for the good of the people, but let’s be real here… that probably isn’t going to happen anytime soon! So stop waiting and start making educated choices about your food!!

Blogging for GMO Awareness !!

From new friendships come amazing new opportunities and adventures! Every situation can shine a light on something new and direct us in a different, exciting direction.

I recently met a very inspirational friend online, a writer by the name of Michael Kinnaird. He found my blog and we really hit it off from the start. He shares my deep passion for living a harmonious life with our Mama Earth, growing our own food, respecting our resources, and motivating people to walk a natural path in their life. He is the author of Habit Guide, a guide to being happy and healthy…. and little did I know at the time, he is one of the masterminds behind GMO Awareness.

You may have heard of GMO Awareness on Facebook where they have over 11,000 likes.I was following their FB page long before I knew who Michael Kinnaird was! Moving onto the point of my story and what I’m so excited about… Michael has asked me to write for GMO Awareness! I was so thrilled I wrote my first article right away and it is full of awesome information! Check it out and give it some love.

How to Keep Monsanto Out of Your Home Garden

Writing is something that has always come naturally to me, and writing about my passions and beliefs is what I love more than anything. To write for this amazing effort of enlightening people to the truths of GMO is a task that I’m thrilled to commit time to! I feel like this is the beginning of something wonderful for me… not sure exactly what is yet, but I believe it involves writing and sharing knowledge and power with others. I’ll keep you posted as I go along on my journey. 🙂

PS. It’s snowing outside my window in the beginning of May in Missouri. Is this an Ice Age?
