Can you figure out where I was standing?

Genetically Modified Food (GMOs) have been a hot topic in the food community lately. Scientists have found ways to genetically modify food to enhance the taste, prevent disease, increase quantity and shelf life, improve resistance to pests, or even to require fewer resources to produce the item. Almost every area of food production in the last five years has been expanded to include some sort of genetic mutation or modification of crops. Genetically modified crops fed to beef and chicken means that the qualities of the genetically modified crops are passed on to you through eggs, milk, beef and chicken.

Since I've been on a rampage against artificial colors lately, I've been asked by a few people what our family actually eats. That is a question with a very long answer. If you look at our diets, I guess you could call me Marginally Crunchy Disney Ma, because I’m definitely a foodie and there are some items I’m not ready to part with for the sake of “being crunchy.” My husband has a long list of allergies and an even longer list of food he simply refuses to eat, and our oldest daughter is turning out just like him, sans the allergies.
Regardless of the family member at the table, we do not eat anything with artificial colors, limit artificial flavors and GMOs (foods produced by genetically modifying its origins). The short story is this; we usually do not eat processed or fast food. We’re a very busy family, so there are those extremely rare days when a stop at a fast food restaurant may happen, but even then we try to make better choices, Wendy’s over McDonald’s and Burger King. Super sizing is never an option.
