No GMO’s, No Soy, No Pesticides!

This just came in my email and it only serves to confirm my worst fears of eating Mayo all these years.

Having spent the past several years hunting for an Organic one with no success, I eventually settled on the one with the fewest additives, Blue Plate.

Finding one without Soy did not look likely, at least not here in Central Florida.

But then thankfully, about a month ago, one was found with no Soy in it, and I tried it.

I really loved the taste, better yet, it contained NO SOY!

I now buy two bottles each week, just in case they drop it at my local store, as has been an often been the case, when something really healthy is discovered.

As you can imagine, reading this GMO story today and the accompanying press release study, I was more than a little relieved that I no longer eat/buy Soy Mayo.

Several other stories were in this same email, about the FDA and their attempts to eliminate the already widely approved requirements for identifying GMO’s in all foods.

Am I the only one who is convinced that the FDA and most of big Government wants to force these toxic foods down our unwilling throats, just to keep Monsanto happy?

I remember reading a story not so long ago, about the CEO of a huge Food Corporation, who ONLY eats Organic, isn’t it odd that they will not themselves eat the foods that they sell to the rest of us?

While looking for information about my new favorite Mayo, several ugly stories came up.

Wow, it is absolutely shocking what can happen when you threaten the Giants, like Hellman’s and others with a new product.

They go nuts!

The reason that I bought this new product in the first place, was because it was the ONLY one that did not have Soy in it.

If you know anything about Soy, it is processed, using Hexane, which is a pesticide.

Expeller pressed anything is always the best way to go with foods.

So, today, I have shared with you a new passion, Just Mayo.

Yes, I know it really isn’t Mayo, but that is exactly why I like it, because it is made without GMO’s, Soy or Pesticides.

Two stories on our local news this morning, are reason for Florida food lovers to celebrate, as both involve great food and great places to eat it.

As if they were reading the collective minds of all of their customers, one of our favorite places to eat, Chipotle, has announced that they are now serving zero GMO foods at their restaurants.

Chipotle has become, after living in California for over 30 years, my favorite place here for Mexican food.

They have many excellent, healthy choices of great food that is carefully watched over and most delicious.

This is just a beginning, hopefully many, or all Global eateries will soon follow their exemplary example.

Those in the food serving industry can no longer afford to insult or offend their customers and this latest move by a big chain member, is a positive response for the greater good, unlike the negative one last year by Subway, when they were accused by a Blogger with a terse expose concerning the quite nasty rubber mat ingredient, azodicarbonamide, which was found in their bread, forcing them to quickly back pedal and remove the foreign substance.

This latest move by Chipotle is in keeping with the company’s long time mantra of serving clean, safe, healthy food.

It is becoming increasingly apparent, that when we the people, speak with one loud and clear voice, companies DO respond!

Locally, the trendy and elegant town of Winter Park, a favorite dining and shopping destination for so many, has announced that they are petitioning all restaurants in the town to go  ” Smoke Free.”

The voluntary initiative called  “Breathe Free Winter Park”  is already quite a success, with roughly 25 eateries already on board.

This is a very smart move for all involved, as absolutely no one should have to breathe smoke when they are eating.

Clean air, is better for the consumers and better for those who work in the industry.

My only complaint about this delightful, little shopping paradise, which I find on par with many of the best in California, is the ugly parking situation.

The town fathers simply must find a solution to this, somehow.

Yes, there is a Chipotle in Winter Park on the corner of 17/92 and Fairbanks and once the parking issues are solved and our food no longer has any GMO’s in them, we can all enjoy delicious, delightful dining!
