GMOs in the News
Haven’t done a news update in awhile. Isn’t it amazing, when we started Moms for Safe Food in 2009, barely anyone had heard of GMOs. But thanks to Pamm Larry and CA Prop 37, and Jeffrey Smith from the Institute of Responsible Technology and many others we are finally joining together to get GMOs labeled and out of our food supply.
Monsanto and their biotech cronies keep telling the same lies (feed the world, safe, blah, blah blah) and their starting to use what used to be the liberal press to pass along their lies – I no longer trust Mother Jones or NPR – seems like they’ve both been bought out by Biotech.
Pumpkin Muffins – Gluten Free
I took a break from using pumpkin in our baking after Thanksgiving as I baked a lot of pies. I was looking for a nice muffin to make and adapted this recipe. You could use Butternut Squash as well. They’re delicious and are even better the next day. You can freeze some for later, although they don’t last that long around here!

Here’s a great video remembering Prop 37. We will not give up!
Happy New Year!
Our Favorite Pumpkin Pie – Gluten & Sugar Free
I’ve been making this pie for many years. Recently updated it to gluten free because I’ve missed having it the last few years! It’s still great!
Every fall we make pumpkin pies from fresh pumpkin. This year I grew sugar pie pumpkins in my garden. We roast the pumpkin – cut in half, take out the seeds and put face down on a baking sheet – bake at 350º until fork tender.
Once they cool, scoop out the flesh and puree it to use in pies and other baking. This recipe also works great with canned pumpkin.

Real Food Con All-Access
Wonderful interview with Wendell Berry. He’s talking about sustainable farming and what we can do in the world. Very inspiring!
Great article by Dr. Mercola!
By Dr. Mercola
Monsanto and other biotech companies claim genetically modified (GM) crops have no impact on the environment and are perfectly safe to eat.
Federal departments in charge of food safety in the US and Canada have not conducted tests to affirm this alleged “safety,” but rather have taken the industry-conducted research at face value, allowing millions of acres of GM crops to overtake farmland.
These foods, largely in the form of GM corn and soy (although there are other GM crops, too, like sugar beets, papaya and crookneck squash), can now be found in the majority of processed foods in the US.
In other words, if you eat processed foods, you’re already eating them… and these crops are already being freely planted in the environment. But what if it turns out that Monsanto was wrong, and the GM crops aren’t actually safe…
This is precisely what a number of scientists have been warning of for years, and the latest to sound the alarm is Dr. Mae-Wan Ho of the Institute for Science in Society, who has concluded that, by their very nature, there is no way GMOs (genetically modified organisms) can be safe.
Very good, short video by Jeffrey Smith explaining one important reason that Monsanto created GMO’s. (it’s not about their myth of feeding the world…)
Almond Flour Pound Cake
This was a very easy to make recipe and absolutely delicious. I usually use lemon and not extract, but the extract really gave it a nice lemony flavor. It would be wonderful with berries and cream as well. This recipe is a keeper, enjoy!
