GMO Free your Holiday with GMOInside Twitter Party

Over 5.8 MILLION people voted for labeling GMOs in California in November. I’m conservatively estimating that the labeling movement in social media created over a BILLION impressions on Twitter, Facebook, blogs, and Pinterest in two short months leading up to the election. I know we created over 150 MILLION impression just with the online events…

Where are the GMOs in your kitchen? If you live in the United States or Canada, chances are you have several sneaky little products in your kitchen cabinet that are full of genetically modified ingredients. Mamavation is organizing a kitchen cabinet awareness challenge to help moms find them. I’m NOT asking moms to throw these…

Armenian Lentil Soup

Armenian Lentil Soup This recipe came to me through my Mother-in-Law. She dabbled briefly with being vegan and as she tried recipes and new ways to eat, we all fell in love with this soup. I always keep the ingredients on hand and make it up when we are sick, busy or need a good,…

Lemon Yogurt Sauteed Vegetables over Orzo

Kale & Bacon Frittata

Did someone say bacon?  Is that allowed?  I say yes.  As long as it’s not with every meal, bacon can be part of a healthy eating plan.  Make sure to pick a brand that is sustainably farmed with no added nitrates.  My favorite is Applegate Organics Sunday bacon.  2 slices = 60 calories.  This frittata…

Get Unjunked Unreal Twitter Party

  What would your favorite sweet treats taste like if you could order them without the corn syrup, without the partially hydrogenated oil, without the artificial ingredients (yes, all of them), without genetically modified organisms (GMO’s), and without preservatives?  And what would you say if you could buy them at the same price point you’re…

Microwave Egg White Omelette

Time. Time in the mornings to put together a nutritious breakfast is something I lack. Herding my cats, (aka getting my 3 daughters dressed and out of the door) before work leaves me very little time to prepare breakfast never mind time to sit down and actually eat it. This is why one of my…
