Ohmigosh you guys! There’s an app to help you avoid GMOs and figure out what’s actually in your food, and it’s FREE!
Now, I just found out about it so I can’t say personally how awesome it is in practice (yet) but it’s so exciting that I had to share it right away: Fooducate is available for free for iPhone and Droids, and it won the US Surgeon General’s Healthy App Challenge. (Yeah, I didn’t know there was such a thing either.)
There’s a helpful video on that link that shows how super-easy it is to use (actually, they have a whole Fooducate channel on YouTube) and while it certainly doesn’t come into play at farmers markets and pick your own places, which I heartily encourage you to frequent frequently, it’s an incredibly handy way to make sure the things you’re putting in your body are safe for your body.
(Side note: did you know that we build new bodies on a regular basis? Some of our organs are completely rebuilt on a monthly basis, and most of our bodies are completely rebuilt each year. That whole thing about you are what you eat? It’s literal.)
