Welcome to a Secret Subject Swap. This week, 12 brave bloggers picked a secret subject for someone else and were assigned a secret subject to interpret in their own style. Today we are all simultaneously divulging our topics and submitting our posts.
Here are links to all the sites now featuring Secret Subject Swap posts. Sit back, grab a cup, and check them all out. See you there:
My subject is “You get stranded on an uninhabited, tropical island with little/no amenities. How do you survive?”. It was submitted by http://www.someoneelsesgenius.com Here goes:
We are going to Florida this summer, when? Well you will find out after we return. I am too nervous to post about being stranded. I tried to come up with some cute stories…but just couldn’t. Instead I wrote about what I would eat…
I think we should start eating like we ARE living on a deserted island. We should start living and eating like we did BEFORE companies started creating chemicals and poisons that are hidden in the “food” they sell. Yes, I was a mom who had countless coupons and would smile with glee when I could buy almost everything with coupons. The faster, easier, and cheaper the “food” products were, the more I would buy. But then my eyes were opened to the dangers.
In just a short time I feel better, my hair dresser said my hair is super shiny, my occasional acne is clearing up, my stomach issues are slowly disappearing. I used to think I could never eat nuts…now I can’t live without almonds, cashews, walnuts, and granola. I used to think those foods made me sick, but in reality it was the low fat, fat free, and processed foods that were making me sick.
People are fighting companies to list all the GMO genetically modified ingredients in the products they sell. We are fighting for them to admit they are selling poisons and creating allergies and diseases at an alarming rate. Yes, people who buy the products and fast foods are responsible. But when so are the companies who promote to little kids and overload you with their marketing. Just like the cigarette companies tried to make smokers believe cigarettes were safe, that is what GMO food production companies are doing.
Vermont is being sued by the Grocery Manufacturers Association because they passed a law regarding NON-GMO foods in their state. Food companies can submit all the tests they want. The simple fact is…if GMOs are safe, why aren’t they promoted and listed on packages. These companies are all bullies and loving that people are willingly buying these fake foods.
If I could, I would grow my own food. Instead I buy organic, local, and NON-GMO food. Instead I make sure Dino knows the NON-GMO verified label and the USDA Organics label. Instead I make sure that Dino eats real foods, not the fake natural label that is used to trick consumers.
Don’t get me wrong…there are MANY frozen foods, almond and coconut ice creams, desserts, and snacks we eat…I don’t deprive myself, I just make sure they are NON-GMO verified. I can’t stand the taste of fake foods, it’s horribly obvious and leaves me feeling icky. You soon realize what real food tastes like and wonder what you have really been eating.
Imagine how fit I would be too…there would be no TV, no computers, no reason to sit on our butts. We would have to always be working and moving…seems like the more technology and conveniences we have, the unhealthier we get. Imagine if
