Pass on Roundup in your cereal and give Nature’s Path a try instead

The latest report on the dangers lurking in our food should be a huge alert to our country.

I know for me the latest which included breakfast cereals with Roundup chemical has been a huge eye opener for me.  For one how is this poison getting into our food and two what are we going to do about it.

I know for me my small stance against these companies includes paying a little more for organic and then documenting and sharing with others what foods are a better option then Cheerios with a side of Roundup.

I also have started emailing the companies that provide safe quality food and thanking them for their products.  It may seem stupid, but in my mind I wonder if we started supporting the good businesses would we see a demise in the pollution to our food.  If everyone truly stopped funding these large companies maybe there would be a change in the food industry.

It’s a tiny gesture but I’d like to think it helps some.

If you are eating processed food the odds are you are ingesting Glyphosate.

I strongly encourage you to take just a moment and read about it.

I notice a huge change in my kids behaviors depending on what they’ve eaten.  Goldfish, chocolate graham crackers, Quaker oats bars are like poison to my kids.  Behaviors almost immediately come to the surface.

It makes me question more of what is put into all these processed foods that are so readily available.  It makes me question what sort of harmful effects this will have on our generation and generations to come.

I am in no way saying food causes Autism, but I am saying that I do believe there is a correlation into the unhealthy ingredients in a lot of foods on the shelves and how could this not hinder our children’s development?

So today I wanted to feature one of our most favorite staple items in our house.

Nature’s Path Organic instant Oatmeal Brown Sugar Maple

This oatmeal is affordable, and almost has some sort of sale to make it affordable for our family.

I think its time that more people took a stance.  Bake some banana bread, start somewhere.  Try replacing one thing at a time.  It’s hard to start a new diet, change a way of living, but it’s worth it.  Why would you want to subjectively eat a daily dose of Roundup with your morning cereal.
