Did You Know? About GM Salmon…

27 Dec

Salmon

 

Did you know that the FDA approved genetically modified salmon for human consumption?

This fish is developed by AquaBounty an American company which in my opinion, has no respect for humans or the environment. Can you imagine the damage that can be produced if these fish get into the wild and contaminate all the other fish?

We have seen the damage that all the other GMO have caused; Obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease. Please say no to GMO, please say no to GM fish, read the labels, ask the government to label these.

Did you know that Monsanto’s GM corn is banned in Germany, Greece and Poland because of the damage it causes to the environment and to honeybees? 

Hopefully we will create that consciousness here in the US and Mexico and ban Monsanto and GMO’s for good.

Food of The Week: Chickpeas

10 Dec

Garbanzo

Chickpeas, also known as garbanzo beans, are high in Vitamins B, E and K, calcium, iron, zinc, fiber and protein. They are great at keeping cholesterol within normal levels and protect against heart disease.

Chickpeas also have antioxidants that protect against carcinogens.

The most delicious way to eat chickpeas is to add them in salads, soups or pureed into hummus.

Hummus Recipe

1 garlic clove, peeled

2 1/2 cups of cooked and peeled chickpeas

3 tablespoons organic olive oil (unfiltered, unpressed or first cold pressed)

2 tablespoons tahini

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

Juice of 1 regular large lemon

Sea salt

Water

In a food processor, first mince the garlic, then add the rest of the ingredients and then, slowly add water to the desired consistency. Refrigerate for at least an hour before serving.
