Holiday Celebrating With Non-GMO Choices

If you’re like me, you often feel a bit vulnerable during the holiday season when confronted with tempting holiday sweets and foods that would normally be on your “do not eat” list. Fortunately, we have options! There are now an ever increasing number of brands, either enrolled in the Non-GMO Project Product Verification Program, or those that have completed the process (bearing the product Seal of verification). What better way to celebrate family and friends than by ensuring they are eating non-GMO foods and at the same time supporting the brands and retailers who make these healthy choices possible!

Options and more options! Looking for holiday recipe ideas? The web offers many links to healthy non-GMO recipes to make your holiday decisions even easier! The Wellness Workshop offers “Healthy Holiday Entertaining” with great recipes like, Easy Fudge, Vegan Coconut Whipped Cream, Alton Brown’s Moo-less Chocolate Pie, or the yummy Mega Chocolate Mint Holiday Cookies (exclusive for Cookie Monsters). Other delicious recipes can be found at the Earth Balance and Whole Foods Market “Holiday Bake-Off” and at the Whole Story Official Whole Foods Market Blog! What better way than to celebrate with healthy non-GMO foods!

As 2010 comes to a close, we find non-GMO categories from Body Care to Pet Products—the choices abound this holiday season! The Meat, Fish and Eggs listing offers great products from 365, Natural Sea and Pure Country. If vegetarian is your choice—browse the many brands in the Tofu, Tempeh and Alternative Meats listing, oh and don’t forget your Vitamins and Supplements…….and the list goes on! Before making your next holiday shopping list, check out our complete Product Listing.

As the non-GMO brands are increasing, so too are the many retailers, non-profits,  and consumers; the retailers and non-profits committed to  ensuring we have informed choices,  and the consumers who have taken the Non-GMO Pledge ,  ensuring they are making the healthiest consumer choices possible.  See the complete list of Retailer Endorsers.

We have much to celebrate and thanks to everyone who has given their support, time, and effort we have many options!
