From GMO to BIO

I took this off Facebook today as I thought if you are a label reader like I am you will probably see this and wonder what it is. It sounds real healthy – No it is not.

This is what Sara Hansen wrote:-

OK so this just happened in Australia πŸ˜•
Why would they do this? πŸ™„

Well Bio Fortified sounds alot more natural & acceptable, has a nice ring to it doesn’t it. What would you think if your read that on a label? πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

As a community we have become aware of GMO crops & there is a negative assosiation. Just like MSG which is now labeled yeast extract, yep Yeast extract. Sounds better, more natural right πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

It is our RIGHT to know what we are eating so we can make an informed CHOICE ☝🏾

This has reiterated so strongly why I am doing what im doing πŸ™ŒπŸΎ

To empower people to healthy, fun, fullfilled lives with passion & purpose. Living with connection to family community & the environment ✌🏾🧑

When your quality of life is compromised by our governing bodies taking away our CHOICES…this is when as a community we come together & show we care πŸ™πŸ½πŸ’œ

My Favorite – Meat Loaf.

This is one of my favorite meals. It is also one of my husbands favorite, although I don’t think I cook it quite as well as his Mother but I think that is the story with most husbands. No one cooks like Mum.
This meal is cheap to make, tasty, you can make more than one at a time and freeze one and most family members like meat loaf. It is great with potatoes, corn, sweet potato, asparagus anything that takes your fancy. Per slice it is not too many calories.
If you are on a strict budget this is a great choice. You can put cold meat loaf on sandwiches or in a plastic container with salad for lunch. If there is only two or three of you, the leftovers can be reheated for the next nights meal.

INGREDIENTS
Serves: Prep: 8min Cook: 1hr 5min Total: 1hr 23min
1 pound extra-lean ground round beef
8 ounces ground turkey breast
3/4 cup salsa
3/4 cup soft bread crumbs
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup whole kernel corn
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup reduced-sodium tomato sauce
1 tablespoon reduced-sodium ketchup
1 teaspoon sugar

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350Β°F.
In a large bowl, combine the beef, turkey, salsa, bread crumbs, onions, corn, egg, garlic, chili powder, cumin, pepper, and salt. Mix well. Form into a loaf. Place in a 9″ x 5″ no-stick loaf pan.
In a small bowl, combine the tomato sauce, ketchup, and sugar. Spread over the top of the meat loaf. Cover with foil and bake for 1 hour, or until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the meat loaf reads 160Β°F. Uncover and bake for 5 minutes, or until the top browns slightly. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.

Recipe Notes
To freeze, remove the cooled cooked loaf from the pan. Wrap with a double layer of freezer-quality foil. To use, thaw overnight in the refrigerator. Bake the foil-wrapped loaf at 350Β°F for 20 minutes, or until hot.
