Check the label twice…

I have been in the health and wellness market for over 25 years and most people I speak with when asked about organic foods tell me they “eat organic”. When you dig deeper I find most people really are a bit confused about the subject. One great resource for staying on top of the organic food industry is “The Cornucopia Institute”.  As stated on their website they are:

“Seeking economic justice for the family-scale farming community. Through research, advocacy, and economic development our goal is to empower farmers – partnered with consumers – in support of ecologically produced local, organic and authentic food.”

Recently, they investigated the organic cereal industry and below is a scorecard, which I believe you will find useful.  I was buying what I thought was organic cereal, a brand I had been buying for years, however that was not the case.  I did not realize a large industrialized corporation had purchased the company and the ingredients were no longer organic and were not even GMO free.  I was paying a premium price and found out that I was not getting what I paid for.  It was an eye opener for me.  Take a look at the scorecard and make sure you are check the label twice.  I will have more to come on other foods in the near future.  For now, use this list to protect your family from harmful ingredients.

Bless you..Pam

Jordan Rubin shared his vision with me….

Several years ago I had the privilege of working with Jordan Rubin at the Garden of Life.  One day we were driving to a TV studio in southern Missouri when Jordan shared his vision in great detail with me about some day owning an organic farm for his family.  I remember thinking “this is some vision” and believed he would achieve his dream.   His passion and intentions were very specific and detailed. He had invested time in prayer and believed he had been given a mission.  Since that day Jordan’s vision has expanded way beyond his family and has has become a reality for others to Change their Diet, Change their Life and Change their World.  As a person who has been passionate about health and wellness since I was in my early twenties, I could not be more excited about the “virtual farmer’s market” that has just launched recently.  I am blessed to have the opportunity to present Beyond Organic products and help others achieve total health and wellness by providing a superior line of food, water and dairy products. At the same time BO provides a vehicle that gives people the opportunity to become financially independent.  

 In good health, Pam
