You Are What You Eat Giveaway Hop

As a family, we are trying to eat healthier and greener. Unfortunately, short of going fully organic, that is impossible when we can’t tell what may be in or on the food we buy.  We try to make greener choices in our diet, but today we cannot tell if the food we are purchasing was made with genetically modified ingredients (often referred to as genetically modified organisms (GMO).  We are not calling for a ban on GMOs, but rather to simply let the consumer make informed choices about what they purchase to feed themselves and their kids.

You Are What You Eat Giveaway

Californians are going to the polls to vote on Prop 37, also known as the food labeling law. The Green Moms Network supports Americans right to know if their food contains genetically engineered ingredients and is committed to showcasing natural and organic eating.

So, welcome to the You Are What You Eat Giveaway Hop, hosted by Happy Mothering and Marlie and Me . A team of 20 + green mom bloggers are giving away prizes valued at $20 minimum related to eating healthy. You’ll find giveaways for healthful, natural or organic foods, cookbooks, kitchen gadgets and more!

At this time, 16 countries require labeling of GMOs, including the European Union, Australia and Japan. While food companies may oppose the labeling, this is not a new concept and many already label their food that they send to other countries.

Thanks our sponsor Newmans’s Own Organics, Green Lifestyle Consulting is giving away a delicious organic prize pack worth more than $20 including:

Newman's Own Organics Ginger-O cookie with a bite out
GLC Review of Newman’s Own Organics
  • 2 Kinds of Pretzels
  • 4 full size Packages of Different Cookies
  • 2 Chocolate Bars
  • 2 Chocolate Cups
  • Microwave Popcorn

We had a chance to try a bunch of these and other great treats from Newman’s Own Organics earlier this year.

  1. I absolutely support this measure. We have the right to know what products are GMO so we can choose to avoid them.

  2. I think the labels need to tell us what we are eating. Im sure we ingest lots of things we dont know about

  3. I support it! We need to know what is in the food we are eating.
    Thank you!

  4. i do support it. i think you have the right to know even if you choose not to avoid it

  5. I fully support food labeling… I insist on feeding my family organic natural foods without added dye or chemicals.

  6. I am totally into having food labelled. If they had been forced to do this years ago, I’m sure many people-including myself-would not have put all the crap into their bodies. The industry- and the future generations- need to know what they are eating so they don’t eat crap and do irreversible harm to themselves

  7. I support it. Knowledge is power.

  8. I support it, just because letting us know what we are consuming is the right thing to do.

  9. I support it completely! We need to know what is in our food!

  11. I support it because I want to be able to choose what my family eats, and not have it done for me… We are not children to have things hidden from us as if we are not clever enough to know our own wants … too annoying. Let me make the decisions for myself. LOL..when it pertains to our bodies, the govt likes to think they know best..

  12. I support the idea, but I voted against it. I don’t like how restrictive the law is worded, and I really can’t afford for prices to increase any. I understand that companies would feel the need to pass their costs on to the consumers, but this consumer cannot afford her grocery bill to increase even a little bit. The media has been very misleading on this issue – creating new labels for packages DOES cost $$.

    I’m for the new labeling law because the more the consumer knows, the more informed decisions they could make.
