Say NO to GM Alfalfa!!!

How did I miss this last month?! The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved the planting of genetically engineered alfalfa, rejecting regulations that the department proposed.  NOOOOO!!!  Monsanto wins again... and the American population loses a little more "real" food and faces unforeseeable side effects.  Genetically Modified Organisms (and now Animals!!!) could be the biggest controversy of our century!  European countries have banned GMOs and will not allow trade of products make with these ingredients into their countries.  (I'm taking that as a sign that I need to move to Europe.)  Do you guys realize how scary and serious this is?  It's threatening my precious Organic Premium Blended Alfalfa, not to mention the food supply of our entire planet...and I won't stand for that!

My mouth dropped and eyes widened when I read this:
"This is great news for farmers who have been waiting for the green light to plant Roundup Ready alfalfa," said Steve Welker, alfalfa commercial lead at Monsanto.
What farmers?!  You've got to be joking.  I want to know what farmers of the world want to actually grow the genetically modified crop.  To me it's like spoiled food!

Also from that same article...
Opponents say biotech alfalfa can contaminate organic crops, and that the increased use of herbicide can strengthen weeds’ resistance to such substances.
Alfalfa is the fourth-biggest U.S. crop by acreage, the WSJ said, raised as hay on about 20 million acres. About 250,000 acres of this, or one percent, is organic.

The vast majority of the country’s corn, cotton and soybeans are genetically modified, the WSJ said.
Now, that's the truth.  When Monsanto's crops contaminate organic crops, Monsanto bullies those farmers to fork over their crops and the profits go too. 

Still not sure what GMO or Monsanto even is?  Please watch this video.  It's VERY important!



Also watch (or listen) to this one to get a MUCH better understanding of the details of this alarming situation with America's Alfalfa crops.



This is our moment! Send a letter to dozens of dairies and food companies simultaneously. Let them know how strong we feel and how MILLIONS strong we are. When they get the message about the coming non-GMO tipping point, they'll realize it's time to remove all GM ingredients, not just alfalfa.

Share this "click and send revolution" with your friends, shop using the Non-GMO Shopping Guide, and tell the food companies the truth about GMOs. And for those who want to do even more, you are invited to join a local or national Non-GMO Action Group, to expand our numbers even further!


Tell Food Companies: Stop the Introduction of GE Alfalfa into your Supply Chain
It's time we let the food companies know that we have new healthier criteria if they want to keep us as customers. And front and center in those new criteria is to commit to no GM alfalfa in their supply chain (which is used as animal feed, particularly to dairy cows).

Please use the link below to send a letter to the food companies letting them know!

Thank you for your support!  Remember to buy organic, do your own research, get informed and talk to others about this important issue.  Most of the population is completely unaware of GMO foods and the consequences they have on our bodies, health and planet.
Safe Eating,

Benefits of Face Brushing

You've heard me talk about Body Brushing and all the wonderful health and beauty benefits that come along with it, but what about Face Brushing? You can brush your face and neck and get the same type of benefits as body brushing delivers!



Facial brushing removes dead skin and stimulates circulation, which firms and improves skin tone. Your skin will become softer and smoother! It's like a mini facial massage every time you brush, a fabulous way to spoil yourself during your daily facial cleaning routine.

In order to do the face brushing sequence you need a small natural-fiber bristle brush. The important thing to look for when selecting the appropriate face brush are natural plant fiber bristles. Do not use the type with plastic bristles because it will not have the same effect. I'm excited to announce that T-Tapp now sells face brushes!

In addition to the Body Brushing Sequence, Teresa Tapp created a special Face Brushing Sequence that has been proven to be effective. …

Body Brushing is also known as skin brushing and dry brushing. It's done using a natural bristle brush, like the T-Tapp Body Brush pictured above ($11.00, T-Tapp.com).

Teresa Tapp, creator of the T-Tapp Workout and author of Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes, has developed a specific body brushing pattern that's proven to be effective for all ages and a variety of health and beauty concerns. Teresa's pattern involves brushing the entire body from the feet all the way up to the neckline. Once finished go back and brush the areas that need a little extra attention, such as the butt, thighs and abdomen. 

It's best to body brush first thing in the morning, when the increased blood flow will help wake you up and the body is in a natural detox stag…

Amazing Eats at Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

Last night I had the most fabulous meal with my sista at Pappadeaux in Atlanta. She's been keeping this place a secret from me! We get there around 8pm and find out that she knows the hostess from way back. (Our buzzer literally went off after about 5 minutes when there was over a 40 minute wait for a table. VIP!)

The first thing that we ordered was the most delicious dip I have EVER put in my mouth, hands down! Lump Crab & Spinach Dip with crispy garlic cheese bread...OMG. I could eat that by itself and call it a night.


I saw a woman with this drink and had to order one for myself. It's called a Swamp Thing made from a mix of raspberry and melon liqueurs blended with frozen Hurricane & Margarita. Fantastic! Brain freeze though.


I hate to admit that even though I'm a Florida girl, I've never had oysters before. She was shocked and insisted that we order some. Her favorites were the Oysters Baton Rouge - oysters on the half shell baked with a Parmesan Romano che…
