This year for Valentine’s Day make your own decadent sweets that say, “I love you.” Then sit down with the people you love and explain why you’re not joining the millions who are buying the commercial candies.
Millions of people are suffering with infertility, chronic digestive diseases, cancer, autism, and countless other unexplained illnesses. Most of these issues were not widespread 30 years ago. What has happened?
For one thing, Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) have become a normal staple in the American diet. The scary part of it all is that the average consumer has no idea what they really are- and how bad they are for them.
In test studies, animals being fed steady diets of GMO’s showed large increase in pre-cancerous cell growth, damaged immune systems, smaller brains, livers, testicles, partial atrophy (or increased density of the liver), odd shaped cell nuclei, and other unexplained anomalies. They also saw an increase in false pregnancies, and higher death rates. The GMO’s once consumed remain active in the body, long after eaten. They become a factory that doesn’t die, damaging intestinal walls, etc.
The more you read about these, the more you know that you don’t want to eat anything with a GMO in it. So, what foods have GMO’s? First let me show you the top foods made with GMO’s.
Presently the top eight GMO foods are: Corn, Soybeans, Canola, Cottonseed, Sugar-Beets, Hawaiian Papaya (most), a small amount of Zucchini, and Yellow Squash.
This means that anything with a corn derivative, like corn syrup, or corn starch most likely has it in it. This is true unless it says it is non- GMO or organic. Organic foods do not have GMO’s in them. Anything with a sugar derivative has great potential of being GM.
The purpose of this blog post:
Most all Valentine’s Day candy is made with corn syrup and sugar. So, most all is genetically modified. I personally don’t want to feed that to my family with all the side effects that can be life damaging. And, I don’t want you to be uneducated when you buy your candy this year either. If you can afford it, you could buy organic chocolates or you could follow me and make your own Valentine Goodies!
It is more effort and money to eat healthy- but it is worth it. The organic sugars are expensive but deserts are not our daily portion. We’re eating deserts occasionally and on holidays.
For the Valentine Sugar Cookies, I used organic sugar and the glaze is made from organic powdered sugar, organic corn syrup, and all-natural color.
The Macaroons are made with almond flour, organic egg whites, and organic powdered sugar with organic dark chocolate on the bottoms.
The Meringues are made with organic egg whites and organic powdered sugar.
Still on my list to be made before Valentine’s Day are Chocolate Truffles…
I hope you have a happy and healthy Valentine’s Day!
You’ve got to watch the Genetic Roulette Movie–http://geneticroulettemovie.com/ shocking and amazing!
Romans 12:1-3 says it’s important to God how we take care of our body.
“I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
