chefchristina Had breakfast on the go most of this past week so it's time to get back to Ayurveda principles with a warm bowl of oatmeal with cinnamon, cardamon, Tumeric and saffron. "At the start of the day, sometime between 6:00 and 10:00 a.m., agni is quite low, and it’s not easy for most bodies to digest a big breakfast. Ayurvedic practitioners recommend an easily digestible meal that nourishes the body by giving it the fuel it needs, without overwhelming it." A warm breakfast of oatmeal does just that. #vegan #Ayuredaprinciples #nourish 1d

chefchristina I totally agree they really do taste like cotton candy. But my question is are they GMO? 1w
  •   ianabendschoen Non gmo! Crazy 1w
  •   dadam108 Nah. GMO means something very very specific to gene splicing DNA of two different species in a lab. Used mostly for herbicide or pesticide resistance by chemical companies for commercial agriculture. Those grapes are just hybrids from selective crossbreeding to get specific flavor traits combined with clever marketing. Sort of like pluots or seedless watermelon. No foreign species' genes in those. There are actually very very few GMO crops that are approved for commercial production. The common ones are Sweet corn, canola, zucchini and summer squash, Hawaiian papaya, soy beans, cotton, and sugar beets. Some of those crops are obviously processed into hundreds of hidden ingredients in our food system. Hybridization and selective breeding by farmers to create new and improved varieties has been done for thousands if years and is a totally different beast then laboratory genetic modification. 1w
  •   plantstrong_mom We love those! They taste extra special when they are frozen. 1w
