REAL FOOD Friday #13 with a Special Reminder

Hello and Welcome to another REAL Food Friday! 
***PLEASE Read this before linking***
This NOT a place to share fashion posts, other link-ups or sugar-laden
chemically preserved junk food.  These types of posts will be deleted.

Last week I was seriously frustrated but that's totally me.  Everyday I share with more and more people about the dangerous effects of GMOs.  But I'm just one person and while I'm not completely GMO-free yet, I and trying my best everyday.
Since 1910 the world has LOST over 93% of all seed varieties

I've been busy blogging about the GMO fight:
Last week I sent out another informational e-newsletter "What is a GMO?" and it's a big hit so far.  Sign up here

I have no features this week.  I am getting ready for my last workshop of 2013.  Wish me luck!!!

In case you missed "What is Real Food" here's a recap...
I know "Real" food may not seem like as much fun as the sugary, chemically, DIY recipes out there on the internet.  This is why REAL Food Friday is so unique.  This is the place to share your unprocessed, gmo-free, locally grown and/or fair trade posts.
We are trying to make a difference 1 recipe at a time!
Here's a great reference from Food Myths:
Do you ever think about how far the food you eat travels?  Who grew it?  Who picked it? How much in processing it's been through before you took a bite?
