Today’s episode is a little different from the norm, which is great!
This past weekend we attended the March Against Monsanto in Toronto. At the very least, we need GMOs labelled so we can make an informed choice about the food we eat. We share our thoughts on GMOs and why going organic is essential.
We also share a bunch of gems on green foods and how to get more of them into your daily routine.
