Shortcuts, GMOs, and so on

Short cuts. They're easier, faster, get you to the destination on the "easy route". So what is your destination then? The other day I was driving in front of this REALLY obnoxiously slow snowbird here in Florida (snowbird is the term for older folk who come to FL for our warm winters) and was extremely annoyed, "doesn't this guy know I have to pee?!" Come on!! So I decided to take a side street so I could pass him up and get through the light before him. So I'm in my car, all smug, haha I'm going to beat ya mister! I get to the light and what do I see? The snowbird going through the light and ahead of me. You have got to be joking. I end up right behind him, AGAIN! At a nice pace of 20 MPH I finally turn on my street, pull up to my house and run in. Sometimes shortcuts are a detour that take you away from your ideal destination and end up screwing you over. So...
There is the path that everyone typically follows, or you can blaze your own trail. There is no magic pill, no magic lasers, no extreme way to loose weight in a short amount of time except for eating healthy and moving. It's basic and we all know it, some of us just try to avoid it.
Which brings me up to my next point... Today I logged onto my beachbody wesbite and saw 10 reasons to eat organically! WOOHOO!!! Love articles like this. The author, Steve Edwards, writes about GMOs. Not sure what GMOs are? Keep reading:
You won't have to eat genetically modified organisms (GMOs). A GMO is a plant, animal, or microorganism whose genetic sequence has been modified to introduce genes from another species. Because the long-term impact of GMOs on our health isn't known yet, they're forbidden by the Soil Association Standards for Organic Food and Farming. Furthermore, in order to qualify as organic, animals can't be fed GMOs, nor can they be fed antibiotics, added hormones, or other drugs. It is not currently required, however, that GMOs be mentioned on food labels, so it's very likely that anything not certified organic contains some GMO ingredients.

Appetizing huh? Not really! Read more here about why Organic is not only good for you, but good for the economy and local farmers.

Have a fab weekend!!
