NON-GMO Shopping Guide

Get your Non-Gmo Shopping Guide to help you find and avoid GMO.


How to avoid brands made with genetically modified organisms (GMOs) Genetic Engineering (GE) or Genetic Modification (GM) of food involves the laboratory process of artificially inserting
genes into the DNA of food crops or animals. The result is called a genetically modified organism or GMO. GMOs can be engineered with genes from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals, or even humans. Most Americans say they would not eat GMOs if labeled, but unlike most other industrialized countries, the U.S. does not require labeling.

Bistro Carrot Salad
from: Vegetables Every Day by Jack Bishop
This simple grated salad is a standard in French homes and restaurants. A little minced tarragon works especially well with the sweetness of the carrots, but parsley is fine. Serve this salad as is or spooned over some tender leafy lettuces.
SERVES 4 AS A FIRST COURSE OR SIDE DISH

1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
4 medium carrots (about 3/4 pound), peeled
1 tbsp minced fresh tarragon or parsley leaves

1. Whisk the lemon juice and oil together in a large bowl. Stir in salt and pepper to taste.
2. Grate the carrots using the shredding disk of a food processor or the large holes on a box grater.
3. Stir the carrots into the vinaigrette. Stir in the tarragon and serve immediately.
