Weight Loss Tip: Beets can make a good addition to your diet, as long as we are discussing fresh beets and not canned ones. Fresh beets have lots of fiber and some good minerals, but canned beets often have lots of added salt. Try quickly steaming some beet greens and adding beetroot to your salads.
It’s been a mixed shopping bag for food-labelling proponents recently. On Thursday Colorado lawmakers rejected a voluntary measure that would give food producers the option to label food products that do not include genetically modified organisms, or GMOs. Rhode Island is also considering proposals to label foods with GMO ingredients. In the meantime, General Mills has said it will begin labeling Cheerios as GMO-free, but this move could put them at risk of legal action, as most all commercially grown oats are genetically modified. RT’s Perianne Boring talks to Elizabeth Kucinich, director of policy at the Center for Food Safety, about the anti-GMO movement and her documentary “GMO OMG.”
