Happy Healthy Vegan Needs To Check Their Privilege | Re: Organic And GMO Foods


Weight Loss Tip: If you are trying to lose weight, you don't have to give up the foods you love entirely. Lower calorie versions of your favorite foods are often readily available. Order less cheese on your pizza next time you go out, or choose low-fat ice cream instead of the full-fat variety. Switch to diet sodas or light beer.

Today, I share my thoughts regarding Happy Healthy Vegan’s video about the accessibility organic/ non-GMO foods . Watch their video here:

  1. I have a full time job, just one daughter and I can’t afford to buy organic like I would like to.

  2. Great video and response. I think the biggest problem with promoting the myth that organic/non-gmo is affordable and easy, is that it simultaneously ignores and distracts from the larger problems facing people today: food scarcity at home and abroad, food deserts impacting the economically underprivileged including rural families and seniors, a rickety healthcare system, lack of nutritional education (did you know that even MDs are not required to learn about food and nutrition in medical school), the poor lunch system in our schools, a poverty-level minimum wage, federal subsidizing of the processed and GMO food corporations, so on and so forth.

  3. You can buy dried legumes/pulses which cost around a dollar per pound which would supply somewhat more than 1200 calories. Dried beans/legumes have 300-350 calories per 100g. You do the math 🙂

  4. Mayby there target group are people that have a decent income, like between working an middle class.

  5. Some unorganic foods should not be bought, period. unorganic bananas for exampel, the farmers of unorganic bananas situation is so much worse than the poor Americans. They get exposed to toxins wich cuase infertility and diseases
