    (NaturalNews) Suffering a massive market blow after its parent company was
    exposed for funding efforts to block compulsory labeling of genetically-modified organisms (GMOs), the Kashi brand of breakfast cereal is back for round two. GMO Free USA has published the official results of new independent laboratory tests, and Kashi cereal was found to have up to six times higher levels of glyphosate residue than other popular cereal brands such as Froot Loops.

    The Kashi name is no longer what it once was, with the company having also been
    exposed by the Cornucopia Institute (CI) for using genetically-modified soy ingredients in its "GoLean" cereal line. Consumers have increasingly been shying away from this faux-healthy brand ever since, especially as Kashi's parent company, Kellogg's, has proven itself to be an enemy of food labeling transparency.

    I have bought Kashi before I knew about GMO's. I thought it was healthy, too. Then I was only interested in fiber content and sugar content. I didn't know about GMOs then. To think they are comparing Kashi to Fruit Loops.

    I like oatmeal especially. I sometimes have as a late evening dessert. I like grits. But, I never thought of grits as being healthy. So, I don't usually buy grits. My son loves grits, though.

    My favorite cereal, which I intuitively think is the best is Ezekiel 4:9 Sprouted Grain Cereal. I also prefer their bread. Pricey, yes. But, the ingredients speak for themselves. Even the weight of the box is telling. It is not a box full of air. You can't get it at the usual grocery stores. Have to go to "Whole Paycheck". The Ital Diet, the Vegan Macrobiotic Diet, that I am trying to practice emphasizes certain grains that I am looking for on the ingredients when I shop, I have never seen mention of grits though. Might just be a regional thing. The Ezekiel 4:9 line is very healthy. It has all organic ingredients, sprouted grains, whole wheat, barley, millet, spelt, flaxseed, almonds, organic soybeans, and lentils.

    Have you ever tried Kale Krunch?

    This is the tastiest snack food I have ever had. Taste like you are eating Doritos, but it is actually made from organic kale, organic nuts and seeds, and organic spices, different variations. They have 10 different flavors. They are nutrient rich as they are basically made from raw kale. This has been my greatest find of the year! MMmmm mmmm.

    No, never tried Kale Krunch, love cooked Kale though. My favorite and only snack food is stove popped popcorn.

    Grits are natural hominy from corn and full of nutrition and iron:


    Natural Source of Selenium
    Selenium combines with proteins to form selenoproteins. These selenoproteins fill a number of jobs, including regulating the metabolism of thyroid hormones and producing antioxidants. In fact, the Institute of Medicine determined the recommended dietary allowance for selenium -- 55 micrograms daily -- based on the amount you need to synthesize an antioxidant called glutathione peroxidase. Selenium-dependent glutathione protects cells, especially cell membranes, from damage caused by free radicals. One cup of cooked yellow grits naturally supplies 6 micrograms of selenium, while white grits have 8 micrograms.

    Clyde, thanks, that makes sense. I guess I mistakenly equated grits with white rice...LOL You know, white rice, like white bread, white sugar, white pasta, etc, are stripped of nutrition. I don't think I have ever had yellow grits. I'll look out for them when I shop tomorrow.

    You really ought to try Alive & Radiant Kale Krunch. Here's the Nutritional Facts for the flavor I've been munching on today. They have 10 flavors

    OK... A lot of my friends who aren't even into health food have been pleasantly surprised at how it tastes. And, you know the next step up from vegan, is raw...Kale Krunch is raw.

    I love the Steel Cut Oatmeal, too. But, I usually get regular Quaker's Old Fashioned Oatmeal, because it is cheaper. I do not like instant Oatmeal. I always experiment adding different things to my oatmeal. Different combinations, like apples and cinnamon, nuts and berries, banana slices, peanut butter, or a little 100% maple syrup, Silk Vanilla Soy Milk. And, I never get tired of it. One thing I do that I need to stop doing is adding butter. I call it "my Oatmeal Cookie in a bowl"

    The meal plan, the one I am following to the best of my ability, forbids all meat, poultry, and meat by products, including butter, cheese, cow's milk, eggs, etc., ....butter has been my weakness. I forgive myself for not being perfect. But, I am getting better at it everyday. And, I am seeing visible positive results of my efforts.
