Happy The Paths Have Crossed.
Was it the trail of roasted pecans and crunchy clusters of whole-grain rolled oats that led you here? Maybe you were looking for a course of good fats and fiber when you came upon delicious omega-rich toasted flax flakes. Or was it the real maple syrup that sealed the deal.
And if you want to find more foods that are good for you, your family, and the planet, here are the signs to look for.
CERTIFIED ORGANIC: Unlike "natural" label claims, certified organic products are guaranteed to have been grown without chemical herbicides and pesticides, and there are never synthetic preservatives or additives. Because, really who wants any of that for breakfast?
NON-GMO: "GMO" stands for "Genetically Modified Organisms". Doesn't sound too tasty, does it? The Non-GMO Project agrees, and their verification assures you that these products are made in a kitchen - not in a lab.
Whole Grains: Foods made from whole grains have all the essential parts and naturally occurring nutrients of the entire grain seed, and the Whole Grain Stamp tells you how much you get per serving.
