• We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts.
With our thoughts, we make our world.

• Conquer the angry man by love.
Conquer the ill-natured man by goodness.
Conquer the miser with generosity.
Conquer the liar with truth.
~ The Dhammapada

• In fact, everything we encounter in this world with our six senses is an inkblot test.
You see what you are thinking and feeling, seldom what you are looking at.

Superfoods are a special category of foods found in nature. By definition they are calorie sparse and nutrient dense meaning they pack a lot of punch for their weight as far as goodness goes. They are superior sources of anti-oxidants and essential nutrients - nutrients we need but cannot make ourselves.

We all may be adding more salads and vegetables to our diets, but concern over the quality of foods grown on mineral depleted soils makes Superfoods an intelligent choice. For more information on how to use Superfoods in your day to day life please have a look at our our superfood greens and browse the pages on 5 most important categories of superfoods below.

GE Labeling and Food Prices

Source: Just Label It

Despite common industry concerns, there’s no evidence that requiring food manufacturers to label products that contain genetically engineered (GE) ingredients will increase food prices at the supermarket. According to a new study conducted by recognized food-marketing expert Kai Robertson, changes to a food manufacturer’s product labels have not been found to affect the prices paid by shoppers.

Key findings in the study include the following:
  1. Supermarket prices are set by several factors: shopper demographics, brand competition, and store characteristics
  2. Food processors regularly make changes to the labels of their products to meet changing consumer demand or for other marketing or regulatory reasons
  3. As part of their innovation cycle, food companies often redesign and relaunch products, adding ‘new’ attributes to existing products such as different flavors and new ingredients
  4. Brands typically do not order more than a year’s worth of inventory of packaging at at a time because they frequently update the label information for marketing reason
In sum, Just Label It concludes that proposals to change labels of GE food will not affect retail prices paid by shoppers.
