Kitchen Vignettes with Rachel Parent – Honey Lemon Polenta Cake
By Aubergine from Kitchen Vignettes: “Isn’t it the best when you meet someone who isn’t afraid to take action when they see a problem in the world? And who does it with enthusiasm and optimism? And leaves you feeling inspired and hopeful that we all have the power to make a change if we just put our minds to it? I had the great pleasure of meeting such a person this winter.” Click here to read the entire blog post entry at Kitchen Vignettes!

GMOs Kids Right to Know Walk, Rachel’s Speech from the Walk
THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR BEING HERE TODAY – IT MEANS THE WORLD TO ME,WE ALSO MANAGED TO RAISE ENOUGH MONEY TO PUT ON THIS EVENT – THANK YOU TO ALL THE GENEROUS DONORS, A VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO ALL THE TALENTED PEOPLE WHO PITCHED IN TO MAKE THIS EVENT HAPPEN, INCLUDING MAKING THE GMO-NEWS WEBSITE, VIDEOS, FLYERS, AND TO ELSA AND ELISE FOR MAKING THE GREAT COSTUMES AND PROPS AND TO MY MOM WHO’S BEEN WORKING NON-STOP, FINALLY, I’D LIKE TO THANK JULIE DANILUK (hosts Healthy Gourmet on Oprah Winfrey Network) FOR HELPING ME LEAD THIS EVENT AND DEANE PARKS FOR ALL HIS CONTRIBUTIONS AND FOR MC-ING TODAY, AS YOU MAY KNOW, I’VE BEEN FIGHTING GMOs FOR A LONG TIME, BUT WHEN I READ ABOUT THE RECENT RAT STUDY AND SAW THE PICTURES, THAT TRIGGERED SOMETHING IN ME. I KNEW SOMETHING HAD TO BE DONE. COULDN’T JUST STAND BY KNOWING ABOUT SUCH A BIG ISSUE WITHOUT DOING SOMETHING. ENOUGH WAS ENOUGH! I KNEW WE HAD TO INCREASE AWARENESS OF GMOs AND THE HEALTH RISKS THEY POSE - AND THE TIMING WAS IDEAL BECAUSE OF CALIFORNIA’S PROPOSITION 37 FOR GMO LABELING. THE GMO KIDS RIGHT TO KNOW WALK SEEMED TO BE THE PERFECT WAY TO INCREASE AWARENESS WHILE AT THE SAME TIME SHOW SUPPORT FOR PROP 37, I HOPE THAT IT’S ONLY THE BEGINNING OF A MASSIVE AWARENESS PROGRAM THAT WILL EVENTUALLY PRESSURE THE GOVERNMENT FOR GMO LABELING, PRODUCT LABELS HAVE TO LIST VITAMINS, CALORIES, FATS, AND EVEN IF IT WAS MADE IN A NUT FREE MANUFACTURING PLANT, SO WHY NOT GMOs? OVER 60 COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD LABEL GENETICALLY MODIFIED FOOD, INCLUDING AUSTRALIA, THE EUROPEAN UNION, JAPAN, RUSSIA AND CHINA. WHY NOT CANADA? I HAVE 3 WORDS FOR OUR GOVERNMENT - JUST LABEL IT! AFTER ALL, WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT WE’RE EATING. IT’S FOR MY FUTURE AND IT’S FOR YOUR FUTURE.
