    I will definitely be continuing to work on my own challenge to be GMO FREE. I still have that feeling that if something wasn't created a certain way to begin with it shouldn't be altered. I just read about China successfully crossing genes of a rat and a pig to make leaner pork. I don't know about you but I  say no thanks to GMO piggies!

    Kinda sad that this challenge is coming to a close. I have enjoyed it. I plan to try to continue with my daily challenges.

      Me too! I never got around to baking bread, so I'm going to make that up later. My commuting and health challenges fit together nicely and I hope to continue them during a maintain-don't-gain challenge at the gym!

    Really love my new glass water bottle. I didn't realize what a difference glass would make with the taste. No chemical flavor.

      Really love my new glass cider bottle!  Sea Cider in Victoria. Organic of course and I believe it counts towards my fruits and vegetables!

    I think one of the few things I enjoy about fall and winter is the squash from the farmers market.

    Getting closer to being GMO FREE but So difficult. It would be great if we could get some regulations. I want to know exactly what I am eating.

    Got my Eco friendly sandwich wrap. It's called bees wrap. It is made out of cotton dipped in bees wax. It's reusable  up to 2 years or more. Once worn out you can cut it into strips and use as fire starter or compost it. It comes in various size sheets. Love to wrap cheese with it or use as a cover for bowls. It molds to the shape of the bowl with the heat of your hands.

    So difficult to eat all GMO FREE. Mayo is a big condiment in my household and it really is a pain to make because it doesn't keep long. I cringe knowing that Monsanto owns Best Foods and soybean oil is generally GMO.

    I'm thinking I might need to add another one time challenge. I think I have to visit the farmer market this weekend. I really hope they have something good like winter squash.
