Walmart Sells GMO Sweet Corn
Despite an onslaught of consumer pressure, Monsanto’s genetically modified sweet corn is now for sale at Wal-Mart Stores. Other retailers, such as Whole Foods, Trader Joes and General Mills have all vowed to not carry or use the GE sweet corn. As the country’s largest grocery retailer, Wal-Mart sells $129 billion worth of food a year, giving it incredible power in influencing the food supply chain.
The GE sweet corn is the first consumer product developed by Monsanto that will go straight from the farm to the consumer’s plate, rather than first being processed into animal feed, sugars, oils, fibers and other ingredients found in a wide variety of conventional food. It is engineered to be resistant to Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide. The product is also designed to produce a Bt toxin that will kill insects that feed on the plant.

1 1/2 pounds small zucchini, cut
into French-fry size sticks
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons sea salt, divided
black pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 425°. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or foil.
Arrange 3 pie plates in a row. In the first, stir together flour, 1 teaspoon salt and black pepper. In the second, whisk together eggs and 1/2-teaspoon salt. In the third, combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan, and 1/2-teaspoon salt.

Arrange zucchini, without crowding, in a single layer on the prepared pans. Bake about 25 minutes or until crisp and golden.
Quote of the Week
"I was never very excited about fruit when I was a child because I associated fruit with canned fruit cocktail. I had no idea what an extraordinary exquisite joy it is to eat a tree-ripened peach or perfectly ripe raspberries in my own backyard. I never imagined I would grow up to prefer plain fruit over any other dessert."
