Post March Against Monsanto found us seeking shelter- out of the incessant rain at
Tacofino Commissary at 2327 East Hastings- yes we finally made it to the Commissary! The bricks and mortar restaurant of the famed Tacofino food truck- obviously we felt obligated to try as many things as possible- the Brunch Nachos were fantastic and of course the fish tacos never disappoint!
Sunday dawned not much brighter than the day before- we started our morning off with a few cups of Salt Spring Coffee- which is fast becoming the favourite brew around these parts! French Toast made with local eggs and bread by Daddy was served along with yummy homemade Endless Summer jam- the last jar of the year!
We hit the Kitsilano Farmer's Market and stocked up on so many yummy, fresh goodies! Eggs, Radishes, Lettuce, Cheese, Mushrooms and of course a visit to the baked treats lady- so much fresh goodness to be found at the Farmer's Market! Once again in spite of the grey skies the market was packed- possibly the busiest I have seen it ever.
As an individual there are many thing we can do to stop the spread of GMOs- our biggest form of protest is in our wallets- shop smart and buy organic, grow your own food- even just a herb garden in the window, put down the pre-packaged foods- corn, wheat and soy are the most genetically modified foods and can be found in most pre-prepared foods.
