Vote With Your Wallet

    A few weeks ago, Chipotle announced an exciting commitment to serve food made with non GMO ingredients.  On May 6, 2015, the Wall Street Journal reported that Panera Bread Co has said to have committed itself to removing at least 150 artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors and preservatives from its menu by the end of next year. (It's already cut sucralose, an artificial sweetener and titanium dioxide, used to whiten mozzarella cheese. The article goes on to say that this move will apply to soups, salad dressings, sandwiches and baked goods.  

     My feedback on this?  It's a good thing! As consumers continue to "push back" by spending their hard earned dollars on healthier food, more companies will have to meet their demands in order to stay competitive. Remember- you cast your vote for healthy food with every dollar you spend. So I encourage you to use your power to change things for the better health and wellness your family wants.
