For people with allergies and food intollerances there are a lot more food products that give us more options. Also don't be shy in speaking with the manager of a grocery store and asking for a product. Some grocery stores have suggestion boxes as well. (I routinely ask that Price Mart starting carrying Vegannaise and I try and disguise my hand writing so it doesn't look like it's the same person- silly I know)

Lots of opportunities to choose options that are Earth friendly to add into your regular grocery list. Just taking a couple steps to the left and picking up a different product can go a long way in improving our food system.  Which by the way, has anyone read the news paper this morning  and read about our government slashing funding for our food safety by half.
