Seek out restaurants with organic choices. Buying organic items is rule number one to safeguard against eating GMOs. Some examples of good restaurants to go to are The Tasteful Kitchen at 722 N. Stone Ave., Pasco Kitchen & Lounge at 820 E. University Blvd., Harvest restaurant at 10355 N. La Canada Drive, and Renee’s Organic Oven at 7065 E. Tanque Verde Rd. These restaurants use a lot of organic ingredients (plus for those who avoid gluten, these restaurants have a lot of gluten-free choices, too).
BONUS TIP: Pasco Kitchen & Lounge, The Tasteful Kitchen, and Harvest are restaurants that were pioneers in hosting the first three Non-GMO Pure Food Dinners that our group held in the summer and early autumn on 2012. We applaud them for leading the way in learning about how to avoid GMOs for our dinners, and we eat at these restaurants often because we appreciate the quality ingredients they are using (but we still ask questions to double-check ingredients!). We encourage you to frequent these restaurants, too, and tell them how important it is to you that they have GMO-free options. Also, watch this website for dates and locations of future Non-GMO Pure Food Dinners and make sure to make a special effort to come to these meals. Our Non-GMO Pure Food Dinners being well attended sends the message loudly and clearly to restaurant managers and owners that there is a high demand for non-GMO “pure food” in restaurant meals. When enough of us show up and vote with our dollars, restaurants will offer more Non-GMO options and eventually completely GMO-free options on their menus.
