Jimmy Kimmel Asks Anti-GMO People What A “GMO” Is

Do you ever get the feeling that some people don’t really understand the topics they disagree with when it comes to science? Nuclear power, climate change, nutrition … everyone has an opinion, but those opinions can quickly fall to pieces when probed. Jimmy Kimmel decided to take a camera crew to a local farmers market, and ask some self proclaimed anti-GMO avocates what exactly a GMO is.



Why Renata Created This Blog

We can all help make the world better by reducing the amount of food we waste.

By reading this blog I want you to feel how reducing food waste can be eco-friendly, easy, and delicious.


My food journey began with a passion for movement. I was in ballet class from a very young age and continued through contemporary dance, belly dancing, and Kathak. I also enjoyed capoeira, karate, ginastica natural, tai chi chuan, and different types of yoga classes.

Currently, I’m into fitness and free weights…I love going to the gym, and achieving the desired fitness results means learning new ways of eating and preparing food based on the needs of each exercise. I’ve learned how cooking, nutrition, and movement are connected, and also developed a greater appreciation of our Earth.

I’m an ISSA certified Specialist in Fitness Nutrition. I’m totally passionate about health and cooking and I love helping people discover eco-friendly ways to reduce food waste and lower food costs.


I’m happy in the kitchen, sometimes creating new dishes and sometimes testing somebody else’s recipes (usually with a little twist – just because I’m a rebel!). You can find me spending time with my three kids. I also cherish quiet moments painting or reading.

Leave chopped orange peels in water in the refrigerator for 24 hours. Drain the water, wash the peels again and puree in a blender with the other ingredients except the cream.

Return to heat and cook until creamy. Lastly, add the cream and mix well. Divide into small portions and keep in the fridge for about 2 hours before serving.
