True Food was established in 2000 as a means to engage non-farmers in the struggle against genetically engineered crops. It’s now a 40,000 member network dedicated to stopping the genetic engineering of our food, farms and future, and working with others to create a socially just, democratic and sustainable food system.

The True Food food list is really two lists — a list of real foods, and a list of Frankenfoods. genetically modified organisms scientifically designed to separate you from your money and your connection to good taste.

Take that most utilitarian meal, the TV dinner … or Heat & Serve meal, as it’s called by Big Food.

Here’s a True Food list of edible Heat & Serve meals:

— Amy’s Kitchen Chili
(Medium & Spicy) Chili with Vegetables

— Annie’s Naturals P’Sghetti with Tomato Sauce All-Star Pasta with Tomato Sauce

— Bernie O’s Pasta with Tomato sauce

— Bearitos Chili Black Bean Chili Spicy Chili Baked Beans

— Ginny’s Vegan Foods Savory Soy Chili Classic Ratatouille Roasted Red Pepper Chili Mexican Fiesta Stew

— Grandma Millina’s Kids Meals Pasta Rings in 3 Cheese Sauce Vegetarian Franks & Beans

— Health Valley (Hain/Celestial) Chili Fajita Turkey Chili & Beans 3 Bean Chili

— Yves Veggie Cuisine Veggie Chili Veggie Country Stew Veggie Macaroni Veggie Penne

While here are the Frankenfood dinners:

— Chef Boyardee (ConAgra) Beefaroni, Macaroni & Cheese, Mini Ravioli, ABC’s & 123’s

— Dinty Moore (Hormel) Beef Stew, Turkey Stew, Chicken & Dumplings

— Hormel Chili with Beans, Chili No Beans, Vegetarian Chili with Beans

Bonjour!

In culinary school and getting ready to trade the writing life for the cooking life. Or not. Might do both. At the moment I'm a feature writer for The Patriot-News in Harrisburg, Pa. My name is Pat Carroll.
