ReallyNourish Bites: ‘Cado & Pro-Ve-lone on a Sprouted Muffin 


is our answer to the the proverbial New Yorker’s breakfast. We have eschewed that #BaconEggandCheeseonaRoll habit in favor of this variation, which is nutrient rich, toxin free, and absolutely scrumptious!!!

‘Cado & Pro-Ve-lone on a Sprouted Muffin:

We used these organic ingredients: 

Great on Sandwiches,  Wraps and mixed with pasta!
Great on Sandwiches, Wraps and mixed with pasta!
  • 1/2 ripe Avocado
  • 1/4 cup of Red Onion, diced
  • 3 large pitted Green Olives, diced
  • Fresh Basil leaves
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Himalayan Sea Salt and Freshly Cracked Black Pepper to taste
  • Follow Your Heart Vegan Provolone-style slices
  • Food For Life Genesis 1:29 Sprouted English Muffins

Before we go on, let’s review that scripture, shall we?

29 Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant 🌽🌾 on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. 🍊🍎🍋They will be yours for food.

And just for good measure, let’s peep the next verse also:

30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.🌿🌱” And it was so.

I like to consider these verses while I’m shopping for food: 

🌾Seed-bearing plant = grains, including nuts and seeds = the English Muffins, the vegan cheese is made largely of Coconut oil

🍋Tree with fruit with seed in it = the avocado, olives & olive oil, pepper (yes, that’s a fruit!), apple cider vinegar

Three varieties grown from seedlings purchased at the Whitehall Ferry Terminal Farmer's Market in organic potting soil on my terrace in NYC.

🌿And to everything that has the breath of life in it – I give every green plant for food = the basil and the onions fit this description

💖Thank you God, You’re AWESOME!💖

The salt was the only thing that didn’t fit any of these, but the many positive references to salt in The Bible give me God’s go ahead on that – in moderation, of course.

So now this is what you do: 

  • Thaw and toast your muffin.
  • Scoop out the Avocado in to a bowl and add the diced onions, olives, olive oil, vinegar, salt and pepper to taste.  Mash it all together using the back of a fork to break up the avocado well.
  • Cut your muffin in half and put one slice of the vegan “cheese” on.  A little drizzle of olive oil on top or a schmear of vegan butter underneath will help it melt under the top broiler the way the dairy stuff would.
  • Put the avocado mix on, sandwich it up and dig in!  Or wrap it up in foil and pop it into a sandwich bag to go!

[App Review] Buycott: The Revolution will be Downloaded.

I downloaded Buycott on my iPhone a couple of weeks ago and have been test driving both Buycott Logothe app and the website link access actively since.  Signup was simple using my Facebook account.

“You’re avoiding this product” in the Demand GMO Labeling campaign because the parent company, J.M. Smucker, donated more than $1.5M to oppose GMO labeling.

How it Works: You can join campaigns started by other users.  Each campaign you join has a list of corporations that you either should (Buycott) or should not (Boycott) patronize.  Then, as you shop, you can scan the barcode of any item you’re considering buying to see if it goes against your ethos – the large database of products are all linked to their parent corporations, which are linked to your campaigns, and, as long as there is a strong enough signal in the store, you get an instant answer.

How Well it Works: I cross checked many of the products via product labels and online research to determine the veracity of the corporate chain links on all the products we checked, and they all checked out to

be correctly identified and flagged.  In most cases, there were live source links for corporations and brands so you could quickly view the reasoning behind their presence in the buycott/boycott.

I did, nonetheless, find one corporation, Hain Celestial, that the GMO supporting companies to avoid & Good Labels to Buy campaign has on their “avoid” list.  The large natural and organic food supplier verified their support of mandatory GMO labeling in a March 2013 press release.  Unfortunately, there was no easy way to either communicate this or fix it.  We posted on that campaign’s comment board more than a week ago, but it appears that the comment has not been seen, and Hain remains in the wrong section of that campaign’s target list.  I just messaged the campaign organizer.  I will post in comments if I get a reply. 

The Weight Up on Buycott


  • Quick answers with detailed reasoning if you want it.Earthbound Brocolli on Buycott
  • Well stocked database of products identified by barcode
  • Largely accurate
  • Variety of campaigns across numerous industries
  • Easy to use – MUCH better than a printed boycott list!  Database is searchable by barcodes as well as by keywords.
  • Thorough synopses explain each campaign.
  • Stores your scan history in your profile.
  • Provides alternative options of products that keep you on track with your campaign.


  • Adding a new product to the database didn’t work
  • I was shocked to find out that this is a "don't buy" because their parent company, General Mills, donated more than $2.9M to oppose GMO labeling!

    No clear way to report an inaccuracy or out of date information

  • We’d like to see more communication ability in general with other users.  Boycotting is a group effort.
  • Some campaigns that seem to be going in the same direction may have brands that conflict between them.  Remember, big corporations spend lots of money on their image maintenance!

Overall: Buycott has been a huge help in supporting my civic duty to make conscious decisions in purchasing.  Caveat emptor still applies: be aware.  No app should ever replace your personal responsibility to do your own homework.

Thank you, Ivan Pardo, for this revolutionary contribution to the future of human empowerment!

Support your Right to Know about GMOs: Boycott Monsanto

This is a list of Monsanto’s companies courtesy of True Activist.

Monsanto has spent more than $4.7 Million lobbying for the Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act of 2015, more accurately known as the DARK Act (Deny Americans the Right to Know).  The act would deny states the right to require labeling of foods containing GMOs, and would stop future regulation of GMOs in agriculture.  Genetically Modification exists only to protect their interest, but numerous studies have shown that prolonged consumption of GMOs can have adverse effects on YOUR health.
