:: another reason to avoid processed food ::

Straight from the FDA...
"January 19, 2009: The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is conducting a very active and dynamic investigation into the source of the Salmonella Typhimurium outbreak. At this time, the FDA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state partners have traced sources of Salmonella Typhimurium contamination to a plant owned by Peanut Corporation of America (PCA), which manufactures peanut butter and peanut more"

So far there's been 453 illnesses and 5 deaths. I'm so glad I won't find any of these things in my pantry. Be safe guys! Eat natural!

:: Challenge 2009 ::

Each year, we usually make a big trip somewhere. This year, we're visiting Peru and Chile for some pretty crazy adventure treks.

We're starting off in Patagonia, Chile visiting Torres Del Paine National Park where we will hike the "W" circuit. Look at how beautiful it is! If we're lucky with weather, we might actually see it!

When we're done with that, we'll spend another week in Chile for some downtime along the coast and the deserts before heading on to Peru.

In Peru, our main goal is to hike the 4-day inca trail to the Machu Picchu ruins. Again another challenge as it's been likened to half dome x 2. I am SO EXCITED!
