Just Say NO to GMO
Green Earth Bazaar inspired me to post this explosive video to illustrate the dangers of genetically modified food. GMOs are poison. Period. Noone knows the long term effects of genetically modified foods but the short term effects are already being seen. Resistance to antibiotics are already becoming commonplace. Viruses are morphing into super strains, untreatable by mainstream medications....

Sustainable Recipe: Solstice Blueberry Pie
Blueberries are at the height of season from now until September. Buying them in season is a healthy way of living a sustainable lifestyle. The ones out of season and not local really are tasteless anyway. Freezing is a good way to store for use long into the winter, as is making blueberry preserves but I can’t get enough of them while they are at peak season, plump, juicy and bursting with...

10 Reasons to Buy Locally and be a Home Cook
Today’s article comes straight from the pages of Sustainable Table. These days we are eating out on average of four times a week. I am, of course, including the takeout from Mc Donald’s and pizza deliveries. We rely more and more, when we do cook at home, on convenience foods, prepackaged monstrosities filled with chemicals and hidden sugars. There seems to be an awakening going on in...

How to Cook an Artichoke
Yesterday, I posted on the benefits of eating artichokes. We eat them regularly in our house, steamed or boiled, served with vinaigrette, olive oil and lemon juice, or drawn grass-fed butter. I marinate my own hearts (because I loathe commercial hearts marinated in soy oil) for salads and recipes. I crave them and luckily, they grow them in every season, except winter, in Lebanon. I thought it...

Real Food: 8 benefits of Artichoke
There are many ways to reap the amazing health benefits of artichokes. While many people’s favorite part is the heart, it is the leaves that contain many of the artichoke’s powerful health benefits. These are not part of the dirty “dozen” as they have strong outer leaves. It is not necessary to buy artichokes organic. There are ways to cook an artichoke, such as steaming...

Recipe: Throw Away the Toothpaste Tube
Did you know that the average American uses three tubes of toothpaste a year? A family of four will go through 12 to 15 tubes a year. That is a lot of non-recyclable “junk” sitting in our landfills. Toothpastes are also chock full of lovely chemicals such as mica (inhaled, it is carcinogenic), sodium lauryl sulfate (engine degreaser), and triclosan (a pesticide.) Considering the fact...

Editorial: Zero! Really?
I spend a lot of time attempting to teach my readers how dangerous chemical additives can be for health. I find it fantastic when someone else can illustrate those dangers as perfectly as did Ian from Peeled Snacks. So in my constant pursuit of “total snack comprehension”, I have lately been dabbling in the beverage world, specifically in the world of Zero calorie beverages....
