Value Added Biscuits from Organically Produced Food Ingredients: Neelam Khetarpaul, Savita Nehra
Stop feeding your family poison! Have you ever peeled a beautiful orange and found the inside dry and tasteless? Are you tired of supermarket recalls on bad fruits and vegetables? Do you wish for fresh, healthy fruits and vegetables to feed your children? Finally, learn how to protect your family´s health and serve crisp, colorful and safe fruits and vegetables by growing your own organically! No parent would knowingly feed their children poison. Sadly, that´s exactly what is happening every day. Even the most caring and conscientious parent can´t fight what they don´t see. And yet, that´s what happens each time you place a meal on your table. The vegetables appear attractive and colorful and may even taste okay. However, it´s what is inside that is harmful. Yes, we live in a wonderful age. Life has grown much easier for us with supermarkets, microwave ovens and instant foods. However, all of this ´´convenience´´ carries a pretty hefty price. Think about it for just a moment and see if you can add to these: Soil additives to increase yield per acre Hybrid seeds that produce more visually appealing vegetables Insecticides that chase away pests And, think about it for just a moment - these are vegetables and fruits that are grown in the US with the benefit of government oversight. What about all the imported produce? The FDA will tell you that imported produce is regulated. If that´s the case, then why were we afraid to eat tomatoes and chili peppers in the spring and summer of 2008 because of contamination? We love getting things like berries, melons, fresh corn, and cucumbers when there´s three feet of snow on the ground. A hundred years ago such a thing was unheard of. Again, what´s the price? 1.

As parents of young children, we of course want to feed our kids the healthiest food that we possibly can, but we can´t spend a fortune on food. We have all heard more and more recently about the chemicals, pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones that are present in the foods that we eat. So many of us are trying to live more frugally and stretch our tight budgets as much as we can. The idea of eating organically while also sticking to a strict grocery budget seems out of reach. But I want to share with you some of the ways that my family has been able to include natural/organic foods in our diet and even increase the amount of organic foods we are eating while continuing to stick to a pretty tight grocery budget for our family of four.

Want great tasting veggies from your own garden but cringe at the thought of doing all that back-breaking work of maintaining your garden? Don´t know how to start a garden? Or are you´re currently gardening with chemicals and have decided that gardening organically would give you plants with better nutrition and better taste but you don´t want to hang up your tools for seven years waiting for your soil to heal? Great news! No Work Urban Front Yard Vegetable Gardening Simplified by Joyce Zborower is an easy-to-follow guide for building and planting a new organic gardening bed in the ground right over an old chemical bed, a grassy spot that´s never been planted before, a rocky area, container gardening in pots, or in a raised garden bed so you won´t have to bend over to harvest your goodies. And once the bed is ready and planted, any further work on your part is very minimal. It also provides vegetable gardening basics and small garden ideas for an urban garden in the backyard or as front yard gardens. Is it really ´´no work?´´... No, but it´s as close as you´ll ever get without hiring someone to take care of it for you. Excerpt from No Work Urban Front Yard Vegetable Gardening Simplified: ´´Many years ago when I was just beginning to learn about organic gardening, I read Ruth Stout´s classic No-Work Garden Book in which she recommended nine-or-so inches of hay as a year-round mulch. I busted my you-know-what dragging home 80- to 90-pound bales of hay two at a time in the trunk of my car, somehow maneuvering them into my backyard and spreading the hay in my garden, only to find several months later that I had weeds in my yard that I had never seen before in my whole entire life! It took years to get rid of those weeds.´´ 1. Language: English. Narrator: Joyce Zborower. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/051402/bk_acx0_051402_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Broths and stocks have been part of almost every culture´s culinary tradition for centuries; from Vietnamese pho to Italian broth to American chicken noodle soup, a flavorful, meaty broth is at the base of some of the world´s most comforting dishes. But in the last couple of years, nutritionists and health food junkies have begun promoting broth not for its delicious warming properties, but for its numerous health benefits. According to many, broth made primarily with animal bones, and simmered for hours and hours (know as ´´bone broth´´) is a magic super food that can heal digestive issues, revive tired muscles, and make brittle hair and nails a thing of the past. Chances are you´ve heard about bone broth and its many benefits. Recipes and even cookbooks have been popping up to celebrate what looks like a new, and at the same time, very old miracle tonic. With sports stars like Kobe Bryant singing its praises, it´s easy to get caught up in all the bone broth hype. But is there any truth behind all of these reported bone broth benefits? First of all, you may be wondering: what is bone broth? Explained very basically, bone broth is a type of stock made from bones that have been boiled for a few hours, usually with other flavorings such as salt and pepper, and onions or carrots. Technically, bone broth can be made from any bones, but it´s generally thought that using the bones from healthy, organically-reared animals is better. While bone broth might seem like the trendiest super food trend out there, it´s actually far from anything new. While we don´t believe in panaceas or ´´cure-alls´´, we do believe that beyond being delightful to the senses, food is functional. It serves a purpose, and high-protein bone broth especially serves our systems. Bone broth has been a staple of human nutrition in almost every culture for thousands of years and remains so in many Asian and Latino cultures. 1. Language: English. Narrator: S.A. Crawley.

In The Power of a Plant, globally acclaimed teacher and self-proclaimed CEO (Chief Eternal Optimist) Stephen Ritz shows you how, in one of the nation´s poorest communities, his students thrive in school and in life by growing, cooking, eating, and sharing the bounty of their green classroom. What if we taught students that they have as much potential as a seed? That in the right conditions, they can grow into something great? These are the questions that Stephen Ritz - who became a teacher more than 30 years ago - sought to answer in 2004 in a South Bronx high school plagued by rampant crime and a dismal graduation rate. After what can only be defined as a cosmic experience when a flower broke up a fight in his classroom, he saw a way to start tackling his school´s problems: plants. He flipped his curriculum to integrate gardening as an entry point for all learning and inadvertently created an international phenomenon. As Ritz likes to say, ´´Fifty thousand pounds of vegetables later, my favorite crop is organically grown citizens who are growing and eating themselves into good health and amazing opportunities.´´ The Power of a Plant tells the story of a green teacher from the Bronx who let one idea germinate into a movement and changed his students´ lives by learning alongside them. Since greening his curriculum, Ritz has seen near-perfect attendance and graduation rates, dramatically increased passing rates on state exams, and behavioral incidents slashed in half. In the poorest congressional district in America, he has helped create 2,200 local jobs and built farms and gardens while changing landscapes and mindsets for residents, students, and colleagues. Along the way, Ritz lost more than 100 pounds by eating the food that he and his students grow in school. The Power of a Plant is his story of hope, resilience, regeneration, and optimism.
