    Garden Vegetable Calories

    Knowing the stored energy in your garden crops
    by Jason

    An interesting look at what plants have the highest caloric value in your vegetable garden.  As always, plant and grow what works best in your area and what you like to eat but put some thought into exploring new varieties that could yield a greater level of calories for you and your family.  I think it is time to start eating more raw garlic.

    Whole Food Eating

    by Teresa Piro

    Saturday, May 21, 2011, 11:40 PM


    Have we forgotten where our food comes from? The importance of a whole foods diet has become more and more vital to our overall health and well-being, because, well, we’ve strayed so far from food. Farmers’ markets bring honest food to us. However, I certainly get lost and frustrated while shopping for food at a grocery store because a) there are too many products on the shelves and b) the multitude of choices requires label-ready due-diligence.

    I read a recent statistic that the average supermarket carries 48,750 items. Where have the days of the simple grocery list of eggs, apples, carrots, broccoli, fish, milk, and butter gone? Food today has been exploited and nutrient-rich foods exchanged for empty calories.

    Now, more than ever, it’s time we get back to the basics; be resourceful, ask questions about where your food is coming from, shop farmers markets, know your grocery, plant a garden, buy bulk dry goods, prepare your food at home, and cook with fresh ingredients as much as possible. It will save you loads of stress, and if done right, money, too. 

    As I share and encourage you to reconnect with your food, I hope you’ll explore new health-promoting hobbies, passions, and activities that can be enjoyed with family and friends.

    Here are a few ideas and recipes to inspire you:
