Making raw nut milks from scratch is a fun and healthy choice for you and the planet.

I love these drinks because they eliminate the packaging of store bought milks, don’t require something made largely of water to be shipped across the U.S. (which uses lots of fuel), and they are very fresh and healthy. No mystery ingredients, no preservatives.

Plus it’s non-dairy, which is better for many folks and for the cows!

Another old tradition is making its way back into modern kitchens: bone broths. These stocks refer back to earlier times when our ancestors used every part of an animal (eating nose-to-tail). Bone broth is made from bones, skin, feet, tendons and ligaments—parts of the animal that can't be easily digested—but what differentiates bone broth from other stocks or broths is the length of time it cooks—up to 48 hours.

Bone broth can be made from the bones of beef, poultry, fish, bison or lamb and enhanced with vegetables and seasonings. Bones from grass-fed... Read more

If you would like to see GMO foods labeled, now is a critical time to contact your elected officials. Right now, Congress is debating a proposed law that would block mandatory GMO labeling at the national and state levels. Titled The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act, this bill establishes new barriers to a national mandatory labeling system, and undermines the public will by nullifying GMO labeling laws already on the books in Vermont, Connecticut and Maine. It would also prevent states from passing... Read more
