Cooperation has been at the core of human survival since the beginning of time. Sharing resources for food and shelter were essential for early societies to survive. Cooperation reached a formal status during the industrial revolution as industry changed society from agrarian to industrial. Our modern day cooperative roots reach back to the formation of the Rochdale Pioneers of 1844 who wanted to buy honest food at honest prices. Forty years later, the cooperative movement initiated advocacy for women through the formation of the Women’s Cooperative Guild. The Women... Read more

Are you looking for something different to grill this summer? Try fresh fruit! It’s a nutritious and colorful way to add exciting flavor to your backyard party. Fruit is comprised mostly of water and sugars. The heat of your grill will caramelize the natural sugars and reduce the water content, concentrating the flavor. Also, when you eat the fruit while still warm, it is luscious!

Grilling fruit is pretty simple. If you cut the fruit early, soak it in water to keep it juicy, adding a little lemon juice to retain color. Start with a clean grill grate... Read more

For years, “fat-free” was the mantra of healthy food. Then we learned that our bodies need fat — the right kind of fat. That’s when things got confusing. So, allow me to present a sort of “fat primer.”

There are four major dietary fats: monounsaturated fats, polyunsaturated fats, saturated fats and trans fats (the last one being a dubious invention of the food industry).

Monounsaturated fats are most abundant in foods like nuts and various plant oils — such as olive oil, canola oil, and avocado oil. They can lower the LDL (“lousy cholesterol,” as my... Read more
