  • 3 Reasons to Avoid Food Additives

    Food additives are things added to food during processing, typically to enhance color or freshness. While some of them are natural, many aren’t—and all those unnatural additives can cause nasty side effects. Think about the artificial sweeteners hiding in diet soft drinks, or the emulsifiers (used to keep food from separating) in the salad dressing sitting in your refrigerator. Just these two things alone could easily destroy gut health. [1] [2] [3] But that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to unnatural additives. Also, when you realize that most of them aren’t even tested…

  • New lithium ion battery is safer, tougher, and more powerful

    Organic Chemistry News -- ScienceDaily
    3 Jul 2015 | 4:27 am
    Lithium ion batteries are a huge technological advancement from lead acid batteries which have existed since the late 1850's.  Thanks to their low weight, high energy density and slower loss of charge when not in use, these have become the preferred choice for consumer electronics.  Lithium-ion cells with cobalt cathodes hold twice the energy of a nickel-based battery and four-times that of lead acid.  Despite being a superior consumer battery, lithium-ion batteries still have some drawbacks.  Current manufacturing technology is reaching the theoretical energy density limit for lithium…

    Crops grown in contaminated urban soils present little to no risk for people eating those crops when gardeners have followed best practices, a six-year study indicates. The findings are significant for urban and suburban gardeners, who according to a 2012 estimate from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, provide about 15 percent of the world's food, much of that on vacant lands.

    Scientists investigated four orchard floor management systems in an organic apple orchard and evaluated weed management, soil nutrient content, soil physical conditions, apple yield, quality, and storability for each. A sandwich system used during the whole year eliminated vegetative cover competition, increased soil respiration, improved leaf and fruit calcium content, and resulted in moderate leaf and fruit nitrogen content and tree growth reduction, while producing good-quality apples with high storability, they report.
  • Biochar from manure waste enhances soils

    6 May 2015 | 5:45 am
    Researchers have obtained biochar using manure waste, a new material that can improve soil properties and increase crop yields. The results suggest an optimal solution to manage the manure from chicken and cattle. Biochar, a material obtained after thermal treatment of this waste through pyrolysis, is an organic fertilizer that applied in soils and not only has positive effects on crop yields, but also represents a significant reduction of CO2 emissions compared to the direct application of manure waste on soils.

  • The 9 Best Fermented Foods for Your Gut

    Brandon May
    2 Jul 2015 | 8:00 am
    Fermented food has made a comeback in recent years, partially thanks to the popularization of Weston A. Price teachings. Fermented foods like sauerkraut and kimchi aren’t considered to be the most appealing types of food; however, research exploring these and other fermented products on gut, brain, and body health has revitalized public interest. The fermentation process encourages essential bacteria such as Lactobacilli and Bifidobacteria to flourish. This makes fermentation a good source of probiotics for vegans, since many fermented foods are plant based. Vegetables are submerged in a…
  • Trans Fat Ban Here to Stay

    1 Jul 2015 | 10:20 am
    The controversy surrounding trans fats has very little to do with their existence; after all, trans fats exist in nature in small amounts. What’s really troubling is that they have continued to exist in the food supply for years, even when their negative health effects were widely known by both health professionals and the public. [1] Fortunately, trans fats are finally being phased out of all foods in the United States, bringing us one step closer to a healthier nation. While we still have a long way to go, it creates a lot of hope to know that public health is finally being valued.

Sometimes all that toxic buildup can take its toll on the colon, which encumbers digestion and overall health. When your colon is backed up with toxic material, your entire body becomes sluggish and unable to perform its day-to-day tasks. Luckily, your body does a pretty good job detoxifying itself on a regular basis; however, some toxins remain in the body and require some help to facilitate removal. 5 Benefits of Colon Cleansing Helping your body detoxify itself isn’t…

    The Hermione, a replica of the tall ship that carried the Marquis de Lafayette and aid from France to assist General Washington in the waning days of the American Revolution, docked in Alexandria last night at midnight. If the boy wasn’t still in school, I’d have taken the kids down to watch its arrival; but alas, we had to settle for heading to the waterfront this afternoon. We didn’t have tickets to board (very limited tickets are available each day at 8:30am), but there were activities and re-enacters on the dock and you can walk right up to the ship for a close-up view.

    Whenever I make up a batch of quick pickles, I think about my grandmother, who had such a lush, amazing garden, and the food preservation skills to match. She had little in the way of finances, so she was always very frugal about using whatever was on hand so we could enjoy the tastes of her garden throughout the long, cold Minnesota winter months. I remember zucchini, squash, tomato salsas, even fruit pickling. If she grew it, she canned it.When I grew up and became a chef, I never forgot the way my grandmother would make sure to use produce wisely so that there wasn't any waste, and of…

    I went to the farmers market last weekend for the first time this year with three things in mind: tomato plants, rhubarb, and donuts.  I came home with two out of the three.  The tomato plants and rhubarb were a breeze to find, but sadly the donuts were all sold out.  Despite my donut fail, I was excited about my other two finds. I’ve been dying to get my hands on some fresh rhubarb, and there was plenty to be found at the farmers market.

    I have never really considered myself an expert at anything, but if I were an expert at something, I would have to say it is foraging and using ramps. Ramps are the wild version of onions that grow in shady and sandy forest areas, often near rivers and streams, which is why I usually come across them while I am trout fishing. Years ago, I would go out looking for ramps and not find a single one. I must have spent an entire season looking for ramps and didn't find any. Now it seems like they are all I see. If there are ramps around, I can find them.  Of all the spring foragables that people…

And they were! These are ridiculously easy to make, with…
