Roasted Beet Salad with Goldenberry Vinaigrette

Greens are so vital to a healthy diet; Raw foodists might eat two salads a day to make sure that they get enough protein and mineral-rich leafy greens, which could become tedious if you don’t find ways to perk them up.  What I love about “raw fusion” is how by combining tantalizing textures and temperatures, […]

Our Modern Food Supply – Can You Trust It?

Old MacDonald had a farm.  And on that farm he had some chicks, cows and soybeans.

Sadly, Old MacDonald no longer owns his farm.  He simply couldn’t compete with the mega corporations     that control modern American farming.  Oh, he tried… but his expenses were becoming astronomical to produce the high-quality organic livestock he raised and he simply couldn’t get the return he needed to eke out a living.

So, Old MacDonald tried soybeans.  Foreseeing the potential dangers inherent to genetically modified organisms, MacDonald chose to grow his crops organically.  But seeds from his neighbor’s genetically-engineered soybean fields blew over the fences and contaminated his crop.  Then the conglomerate holding the patent on those GMO seeds, sued MacDonald for patent violations and bankrupted him.   Finally, MacDonald had no choice but to sell the family farm that his family had owned and operated for more than 100 years.

There are thousands of former farmers across the U.S. with stories like Old MacDonald.  Consequently, farming, and the food we eat, isn’t what it used to be.  Back then, most of our food was supplied by family farmers who took pride in bringing high quality foods to American tables.  Today, our food supply is controlled by a handful of businesses, constantly seeking new ways to cut costs and increase their profits.  Too often, that quest for profit leads to an over-processed, yet less nutritious food supply.
