from Cornucopia

By exploring exactly how the edible concoctions sold to us as “food” are made, the book sheds light on why we would all be better off eating real food, grown in soil and raised on farms, rather than the creations of food chemists in lab coats that are assembled in factories rather than cooked in kitchens...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Processed foods didn't just "happen," we've bought into it over a process of time. It is time to become educated on how and why we consume what we do. Handing over our health with such confidence to the powers-that-be has lead us to a doomed road of obesity, disease, and unhappiness.

The simplest spring cleaning ideas can be found around the home. Under the sink and in the cupboard are ingredients with the power to clean easily and organically. Here are a few of my favorites:

1. Hydrogen peroxide: Hydrogen peroxide is very inexpensive. Available at any store in the pharmacy and health and beauty section, the bubbling action gets up stuck on grime and sanitizes as it works. Food grade hydrogen peroxide is an even safer, cleaner way to go, though a bit more in cost...

Hydroponics is a technology for growing terrestrial plants with their roots in nutrient solutions (water with dissolved fertilizers) rather than soil. Hydroponic production is not mentioned in the Organic Foods Production Act (OFPA) of 1990...


Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Growing with hydroponics does not guarantee an organic food. Consider the following article by The Cornucopia Institute, weighing in on the issue.

The nation’s toxic chemical regulatory law, The Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) of 1976, allows chemicals on the market without meaningful safety assessments and gives the Environmental Protection Agency almost no authority to protect the public health...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: A diet rich in organic food is a must to reduce the exposure to pesticides.

My original purpose for writing this book was to provide information to parents with a new baby born with Down syndrome. While compiling this information, however, I’ve realised that my story is relevant to any parent.

The very nature of Down syndrome is such that the extra chromosome can bring about any number of a collection of ‘symptoms’.  

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: An arrival of a special needs child is no reason to ditch an organic lifestyle. In fact, it is the perfect time to step up, dig in, and discover ways to benefit a child with challenges...

The perfect, romantic, delicious meal is on the table. The candles glow and flicker upon the vision of heaven set forth on the table. The asparagus is slightly steamed, bursting in a brilliant green...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: I want my sexy food back! We can go too far in our march to organic and fair. We can end up without getting anything in the end.

Reading food labels can be a challenge, especially when trying to make choices to support a more sustainable food system. Food and nutrition labels around the world can include a lot of information, and not all of it is easy to decipher...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: So many things to read on our food. What does it mean to be organic? What do the ingrediants have to list? GMO, Food Sustainability, and more. Here's a list of how to wade through what should be on the food we buy.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: What a great gift idea for the budget-minded! Homemade lip balm. Just love the idea of simple way to go organic and beat the system at it's expensive game! A great way to spend  a little bit of time to give a warm, wonderful gift from the heart.

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Tea is much more than plopping a bag in cup and adding hot water. To get the whole benefits, watch this video to enhance a greater appreciation for the ritual and love of making tea.

Organic foods are one of a number of healthy food trends that is developing into a longer term commitment to healthier farming practices, and healthier food. It is not only that organic food is healthier to eat; it is also healthier for the environment...

 

Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: Trends of foods and diet come and go. The Blood Type diet and the Aitkens Diet, for example, all made headlines? Is organic food just a trend? When all is read and said and done, I have a feeling organic might become the norm instead the "other" crop.
