Recently we’ve done a couple of posts about organic vs. non-organic produce in the form of the Clean Fifteen and Dirty Dozen. One of you lovely readers had a question about the best ways to wash your produce – an excellent inquisition indeed. Read more »

I had no idea that I should clean my vegetables so hard even if they are organic, from my own garden! Thanks a lot for sharing this helpful article! Love the idea with the vinegar! Charlton Carpet Cleaners Ltd.

Sadly I don’t recall scrubbing veggies and fruits growing up. In fact I clearly remember Grandma saying something like, “A little dirt never hurt”. We used to rinse and go. Best regards! Raynes Park Carpet Cleaners Ltd.

Fruit may be the ideal food in nature. We may just think of a bird eating a plum or a cherry and so flying away and shitting out the ingested stone somewhere away from the plant that gave that fruit for the possibility of spreading of off-spring out in nature.

There’s nothing better than cooking out on a grill in the summer, and eating beneath the late-day sunshine as it dips below trees.  Read more »

This is the second time in two weeks that I hear someone mention halloumi. It sounds so good, where can I get some of it?? I haven't seen a Greek store near me :( the kale and the burger both look really good. Great recipe!

As a vegan, is there a substitute I could use for the egg in this recipe? Looks delicious, would love to try the vegan version :)

Post image for Celebrate Watermelon Day With Agua Fresca

There’s no other fruit that embodies summer quite like the watermelon. A warm-weather essential for gatherings and backyard parties, it seems only fitting that this iconic melon should have its own holiday, and this Sunday is exactly that: National Watermelon Day. You may not get the day off from work, but August 3rd is still a day worth celebrating. Read more »

Post image for Organic vs. Conventional: The Clean Fifteen

Last week, I shared Environmental Working Group’s 2014 Dirty Dozen: a list of the 12 fruits and vegetables that tested highest for pesticide residue – a group that, in my opinion, should really only be consumed if organic. Today I want to shed light on the happier end of the spectrum: EWG’s Clean Fifteen. Read more »

Thank you for sharing! I learned interesting new things! I'm curious what filter did you use for your photos. They look so good and kind of vintage that way!

Link exchange is nothing else except it is only placing the other person's webpage link on your page at appropriate place and other person will also do similar in support of you.

Aw, this was an incredibly nice post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to produce a top notch article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

Try substituting the goat cheese for a smoked blue cheese. It will blow your mind! Also if the texture is not to your liking try fig jam! Goes great with Spanish cheese. R

Post image for 5 Infused Water Recipes To Keep You Hydrated

UPDATE: This post originally ran on May 27th but we can’t get enough of these amazing infused water recipes for summer, so we’re sharing it again! Read more »

Maryann -Jan 05, 2015, 10:19PM
I like these ideas for fruits but it's way too much fruit (in my opinion) for a glass. My trick is I make it like I would tea. A whole lemon can make a pitcher of water. I just slice off the peal, and cut it into slices. A tablespoon or two of locally grown honey is nice too. Then I boil water and fill the pitcher. It's ready as soon as it's cold in like 3 or 4 hours in the fridge. It tastes best if drunk in about 4 days. It's also a great way to filter water by boiling it first. Sometimes I grab a small handful of frozen fruit or a few slices of cucumber. When I can't finish fruit in time, I freeze it and use it for my infused water. It also helps me not to waste. Also, the peal gives a very strong flavor. I can achieve a similar taste of lemon flavor by using a few slices with the peal on. It's pretty cheap and only like 50 cents to a dollar for a pitcher of infused water. Another trick is to get a pitcher that strains it as you pour. I've never bought a water infuser because I don't like the idea of cleaning it out, and like my fruit to free flow. A small enough strainer eliminates me from needing an infuser. I live the farm life so you make best with what you've got and try not to have unnecessary junk. I got two really nice glass pitchers with strainers at Fred Meyers for only $10 bucks a piece.
Agam Sha -Nov 18, 2014, 9:28AM
Is it okay to eat the fruit after finishing the water?
