How Government Cover-Up on Fish Farming Affects Your Health For related articles and more information, please visit OCA's Health Issues page and our Food Safety Research Center page. Many environmental experts have warned about the unsustainability of fish farms for a decade now, and we have documented those objections in many previous articles. Unfortunately nothing has yet been done to improve the system. As usual, government agencies and environmental organizations around the world turned a blind eye to what was predicted to become an absolute disaster, and now the ramifications can be seen across the globe, including in British Columbia, Canada. Salmon Confidential is a fascinating documentary that draws back the curtain to reveal how the Canadian government is covering up the cause behind British Columbia's rapidly dwindling wild salmon population. Tracking viruses, Morton moves from courtrooms, into British Columbia's most remote rivers, Vancouver grocery stores and sushi restaurants.

Nyonya Food: Straits Chinese and Peranakan Recipes Dorie Greenspan: Recipes Archives L'Oeuf Neuf: A new way to cook an egg, with thanks to Buvette April 09, 2014 When I heard that Buvette in NYC made eggs with their espresso machine’s steam wand, the one normally used to make cappuccino, I was intrigued. When I tasted the eggs, I was obsessed. If I weren’t on the road, I’d have them again, right now. At home in Connecticut, we have a big (read ‘hulking’) commercial espresso machine. I’m going to tell you what I did, but first: If you’ve made these eggs – or if you watched someone at Buvette make them – please pipe up with advice. ...Continue reading L'Oeuf Neuf: A new way to cook an egg, with thanks to Buvette Brussels Sprouts + Bacon + Maple Syrup + Mustard, while the weather's still cool March 31, 2014 I've recently renewed my committment to Brussels sprouts. When I first started making B-sprouts and bacon, I cooked the sprouts in a little broth, but now I give them a quick steaming before I turn them around - stir-fryish style - in hot oil.

Orangette Cauliflower "Fried Rice" - Domesticate ME! It’s Friday, so I felt like I’d tell you a little story about the time I went to fancy fat camp. You’re welcome. It was August of 2007, and I had barely survived a summer of hard work selling cowboy hats at beer festivals in Boulder, Colorado. Because I had devoted most of July to conducting a personal taste test of the burrito joints in Boulder and drinking my weight in hobo sangria, I wasn’t exactly in fighting shape. Therefore, when my bff Fifi asked if I would like to accompany her and her mother to Canyon Ranch for a week, I enthusiastically accepted. For those of you who have never heard of Canyon Ranch, it is a lovely chain of “destination health resorts,” offering everything from nutrition coaching and creative exercise classes to meditation and exotic spa treatments. Upon arrival, Fifi and I settled into our cozy room and then headed straight to dinner with Ginny (Fifi’s mother) for our first “spa dining experience.” Days 4-7 are mostly a blur, probably due to malnutrition.

David Lebovitz 5 Delicious Green Smoothies For Beginners Have you ever heard someone mention a green smoothie and wanted to gag? I did. Three years ago a friend of mine suggested I have green smoothies for breakfast, and I wanted to scream profanities at her after I made my first one. She didn't warn me that green smoothies are something you have to ease into (for most people, anyway). My first green smoothie consisted of swiss chard (I didn't even know what it was until I bought it the first time), mustard greens (too bitter for a beginner), an avocado (gave it a great texture, but SUCKED with the rest of the produce), blueberries (contributed to an "eye sore" of a color; an ugly shade of brown), a peeled lemon, a banana (which added to the thickness of the smoothie... not a good idea at the time), coconut water and raw almonds. To be honest, not only was the smoothie absolutely disgusting, but I was mad that I'd spent so much money on something I didn't even like. Note: Try to use organic produce and ingredients when possible. 1. 2. 3. 4.
