Samuel Adams talks about how to obtain a 40lb box of bananas for $10, and then demonstrates what to do with the bounty. Organic bananas will cost more but taste better.

Robyn O’Brien was just a Mom trying to feed her kids. One morning while eating Eggo waffles, yogurt and eggs, her baby looked she was choking. They rushed her to the hospital and the doctor said your kids allergic to food. The questions from Robyn were, “Why is food poisonous for kids?” and “What was added to our food that has increased the likelihood of allergies?” Robyn learned of the changes she and her family had to make and has since strived to educate everyone that will listen.

The reality of plant based eating is that their is so much to eat and sometimes the focus on fruits and vegetables forces creativity.

We ate our picnic on the Hudson while the sun set and it was nice until it instantly got freezing.
