What to do with a box of bananas

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.

Glyphosate induces human breast cancer cells growth via estrogen receptors. Another way of saying this is that the active ingredient in roundup ready GMO crops is a culprit for breast cancer.

Plant Based Picnic on the Hudson

IMG_2101When I first thought of going on picnics as a veg head it seemed like it was going to suck. The reality of plant based eating is that their is so much to eat and sometimes the focus on fruits and vegetables forces creativity. Coconut fried tofu with sushi quinoa/brown rice, seaweed salad, corn salad, and a pint of strawberries. We ate our picnic on the Hudson while the sun set and it was nice until it instantly got freezing.

sushi quinoa/brown rice

cook brown rice and quinoa together in a pot and let cool

add rice vinegar, sugar or stevia to taste and a few drops of soy sauce.
