Moved to Help

Last Saturday morning I was watching cartoons with my 7 year old granddaughter. And after several episodes of Tom and Jerry (she loves old school cartoons) you could stick a fork in me because I was done! I told her it was time to change up the program a bit. I suggested we try to [...]

Can the hostile environment in which quinoa (pronounced “KeenWa”) is grown account for its high nutritional content? Quinoa is a stable food of the Incas and the Indians of Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia. Today, most quinoa is grown in the high altitude plains of Bolivia, in what would be considered by most farmers infertile, [...]

It wasn’t until I heard another of its common names, “graviola,” that I realized I was indeed familiar with this funny-sounding plant.

Okra, also known as “Lady’s Finger,” is grown in warm and tropical regions of the world and is very popular in North-Eastern Africa, Asia, and the Caribbean.
