First batch of greens from the garden! Curly lettuce, mint, thyme, oregano, basil and sage. I can’t wait until the rest of the fruits and veggies are ready.

Cool idea!

Cool idea!

Buy sensibly. As a consumer of animal products you’re contributing to animal cruelty. It’s as simple as that.

The wwf just discourages the hunting/ murder of endagered species, so i don’t necessary agree with their cause, but i do like this campaign, since it brings awareness to the impact that a person can have. Supply and demand are directly linked.

8 vegetables that you can regrow again and again.

Scallions

You can regrow scallions by leaving an inch attached to the roots and place them in a small glass with a little water in a well-lit room.

Garlic

When garlic begins to sprout, you can put them in a glass with a little water and grow garlic sprouts. The sprouts have a mild flavor than garlic and can be added to salads, pasta and other dishes.

Bok Choy

Bok choy can be regrown by placing the root end in water in a well-lit area. In 1-2 weeks , you can transplant it to a pot with soil and grow a full new head.

Carrots

Put carrot tops in a dish with a little water. Set the dish in a well-lit room or a window sill.  You’ll have carrot tops to use in salads. 

Basil

Put clippings from basil with 3 to 4-inch stems in a glass of water and place it in direct sunlight. When the roots are about 2 inches long, plant them in pots to and in time it will grow a full basil plant.

Celery

Cut off the base of the celery and place it in a saucer or shallow bowl of warm water in the sun. Leaves will begin to thicken and grow in the middle of the base, then transfer the celery to soil. 

Romaine Lettuce

Put romaine lettuce stumps in a 1/2 inch of water. Re-water to keep water level at 1/2 inch. After a few days, roots and new leaves will appear and you can transplant it into soil.

Cilantro

The stems of cilantro will grown when placed in a glass of water. Once the roots are long enough, plant them in a pot in a well-lit room. You will have a full plant in a few months.

So cool!

Garlic Broccoli

My all-time favorite Chinese take-out dish made into something that is actually healthy and delicious. 100% organic, 100% non-GMO, 100% easy!

Ingredients

  • 2 cups broccoli forests
  • 1 tbsp safflower oil (or canola)
  • 5 large cloves of fresh garlic
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tsp sugar (raw brown sugar or coconut sugar is recommended)
  • 1 tsp chili peppers (I use thai chili)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup water
  • sesame seeds for garnish

Instructions

  1. Bring oil to medium-high (6-7) heat in a wok.
  2. While waiting for oil to heat: peel and mince garlic, chop peppers, and cut your broccoli to bite sized pieces
  3. Add broccoli to wok and stir fry until ends begin to brown.
  4. Add garlic (leave about a teaspoon worth of garlic for later) and peppers, stir fry for another minute or two, unti garlic browns and releases plenty of delicious smells
  5. Turn heat to the warmer setting. Mix in about 1/8 cup of water, soy sauce, salt, and the rest of the garlic.
  6. Mix in more water to get sauce to your liking, and serve with a side of rice!

I really, really, really like garlic so I used quite a bit. You can just start out with 1 or 2 cloves and decide for yourself just how much of a garlic lover you are.

Looks super tasty and easy to whip up!
