Kale Tasting Table!

A large amount of hardy greens over-wintered well in the garden, and last week we harvested over 30 bunches of fresh, organically grown kale for the South Corvallis Food Bank! Delivered with our new bike trailer (along with a dozen bulbs of garlic pulled out of winter storage) we also demonstrated to SCFB clients how to cook a quick and easy, delicious and nutritious dish of braised kale and garlic. It was a HUGE hit with everyone, especially the kids who were excited to try our delicious, colorful greens knowing they had been in the ground and growing that very morning! ("Are we really allowed to have thirds? What about FOURTHS!?")

The Red Russian variety of kale was a favorite and flew off the shelf, though our Dwarf Blue Curled Scotch type went quickly too. The weekend saw another harvest and delivery of more than a dozen bunches of fresh-picked, organically grown Tuscan Blue variety kale (which also goes by the names of Black Kale, Dinosaur Kale or Lacinato Kale).

In addition to tasting healthy foods and being able to take home some fresh kale, families were also given information on other ways to prepare kale that included the following easy suggestions that we all can follow if we're looking for ways to use this delicious green....

Five Great Ways to Use the
Kale from S.A.G.E.

1. Chop it up and sauté in a pan with a little oil and garlic for delicious braised greens.
2. Add a handful to the blender to give your smoothie a boost of nutrition and fantastic color!
3. Oil it, add some seasoning and bake in the oven at a low heat to make crispy green chips.
4. Add it your favorite stir-fry recipe.
5. Dice it up and throw it in any soup.

It was an exciting kick off for the season, and we have a lot of work to get done to keep up with the demand. Don't hesitate to come out and throw in a helping hand at SAGE, enjoy some pizza and good conversation Tuesdays 4-7pm!

The Food Allergy Herbal Formula-2 (FAHF-2) Laundry List

So in all the time I've been writing about our experience with FAHF-2, I have never done a comprehensive post with all the links/info I've found over the years. Consider the situation rectified! I'll add to this as I find new sources. If you have good ones, please feel free to add them to the comments as well.

Liberal, Overbearing, New Age, Alternative Medicine Food Allergy Moms

My mom called the other night.

"I talked to your cousin Donna last night. I told her she should call you. She's into a lot of the same stuff you're into."

"Um...what stuff would that be, Mom?"

"You know...all that stuff about the bees and GMOs and vaccines, honey. I told her you knew a lot about it and would be happy to talk with her."

YIKES! Since when did having a kid with food allergies automatically qualify me for the willing-to-accept-every-random-theory club?

As you guys know, I do a lot of reading and I have come to think there may be something to some of the alternative theories out there, particularly around pesticides and antibiotics killing off symbiotic gut bacteria. But I've also spent 25 years of my career firmly submerged in Western medicine and my mother knows this. So what the heck happened here?

A week later, I wondered it all over again as I read this article on Slate. It's apparently debunking an Elle magazine story that link…
