"He who knows what sweets and virtues are
in the ground, the waters, the plants, the
heavens, and how to come at these
enchantments, is the rich and royal man."

What the World Eats in a Week:

A Dollar A Day! $1/person/day

A Dollar A Day!  $1/person/day
We were blown away by all the Coke and other multi-national labels in the hungry planet video clip above that seemed to permeate the tables and kitchens all over the world! It would appear us Earthlings can't live without our sugar water (or make that high fructose corn syrup water). Our backdrop is the only Pepsi you'll see in this month's photos. Aleli has nicknamed this old half of a tin sign, " Food Shortage".

Tuesday, August 5

Beans, beans the wonderful fruit

The word of the day is BEANS! Here are some images and moments from yesterday, August 4.

For both lunch and dinner we had two variations of leftover beans. Above is Aleli's reheat of the night before. James totally kicked it up a notch last night though by adding cheese and other savory ingredients, and by starting it all off with these awesome fried cinnamon/ sugar tortilla triangles.Mmmmmm, sooo good! Quite delectable! Unfortunately we don't have any pictures of his dinner. Aleli was feeling downright cranky, hungry, tired, covered in prickly pear thorns (ouwie!James fingers were a pin cushion too) and unphotogenic. No pictures, please. Word to the wise: Changing your diet overnight can also change your outlook! Alot!

Anyway, the three older kids and Aleli went romping through more public veggie gardens yesterday as well. Here are their finds and some pix to enjoy. Look for the teeny lizard that crawled onto the mustard greens sign in the pic with boy and blackberries. Adorable little reptile!

A food for thought video. A must see for all! Enjoy!

And now a word on organics. "Grocery Store Wars"

Food, Glorious Food!

A Dollar a Day is all it takes: Plumpy' Nut...... a life saver.....please watch and think
