Oil-Free Pesto Grilled Veggies

Over the past few days, I've started experimenting more with oil- and salt-free recipes (with no added sweeteners) ~ rather than making a blanket (so to speak) of oil- and salt-based flavors, this is a great opportunity to really experience the flavors of the food.

Voices from the Food Revolution Summit, Part 2

“We’re beginning to get across the notion that the radicals in this situation aren’t us.  What I want is a word a little like the one I was born into.  That’s a pretty conservative notion.  The radicals are the oil companies who want to alter the composition of the atmosphere.”  Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org… Continue reading Voices from the Food Revolution Summit, Part 2
