A scientifically proven, safe and effective program to help boost your chances of conceiving, ensure a healthy pregnancy, avoid gestational diabetes and give your baby the best possible start toward lifelong health.
The Low GI Eating Plan for an Optimal Pregnancy -- written by the world's leading experts on the glycemic index (GI) -- will help you to clearly understand the connection between the food you eat, your blood glucose levels and your baby's future health.

- What to be aware of once you're eating for two
- How to ensure your weight gain is healthy
- The importance of blood glucose in pregnancy (and why gestational diabetes is a big deal)
- 8 guiding principles that make it easy to put everything into practice
- The best foods to eat-as well as the ones to avoid

Whether as a way to manage challenging economic times or retain a garden's bounty, root cellars are making a big comeback.
This book takes a fresh look at the art, science and romance of building and stocking a root cellar. There are detailed, illustrated construction guides for making four different kinds of root cellars that are functional and attractive. These include never-before-seen models for apartment and condo dwellers and home owners without a basement.
The Complete Root Cellar Book provides technical information on using photovoltaics (solar cells) and other energy technologies to enhance a root cellar's performance and ecological sustainability. It also includes must-know information on how to choose, store and manage a supply of fruits, vegetables, nuts and preserves.
The book features 100 recipes that call for stored produce, many of which also make use of the root cellar's specific environment, such as sauerkraut and barrel-fermented dill pickles. These classic dishes, many with new twists, include:
- Classic leek and potato soup
- Golden puffed potato puddings
- Maple pecan crumble apple pie
- Classic carrot cake
- Spiced pear butter
- Three-onion relish
Millions of acres of land have been contaminated by pesticides, improperly handled chemicals, dirty energy projects, toxic waste, and other pollutants in the United States and Canada. This toxic legacy impacts the environment, our health, our watersheds, and land that could otherwise be used to grow healthy local food and medicines. Conventional cleanup techniques employed by government and industry are tremendously expensive and resource-intensive and can cause further damage. More and more communities find themselves increasingly unable to rely on those companies and governments who created the problems to step in and provide solutions.
Earth Repair describes a host of powerful grassroots bioremediation techniques, including:
- Microbial remediation - using microorganisms to break down and bind contaminants
- Phytoremediation - using plants to extract, bind and transform toxins
- Mycoremediation - using fungi to clean up contaminated soil and water

Fermented foods have proven beneficial for a number of health conditions including candida overgrowth, IBS and digestive difficulties, sugar/carb cravings, and other inflammatory disorders. What's more, science is starting to show that our modern lifestyle of completely eschewing bacteria via pasteurized foods, hand sanitizers, disinfectants and antibiotics is actually making us more, not less, susceptible to illness and allergies. Regular inclusion of fermented foods in the diet naturally combats bad bacteria and strengthens the immune system. Fermented Foods for Health includes meal plans of fermented foods for addressing specific ailments and repairing the metabolism. Author Deirdre Rawlings includes 75 delicious recipes that show readers how to ferment everything from meats to vegetables, fruits and dairy. She explains how to use each for specific health benefits, such as balancing the body's PH, increasing enzyme production and strengthening immunity.
