Remember right around Christmas time when I reviewing the book I'm Dreaming of a Green Christmas? Well, brilliant author and green-mom Anna Getty has done it again. This time, her book 'Easy Green Organic' isn't just about greening up the holidays, its about being green all the time!
What I love most about Anna's books is that she seems to come right into your home and speak directly to you. She has this way with her words that softens up and warms even the darkest green hearts. Recipes? Oh yeah, she does not disappoint in that arena either. Let me tempt you with some Quinoa Croquettes with Cilantro Yogurt Cream Sauce. Maybe you would rather serve up some Fried Polenta with Sauteed Wild Mushrooms in a Chipotle Cream Sauce. Is soup your down fall? How about Chunky Tuscan Bean Soup with Swiss Chard and Pancetta? Well, no matter what your food weakness, Anna has you covered. Seeing as though I am pregnant ALL DESSERT calls out to me. I especially love the Pear and Blueberry Crisp with Brown Sugar Sour Cream.
Don't let my crazy food brain fool you in to thinking that this book is all about food because it is not. It also has a wonderful array of "did you knows". I love facts and quotes. They are some of my favorite things. Take this fact from Anna's book for example, Did you know that " The US Food and Drug Administration estimates that roughly 20 pounds of pesticides per person are used every year. And of those pesticides, at least 59 are classified as carcinogenic." (cancer-causing) It is not at all surprising to me that the FDA would allow the use of such dangerous pesticides. I mean look at the amounts of chemicals and toxins that are allowed in to your shampoos and lotions.
This book is a real eye-opener. It helps you gain knowledge about organic produce and it also helps you learn what choices to make when it comes to eating organic. Eating organic produce is becoming less expensive than it use to be. It is also more readily available. Dr. Alan Greene said once that if you only had to choose two organic foods to eat, make those choices apples and potatoes since they are some of the highest pesticide laden foods.
