Dandelion también conocido como 'diente del león' es una planta herbácea comestible que se ha utilizado durante muchos siglos. Hay una razón por la cual ha sobrevivido y se mantiene dentro de nuestra dieta. Los estudios han demostrado que es una fuente rica de vitaminas y minerales. Las ojas verdes en particular, tienen el mayor contenido de vitamina A. Los dientes de león también se pueden utilizar como una excelente fuente de desintoxicación. Se sabe que ayudan a eliminar el exceso de agua y, debido a sus cantidades relativamente altas de colina, son un nutriente tan importante para el hígado. Impresionante ¿verdad? Puede encontrar este alimento rico en nutrientes y medicinales todos los miercoles en nuestro mercado de 8:30 am a 1:30 pm

Dandelion also known as 'tooth of the lion' is a herbaceous edible plant that has been used for many centuries. There's a reason why it has survived and maintained within our diet. Studies have shown that it is a rich source of vitamins and minerals. The greens in particular, have the highest vitamin A content of all greens. Dandelions can also be used as an excellent source of detoxification. They are know to help flush out excess water and because of its relatively high amounts of choline, they are such an important nutrient for the liver. Impressive right? You can find this medicinal, nutrient rich food every Wednesday at our market from 8:30 AM - 1:30 PM°

In our third year, we have decided to participate in Clemson University’s CollabFest 2019, a four day event that features an Art, Film, Food and Tech track. For this event, we’ve teamed up with @clemsonfoodsummit2018 to co-sponsor Thibaut Fagonde’s made-in-Charleston documentary, Overalls and Aprons. Join us on March 2nd, to view this award-winning film, learn about the associated movement, and attend panel discussions led by the Food Summit. #foodsummit #collabclemson #fooddocumentary #charleston #documentary
Every season we try to grow something that we hadn't grown before. This season, we picked #kohlrabi and it's starting to show it's beautiful self! If you haven't had kohlrabi before, pick some up next time you see it. You can eat the leaves attached raw or cooked like any greens. The smaller bulbs tend to be more tender and flavorful, but the large ones are also fine for cooking and eating. In taste and texture, kohlrabi reminds me of peeled broccoli stems with a bit of peppery radish thrown in. °

Sharing is caring and oh, do we love to share our harvests with our human friends and our non-human ones. By letting some of our plants go to seed in this case broccoli, we nurture the way plants come to an end by also providing beautiful blooms for our hardworking bees. Once these blooms dry out, we can then harvest the seeds for a new season of growth. Did you know that these beautiful clusters of yellow blooms are edible? Their scent is very mild and has more of a vegetal aroma rather than floral. Broccoli flowers have a flavor reminiscent of broccoli leaves, peppery with a sweet honeyed finish. °

Youth Food Leadership and Advocacy Program
DSISD Student Intensive at Sprout City Farms

Students learned about CSA's - Community Supported Agriculture. In case you don't know what that means, A CSA is where people buy shares in a community farm in exchange for receiving fruits and vegetables throughout the harvest season from that same farm.

Every person helping out this mission plays a major role in solving food insecurity! Our two strong and fierce volunteers got the low down on a day in the life of The Bulb, from rescuing food from @traderjoes , to sorting food at our storage spot at @friendshiptrays to learning how easy it is to set up and break down a market! We are excited to amp up our volume of volunteers this year as the more people on board, the more people we reach! Join us daily on our food rescue journey! DM for deets or visit our website! .

Cuando compre guisantes frescos en la vaina, elija vainas pequeñas y medianas, ya que las grandes han madurado más, lo que significa que los guisantes pueden ser menos tiernos y dulces. Evite las vainas que estén agrietadas o flojas, ya que deberían estar abultadas por las semillas que están dentro. Una vaina con buenos guisantes emitirá un chasquido cuando lo rompas y los guisantes que estén adentro deben ser pequeños, de color verde brillante, tiernos y dulces. Encuentrelas todos los miercoles de 8:30 AM - 1:30 PM

When buying fresh peas in the pod, choose small to medium-sized pods, as the large ones have matured more, meaning that the peas may be less tender and sweet. Avoid pods that are cracked or limp — they should be bulging from the seeds inside. A pod with good peas will make a snapping sound when you break it and the peas inside should be small, bright green, tender, and sweet. Find them at our market every Wednesday from 8:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Be water wise and pick up this beautiful Mexican sage at our market next Wednesday. Mexican sage is a bushy shrub that grows 3-4 ft. tall and wide. It has hairy white stems, gray-green leaves and velvet like purple flower spikes that bloom summer through fall. This shrub tolerates sun, light shade, little water, and is hardy to 15 degrees F. If you love hummingbirds this is the plant for you because they love it! °

Sea prudente con el agua y recoja este hermoso sabio mexicano en nuestro mercado el próximo miércoles. La salvia mexicana es un arbusto espeso que crece de 3 a 4 pies de alto y ancho. Tiene tallos blancos vellosos, hojas de color verde grisáceo y terciopelo como espigas de flores púrpuras que florecen desde el verano hasta el otoño. Este arbusto tolera el sol, la sombra, la poca agua y es resistente a 15 grados F. Si amas a los colibríes, ¡esta es la planta para ti porque a ellos les encanta. °

That’s a wrap on our takeover! Thanks for hanging out with us this week. Like our local food summit, slow food international also brings together food advocates, producers, growers, and educators for their own bi-annual conference. Pictured above you can catch a glimpse of the different foods and activities that make up this event. Looking back on this makes us even more excited for this month’s Local Food Summit in Ann Arbor! Be sure to give us a follow @slowfoodhuronvalley and we can’t wait to see you all on Saturday 2/16 for the next Local Food Summit! #localfoodsummit2019 #localfood #eatlocal #localfoodsystem #slowfood #terramadre #foodadvocacy

Cauliflower is low in calories and high in vitamins. No wonder it has become a classic staple in the kitchen and raplacing many dishes like rice for #cauliflowerrice and chicken for #cauliflowerchickenwings. Make sure you pick yours up next Monday. °

Find this beautiful California purple sweet potato with @don_betos_farms on your next visit to our market. When cooking, the key is to bake it for longer than regular sweet potatoes, and at moderate heat, about 90 to 120 minutes at 350 degrees, at which point it becomes pleasingly moist!

Encuentre esta hermosa batata morada de California con @don_betos_farms en su próxima visita a nuestro mercado. Al cocinar, la clave es hornearlos durante más tiempo que las batatas comunes, y a fuego moderado, alrededor de 90 a 120 minutos a 350 grados, momento en el cual se humedece agradablemente.

This is me on a camping trip a year and a half ago. At the time I was serving as an AmeriCorps volunteer, as were the two ladies with me in the photo. As AmeriCorps, the three of us were each living, paying rent in Denver, buying gas, everything on $800 a month stipends. As part of our training we were encouraged to sign up for SNAP, otherwise known as food stamps. I truly wouldn’t have made it through that year without the extra grocery money. .
The other day NPR posted an article about how SNAP and other food assistance programs are being affected by the shutdown. The photo they used was of an overweight woman shopping with her child. She looks like a loving mother engaging her child in the grocery shopping process. However, the use of her photo plays into a tired stereotype about food assistance recipients, especially SNAP (food stamps) recipients. Comments flooded in reflecting the widespread and ill-informed opinions of those that believe these stereotypes. Lots of comments about how this women “doesn’t need to eat” or “hasn’t missed a meal in a long time”. .
When you’re challenged to feed an entire family on a very small and fixed budget, it is typical to rely on nutrient-poor but calorie-dense foods high in sugar and sodium. Poor weight and diet related diseases run rampant in our low-income communities as a result. .
Please consider yourself lucky if you’ve been able to think about your meals as an investment in yourself and not another monthly expense your family couldn’t afford. And please acknowledge that poverty isn’t simply about money, it stretches into every aspect of living, health coming first.
Yogurt is a cultured (fermented) food with billions of probiotic bacteria. Probiotics aid in breaking down nutrients for better absorption. This not only improves digestion, it allows the body and brain to better use the nutrients we consume. Recent research suggests a link between good gut health and good mental health. #bonjouryogurt has a flavor for everyone, don't miss them every Wednesday from 8:30- 1:30 PM.

Last time I checked on these two they were babies. With our recent rain they each grew bigger than both my hands put together. °

Today on Martin Luther King Jr. Day I have been thinking a lot about what it means to be an ally for marginalized communities and BIPOC.✨

Food insecurity, health equity, land sovereignty are all issues that disproportionately affect people in marginalized communities thanks to centuries of policies, and discrimination that continue today.✨

And now with the state of climate change and our planet in distress, we are looking to the lifestyle and actions of the very people we marginalized.✨

Indigenous populations have always respected our planet, our food, and our relationship with it. Now there is a movement to live more sustainably, regenerate our soil, and reconnect with our environment...this movement isn't new or original, it's rooted in the values and practices of indigenous people✨

These are the voices that need to be heard, followed, and learned from, and this is one of my main priorities for 2019. To learn more about the indigenous communities and history of the lands I travel to (especially those right within my own region), to share their stories and not just my experiences, to use my reach and education to continue to advocate for health equity, land and food sovereignty, and sustainability...and to bring you all deeper into this conversation and state of awareness with me.✨

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you’ve all had time to rest and rejuvenate mind, body and spirit this festive season.
May 2019 be a year of making difference towards building, supporting and advocating for a healthy, sustainable and fairer food system. As this great Lonely Planet book for kids shows, there are many small ways to change the world, including buying locally produced food.
I’m going to be less active on social media over January. I’m taking the time to focus on family and reading a book. I’m on a mission to finish Charles Massy’s, Call of the Reed Warbler, which is a really informative and inspiring read.
Pumpkin, okra, long bean, chinese eggplant, tofu, red chilies, garlic, ginger, onion, and shrimp paste stewed in coconut milk. My first time making ginataan anything and I felt this one deep in my soul.
I recently learned (from @leahpenniman) that West African mothers and grandmothers braided seeds into their children’s hair before crossing the Atlantic and being sold into slavery. It was unknown to most what would happen to their family members on that journey, but the act of braiding seeds meant that these women had the hope that, whatever the future held, their daughters would live, plant, and eat again.
Cheers to a new year of gratitude, resilience, hope and soul. #HappyNewYear
@ocasio2018 one of many new faces leading changes for the new year. Thrilled to see what happens next for resources we deserve #foodadvocacy #repslikeus #cortez #newface
Yesterday at the farmer's market I was buying some butter lettuce & sorrel when the farmer goes, "And we're giving away romaine for $1."
.
.
It feels like the most gangster act in America: Ignoring media & trusting your own powers of knowledge & intuition. .
.
This lettuce is safe. .
.
I knew it before I ate it. I looked the man in the eye who grew it. AND IT WAS FUCKING DELICIOUS!!!! .

Good things happen through #gastrodiplomacy!
🐠
Back in 2015 we united fishing experts, international chefs, politicians, fishing industry representatives, press, academics and seafood councils together in Newfoundland to challenge government legislation which prevented restaurants from buying seafood directly from the fishers whose ships docked literally 20 feet from their restaurants each day. And guess what? WE WON!
🐠
Our big victory meant restaurants could buy 300lb of stock (per species, per week) and prompted an industry shift in perspective.
🐠
Here’s to many more talks, round tables and ACTION in years to come!

**Message from Desi** Mommy, Daddy, and I are at Northwest School of the Arts for @carolinafarmtrust screening of The Farmer That Feeds Us. #familytime #foodadvocacy #loveyourveggies #localfarmers
Jean Blish Siers never fails to amaze us with her dedication to her work at Society of St. Andrews. This organization is a gleaning system in which 10,000 lbs of potatoes were gleaned this morning! We are honored to be able to partner with such hard working food advocates that aim to get fresh and local food to food sovereignty programs like The Bulb, @loavesfishesnc @friendshiptrays and more! We can all conquer food insecurity as a team! Our potatoes and other rescued items will be going to seniors without access of transportation. .

What does food rescue mean or look like to you? To us, this picture indicates 600 people being served this week. It also looks like one entity’s donation. Imagine this : all corporate entities, all non profit entities, and all food related ventures coming together as one to reduce food waste and increase food security. To be a part of this massive mission join us on site today at Renaissance West from 430-630 or contact us today!

I have an enormous amount of gratitude to be welcomed into a group of women farmers and small business owners for their annual Christmas gathering at @wildcanaryeat.
Jacki from @blue_dog_farm invited me along and despite having so much to do before the kids finish school/ kindy for the year, I decided to choose good food and good company over work. And I’m so glad I did! It was an absolute joy to swap stories with such a passionate group of women at a cafe that supports and promotes local farmers and producers. I ordered the loop bowl which was a menu item celebrating the wonderful produce direct from small-scale farmers @loop.growers in Samford. Thank you @woggoon_farm @pretty.produce @scrumdiddliumptious_catering @9dorffarms @blackcroworganics @thesourcespringfield
My heart is full ❤️
Last month I had the opportunity to participate in two panels as part of the inaugural San Diego Food Tank Summit. Here’s the footage of the one I moderated: "Farming for a Better Food System" (it starts at about 1:37): http://sdfoodtravel.com/food-tank-summit-farming-for-a-better-food-system/

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the issues raised in the discussion.

Nutrition education and Food Advocacy will be integrated into their PE program as a graduation requirement. We couldn't be more thrilled to share this news!!! #foodadvocacy #foodadvocate #youthleader #youthleadership #youthleaders #nutrition #nutritioneducation #nutritionedicator
Consumer or citizen? Who am I? Why does it even matter?
.
On the outside we look the same. It’s on the inside where the differences are.
A consumer mindset implies minimal, or no, connection to how food is grown and processed, and removes us from thinking more broadly about food and the impacts it has on things like the environment or the people involved in the food chain.
With a citizen mindset we start to think about food more broadly than just something that we put in our mouths. We’re someone who is informed, and deliberate in our actions when it comes to food.
.
Becoming a food citizen starts when we check in with our values about what’s important to us. It starts with finding out what other options exist. This leads to becoming more engaged in building and supporting a healthy, sustainable and fair food system.
That’s where our power exists as a food citizen. The power to influence the future of our food system for the better. So who are you? A consumer or a food citizen?
