The Power of a Plant
The Power of a Plant tells the story of a green teacher from the Bronx who let one idea germinate into a movement and changed his students’ lives by learning alongside them. Since greening his curriculum, Ritz has seen near-perfect attendance and graduation rates, dramatically increased passing rates on state exams, and behavioral incidents slashed in half. In the poorest congressional district in America, he has helped create 2,200 local jobs and built farms and gardens while changing landscapes and mindsets for residents, students, and colleagues. Along the way, Ritz lost more than 100 pounds by eating the food that he and his students grow in school. The Power of a Plant is his story of hope, resilience, regeneration, and optimism.
This book was written by my friend Heather Cristo. She's an amazing chef and I always recommend her blog and books for beautiful healthy food ideas and creations.
Allergen-free cooking has never been easier or more appealing than in these recipes made entirely without dairy, soy, nuts, peanuts, gluten, seafood, cane sugar, or eggs. Created by a mother (and power blogger) whose young children were diagnosed with severe food allergies and herself has multiple food sensitivities, this collection of family-friendly recipes means no more need to make multiple meals; everyone can enjoy every single dish because all are free of the major allergy triggers. With an 8-week elimination diet to help readers identify allergens and a game plan for transitioning to a cleaner, safer way of eating that is kid-tested and parent-approved, Pure Delicious changes cooking for the family from a minefield to an act of love.
