Beet Salad Recipe
8 medium-size beets, tops removed and scrubbed
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1/2 cup good olive oil
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, such as Grey Poupon
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces baby arugula
1/3 cup roasted, salted Marcona almonds, toasted
4 ounces soft goat cheese, such as Montrachet, crumbled
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Wrap the beets individually in aluminum foil and place them on a sheet pan. Roast them for 50 minutes to 1 hour, depending on their size, until a small sharp knife inserted in the middle indicates that they are tender. Unwrap each beet and set aside for 10 minutes, until cool enough to handle. Peel the beets with a small, sharp knife over a piece of parchment paper to prevent staining your cutting board.
Meanwhile, whisk together the vinegar, olive oil, mustard, 2 teaspoons salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper and set aside. While the beets are still warm, cut each one in half and then each half into 4 to 6 wedges and place them in a large mixing bowl. As you’re cutting the beets, toss them with half of the vinaigrette (warm beets absorb more vinaigrette), 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Taste for seasonings.
Place the arugula in a separate bowl and toss it with enough vinaigrette to moisten. Put the arugula on a serving platter and then arrange the beets, almonds, and goat cheese on top. Drizzle with additional vinaigrette, if desired, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and serve warm or at room temperature.

1 pound jicama (about 1 large), peeled
2 large beets, trimmed and peeled
2 large carrots, peeled and cut into 3-inch lengths
2 large navel oranges
3 to 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (about 2 to 3 limes)
2 to 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/4 cup unsalted peanuts, toasted and coarsely chopped
Using a mandolin or very sharp knife, julienne the jicama, beets, and carrots and combine in a large bowl.Slice off the ends of the oranges. Using a paring knife, remove the peel and pith from the oranges, following the curve of the fruit. Slice on either side of the membranes to remove the segments. Transfer the orange segments to the jicama mixture.Squeeze enough juice from the membranes into a bowl, to make 1/4 cup. Whisk the lime juice into the orange juice. While whisking, drizzle in the oil to make smooth vinaigrette. Pour the vinaigrette over jicama mixture, toss to coat, and season with salt and pepper.Transfer the jicama salad to a platter and sprinkle with the peanuts.

Require GMO labeling in Florida...
Florida citizens have a right to know what is in the food they buy. Labeling of GMO foods will allow shoppers to make a choice whether or not to purchase GMO products. Serious health effects have been proven to result from the consumption of genetically modified organisms. Let us be informed consumers.
That's why I signed a petition to The Florida State House and The Florida State Senate, which says:
"Require labeling of GMO-containing foods in the State of Florida, to include animal products that have been raised on GMO feed."

Morphing Organic Food?
Next time you're in the supermarket, stop and take a look at Stonyfield Farm yogurt. With its contented cow and green fields, the yellow container evokes a bucolic existence, telegraphing what we've come to expect from organic food: pure, pesticide-free, locally produced ingredients grown on a small family farm.
So it may come as a surprise that Stonyfield's organic farm is long gone. Its main facility is a state-of-the-art industrial plant just off the airport strip in Londonderry, N.H., where it handles milk from other farms. And consider this: Sometime soon a portion of the milk used to make that organic yogurt may be taken from a chemical-free cow in New Zealand, powdered, and then shipped to the U.S. True, Stonyfield still cleaves to its organic heritage. For Chairman and CEO Gary Hirshberg, though, shipping milk powder 9,000 miles across the planet is the price you pay to conquer the supermarket dairy aisle. "It would be great to get all of our food within a 10-mile radius of our house," he says. "But once you're in organic, you have to source globally."
More Than 80% Of Our Packaged Foods Are BANNED In Other Countries!
If you or your kids enjoy pre-packaged convenience foods commonly found in grocery stores across the U.S. such as Froot Loops, Swanson dinners, Mountain Dew, and frozen potato and bread products, you may think twice before purchasing them after hearing what they contain: dangerous chemicals that other countries around the globe have deemed toxic to the point that they're illegal, and companies are fined hundreds of thousands of dollars for including them in food products.

Top 10 Stress-free Organic Foods
A German study in Psychopharmacology found that vitamin C helps reduce stress and returnblood pressure and cortisol to normal levels after a stressful situation. Vitamin C is also well-known for boosting your immune system.
2. Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes can be particularly stress-reducing because they can satisfy the urge you get for carbohydrates and sweets when you are under a great deal of stress. They are packed full of beta-carotene and other vitamins, and the fiber helps your body to process the carbohydrates in a slow and steady manner.
Apricots are rich in magnesium, which is a stress-buster and a natural muscle relaxant as well.
4. Almonds, Pistachios & Walnuts
Almonds are packed with B and E vitamins, which help boost your immune system, and walnuts and pistachios help lower blood pressure.
Turkey contains an amino acid called L-tryptophan. This amino acid triggers the release of serotonin, which is a feel-good brain chemical. This is the reason why many people who eat turkey feel relaxed, or even tired, after eating it. L-Tryptophan has a documented calming effect and is also found in some teas.
A deficiency in magnesium can cause migraine headaches and a feeling of fatigue. One cup of spinach provides 40 percent of your daily needs for magnesium.
Diets high in omega-3 fatty acids protect against heart disease. A study from Diabetes & Metabolism found that omega-3s keep the stress hormones cortisol and adrenaline from peaking.
The monounsaturated fats and potassium in avocados help lower blood pressure. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute says that one of the best ways to lower blood pressure is to consume enough potassium (avocados have more than bananas).
9. Green Vegetables
Broccoli, kale, and other dark green vegetables are powerhouses of vitamins that help replenish our bodies in times of stress.
Beef gets a bad rap because of the high fat content. But, lean beef, especially natural organic grass fed beef contains high levels of zinc, iron, and B vitamins, which help to stabilize your mood during stressful environments.
