We are buying organic, eating in season and buying locally. Our meat is grassfed, our bread in homebaked and I feel good about what my family is eating.

In April 2014, at the age of 22, I was diagnosed with a severe tree nut allergy. Yes -- adult onset food allergies. It started with just tree nuts, and I only reacted if I actually ate one.

I'm a self-sustaining woman; I live on my own, I am in graduate school, I work full time, and I have a man-child (my boyfriend). My world was pretty much turned upside down by these food allergies, and aside from the insurmountable learning curve I have had, and continue to endure, everyday life still proves to be a challenge in ways that most people without food allergies don't even think about. So, the next time you encounter a person with food allergies, I hope you remember some of these points -- even just one would be helpful to know.

Onions are a crucial ingredient in almost any delicious meal. But you might not know that they have some great health benefits, too, and not just when it comes to nutrition!

Simply cut an onion in half and hold it on the burn until the pain goes away. The juices act as an immediate pain reliever, and the onion's natural antiseptic properties can prevent scarring and reduce the risk of infection.

Reports that 80% of Ukraines soybean crop is grown from illegal genetically-modified seeds are "probably true," Mykola Kovalski, chief strategy officer at Astarta, told the Agrimoney Investment Forum.

Astarta, a Ukrainian agribusiness which is the country's largest sugar producer, buys non GM seeds from Canada, Mr Kovalski said. The non-GM meal produced means the company receives a premium for its product. But Mr Kovalski noted that it was "difficult to estimate" the scale of GM planting across the country, with fields of non-GM and GM soybeans plant "It is a problem for us" he said.

Carrol Krause, a former reporter for the Herald-Times of Bloomington, Indiana, had to retire from her journalism career because of an ovarian cancer diagnosis in 2014.

A few months ago she started having digestive issues and could no longer eat normal food. What hospice workers brought her as meal replacements horrified her. Krause writes: "Hospice had the very best of intentions, [but] the stuff they sent over was not real FOOD. In fact, I'm outraged at the idea that they feed this stuff to dying people." What the hospice provided to Krause was a bag full of products by Ensure: pudding, shakes, and a drink that pretends to be apple juice.

A lot of people today, horrified by how animals are treated in factory farms and feedlots, and wanting to lower their ecological footprint, are looking for healthier alternatives.

As a result, there is a decided trend toward pasture-raised animals. One former vegetarian, San Francisco Chronicle columnist Mark Morford, says he now eats meat, but only "grassfed and organic and sustainable as possible, reverentially and deeply gratefully, and in small amounts." Sales of grassfed and organic beef are rising rapidly. Ten years ago, there were only about 50 grassfed cattle operations left in the U.S. Now there are thousands.

I have a few disclaimers about these crazy rolls, which I made yesterday on a whim since I had half a batch of cinnamon roll dough leftover from Saturday.

I was working with no recipe whatsoever, and had no plan. The idea came together in about 5 minutes. Kind of like my idea to start a blog 10 years ago.

It may sound mind-boggling but it's a true story. An article was published in China, claiming that fake rice is being made using plastic. Unfortunately, it has not created any apparent alarm and no one is doing anything about it.

This is despite the fact that even a trace of plastic in our system could have serious effects on our digestive system and hormones. You cannot afford to imagine the effects if large amount of plastic enters our system. The world knows China for making those creative yet cheap products like tech items, toys and various consumer products. But food is entirely something else and it shouldn't be meddled with. China tops the list for producing pesticides, which also makes it highly likely that the food they produce is also loaded with pesticides.

The Food and Drug Administration is kicking off a review of the 1990s official definition of "healthy" at the urging of food companies and lawmakers.

How is it possible a sugary cereal could be considered healthy but not almonds, avocados and salmon? Because the science of healthy eating has changed since the Food and Drug Administration wrote the current guidelines in the 1990s. Believe it or not, none of those foods would be considered "healthy" under the FDA's current guidelines.
