Our community continues to grow. What a wonderful city we live in! This month it is my great pleasure to introduce our readers to some of the awe inspiring people that make up the fabric of our community and exemplify what it means to be Well FED. These individuals continue to help mold and shape our city into the unique place that I am so proud to call home. So, we begin this issue as we usually do, with Kelly Lockamy, who tirelessly devotes herself to the sustainable gardening movement (among so many other things…) and then on to Andy Schwartz, a young and intelligent entrepreneur and gardener, who sets an example for all young and socially conscious people who are ready to start getting more involved with their own food production. We’re also talking to Tracy Wilson this month; a local woman with a heart of gold…and a full time job, who started her own non-profit organization to address the needs of people in economic distress and help keep their animals fed. Some people have to choose between feeding themselves or their pets and Tracy is dedicated to helping them not have to make that decision any longer. We also visited with Adrienne Edge, a young mother with a full time job, who still finds the time to make her own homemade organic baby food. With the love and support of her husband, they have launched their own company, Tummy Time Foods; making it easier for other busy mothers to feed their children right. I was also pleasantly surprised when I received a submission from Georgia Southern student, Julia DiTillio. She shares with us her perspective on what she found when she decided to start looking deeper into her own eating habits. As always, we have some great recipes. One of our favorite chefs, Chris DiNello, shares his recipe for a great garden gazpacho. Then we also have another young, up and coming chef; owner of Crepe A Diem, Brittany Blackshear, teaches us how to make our own crepes at home. We are also happy to be working with Chad Lyon, a young and savvy restaurateur who will be regularly enlightening our readers about libations. Be sure to check out his piece on summer wines. Then, yet another young, progressive business owner: owner of Cup to Cup Roasters, James Spano, also gives us a great lesson on the origins of our favorite brew.You can check out both of their articles in our Drink section. This city is just brimming with so much dedication and talent! You can be rest assured that Well FED will continue to seek out those who are making a difference and setting the example. It is these folks who will shape our city and the city our children will inherit. We are honored to have them contribute to our publication and proud to tell their stories.

Medicinal

Plants

in the home garden

M

any of us are familiar with the use of herbs that strengthen our immune systems, calm the central nervous system and induce sleep. Did you realize you can grow these plants for your medicinal uses, just as you grow plants for food? I’d like to introduce the idea of making some of your own remedies with the plants from your own organic gardens, give a few simple ways of processing them into stable forms for storage, and provide some recommendations for use.

Immune strengthening:

We’ll start with a plant for boosting the immune system. Echinacea reigns supreme in ease of growing, simple processing and high effectiveness. When a 1 ounce bottle of tincture costs over $10, it makes good sense/ cents to learn how to make your own. Look for fresh seeds with the botanical name of Echinacea purpurea, this plant grows particularly well in residential gardens. It is native from Virginia to Iowa south to Georgia and Louisiana. It grows to one meter in height and has long stiff stems with one large cone shaped flower on each stem. This variety grows best in low elevations where the winters are mild so are perfect for coastal Georgia.

Pictured Above: Echinacea in Kelly’s own home garden Plants are easily found in nurseries as ornamental bedding flowers, check the Latin name to be sure you get the right kind. Seeds can be started indoors where the germination temperature can be regulated, 60-70 degrees is best. Keep moist by covering the seed tray with a plastic wrap or cover just until the seeds begin to emerge, then uncover and place outside in the sunlight. If started outdoors, you will need to plant in the spring or fall when the ground temperature is right. Plant outside in a full sun location when the first true leaves appear, that means the second set of leaves. Cultivate as you normally would for any garden plant with plenty of nutrient rich soil and regular watering. All parts of Echinacea are used as medicine, different plant parts are harvested separately. To use the roots, arguably the most potent part of the plant, means you must dig it up by the roots. Harvest of the root should take place in the 3rd or 4th year of growth, after the first frost kills back the aerial growth. The good news is that by this time the plant has multiplied and you can dig it up, preferably during a new moon phase, divide it, and process what you want for medicine. Replant the rest for flower and aerial harvesting in subsequent years, as its best root medicinal use has been reached. To keep a root harvest batch going, I’d advise seeding a new crop of Echinacea every year. Well FED 15


All aerial parts of the plant are medicinal and can be cut from the ground surface leaving the crown of the plant to re-grow. Cut the plant while in full bloom just after dew has dried, but not in the heat of the day for optimum medicinal quality. Process the harvest the same day, preferably within four hours (for fresh-herb tincture.)

Calming, antibacterial & antiviral Melissa officinalis, aka, Lemon Balm has a host of benefits from calming ADD & ADHD in kids to improving the mental functions of Alzheimer’s patients. Lemon balm and preparations thereof also have been shown to improve mood and mental performance. A topical lotion of it is used to cure cold sores. It can also be used effectively to ameliorate the symptoms of hyperthyroidism. (Contraindicated if taking thyroid medication such as thyroxine). If you have a math test to face, try drinking lemon balm tea as you study and before taking the test. Its cultivation is simple as it happens to be in the mint family and will thrive in well drained, yet moist soil. It prefers full sun but in our hot, and in recent years, dry climate, part shade in the afternoon is beneficial. The plants can be found in nurseries or grown by seed in spring or fall. It also spreads through sending out runners, so ask around and you may find a gardener more than willing to share the abundance. Tincturing Lemon Balm using the recipe given here is a great way to preserve the medicinal attributes. Drying the herb to use as a tea is simple and effective. Using a dehydrator is the best way to dry the herb quickly for retaining potency. Temperatures from 80-100 degrees are optimal. If they overheat, potency is lost and leaves begin to lose the vibrant green color. Hanging from bundles from the attic rafters is a time honored method. However, in our incredibly hot summer temperatures, it could be difficult to keep from overheating the herb. Good air circulation is essential. This article will have to be in several parts as there are so many herbs to tell you about. Please consider making room for these useful perennial herbs in your landscape and garden areas. It’s gratifying to know how to create medicines from the earth for your family and friends. Try it, you’ll see! 16

Harvesting the flowers throughout the blooming season can be done, preferably on a full to nearly full/waxing moon. Cut them before fully mature and process immediately. (tincture recipe follows)

Making a Tincture:

according to james green, herbalist and author of “the herbal medicine-maker’s handbook: a home manual” For our purposes here we’ll be using fresh herb, within 4 hours of harvest. Tincturing preserves more of the medicinal components for a longer shelf life than other methods of preservation.

1) Chop fresh plant into small pieces and stuff them into a canning jar, filling it to the top. Pack the herb into the jar very tightly. Get as much into the jar as you can, especially when working with a light herb. 2) Add either 100 proof or 190 proof ethyl alcohol, filling the jar to the top. Make sure all the herb is covered by the alcohol. (100 proof vodka works well and is readily available) 3) Cap jar tightly. Make sure you clean the rim thoroughly. For added assurance of a tight seal, a piece of wax paper can be used between the rim and the lid as a gasket. 4) Agitate the tincture frequently for 14 days. 5) Decant the liquid, press the remaining wet pulp, and combine the two liquids. 6) Filter if desired. 7) Bottle, tightly cap, and label.

I

have a confession to make… I love compost! I love what it does for my plants. I love the way a mature pile smells, feels, and looks. I love collecting food scraps from friends, local restaurants, and the farmers’ market to fill the bins at my house. I am a manure scavenger. If you have chicken manure that you would like to share please get in touch with me. Compost makes me happy. Compost makes me happy because I know that the scraps (some people call it trash, crazy right?!) I am mixing with leaves, manure, and newspaper will eventually become the food that feeds my plants and in turn feeds me. I fully understand that a large part of our society does not share my enthusiasm for compost but that is not going to stop me from encouraging others to go a little further and make a difference. Compost happens. It is a natural process that has taken place on this planet since long before Sir Albert Howard (If you do not know about this man, check him out) began his research and compost will remain an important part of life for generations to come. Chemical fertilizers and synthetic methods of feeding plants are obviously not natural and the further we get from natural methods, such as composting, the more trouble we are bound to encounter. Compost is absolutely loaded with life and activity. The hundreds of thousands of microorganisms present in just a spoonful of compost form an intricate web of decomposition through variances in temperature and nutrient availability. Next time you find yourself in the woods take some time to check around the base of a tree, remove the top couple inches of leaves and you will see how Mother Nature does her composting. The leaves fall and gather at the base of the tree over long periods of time; along with fungus that are naturally present in wooded areas numerous insects and microscopic bacteria break down the leaves to provide food (compost) that feeds the roots of the tree through it’s rhizosphere (look that one up, it’s a good word to know). What we humans are attempting to do by creating compost piles is to mimic nature by creating an environment where all of these microorganisms can thrive. Biomimicry is not just one of my favorite words to say but it is also quite an interesting idea to consider next time you contemplate spraying a chemical insecticide or spreading a synthetic fertilizer in your garden…is this how Mother Nature takes care of plant problems? Consider companion planting and using compost or making your own chemical free insect repellent to use on the plants that you and your family will be consuming… all together now- Biomimicry!

feed the food that feeds you by Andy Schwartz


Michael Pollan put it like this, “though we may be the earth’s gardeners, we are also its weeds. And we won’t get anywhere until we come to terms with this crucial ambiguity about our role- that we are at once the problem and the only possible solution to the problem.” I know what a list can do for people and I know how important it is for some folks to post lists as reminders and such so I am going to post a couple lists that I feel are very important for all of us to share with our neighbors, friends, church groups, and schools etc. safe for at home compost

Raw and uncooked fruit & vegetables Coffee grounds and filters Tea bags/loose leaf tea Eggshells/ non Styrofoam egg cartons Shredded paper (newspaper, copy paper) Grass clippings Leaves avoid using in home compost

*These items can be Meat/bones composted, but require Dairy more advanced methods. Bread/pasta Plastic (different kind of bin for that) Seafood scraps Here is another list that takes the above list just a bit further and helps us to understand that compost piles are more than just a heap of “veggie trash” green

(nitrogen

rich) materials

Nitrogen provides protein to microbes within the compost pile and assists in bacterial growth and reproduction. Veggie scraps, Coffee grounds, Grass clippings, Manure, Seaweed brown

(carbon

rich) materials

Carbon is the fuel of the compost pile; it provides microbes the energy to go about their daily work within the pile. Carbon also provides structural integrity in compost and allows for airflow in piles. Paper, Sawdust, Woodchips, Leaves Now that you have these lists to keep next to your kitchen sink, bathroom mirror, or wherever it is that you see fit it is time to get composting! A few more bits of info to consider when composting are the carbon/ nitrogen ratio and the method of composting.

The C/N ratio is an indicator of balance in a pile and for the most part as long as you do not have too much of one or the other your pile should remain well balanced. There are a number of differing opinions on what is the best ratio. For me the best method has always been to stay aware of what I put into the pile and pay attention to how well it breaks down. If you put too much nitrogen (wet green stuff) in your pile it will smell terrible and you will have a lot of flies no doubt. If you put too much carbon (paper, leaves, sawdust) you will have a big pile of carbon that will break down very slowly. So, when you go out to dump a bucket of veggie scraps in your pile make sure you take some shredded newspaper or some other carbon source as well. For more detailed information about composting, here is a site that I find very useful, www.the-compost-gardener.com As for methods of composting there are plenty and I have tried nearly all of them. I may be a bit old school in saying that piles are my favorite but that is just what I like and it may not work for you for any number of reasons. I also enjoy the convenience and ease of use that compost tumblers offer, not to mention they take up a lot less space. Here in Savannah many folks have small backyards, if they have one at all, so a neat and smallish container is probably best suited for most homes. If you do not have even a little bit of space to share with a compost bin of sorts then there are still options so do not give up on me yet. Community gardens are a great place to take your compost! Growing Edge community garden behind the West Broad St. YMCA is one option and the Starfish community garden on Gwinnett St. is another. Not only do they have space for compost they also have space for you to put that compost to use and try your hand at growing food. Savannah Urban Garden Alliance (SUGA) is full of friendly people that are more than willing to have a chat about compost or even help you organize a plot at one of the gardens so feel free to get in touch with them today at www.sugacentral.org and find out more. Every good compost talk must come to an end but do us all a favor and start as many compost related talks as possible this week, next week, and even the next week. Be careful though compost is pretty amazing and there is a lot to be learned about how to use it and how to make it, so take my advice and try not to get obsessed. Working with manure and food waste is my idea of a good time so if you are picking up what I’m dropping, feel free to contact me and we can talk about soil.

Tip

Introduce one food at a time. Offer the same food for 3-5 days before introducing the next. This allows you to see if your baby will have any adverse reactions to that particular food.

I was unhappy with offerings, as they were all canned or jarred and prepared in a way that destroyed most of the ingredients’ nutrients. The smell, nor the taste, was appealing to me, so I knew they would not appeal to my five month-old either. That was when I decided to take on the challenge of producing homemade baby food for him. I started off by preparing sweet peas, green beans, carrots, butternut squash, apples, peaches and pears. Eventually, I then graduated to combining flavors and adding proteins like chicken, fish and beans. What I had found was that preparing healthy meals for my little one, not only influenced the meals I prepared for my husband and myself, but it also inspired me to launch my own business.

A Healthy Alternative Preparing homemade baby food can be time consuming and extremely labor intensive. In a time when every minute counts and families are constantly on the go, I have created the perfect solution for getting more healthy and organic fruits and vegetables into your babies, toddlers and older children’s diets. Tummy Time Foods is an all-natural baby food made with local, organic ingredients.

Tip Introduce the rainbow! Offer your baby various types of vegetables and fruits. Even if they are not a personal favorite of yours they may become your baby’s favorite.

We select only the best seasonal produce to make food that is safe and healthy for introducing young palates to solid foods. Our products contain no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives. Each selection comes in an easy to use re-sealable pouch that easily travels with you. The pouches are frozen, acting as a natural preservative to maintain the food’s flavor, consistency and nutrients.

Buying Local Tummy Time Foods is a locally owned and independent company and we believe in supporting local businesses. By buying local, you are helping to strengthen the economy of the local community. Local businesses help to enhance the uniqueness of the Savannah area and have less of an impact on our environment, by requiring less transportation to get their goods to your door. While there are many other benefits of buying locally, the most important one, to me, is that you can have a personal role in encouraging your neighbor’s dreams. It takes a lot of tenacity to start and stay in business. By being a customer of local businesses, you are telling your family, friends and neighbors that you believe in them and want them to succeed. Get to know our local business owners. Buy local when you can. Supplement your usual grocery store run with a few products from the farmer’s market, a local shop or business each week. Consciously ask the question, “Can I get this somewhere locally instead of ordering online?”


Tip

For picky toddlers who run at the site of anything green, try disguising them in smoothies. Take vegetables like spinach, steamed carrots or kale and mix them with your favorite frozen mixed berries, bananas, avocados and juice. While baby may think he is getting a treat, you can pat yourself on the back knowing that he’s getting all of the daily veggies he needs. Destiny Fulfilled I have spent the past few years reflecting on my priorities, talents, desires and what I truly love. During this quest, I have discovered that if God has blessed you with gifts and innate talents, they are not for you—they are to be shared with others. This is the purpose of Tummy Time Foods. We want to encourage a healthy start for children in our community. We strive to educate parents on how to foster a healthy lifestyle for their children.We want to cultivate relationships with the local community that will be a source of empowerment to parents who are passionate about their children’s health and well-being. We are truly “growing the next generation, one tummy at a time.”

Tip Spice it up! Don’t be afraid to introduce spices and herbs in your baby’s selections. Try using cinnamon, ginger, curry powder and pepper. Fresh or dried herbs, such as basil, cilantro or dill can add an interesting flavor as well.

Lj’s

Favorite Apples Store bought applesauce may seem healthy, but can often times offer your baby more than you bargained for. Products like these can harbor added sugars like high fructose corn syrup, and yield amazingly low amounts of fiber. Try LJ’s Favorite Apples recipe to boost the nutritional goodness of what could be your baby’s favorite snack! 2 medium sized apples, peeled and sliced (Red or Golden Delicious recommended) ¼ cup water Add items to a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover saucepan and simmer on low for 10 minutes or until apples are tender. Carefully pour mixture into a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. For older babies or toddlers, you may pulse the mixture to provide a chunkier consistency. Try adding ground cinnamon, fresh ginger or a splash of vanilla to tickle baby’s palate.

My Food

flake. by Georgia Southern University Student,

Julia DiTillio

It’s been a source of good-natured teasing amongst my friends and family for years that I always somehow seem to be hungry, or at least willing to eat. Growing up, a home-cooked dinner was to be eaten every night, and no one left the table until everyone was finished eating. As I grew older and schedules got busier, we still always ate together, but I’d also scope out the kitchen for numerous after-hours snacks. Luckily, I’ve been blessed with a fast enough metabolism to keep up with my weird eating habits. However, when I got to college and the responsibility of feeding myself fell on one person--me--I started learning more about food than “it tastes good”. Now I had to consider cost. Many times, nutrition and ethics have been at the back of my mind. Low cost and high convenience have taken precedence as the factors dictating my food choices. Luckily, my rather unhealthy college meals came into question this year when I moved into an apartment with a fully-equipped kitchen. The first semester, I had high hopes of cooking for myself, but a lack of budgeting prowess led that dream to endless meals of ramen noodles. However, over Christmas break I negotiated a higher allowance for the semester, in exchange for better money management. I’ve grown into the domestic diva of my apartment this semester: I started out hunting down recipes and coupons, and then figured out how to plan a weekly menu. However, as much as I thought learned in my journey to kitchen master, it was all turned on its head after reading Michael Pollan’s Omnivore’s Dilemma and In Defense of Food and after watching “Food, Inc.” and “Fresh.” I realized how little I know about where my food comes from. This information is knowledge that makes you “wise”: it’s not necessarily pleasant to learn about or know, but you still bear the weight of it and can’t help applying it to yourself. I’ve been buzzing along, comfortably considering myself better off than most college students in the food department, but I got to thinking... How does a typical dinner for me measure up to the standards of good eating found in Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food, specifically his first set of rules: “Eat Food”?

26

My meal consisted of breaded chicken, mashed potatoes, and mixed vegetables and took about thirty minutes to prepare. But what, exactly, was I consuming? Before, I would have assumed chicken, whatever came in the instant mashed potato mix (potatoes and powdered milk?), and veggies. However, taking a closer look at the food labels taught me otherwise. Well FED


“Don’t eat anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food.” The chicken was a splurge for me: I bought it the day our class finished watching Food, Inc. and decided that instead of buying the usual, cheapest possible store brand meat, I’d splurge on the “nice” looking meat: Springer Mountain Farms Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast. The package’s slogan had one word: “Pure.” Paula Deen’s smiling face donned a huge portion of the packaging, and it also bore the seal of “American Humane Certified.” The package also bragged “no antibiotics ever”, “all vegetarian diet”, “no artificial ingredients”, and “minimally processed”. It cost me around $10 for six chicken breasts. I figured this was a reasonable price, considering that the week before I had woken up and vomited eight times in two hours after eating tacos made from a five pound pack of 75% lean ground beef that cost me only $9. The next part of my meal, mashed potatoes, were made using a mix: Idahoan. The box claimed, “Real Premium Mashed Potatoes”. The following is the ingredients list just for the flakes (more ingredients were added to transform these “potatoes” into an actually edible food): Idaho potatoes, salt, partially hydrogenated oil (one or more of the following: soybean, cottonseed, or sunflower), nonfat dry milk, monoglycerides, calcium stearoyl lactylate, spice, artificial color, natural and artificial flavor, sodium acid pyrophosphate, sodium bisulfite, artificial flavor, citric acid, mixed tocopherols added to protect freshness. Contains: milk, soy. In addition to the flakes, I needed to add milk and butter or margarine. The ingredients list on my Organic Valley 1% certified organic milk was rather short: organic grade A lowfat milk,Vitamin A Palmitate,Vitamin D3. The “margarine” I used, however, was a different story: the word margarine appeared nowhere on the label, and the food was instead referred to as “31% vegetable oil spread”. Below are the ingredients in my Blue Bonnet Light: Water, liquid soybean oil, partially hydrogenated soybean oil, maltodextrin, salt, vegetable monoglycerides (emulsifier), potassium sorbate and sodium benozate and calcium disodium edta (to preserve freshness), citric acid (acidulant), natural and artificial flavor, Vitamin A palmitate, colored by beta carotene (source of Vitamin A). Contains: soy.

In contrast, The vegetables had a refreshingly short list: broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. So, how did my meal measure up to Michael Pollan’s food rules? First, the most obvious and basic idea of the book: “Eat Food. Not too much. Mostly plants” (Pollan, 2008, p. 1). Was my meal food? Was it the right amount? Was it mostly plants? Just a few weeks ago, I would have scoffed at the first question. What ELSE would I be eating? Rocks? As for the portion size, I would say I had that pretty much under control: I always believed before that the balanced plate had one half filled with meat, one quarter each of starch and veggie. According to my former standards, I was getting an A in the portion department. Lastly, plants. I already knew that I should eat more vegetables. However, to a college student, a serving of veggies at each meal seems pretty accomplished. After all, they are just so dang expensive. What would Michael Pollan and my newly educated self have to say about this meal? Was I even eating food? To an outsider, it may seem ridiculous that Pollan has a chapter in In Defense of Food called “Eating Food: Food Defined” (Pollan, 2008, p. 147). However, taking a closer look shows that, sadly, Americans don’t even know what real food is anymore. This knowledge, which used to be inborn (Lettuce: good. Rock: bad. No eat rock.), now has to be told to us by others (dangerous: if we don’t seek out the right “other”, it will end up being a moneyhungry corporation). As I’ve learned, navigating the seemingly well-meaning grocery store is more confusing than it looks, and the more you learn about food, the more effort you put in. It’s not enough to simply read the books and watch the films: when at the grocery store or fresh market, one needs to make conscious decisions on every food he or she puts in the buggy. This is why Pollan developed his food rules: “Taking food’s place on the shelves has been an unending stream of foodlike substitutes, some seventeen thousand new ones every year--‘products constructed largely around commerce and hope, supported by frighteningly little knowledge.” (Pollan, 2008, p. 147). We judge food by its package and price. I would pick the healthiest-looking product with the lowest price tag. Companies know this, and work to put as many little trick selling points on a food’s packaging (lesson learned: avoid packaged foods). -Continued on next page.


The first part of telling whether a “food” is truly a food or just foodlike: “Don’t eat anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food” (Pollan, 2008, p. 148). My great grandma emigrated from Italy to America when she was nine years old. Food has always been a big deal in this family: made at home, eaten at home, at a table, as a family. Until the day she died (at age 108), Grandma even made her own pasta. I look at my mashed potato flakes and know that she would not recognize this substance as food. My 31% vegetable oil spread would appear to be some kind of paste, possibly used for oiling wood floors or cabinets. While the chicken appears natural and innocently wholesome, Grandma grew her own chickens. The first time my mother met her, Grandma came in the house in a bloodied apron from an afternoon with her chickens. This woman would not recognize the small, pink, slightly squishy lump we call chicken. From my meal of five main ingredients, my great grandmother, born and raised before the time of industrialized “food”, would recognize three. Pollan’s next rule: “Avoid food products containing ingredients that are A) unfamiliar, B) unpronounceable, C) more than five in number, or that include D) highfructose corn syrup” (Pollan, 2008, p. 150). It’s almost laughable how my “mashed potatoes” and “butter” stack up. Of the fourteen ingredients in my mashed potatoes (it could be more--the amount of different ingredients in “artificial and natural flavor” was not detailed) and the fourteen ingredients in my butter (also could be larger--the number of “mixed tocopherols” was not listed), I could pronounce ten and eleven ingredients, respectively, and was familiar with even less. Remarkably, neither contained high fructose corn syrup. Rule three: “Avoid food products that make health claims” (Pollan, 2008, p. 155). Equally remarkable is that these didn’t make any obvious, direct health claims like “Heart Healthy”. However, one could see the word “Light” on the Blue Bonnet and simply assume that this makes the food healthy. As Pollan states on page 155, “For a food product to make health claims on its package it first must have a package, so right off that bat it’s more likely to be a processed than a whole food.” Also what people don’t realize is that in making the Blue Bonnet “light”, some natural, familiar ingredients had to be taken out and substituted with unnatural, unpronounceable ingredients. “To make dairy products low fat, it’s not enough to remove the fat.You then have to go to great lengths to preserve the body or creamy texture by working in all kinds of food additives” (Pollan, 2008, p. 154). 28

Well FED

“I realized how little I knew about what I was putting into my body.” Briefly, the last two rules of what is “food” and what is food: “Shop the peripheries of the supermarket and stay out of the middle” and “Get out of the supermarket whenever possible” (p. 157). My mashed potatoes and vegetables were bought from some of the middle aisles in the grocery store. However, as Pollan also says, this strategy doesn’t always work--as evidenced by my vegetable oil spread lurking in the dairy section. This is why farmer’s markets and CSA boxes (filled with produce from local farms) are the best choice for shopping for fresh, whole foods: You won’t find any high-fructose corn syrup at the farmer’s market. You also won’t find any elaborately processed food products, any packages with long lists of unpronounceable ingredients or dubious health claims, nothing microwaveable, and, perhaps best of all, no old food from far away (Pollan, 2008, p. 157). So, how did what started out looking like a wholesome meal measure up to Pollan’s food rules? Was it food? In a way, yes. The chicken, vegetables, and milk are all food (although some doubts could be raised with the processed chicken). In contrast, the mashed potatoes and vegetable oil spread are in gross dissidence to the standards of what is food. Applying the information from “Food, Inc.” and “Fresh” and taking a closer look at my own eating habits using In Defense of Food as a reference, I realized how little I knew about what I was putting into my body. I hear so much about nocarb or no-fat diets and see packaged foods screaming out health claims, and it’s easy to base my diet off of that. Eating the foods that we as humans were made to eat takes work, money, and time. While I’m on a tight budget right now, I can still start making small steps to eat more naturally and humanely... starting with tossing my mashed potato flakes.

Flavor your salads with your own dressings By Suzanne Hobbs

The least visible ingredient gives summer salads the most flavor. It’s the dressing.

And since it’s a health strategy to eat more salad more often, it’s worth giving salad dressings more of your attention. Learn to make your own to save money and improve the flavor and nutritional value of your meals.

Think about what you put on your salads now.. Prepared salad dressings that you buy at the store are made to keep on the shelf for months and in your refrigerator for nearly as long. Sodium is one of the primary preservatives used to give these products their staying power. You don’t need it. Most of us should radically reduce our sodium intakes to protect our health. Just two tablespoons of many commercial salad dressings contain as much as 500 milligrams of sodium – about one third of the maximum you should consume each day. Rich dressings made with cream or sour cream and fatty cheeses such as Parmesan, feta, Roquefort and

bleu cheese add artery clogging saturated fat. By making dressings from scratch, you have more control over the ingredients and can limit ingredients such as these. And depending upon how you make your dressings, they can cost a fraction of what you pay for commercial brands. The basic ingredients – vinegar and oil, for example – are relatively inexpensive. Dressings made fresh in small batches also taste better than dressings made six months ago. They can be customized, too, to take advantage of fresh herbs and other ingredients in your garden.

Start with a simple vinegar and oil base and go from there.

Olive oil is the best all-around vegetable oil to use for this purpose. Mix your dressings shortly before you need them, though, because olive oil can harden into a waxy mass if you store it in the refrigerator for more than a few hours.

For variety, buy small bottles of flavored olive oil, such as blood orange or tarragon. Walnut oil is another healthful oil to try, and it gives salads a uniquely delicious flavor. Experiment with a blend of oil and vinegar to find the proportions you like best. Start with equal parts of each and go from there.

Take notes as you create your dressings so that you’ll remember how to make them when you hit on a favorite mix. Well FED

Vinegar comes in different varieties, too. I like white or red balsamic vinegar as well as rice vinegar and plain, old-fashioned cider vinegar. For a creamy dressing, try a base of nonfat, plain yogurt. You can blend it to make a sweet or savory dressing, depending upon your preference.

Customize dressings for variety. Add chopped, fresh herbs from your garden. They’re easy to grow, and you’ll save a lot of money by not relying on the supermarket to be your supplier. Some herbs – including chives and rosemary – grow in North Carolina year-round. Of course, salad dressing doesn’t have to be fancy. Grandma’s vinegar and oil – as plain as can be – is my favorite to this day. In it’s own stand out box - Visit the Well FED Facebook during the month of June to view links to some of our favorite recipes for healthy homemade salad dressings!

About the Author

For example, thin the yogurt with a little orange juice and a teaspoon or two of honey for a sweet dressing. Add poppy seeds for color and crunch. You can also thin yogurt to the desired consistency with a little nonfat milk. Add a teaspoon or two of mustard or minced onions to punch up the flavor.

Salt Table by Tony Judnich

P

repare to become hungry and inspired when you take your place at The Salt Table.

With more than 200 salts and seasonings, scores of dips, spreads and flavored sugars, and an assortment of coffee, tea, wine, vinegar, oils, organic popcorn and other treats, The Salt Table offers an explosion of flavors that arouse taste buds in anticipation of tasty creations. The store’s delicious essence first tempts visitors at the front door, which stands open to Barnard Street. There, the aromas of parsley, red pepper, minced onion, oregano and other seasonings drift outside and invite further exploration. “We don’t really give recipes for things, we give ideas,” says Carol Sellers, who owns The Salt Table with her fiancé, Dave Legasse. “We try to give people something that makes their food a little more unique.” Dave, who is originally from New Hampshire, and Carol, who is from Texas, have lived in Savannah for about a decade. 32 Well FED

Dave and Carol, Owners of Salt Table

They were motivated to open The Salt Table after a memorable Valentine’s Day experience in 2008 at a restaurant called “SALT” on Amelia Island, near Jacksonville, Fl. There, they were impressed with how the restaurant’s chefs paired entrees with various kinds of flavored salts.The couple began researching the long, fascinating history of salt – which included empires that bartered in the mineral - and became even more enamored. The Salt Table began lighting up culinary dreams last year, when it opened on the Fourth of July.

Salt talk

“Salt is amazing,” says Carol. “It’s the only rock that we eat, and we can’t live without it. It helps regulate the moisture levels in our bodies.” One of the unique displays at The Salt Table features brick-shaped, pink-streaked Himalayan Salt Plates, which can be used as a cooking stone on the grill or in the oven.


Known as the purest salt in the world, the salt that is formed into plates is mined from the Himalayan foothills in Pakistan and endorsed by the United Nations. Besides flavoring meats, the versatile salt plate can enhance appetizers or serve as a cheese tray or cutting board. In addition, salt can be graded from the plate and added onto food. The plate can be stored in the freezer and lasts several years, Dave says. “The secret is to keep it dry,” he notes. “When you’re working with it, it can evaporate juices from food real quick. It’s a matter of learning how to use it properly.” Besides learning from Dave and Carol, you can read about the care and use of the salt plates by checking out a guide at www.salttable.com. Other popular salts sold at The Salt Table include Ghost Pepper Sea Salt, which looks like crystalized fire. Made from pure sea salt and the Naja Jolokia pepper from India, it’s known as the hottest salt in the world. “You talk about a little going a long way!” Carol exclaimed. The store’s best-selling salt, however, is the Black Truffle Sea Salt, which provides a mushroom flavor and can be used to top pasta, beef and even popcorn.

Sample size me

Everything in the store that has “The Salt Table” name on it is packaged, bottled and labeled in the store’s basement, which Carol jokingly refers to as “the Salt Mine.” This area also includes a kitchen, where she and Dave experiment with new flavors for their business. For customers, one of the most fun parts of perusing the store is the ability to taste most of the products on its shelves.Want to get an idea of how Carol’s All ‘Round Good Grinder Blend would taste in a hamburger? Feel free to shake a bit of this mixture of 10 ingredients into one of the clear sample cups within easy reach and savor it for yourself. Wonder how raspberry or strawberry sugar would taste with your favorite beverage, or how Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato Dip and Spread Mix would taste on a sandwich? Or, have you ever tried organic popcorn made by Amish farmers in Indiana? Just follow the suggestion on signs throughout The Salt Table that invite guests to “Please sample our products.”

“Almost everything in the store, you can sample,” says Dave, who then went on to praise the Loaded Baked Potato Dip as a topping for twice-baked potatoes. The various dips available, including the Spinach Sensation Dip, can also be used to submerge potato chips in, as a spread on crackers or salmon, or as part of a salad or salad dressing. And customers who buy the Raging River 5 Pepper Blend, which can be used on foods such as eggs, stews and soups, will be doing much more than adding new flavors to their meals. For each bottle of Raging River that is sold, $2 will be donated to the non-profit Rivers of the World. The organization bills itself as an international exploration and development agency that targets remote river basins. While discovering and sampling so many flavors at The Salt Table can be quite fun, it also makes one a little thirsty. No worries, though. The store also sells brewed iced teas and wine by the glass.

Local flavor

Several salts and seasonings found at The Salt Table are purchased by the chefs of some of Savannah’s finest restaurants, such as Belford’s and Alligator Soul. A local Popsicle salesman uses the store’s Habanero Sugar on some of his treats, and local confectioners come in to buy salt to decorate their candy. Visitors to The Salt Table will find coffee from Cup to Cup Coffee Roasters of Savannah, aprons and wine-bottle bags from a local seamstress, clay salt shakers and other clay objects from a local potter, and tupelo and wildflower honey from a Savannah beekeeper. While glancing around the store owned by him and his future wife, Dave gave what could be viewed as a summary of everything The Salt Table has to offer:“There are just all of these cool, creative ways to use this stuff.” The Salt Table is located at 51 Barnard St., between Broughton Street and City Market.

ull Bowls, Inc. is simply put, the hearts and minds of J.C. and Tracy Wilson.

Just a few months ago, I happened to see a recommendation for an organization called Halo Café in Fresno, California on Facebook one evening. Their mission is to assist low-income families and individuals with feeding their animal companions and that resonated with me. In sharing this information with J.C. it became clear to both of us that this need was prevalent in our community too. I reached out to the wonderful folks at Halo Café and they were only too happy to offer advice and encouragement and the concept of Full Bowls had begun to take shape in our hearts.

At Full Bowls, we assist individuals who may be suffering economic distress and hardship, and local rescue organizations (who are ALWAYS in economic distress) by providing mealtime assistance to companion animals. We have discovered in talking with literally hundreds of people over a very short time that the Low Country is in need of this assistance desperatelymore so than we thought originally. It is our intent, through outreach and action, to shoulder some of their burden and see that everyone in the family has a Full Bowl. No pet should go to bed hungry. After some thought, we took the advice and information we gathered through our contacts and began the slightly daunting task of forming a corporation. If you have never done anything like this- let me just say the idea of doing it ourselves (on paper) was a bit overwhelming. Under the expert advice of Halo Café, we contacted Legal Zoom to begin our process. One step at a time,Full Bowls was quickly transforming from just a thought into a real organization.

any of the staple foods and beverages that we enjoy today have been around since before history. Most of the time, we have no way to trace their origins or how they traveled around the globe to become the everyday luxuries that they are. Coffee however, is relatively new, making its debut to the world at large around the 16th century. That being the case, we have the joy of being able to trace coffee from its infancy to childhood to the moody adolescent that it is today.

Goats on Parade Have you heard the story of Kaldi and his dancing goats? It’s a fantastic tale that’s wonderful in its ridiculousness, which is why we all love it so much. Here’s how it goes; Kaldi the Ethiopian goat herder was out in the fields minding his own business when he noticed something strange; when his goats ate the fruit of a specific bush they became lively and danced around. Kaldi gathered up some of the fruit and brought it to the local priests who promptly declared it evil and threw the berries into the fire. The berries burned and brought forth such a wonderful aroma that the declaration of evil was rescinded and the joy of roasted coffee was introduced to the world. Right? About the only thing about that story that is verifiable is that Kaldi was Ethiopian. How do we know that? Coffee originated from Ethiopia. That’s right, every coffee bush and bean’s heritage can be traced back to the country of Ethiopia. So it’s in Ethiopia that coffee started its amazing and sometimes circuitous journey around the world. From its home country, coffee made its way to the Arabian Peninsula, specifically Yemen, or was it already there? 68

Well FED

Details can be a bit sketchy due to some people possibly trying to take undeserved credit for its discovery, but coffee is recorded as being found and used in Yemen as early as the 6th century and we can certainly credit Yemen with making coffee a popular product. The Yemenis were protective of their tasty product so in order to prevent germination, had strict policies of boiling beans in water before transporting it from the port of al-Makkha (where we get the word Mocha). But you can only keep a good thing to yourselves for so long. One legend tells of a monk traveling to Mecca, the Islamic holy city, and bringing coffee plants back to India where they began cultivation. For coffee to really make its way around the world though, it needed a country that was a little more connected. Enter the Dutch.

Why We Should all Thank The Netherlands During the mid 17th century the Dutch were very interested in the prospects of coffee cultivation and trading and managed to collect specimens from Yemen to transport them to Holland. By the late 17th century coffee plants were brought from the botanical gardens of the Netherlands to an island of Indonesia, which at that time was occupied by the Dutch, called Java. This is where we get the word java of course. From Java, coffee traveled to its surrounding neighbors in the East Indies where it became and is still today a major agricultural product of the region. Then along came the French.

Why We Should all Thank France Cuttings from Java made its way back to the botanical gardens of Amsterdam and were cultivated for further development. France, seeing how successful the Dutch were with introducing coffee to their colonies, wanted to give it a go for themselves.


‘Coffee Delight’ - A Turkish woman enjoys a cup of coffee in this painting that dates back to the first half of the 18th century. in the country of Papua New Guinea. The Spanish brought coffee to Costa Rica via Cuba, where it had been introduced to coffee from Santo Domingo. Brazil, the largest coffee producing country in the world can thank the Portuguese and an ambitious Belgian priest for its introduction to coffee. America’s contribution to the coffee world are the rare and expensive coffees found in Hawaii, which made their way there from Rio de Janeiro. After its introduction to Kenya, coffee then made its way into the interior of Africa. After several unsuccessful attempts to bring cuttings of plants to France, a full grown tree was brought to Louis XIV and placed in the Jardin de Plantes in Paris. In the early 18th century Captain Gabriel Matthieu de Clieu transported a single coffee plant, protected in a glass case and sharing Clieu’s water ration, to the island of Martinique in the Caribbean. To say that the coffee thrived there would be an understatement. By the end of the 18th century there were over 18 million coffee trees growing in Martinique. From there, coffee was introduced to Haiti, the Dominican Republic, and then crossed the Caribbean Sea southward to Venezuela.

There and Back Again Remember we mentioned circuitous routes? Coffee trees were introduced by the French to the island of Bourbon (now named Reunion Island) east of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean around the same time of Captain Clieu’s harrowing journey. The island was enormously successful in cultivation, and one of the most well known varietals of coffee is named after the island. In 1901 Bourbon coffee made its way to Kenya where it also flourished. So far in its historical journey, coffee has traveled and thrived from Ethiopia, and then from Yemen to the Netherlands, France, Bourbon, and on to Kenya (the country directly under Ethiopia). Quite a winding route!

A Global Effort By this time (the 20th Century) the whole world had a hand in the game. We can thank the English for bringing coffee to Jamaica via India. The Jamaican Blue Mountain varietal is the main coffee cultivar found

Where to Now? Coffee is always looking for new places to call home. Some forward thinking individuals are experimenting with coffee cultivation in the microclimates of California. Vietnam, the second largest producer of coffee (who knew?) is sharing the love with neighbors in Laos and China. While coffee grows the best in the altitudes just above and below the equator, there is some leeway, and countries previously depending on other crops like corn and wheat are considering coffee as a better investment. War ravaged countries like The Congo and Rwanda are finding healing and economic growth through coffee. Wherever it ends up in the future, I think it’s safe to say that coffee is officially here for the long-haul. And the next time you are enjoying your morning cup of joe you can think back to the long journey it took for that coffee to make it into your cup and be grateful.

We all know summer comes early in Savannah and the temperature has already hit 90 degrees a time or two. Recently, I have encountered many people that are tired of the same ole’ “Summer Varietals” like Pinot Grigio, Riesling or Sauvignon Blanc. Fortunately, for those of you that desire to expand your palate and be adventurous I have sought the help of a local professional for some advice. My good friend and wine expert Chris Zinaich (most people simply refer to him as “Z”) is the owner of a new restaurant, and former long time front man for Garibaldiʼs, as well as, The Olde Pink House. He has tried more wines than anyone that I know and, as in the past, he has offered his expertise on the subject of unique summer wines.

When I first asked Z about some lesser-known summer wines he went into a 15-minute rant about Kerner. It took me a minute to figure out that Kerner is the actual grape variety. He went on and on about Kerner this and Kerner that, I could barely keep up due to the fact that he had just drank a large coffee.

It has a floral, tropical aromas and flavors with hints of apple and grapefruit.”

Clearly, Kerner is the wine variety Z is the most excited about. It is a white aromatic grape variety that is surprisingly refreshing and complex.

It has a floral, tropical aroma with flavors hinting of apple and grapefruit. Compared to Riesling the grape is much more resilient, and can be grown in less favorable conditions. It has been widely planted in its native homeland of Germany, but Switzerland and Northern Italy have been planting Kerner for centuries. Abbazzia di Novacelli from Alto Adige is an Italian Kerner available at Sage Restaurant and perfectly compliments the spicy salty combination of mussels with chorizo. A more familiar, yet still not mainstream white wine variety is Grüner Veltliner. It is a perfect alternative to Pinot Grigio or Riesling, a great food wine, and one of the few varietals that actually compliments asparagus.


Depending on where it is grown, Grüner can range from light and simple and paired with fresh veggies to bold and rich served with meats and fish. Grüner Veltliner is the national grape of Austria, and is also grown in Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Höpler produces an outstanding Grüner Veltliner and is available for retail purchase at Form - 1801 Habersham Street. If you’ve never been to Form, it is the perfect place to get expert advice on cheese and wine, then grab a blanket and watch a movie in Forsyth Park. Our final white summer variety, Vermentino is a crisp, herbaceous wine of the Mediterranean. The Antinori Family has been producing Vermentino in Tuscany for 200 years, but its roots are in the islands of French Corsica and Italian Sardegna. There are some innovators in California playing with Vermentino vines. Vermentino is inexpensive, widely available, pairs great with food but rarely requested. So, ask your waiter or wine clerk, and they should be able to help you find a Vermentino. This French/Italian white will enhance the flavors of food and will perfectly compliment seared snapper or grouper. A refreshing, versatile and inexpensive summer wine is Domaine Houchart from Cote de Provence, France. This delicious rosé goes with just about everything, but specifically grilled salmon, turkey sandwiches, burgers or fried chicken. YES, fried chicken and wine can be a match made in heaven. , Domaine Houchart rosé is perfect for picnics or an outing on a boat, available retail at Habersham Warehouse and by the glass at Sage.

La Follette from Sonoma Coast shows subtle flavors of cherry candy, persimmons and spices with a bit of sweet, smoky oak.” If you are summer grilling, Maretima Nero de Avola from Sicily, Italy is the perfect choice. It is light bodied yet still has matured red and black fruits with some black pepper it is perfect with grilled salmon or hickory barbeque. Maretima is available retail only at Habersham Beverage Center and Warehouse. Pinot Noir is always a wonderful accompaniment to a warm summer evening. La Follette from Sonoma Coast shows subtle flavors of cherry candy, persimmons and spices with a bit of sweet, smoky oak. La Follette is available in Savannah for retail purchase at Form, as well as, by the glass on the rooftop of Local 11 Ten. The Perch at Local is a cozy intimate space that allows you to enjoy the night with your date and a glass of wine. If you are on Tybee Island La Follette is available at the Social Club. I recommend sitting at the newly extended bar and trying it with the Duck Taco. Everyone knows that Savannah has some hot summers, but not everyone knows about these enjoyable wines. So instead of buying a Pinot Grigio that is indistinguishable from any other or a Riesling that is sweeter than your grandma’s tea, venture into the unknown and try one our suggestions for a picnic in the park, a night out on the town, or a barbeque on the weekend. Oh yeah, each of these wines also pairs nicely with the aroma of bug spray and citronella. Happy summer sipping!!!
