Food Day at Daffin Park

Looking at Daffin Park today, one would never suspect the deluge of people, pets and produce that is imminently headed its way. With this year’s goal of over 10,000 people in attendance, this may very well be one of the biggest events the park has ever seen. I actually live only two blocks from the park and still, as I pass it on a daily basis, it is hard for me to visualize exactly what that wide open field will look like when its filled with several thousand people. Oh, I’ve done the mapping and measuring, creating a perfect to scale diagram of exactly where the stage will be and how many tents will be in each row. I’ve probably spent more time in Daffin Park over the past few weeks than I have the entire time I have lived in Savannah. I can tell you exactly how many power outlets there are and how many feet it is from sidewalk to center drive. I know where the field dips and where the shade is at ten, twelve, and two o’clock. But the one detail that fails me, even after putting together the entire festival guide, is what it will look like when it is filled to the brim with children and pets and parents students and farmers - musicians and artists. We’ve seen it time and again in Forsyth Park: The east lawn in front of the ampitheatre filled with a sea of blankets and tents. But I never understood why Daffin has always been left out like a geeky cousin, never invited to the party. To me, it makes perfect sense to stage a festival in Daffin instead of Forsyth. It has better parking, bigger fields and a more central location (I am the first to admit that as a “downtowner”, I forget that most Savannahians do not live and work north of Victory.) So, it was with great anticipation that we decided to have this year’s festival in my own neighborhood. I invite all of Savannah and the surrounding area to join me in realizing this vision. Lets create an event that will change the way we view this wonderful park. We are so blessed to have such great parks in this city, so it is time we put them to the fullest use. I hope that come November, when you see a jogger on the trail or someone walking their dog on the lawn, you can be sure that they, along with myself, have no problem whatsoever envisioning what 10,000 people in Daffin looks like.

Will you be part of the 10,000?

An Intelligent Design: Design for Ability

Exceptional Gardening The Savannah High School Greenhouse Program


Design for Ability is a new educational organization that offers youth with exceptional needs an apprenticeship experience and hands-on training within green sectors of the agriculture, construction, and artisan industries. Program Director, and SCAD Design for Sustainability alumna, Meagan Hodge, believes in pursuing job-based learning techniques that give students the opportunity to earn a monetary stipend for their project involvement. She has identified for-profit and non-profit businesses to partner with that donate time, design knowledge, materials and labor to assist program participants during classes. The previous participating companies, Wooden Sheep, Southern Pine and RK Construction, have enabled these students to expand their job and life-skill training by acting as program mentors. One of the program benefits is that students and local community are involved in growing food and developing healthier eating habits together. By the end, the student participants will be able to design and build multiple above-ground beds, incorporate experimental soil techniques and start on-site composting. These added facilities will encourage individuals from the community to visit and teach, not only the students, but also the surrounding neighborhood about gardening, nutrition and sustainable building systems while exploring new job training tactics. Hodge also plans to open the site to other schools and organizations for tours and workshops, with the hope that they will take this model and reproduce it in their neighborhoods. Design for Ability’s newest project, is the construction of an on-site greenhouse with materials completely derived from the construction waste stream. This structure will serve as an excellent example of material reuse, and show the value of utilizing the amazing supply of historic building materials available in the greater Savannah area. Through this project, the students will be involved in every step of the building process, from salvaging the material, de-nailing lumber, material inventory, site preparation and construction of the greenhouse. The design, which is derived from Meagan Hodge’s final Masters project will provide another learning opportunity, as it will showcase progressive building systems such as passive cooling and heating, photovoltaic energy production and rain-water harvesting.

he Savannah High School Greenhouse Program is a growing initiative that started within the Chatham County Public Schools system. The program, first developed four years ago by Transition Specialist Margo Greene and Job Coach Willie Mobley, began as series of gardening projects for those within the Department of Exceptional Students. The curriculum at Savannah High School is an enhanced one for these students, and provides exposure to agriculture classes in unconventional class formations. It is during these classes that students learn simple farming techniques with produce and plant life production throughout their school year. Currently, the class has access to a 200-square foot greenhouse and inground planting on the school’s premises and with continued growth, more space will be needed. The local business community has demonstrated its commitment to the gardeners of tomorrow with their active involvement. Previous sponsors Oelschig’s Nursery, Bamboo Gardens & Coastal Gardens and Harambee House Farms, graciously contributed agricultural expertise to the program. These companies have also opened their doors to students for additional hands-on training in professional gardening environments. But the work has only begun. Mobley hopes to expand the Greenhouse Program within a new urban context for additional exposure, community involvement, new training opportunities and additional participation with multiple education programs. To take the initiative to that next level, the school selected Design for Ability, a novel apprenticeship program, to become Continued on Next Page the new platform to expand its vocational training.

How, you might ask, are they getting all of this done? Once again, partnering with local companies for the greater good of the community.

Using What’s Already There with Emergent Structures Emergent Structures is another local non-profit, with a mission to increase the value and accessibility of building material waste streams through facilitation, collaboration, education, and advocacy. The non-profit identifies valuable construction waste, and through open collaboration, they funnel it right back into community projects that might be looking for lumber, windows, doors, etc. They are major “bottom feeders,” and proud of it. When the Savannah High School program needed a larger greenhouse and location for Design for Ability’s design-build classroom concept, Emergent Structure saw an opportunity. They have taken the reins on organizing the new location, fundraising efforts, material reclamation efforts, and mobilizing the resources of their experienced board and external partners. One such partner is the Savannah Technical College, whose Historic Preservation and Restoration Technology academic program is led by Director/ Instructor Steve Hartley, an Emergent Structures’ board member. Two of his classes are assisting with material restoration, green building design and installation of the greenhouse. The Historic Preservation Class 1280: Doors, Windows and Roofing, is restoring all salvaged windows with accurate lead paint removal, re-glazing glass panes and re-painting all windows. The Introduction to Green Building Class 1001 has already deconstructed a local residential home, saving valuable yellow pine and red cedar shiplap for the new greenhouse’s construction. They will also be helping create the final structural designs, with an emphasis on maximizing solar gain, rain water collection and the use of efficient building systems. Additionally, two local for-profit companies, Southern Pine Company of Georgia and RK Construction, will be donating materials and hardware, on-site labor and design advice to the greenhouse project. The founder of both companies, Ramsey Khalidi, has been partnering with Design for Ability over the last year and educating the students on the proper deconstruction techniques needed to maximize material reclamation. This project is truly a cross-collaboration, a union of Savannah’s diverse building industry, its educational sector, and its talented practitioners giving back to the community and they are not stopping until they get things done!

“Many things grow in the garden that were never sown there.” - Thomas Fuller, Gnomologia, 1732

Want to get your hand dirty too? Over the next few months, Emergent Structures and Design for Ability will be organizing several volunteer opportunities and fundraising events, with initial sponsorship from the IKEA distribution center in Port Wentworth and Hardin Construction. So stay tuned for postings of participation opportunities!

The Result: A New Greenhouse Effect The ultimate goal is to have different members of the community visit the Design for Ability’s site and teach students, individuals and neighbors about gardening, nutritional cooking techniques, sustainable building systems and effective job training skills. They hope to open the site to other schools and organizations for tours as a model for what could be done in other local communities.

e are pleased to welcome to the 2012 Savannah Food Day Festival author, gardener, and seed saver Janisse Ray. Ray has written five books of literary nonfiction, including her latest, The Seed Underground: A Growing Revolution to Save Food.The books sounds an alarm bell over what’s happening to seeds – the genetic erosion of food crops and the loss of agrodiversity. “My saying this may seem crazy when you think about the bounty…at the supermarket, but we are, in fact, losing food,” Ray writes. “Thousands of distinct varieties worldwide, especially ancient breeds, are threatened…or dying out, the seeds for them no longer found.” Ray has recently been interviewed on NPR’s “Marketplace” and “Living on Earth.” Before tackling the subject of American agriculture and the loss of heirloom food, Ray was best known for the acclaimed Ecology of a Cracker Childhood, a memoir about growing up on a junkyard in the endangered longleaf pine ecosystem of the Southeast. She holds an MFA from the University of Montana and in 2007 was awarded an honorary doctorate from Unity College in Maine. Ray lives in the coastal plains of southern Georgia, in the ghost village of Altamaha, Georgia, where she farms, studies nature, teaches, and writes.

The Seed Underground by Janisse Ray

an excerpt If you haven’t heard what’s happening with seeds, let me tell you. They’re disappearing, about like every thing else. You know the story already, you know it better than I do, the forests and the songbirds, the Appalachian Mountains, the fish in the ocean. But I’m not going to talk about anything that’s going to make us feel hopeless, or despairing, because there’s no despair in a seed. There’s only life, waiting for the right conditions—sun and water, warmth and soil—to be set free. Every day millions upon millions of seeds lift their two green wings. I’ve waited for those same conditions, and now I’ve found them. I believe that you will too. We are in the springtime, in the garden, winging into a new era, the Ecozoic era, and you and I have just alighted. Welcome. All my life I dreamed of being a farmer. My mother had been glad to leave the farm, where I spent many Saturdays with my grandparents Arthur and Beulah. Deep in my psyche are my grandfather’s mules, my grandmother’s chickens, fields of vegetables and sprawling watermelon vines, full corncribs. During my preschool years, my grandmother milked a cow.

“ To not fail, we have to understand everything we can about the cycle of life.” Then there was the Farmall - A tractor and bird guano fertilizer, and after my grandfather died, when I was six, subsidized tobacco and Roundup weedkiller, monster combines and terrible erosion and the invasion of privet .

And, poof, all that was gone, brushed aside casually. It happened so quickly. It left me doodling pitchforks in college astronomy and world civ notebooks.

The cane grinder was sold, the smokehouses fell, the last hen wasn’t even eaten. Grandmama sent the milch cow to the livestock auction. I remember her final pea-patch.

Now I’m back. Our farm has forty-six acres in pasture, field, and woods. It has a house built in 1850 by a man whose brother operated a sawmill on Slaughter Creek, which collects water off the fields of Reidsville, Georgia’s prison farm, and delivers it to the Altamaha River.

On that farm -- where I as a child roamed, eating crabapples and muscadines, pomegranates and sand pears -- now the story is Roundup-resistant pigweed among rows of genetically modified (GM) soybeans in fields leased to chemical cultivators. The fencerows are bulldozed, demolishing the plantings of wax myrtle and wild cherry accomplished by mockingbirds and cardinals. Fences are yanked out and the farmers are crowding right up to the road, since the field has to get bigger at all costs. The sassafras tree my grandfather so carefully skirted with his harrows is dead and gone. Any one of us middle-aged Americans could be the poster child for the story of agriculture in the United States, one that began with working farms; farm animals; seed saving; land-based, subsistence economies; farming children.

Continued on Next Page

Our gardens are gridworks of ragged raised beds. The gardens are fenced to keep the barnyard fowl— including the crazy guineas, which scuttle around like boats on legs hollering their mad, prehistoric calls— from scratching up every seed we plant. We have a pig or two, a few goats and sheep, some chickens, some turkeys and ducks. Many people still alive today have seen the entire process of American ag: the function, the falling apart, the rise of big chemical, and now the coming back. We are witnessing in agriculture a revolution, a full circle. Except it’s not a circle. We are not returning to where we were. With some of the old knowledge intact and armed with fresh knowledge, we are looping forward to a new place. And we’re coming there different. We are coming better prepared. We’re coming educated. Girls as well as boys are coming. We’re coming as greenhorns, but we’re coming together. We’re coming knowing that failure is not possible. To not fail, we have to understand everything we can about the cycle of life. We can no longer believe in false magic, that whatever we hanker for will be available to us, as it has been for most of our lives, whenever we wanted it, that it will appear in stores and restaurants as long as we have money wadded in our pockets.

The time has come to understand food at its most elemental.

At no time in our history more than now have Americans been more knowledgeable and more concerned about what we eat. We have watched our food systems deconstructed in front of our eyes. In a way, the farmer in all of us has roused. We understand organic, that food grown without chemicals is healthier for us and the earth. We understand local, that food grown closer to home is healthier and helps solve the climate crisis as well. Now we come to the landscape of American agriculture with a fresh realization: We do not have control of seeds, which are the crux of our food supply. Our seed supply is in crisis and therefore our food is in crisis. A tragedy of corporate robbery is being acted out on a world stage, except this is not a drama with us in the audience getting to go home afterward. This is real. The time has come to understand food at its most elemental.

ngus McLeod sits atop an eight-foot picnic table, the type that you might find in droves at a family reunion or a backyard barbeque. The makeshift wooden bench is the perfect home for McLeod, an engaging man with a friendly, straightshooting manner. As one of the founders of the Richmond Hill Farmers’ Market, he’s here every Tuesday surveying the scene, checking in with vendors, sampling the odd piece of cheese or sweet treat, and saying hello to old and new friends. Today is no different. The gentle din of merchants talking with customers fills the air. In the distance, the playful pitterpatter of children shouting and playing abounds. A more quite little one tugs at mom’s shorts while she picks out the produce for this week’s meals. An eager group of Cub Scouts amble toward McLeod, their faces as bright as their starched blue-and-yellow uniforms. He asks them how their fundraising efforts are doing, listens intently, and offers them a few tips before they head on their way. A few minutes later, a pair of young anglers walk by, showing off today’s catch, a catfish, caught from the pond that runs down one of the sides of the park. “Worms,” the two boys beam in unison. “Worms.” The market is as ripe with fruit and vegetables as it is nostalgia, a perfect scene of bucolic Americana that’d make even Norman Rockwell grab his brush. “I grew up in the 40s and 50s, and we fed ourselves out of a garden, “ says McLeod, a local realtor who moved to the Savannah area in 1974. “You can’t believe the number of customers that tell the

vendors that their granddaddy had a garden, or that their uncle had a garden, and they grew up with a garden.” The market, which goes from July to the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, is a pleasant weekly reminder of perhaps a simpler time when farmers and families met at the local marketplace. A time when working the land, on the farmer and in the garden, was the primary source of sustenance. The story behind the market traces its seeds back to an impromptu 2010, when five friends decided to share a two-acre garden in the Harris Neck Wildlife Refuge. Over cups of coffee at a local eatery, the impromptu group -- a biologist, a contractor, mortgage banker, the landowner, annd McLeod, a realtor -- wondered to themselves if such an endeavor might work on a greater stage. “I remember we’d comment on the fact that it’d be nice if everybody had access to the fresh vegetables that we had in the garden,” McLeod recalls. “Could [a farmers’ market] work in Richmond Hill?” So they did just that, meeting with city officials, scouting potential vendors, and visiting other nearby markets in Georgia and South Carolina to get a sense of what worked. In spring 2011, they received approval from the Richmond Hill City Council, and a few months later in July, they held their first Tuesday market. The response, so far, has been tremendous. McLeod says the weekly event averages between 700 and 800 vehicles entering the park each week. Continued on Next Page

There are usually between 32 and 35 vendors at each Tuesday market, including a few local nonprofits, specialty book vendors, and craftsman and women selling hand crafted goods such as soaps and wooden children’s toys. Regular participants include, but are certainly not limited to, the following: Hunter Cattle, Southern Swiss Dairy, Fra Li Gourmet (pasta and sauces), Flatland Farm, Georgia Buffalo, Bayfront Treasures (soaps and scents), Brown’s BBQ, among others. With McLeod playing host, Well Fed Savannah spoke with a few of the day’s vendors...

The Sweet and Savory Life: Lowcountry Comfort Bakery “Everything I do is all natural, and it’s kinda quirky,” says Chef Tara Noberini, who grew up in New York, and has lived in San Francisco. “So I have spins on things, I make chocolate chip cookies, but I put a spin on it. I do a potato chip chocolate chip, and a bacon chocolate chip that people go nuts for.” She’s been a vendor at Richmond Hill since last year, and has thoroughly enjoyed it. “For me, not really knowing where Richmond Hill is, it’s been an adventure for me,” she says. “I love the people that I meet. It’s fascinating to get to know them, and learn their history.”

From Farm to Table: Yahveh Farms Paul & Alyssa Kearns are the husband-and-wife tandem behind Yahveh Farms, a local farm in northern Jasper County where they cultivate naturally-grown, chemical free produce. “The thing we’ve noticed here is that people in Richmond Hill really depend on the farmers’ market for their everyday vegetables,” said Alyssa Kearns, who grew up in Oswego, NY before moving to South Carolina to raise her family. “At a lot of the farmers’ markets, people will buy novelty items, and they just walk around, but at this one people really depend on it for their produce. They don’t [always] go to Kroger for their produce, and they come here, rain or shine” Their typical farmers’ market bounty includes carrots, eggplant, okra, squash, watermelon, beans, cantaloupe, broccoli, lettuce, collards and gourds. But they also try to introduce customers to more adventurous items, like purple potatoes and rainbow swiss chard.

photo by Patti Todd The Richmond Hill Farmer’s Market is located at 520 Cedar Street in a covered pavillion at the J.F. Gregory Park. The market is open every Tuesday from July to late November from 3 to 7 p.m., For more information, please visit the Market’s Facebook page or contact them directly at 912-572-5888.

“We try to grow unique different items, things people haven’t really seen, stuff that people aren’t used to,” says Kearns, a mother and wife. “We’re trying to open people up to the wonderful world of vegetables.”

A Honey Pot: Richmond Hill Bee Company For those with a sweet tooth, there’s the Richmond Hill Bee Company, which makes popular Tupelo and wildflower honeys. “I remember working with bees back when I was young with Daddy,” says J.M. Sikes, who has 900 hives spread across four local counties. “Finding a place to get good honey is hard to find.” “It’s been a good season. Right now, I have a 205-lb bucket,” says Sikes, who also vends at a market in Hinesville and at the Keller’s Flea Market in Savannah. “Just like any big bee company, we’ve got everything we need. Nobody don’t do none of our honey but us.” As the afternoon turns into evening and day into night, customers head out, and new ones head in, collecting what they need for the week ahead. “We only bought staples [at the grocery store] in the 40s and 50s. We bought soap, salt and pepper and sugar, we’d buy coffee,” McLeod remembers. “But we made our own bread, made our own ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, and we’d literally eat out of a two-acre garden, plus a farm.” So goes the old-fashioned afternoon farmers’ market, a gentle reminder of the way things used to be and, perhaps, should be. And then, Tuesday’s gone.

• tapping the exterior • putting one’s ear to the body of the fruit

Did You Know? Ripeness is big business. There are companies like Wagner Instruments in Greenwich, CT that manufacture the FT Fruit Tester, a penetrometer that measure’s an object’s firmness. Most of the fruit we buy, at the grocery store anyway, has left the garden far behind, having been picked before its prime to avoid shipping damage and storage loss. So, accurately judging the ready-to-eat fruit from the dregs becomes even more important. related words: pret-a-manger adj., a piece of fruit that is ready to eat, perfectly ripe, like the French phrase pret-a-porter, meaning “ready to wear”.

5 MILLION Celebration


o celebrate the National School Lunch Program, during the week of October 15 – 19, lunchrooms across Chatham County will hold week long events, activities and contests. This school lunch fest is designed to celebrate the over 5 million nutritious lunch meals the Chatham County School Nutrition Program served to students last year and the over 6,000 lunch meals served thus far this school year. This averages to around 22 thousand lunches per day. This lunch time celebration was officially named the National School Lunch Week Campaign in 1962 by President John K. Kennedy; in a positive effort to celebrate the benefits of providing low-cost nutritious meals to the nation’s children during the school day. In a effort to show the parents how the Healthy, HungryFree Kids Act of 2010 new dietary guidelines for school lunches translated into real life meals, we would like to invite the parents and the community to come and celebrate with us. This year’s theme is “School Lunch: What’s Cooking?”, which was designed to give the local School Nutrition Program the opportunity to highlight the dietary benefits of eating school lunch. It is also intended to get the conversation going between the parents, the community, and the School Nutrition Program to discuss the main meal of the day in the school food environment.

Food Day is a nationwide celebration and a movement toward more healthy, affordable, and sustainable food. Food Day, created by CSPI, is powered by a diverse coalition of food movement leaders, organizations, and people from all walks of life. Food Day takes place annually on October 24 to address issues as varied as health and nutrition, hunger, agricultural policy, animal welfare, and farm worker justice. The ultimate goal of Food Day is to strengthen and unify the food movement in order to improve our nation’s food policies.

On Sunday, October 28th, the Sunday after the National Food Day, the City of Savannah will be treated to a large outdoor festival at Daffin Park, located next to Historic Grayson Stadium on Victory Drive. The festival is from 11am to 6pm and is free and open to the public. A live concert, featuring many of Savannah’s top performers will take place during the festival. We encourage the public to bring their own canopy tents, seating or blankets and spend the day taking in the music, browsing the nearly 100 exhibitors and vendors and shopping at the Farmer’s Market. Attendees are also sure to find interest among the two dozen unique and completely free workshops and cooking classes, suitable for everyone, including the kids! Of course, it wouldn’t be a food festival without the food! This year the festival welcomes the following food vendors - all serving fresh, delicious offerings all day: Thrive, A Carry-out Cafe / Crepe’ A Diem / Cafe Gelatohhh! / Five Spot / Alligator Soul This year, The Savannah Food Day Festival will also be recognizing National Pitbull Awareness Day. Feel free to share the day with your canine companions and visit with several animal organizations including the Savannah Kennel Club, The Humane Society of Greater Savannah and Solace PitBull Rescue.

The SkyeLite Jazz Band is the premier performing group at Savannah Arts Academy, andhas been a staple for Savannah’s Jazz scene for 20 years. Performing music for Big band, the band prides itself on playing standard repertoire, as well as more updated arrangements for jazz band. The “JE One,” as it is called at Savannah Arts High School, is a class which promotes and teaches creativity, improvisational skills, and entertainment value, and is part of the “American Music Project” created by director, Vann Thornton. Featuring singers, and soloists, the band plays hot, cool, be-bop, and funk, and everything in between. The Accomplices, a lowcountry string band from Savannah, is a unique sort of rock and groove-based blues-grass with overtones of jazz and bohemian country.With acoustic/effected guitars, upright bass, percussion, Dobro or lap steel, and fiddle, their playing is one crossgenre blend of musical style and influence that will engage every type of listener. The band’s vocal harmonies and its clever lyrical prose only further embellish the strong musical foundation of this diverse group. The people said they needed a break from the sameness. There was no creativity. They had given up hope and fallen out of love with HipHop. Then, along came KidSyc@Brandywine. Take the thoughts, ideas, and emotions of your average misfit, sprinkle in some newfound confidence, and spread it all across a bold and adventurous soundtrack. What you will have is a KidSyc@BrandyWine song...... and a new favorite band. Savannah, Ga.’s own local-boys-done-good, The Train Wrecks offer up raucous and rollicking Americana that’s as equally indebted to the traditionalist legacies of Hank Sr. and Johnny Cash as it is to the forward thinking rock & roll of Hank III and Lucero. Local reviewers have been “blown away” by the band’s live shows, and the Wrecks have been officially dubbed “The Hardest Gigging Band in Savannah”, a testament to the love and dedication they have for their music. “A shining light of Savannah’s music scene for a decade, Bottles & Cans is known as a “blues band,” yet this unpredictable group of immensely talented players and singers draws as well on the rich traditions of American folk, country and rock to create their raucous, swampy rave-ups and soulful ballads.” “Word of Mouth is an 8-piece musical ensemble comprised of diverse artists from across the United States. Meeting in and based out of Savannah, GA, the group has existed since 2009 and is currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album, “Word of Mouth Speaks”. Word of Mouth’s music is just as eclectic as the members themselves, with influence holding it’s musical roots in rock and h ip-hop, while delving all the way to the intricacies of classical piano and poetic decisiveness of spoken word. This band will keep you guessing with its dramatic time changes and unique genre-blending, all the while keeping your head bobbin’ and feet groovin’.

The 2012 Savannah Food Day Festival is proud to welcome the Forsyth Farmer’s Market this year! Usually held on Saturdays at Forsyth Park from 9am to 1pm, the market will be transplanted to the festival for one special second day. That Sunday of the festival, attendees will be able to partake in the abundance of Savannah’s most popular farmer’s market - in the convenience of Daffin Park! Never has it been a better time, with ample parking and lovely fall weather, to see what the Forsyth Farmer’s Market has to offer. Don’t forget to come early to get the best selections!

hat a happy and welcome transition into Autumn as the late summer fades away! The cooks here at the Brighter Day deli are dedicated to preparing organic and local foods that inspire and delight the senses, while nourishing and harmonizing the body. Soup is a popular dish year round but one of the customer favorites is our special ‘Greens and Garlic Soup’. We’ve created a couple of variations of this soup so there is a version for all palates. I personally prefer this version, as we can incorporate those delicious, snappy hot peppers that are plentiful at the Forsyth Farmers’ Market right now.


Well FED


Also at the Farmers’ Market, the cooler weather greens such as kales, collards, chard will begin making their appearance, peaking as the weather gets colder. It is quite apparent here at the deli that people love their greens! After summer’s excess of all things colorful, we are delighted to see the kales, curly and lacinato, collards, dandelion, chard and mustard greens begin popping up in all their various shades of green. High in vitamins and minerals, greens can be eaten raw in salads, roasted, lightly steamed or simply wilted as they are in this soup...And don’t forget the powerful, lowly garlic--viruses beware! It is a perfect food for this prone-to-colds time of year.

From the Farmers’ Market A combination of greens.

Choose a couple of bunches such as Kale, Napa cabbage, collards, escarole. Remove spines with a sharp knife, wash, dry, and cut into strips.

1 1/2 lb. russet potatoes

(about 2-3 medium potatoes) Peel and dice. Potato gives body to the soup, but if you like, you can skip it and have more of a broth, adding cooked rice, cous cous, or orzo into the bowls at serving time.

2-3 small hot peppers

As per your heat tolerance. Slice thinly or chop. I generally use the whole pepper, meaning I don’t remove the seeds to keep more heat goodness. Remember to use caution when handling hot peppers as the hot pepper oil is on the skin can cause burning. Use gloves or be sure to wash hands thoroughly after handling.

What else? 1 head of garlic

Separate into cloves & peel

Marilyn at the Brighter Day Deli counter

Putting it together...

1. In a food processor or a blender put olive oil 2 Tbsp good olive oil and garlic cloves, process until smooth. You could 8 cups vegetable broth also crush the garlic and whisk with the olive oil. (we like the Seitenbacher brand, it’s gluten free)

3/4 cup white wine

2. Transfer to a large pot with heat on medium..

Cook, stirring often. Garlic should be softened and slightly browned (approx. 3 mins)

3. Add vegetable stock & bring to boil then add 3 Tbsp rice vinegar potatoes. Turn heat to medium low & simmer until potatoes tender (15 mins).

4. Add the wine, rice vinegar & hot peppers. Simmer for 20 minutes.

5. Remove from heat. Add the cut up greens. Cover with a lid and let the greens wilt..

Six days a week, Marilyn and the deli crew create a tasty array of freshly made organic sandwiches, salads, juices, smoothies and much more. Vegan and Gluten-free options available. Try it for yourself at Brighter Day Natural Foods Market, Monday thru Saturday, 11am-4pm. Located at 1102 Bull Street in downtown Savannah.

6. Taste. adjust seasonings. Add salt if desired. If not hot enough, add some cayenne powder. 7. Ladle into bowls. Drizzle with olive oil and add crumbles of feta cheese if you like. Sit down with a whole grain hunk of bread and a salad, its a meal! Well FED

Bar Guide

Liquid Candy by Elizabeth Conlon


we all love it in some form or fashion and most of us even crave it! Our body uses sugar, a carbohydrate, to make energy and the truth is we need it. In fact, our bodies are designed to use sugar for fuel. But we live in America, in the 21st century, and herein lies the problem. Thousands of years ago when we lived in caves and had to hunt and gather everything needed to survive, sugar was rare. The natural craving our bodies experienced for sugar helped us find fruit, berries and vegetables, all of which are high in fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients. The naturally occurring sugar in fruits and vegetables is essential, beneficial and good for us. Now fast forward to today where the modern food industry , with all its business brilliance, has exploited our natural desire for sugar in order to sell us products we don’t need. Back in the day, our ancestors only had access to relatively small amounts of naturally occurring sugar unlike today where we have easy access to large amounts of processed sugar and still retain the natural desire to seek out sweet foods. Processed sugars are found in almost all prepared and packaged food we buy; inexpensive, addictive and because we are consuming them in such large quantities, they are wreaking havoc on our health. America’s increased consumption of processed sugars is not only contributing to the obesity epidemic, the dramatic rise in diabetes, increase in risk factors for heart disease but contributes to other undesirable side effects such as increased risk of acne, yeast infections, depression, cancer and a variety of other chronic diseases. Too much sugar suppresses the immune system which simply makes it harder for our natural defenses to fight off all disease even the common cold and flu virus. This might explain why the week after Halloween is reportable the busiest week for pediatricians.

How much is too much?

Imagine getting a cup of coffee tomorrow morning at the coffee shop and the guy next to you puts three packets of sugar in his coffee. Is that too much? How about five packets? What about ten packets? Our perception is generally that ten packets of sugar are too much but the truth is the average American eats an equivalent of about 30 packets of processed sugar every day! That is more than 100 grams and three times the recommended maximum amount for a healthy lifestyle. Each ‘packet’ of sugar I have been referring to contains one teaspoon of sugar, which is equal to four grams.


Well FED

Chocolate Milk*

10.5 teaspoons of sugar

According to the American Heart Association women should consume no more than six packets (24 grams) a day and men no more than nine packets (36 grams) daily. As for children, Dr. Sears, pediatrician and author, recommends they should aim to have no more than six grams of processed sugar per meal, roughly 1 ½ packets. As Americans, a lot of us unintentionally consume a large portion of our daily sugar and calorie intake through our choice of flavored beverages. A 12 oz. can of Coke contains almost 10 packets of sugar and a 20 oz. bottle has more than 16 packets. It is common knowledge that soda contains a fair amount of sugar but what you may not realize is what other flavored beverages are loaded with sugar too. Starbucks Frappuccino’s © or even a glass of that wonderful southern classic, sweet iced tea, can have six to ten packets per 12 ounces making both just as sugary as a soft drink. Much to many parents’ surprise, even chocolate milk can be so laden with sugar it equals the sugar of that in a soda.

Most parents try to make good nutritional choices for their kids, but in this world of clever food marketing, deciding what is healthy and what is not can be tricky. For example, Stonyfield, an organic dairy producer, adds 12 grams of sugar to each 8 oz. carton of their organic flavored milk. Can you imagine adding four packets of sugar to a glass of milk, stirring it up and handing it to a child? This seemingly innocent childhood staple drink has more than twice the recommend sugars per meal for a child. So what about juice, you say? Most juice boxes, whether 100% fruit juice or not, contain the same amount of sugar & calories per ounce as soda. 100% juice contains only naturally occurring sugars but does not contain the fiber and nutrients of the whole fruits or veggies it came from. The naturally occurring sugar in 100% juice is still sugar and a large culprit of tooth decay, chronically sick and overweight young children. Sports performance drinks are also remarkably high in sugar. A single 32 oz. Gatorade can contain 14 packets of sugar. As much as the advertising tries to convince us that sports drinks are healthy and refreshing, they essentially fall into the same category as the rest of the over sugared beverages mentioned here. If you really think about it, most of these sugar laden beverages are merely liquid candy. We all love a little dessert every once in a while and a rare sweet tea or chocolate milk can be a fun treat. So why don’t we start thinking of these sugary drinks as desserts and just that; a rare treat to be consumed in moderation on special occasions; definitely not daily or in super size. If we want to decrease our sugar intake what else can we drink? Most people immediately think of turning to diet sodas and low calorie drinks but the problem here is that the artificial sweeteners used in these drinks are still linked to weight gain, heart disease, stroke, infertility and other health issues.

approximate number of tsp. of sugar per 12 oz.

Coca-Cola © Sweet Tea

Through all my research I have found one drink that truly is refreshing, cleanses toxins from the body, can relieve head and back aches, makes skin supple again and can cure constipation among other things. The really good news is it is cheap and easy to get. It’s WATER. The Harvard School of Public Health says that at least half your daily intake of fluids should be good old water and unlike sugary drinks, the more you drink the better.

* including naturally occuring sugars


Do not fret. It is not as hard as you think to find tasty, healthy alternatives. Instead of the store brand gallons of sweet tea, try homemade or unsweetened ice teas in which you can control the amount of sugar that is added. Tazo Wild Sweet Orange and herbal berry teas have such great fresh flavors that you might not even consider adding sugar. For that fizzy feeling you get from soda, take carbonated water and add a splash of your favorite 100% fruit juice. In the morning you can spice up a regular glass of water by adding a few lemon and lime slices or for a refreshing afternoon treat try floating a few cucumber slices and a sprig of mint in your water glass. You can Google “spa water” for lots of fun ideas; one is bound to fit your fancy.
