I found on Aaron-n-Jen.com a three part video on indoor gardening. They found the videos at Garden Girl TV which is a pretty interesting site.
One solution to the issue of rising food prices and minimizing the environmental impact of agriculture is to grow your own food. I plan on trying to follow these indoor gardening experiments and see how it works out. Maybe I'll find somewhere to set one up at my place.
Also, I did some reading today about kale and making your own energy drinks with a juicer. Apparently kale has powerful antioxidant properties and is anti-inflammatory. It is also high in vitamins K, A, and C. I found a recipe for an energy drink in the Globe and Mail written by Chef David Lee who is co-owner and executive chef at Splendido in Toronto, Canada. I found the article online but I'm not sure if it will be a valid link for long as many newspaper sites lock content after a period of time. If it doesn't work I'll add the recipe in the comments section later. I plan on buying a juicer in the near future as I'm tired of buying 1 liter containers of Bolthouse Farms stuff. We really like their products but they are just a little pricey for the amount we drink. I figure a juicer will pay for itself in a year. I just have to find the right one.
I might be ambitious since it's the start of a new year with plans of an indoor garden and a home made energy drink. The drinks I can do but the indoor garden is a stretch due to space. I'll let you know how it works.
