A hilarious look at the eating habits of the fit and famous - from Gwyneth's goji berry and quail egg concoctions to Jackie Kennedy's baked potato and Beluga caviar regimen - Rebecca Harrington leaves no cabbage soup unstirred in her wickedly funny, wildly absurd quest to diet like the stars.
Everything's a superfood these days, isn't it? Broccoli, blueberries, dark chocolate, coconut oil… But, of course, you can't believe everything you read. Longevity-boosting claims make tasty clickbait, but how many of these stories are backed by solid evidence? Sadly, it's hard to tell; in our information-saturated age, it often feels like science knows more about the Higgs boson than about the health benefits of the goji berry. Food Unwrapped's Kate Quilton hopes to find some grains of truth (wholegrains, presumably), as she grills nutrition experts both conventional and complementary.
Imagine growing vegetables that require just about the same amount of care as perennial flowers and shrubs, need no annual tilling or planting, yet thrive and produce abundant and nutritious crops throughout the season. In this DVD a culmination of workshops recorded in Mexico, Florida, and Massachusetts plant specialist Eric Toensmeier introduces gardeners to more than 100 species of little-known, underappreciated plants. Ranging beyond the usual suspects (asparagus, rhubarb, and artichoke) to include such delights as ground cherry, ramps, air potatoes, the fragrant spring tree, and the much-sought-after, antioxidant-rich wolfberry (also known as the goji berry), Toensmeier explains how to raise, tend, harvest, and cook with plants that yield great crops and culinary satisfaction. Toensmeier also takes viewers on a plant-by-plant tour of his garden in Massachusetts.
