EPA Chief's Refusal To Ban Brain-Damaging Pesticide Shows Profit Trumps Public Safety
WASHINGTON — Defying the recommendation of his own agency’s scientists, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has refused to ban a widely used pesticide that’s been linked to learning disabilities in children. Pruitt’s order, signed late Wednesday, allows chlorpyrifos, an organophosphate insecticide that’s been used on crops from broccoli to cranberries since the 1960s, to remain on the market for agricultural use. The EPA proposed in November 2015 under the Obama administration to permanently ban the chemical on food crops, citing potential risks to hu...

7 Brilliant Ways To Make Your Costco Runs Last And Last...And Last
As part of HuffPost’s “Reclaim” project, HuffPost Taste will focus the entire month of July on simple ways you can reduce food waste in your own home. In the sky-high aisles of Costco, where you can buy an engagement ring, an inflatable pool and a 3-pound bag of pre-peeled garlic cloves in one fell swoop, going overboard is not only inevitable, it almost seems encouraged. But in America, where up to 40 percent of food goes uneaten, it’s important to do our part as consumers to help reduce food waste. As part of HuffPost’s “Reclaim” project, we decided to explore ways to ...

Star-Shaped Berry Hand Pies
By: Amanda Frederickson These patriotic mini hand pies make a perfect July 4 dessert that both kids and adults will love. Pie is the quintessential summertime dessert. With 4th of July right around the corner, why not make your pie patriotic? These berry pie stars are made with flaky pie crust and a fresh summertime berry filling.

Either way, you'll find the result is a perfect July 4 dessert. Bonus, they are kid friendly and adults wil...

Is Buying Organic Really Worth It?
Buying organic food typically involves shelling out a premium. But is the extra pinch to the pocket actually worth it? Last week, a Department of Agriculture report revealed just how much it really costs to shop organic. Organic eggs, milk and salad greens can cost upwards of 60 percent more than conventional alternatives, while items like apples, carrots, granola and spinach carry premiums of between 7 and 30 percent, the study said. Producing organic food tends to be costlier along every part of the supply chain -- including farming practices that usually require greater labor inputs and segregating organic in...

Why Is Receiving So Hard
Recently, I decided to focus on receiving. Specifically, I'm aiming to let things that I want come to me instead of endlessly searching and struggling for a solution, or exhausting myself trying to "figure it out." To be clear, I don't believe that receiving is just about lying on my couch, snuggling with my cat, and waiting for everything I want to magically appear. (Although I have nothing against doing that sometimes!) For me, receiving involves a commitment to a kind of quiet observation. It's about tuning in to what I really want and also to the efforts I am making to have certain things or experiences. It'...

One Good Reason To Stop Mocking Gluten-Free Diets
Going gluten-free is an ever-so-mockable decision, despite the fact that an estimated 18 million Americans suffer from some kind of gluten sensitivity that results in embarrassing and painful symptoms like gas, bloating, constipation and urgent diarrhea. Unlike celiac disease, which is an autoimmune disorder that damages the small intestines if gluten is present, there’s no blood test to confirm gluten sensitivity -- which contributes to even more skepticism about the condition. Gluten-free diets undertaken by people without celiac disease have been called the “new, cool eating disorder” or, more serious...

Healthy eating can protect eyesight
When it comes to protecting your vision, what you eat may affect what you see, reports the August 2013 Harvard Health Letter. Vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients found in food play a role in preventing two common causes of vision problems: cataracts and age-related macular degeneration. Cataracts are cloudy areas in the lens of the eye, while macular degeneration is a deterioration of the macula, the part of the eye that controls central vision. "While there is no definite proof, some studies suggest that eating a diet rich in certain nutrients may help," says Dr. Ivana Kim, associate professor of ophthalmolo...
