If you are what you eat... what are you? We all want food that’s healthy, yet tastes good, and food labels today can be confusing and misleading.
What difference does it make, for you and the environment, if your meat contains hormones or antibiotics? What are the "dirty dozen"? How do seasonal, local and organics figure into your food choices?
Explore options, cook, and sample a tasty, nutritious dish featuring an international super food!
Join Carole Ortenzo, retired Army surgeon turned certified personal chef who specializes in organic, health-supportive cooking.
Science and technology topics include:
Environment, Biology, Chemistry, and Health

MS-PS1-2. Analyze and interpret data on the properties of substances before and after the substances interact to determine if a chemical reaction has occurred.
MS-PS1-3. Gather and make sense of information to describe that synthetic materials come from natural resources and impact society.
MS-PS3-1. Construct and interpret graphical displays of data to describe the relationships of kinetic energy to the mass of an object and to the speed of an object.
MS-PS3-4. Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.
MS-LS2-1. Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an ecosystem.
HS-PS2-5. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that an electric current can produce a magnetic field and that a changing magnetic field can produce an electric current.
HS-PS3-4. Plan and conduct an investigation to provide evidence that the transfer of thermal energy when two components of different temperature are combined within a closed system results in a more uniform energy distribution among the components in the system (second law of thermodynamics).
