Baking biscuits and roasting chickens are great recipes to make when temperatures get colder.

People can make a big impact by eating more whole plant foods. Even though not everybody is willing to cut out meat, they can still make a big impact on their health and the planet by reducing their animal intake and by eating more whole plant foods.

That’s registered dietitian and author Sharon Palmer. Her new book The Plant-Powered Diet talks about any number of ways to reduce the amount of animal products in your diet. Today she answer your questions.

In the kitchen, Chef Daniel Orr depends on his oven for baking biscuits and roasting a chicken.

And, we visit a local orchard that makes apple cider on a press from the 1940s.
