Students And Local Food Get Cozy, Caprese Salads, Chia Seeds

The students are back! Big Red Eats Green wants to introduce them to local options for their off-campus eating. And, chia seeds for breakfast and caprese salad.

If it means 20 students go to the farmers market 6 months earlier than they would have, I consider that a total success.

Sara Minard is a former organizer of Big Red Eats Green. Restaurants and small farms will be setting up shop at Indiana University next week to try to encourage students to get local with their off-campus eating.

Harvest Public Media reports on a doping scandal in the beef industry. Why Tyson Foods is concerned about the drugs being fed to cows.

And, chia seeds for breakfast, then a millet seed caprese salad, and then a vegan tofu caprese salad. Connecting the dots in the kitchen with Chef Daniel Orr.
