what is clean eating?

The soul of clean eating is consuming food the way nature delivered it, or as close to it as possible. It is not a diet; it’s a lifestyle approach to food and its preparation.

q/ how can i speed up the ripening of_avocados?

_ CLARISSA WILDE, MANCHESTER, NH A/ Avocados are one of my favorite fruits in the world, although it wasn't until I was 21 that I really appreciated the delicate flavor and silky, creamy texture that a perfectly ripe avocado offers.

The presence of ripe fruit creates ethylene gas, which speeds up ripening. This method will take a day or two to do its job. You can also place the brown bag in an area with direct sunlight. The sun will heat up the ethylene gas, which ripens the fruit faster. _ JAMES SMITH We Hear You! Budding Chef Tonight, my daughter Sarah and I made the Smoked Salmon…
