Ancestor of Thanksgiving Food

Ancestor of 
Thanksgiving Food
by Adam Cole - NPR

Thousands of years of human breeding transformed wild species into the domesticated varieties we enjoy every year.
Most of these foods were originally found in the Americas.

The original domesticated carrots were purple. Carrots were bred to be orange by Dutch farmers in the 17th century, and then used as a political symbol of the ruling family - the House of Orange.
The ancestors of pumpkins were mainly eaten by mastodons and giant sloths - they were too bitter for smaller animals to stomach.

Turkeys were bred to have white plumage so their skin would be more uniform in color.

How To End
🍏 The Food Waste Fiasco 🍎
  Rob Greenfield
The amount of  food we waste every year is absurd.
Special thanks to TED.

There are millions around the world who don’t know where their next meal will come from. Rob is on a mission to solve this problem. We can all easily be a part of the solution… and it starts with a dumpster.

Rob is an adventurer, activist, and dude making a difference. His purpose is to inspire health, happiness, and freedom on Earth and he’s dedicated his life to this mission. He has cycled across the United States, twice, on a bamboo bicycle, went 1,000 days without showering, and has dove into thousands of dumpsters across America, all to inspire positive social and environmental change. When not out adventuring he lives off the grid in a fifty-square-foot tiny home in San Diego. His extreme adventures and activism campaigns may appear unattainable at first glance but within them are an abundance of simple lessons and tips that can be adapted into any life to live with more happiness, health, and freedom.

Food Waste
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver

Producers, sellers, and consumers waste tons of food. John Oliver discusses the shocking amount of food we don’t eat.

Food Waste: Breaking the habit
Fiona Jongejans

It may sound almost ridiculous, but that doesn’t make it less true. While 4.6 billion euros worth of food is thrown away in the Netherlands every year, 1.4 million people in our country live below the poverty line and cannot afford a sufficiently healthy diet. [Filmed at TEDxMaastricht]
Educated as industrial designer, Fiona Jongejans believes that design and creativity can play a bigger role in our society today. It can be a catalyst for social innovation and bring people and organizations together. This year, she decided to put her energy into one of the many challenges our society is currently facing. 
Fiona Jongejans has set herself the goal of bridging the gap between food waste and food poverty. She argues that we must shorten the distance between producer and consumer in order to give back value to our food and by doing so, to enhance the sustainability of our food chain. The real cure to the problem of food waste is to reconsider our behavior as consumers: by changing the way we buy, plan and cook our meals.
Together with three other young entrepreneurs, Fiona Jongejans has set up the SUR+ project, an online platform aiming to connect local food banks and fruit and vegetable farmers in a very simple and low threshold manner.

Today I Learned (TIL)
We Waste One-Third of Food Worldwide

When you were a kid, your mom probably made you stay at the dinner table until you finished your peas. Most of us eventually gave in, swallowing the evil little green bits like pills with milk. It was torture at the time, but mom had the right idea—and not just because peas are good for you.
