With the multitude of green choices available, how can moms determine what will be best for their families—and the environment? Terra Wellington has the answers. This user-friendly and invaluable resource is packed with hundreds of easy green how-tos including: • Shopping: Get the most bang for your buck by purchasing organic foods that would otherwise have high pesticide residue, like apples, grapes, green peppers, peaches, and pears. • Kitchen: Save money and water by scraping—not rinsing— dishes before putting them in the dishwasher. Today's models are so efficient that rinsing is not necessary. • Home office: Screensavers don't save energy. Instead have the computer switch to sleep mode when idle.

Brian Kateman coined the term "Reducetarian"—a person who is deliberately reducing his or her consumption of meat—and a global movement was born. In this book, Kateman, the founder of the Reducetarian Foundation, presents more than 70 original essays from influential thinkers on how the simple act of cutting 10% or more of the meat from one's diet can transform the life of the reader, animals, and the planet. This book features contributions from such luminaries as Seth Godin, Joel Fuhrman, Victoria Moran, Jeffrey Sachs, Bill McKibben, Naomi Oreskes, Peter Singer, and others. With over 40 vegan, vegetarian, and "less meat" recipes from bestselling cookbook author Pat Crocker, as well as tons of practical tips for reducing the meat in your diet (for example, skip eating meat with dinner if you ate it with lunch; replace your favorite egg omelet with a tofu scramble; choose a veggie burrito instead of a beef burrito; declare a meatless day of the week), The Reducetarian Solution is a life—not to mention planet!—saving book.

For the legions of harried moms who have tossed in the dishtowel on cooking healthy meals (or any meals!), the easiest-ever guide for bringing super nutrition back to the kitchen. Getting dinner on the table night after night can be a challenge. So it’s no surprise that busy moms often rely on fast food, takeout, and convenience meals like macaroni & cheese, chicken nuggets, and fries. The kids love it but the drawback is that little twinge of guilt moms feel every time they feed their family another not-so-healthy meal. At the end of the day, many children end up with a poor diet high in sugar, saturated fat, and calories … a major factor in the rising rates of obesity. Finally, here are realistic guidelines designed to give families a healthy meal makeover. The Moms lay out a 5-Step Meal Makeover Plan, explaining how to market good nutrition to kids, establish food rules, and make life easier in the kitchen. In The Best of the Bunch chapter they reveal which brands of kid convenience foods–hot dogs, frozen pizza, and more–are the best tasting and most nutritious ones out there. The Moms show how to stock a healthy pantry and whip up delicious anytime meals using pantry staples. They even serve up 120 reworked recipes for family favorites such as Fast-as-Boxed Macaroni & Cheese, Squishy Squash Lasagna, Cheesy Broccoli Soup, Sweet Potato Fries, and Chocolate Pudding with Toppers. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Andrew Goldstein delved into the world of football at age five and, through a mistake that is equal parts painful and wonderful, somehow ended up rooting for the New York Jets. Thirteen years later, he decided to write a book about it. The uplifting, disheartening, wonderful, awful, hilarious, and generally crazy experiences in the middle? They’re all in the pages of this book. Growing Up Green is an attempt to shed a little bit of light on what it means to be a sports fan, and how the fan experience shapes us throughout our lives. This story will be told not through the lens of an expert, but from the perspective of a regular football fanatic who bleeds green and white. Along the way, you’ll either discover or re-discover the inner workings of a sports fan’s mind, and have a heck of a good time doing it. If you’re a diehard, a casual fan, have the slightest bit of curiosity in what it means to be a fan, or are Andrew Goldstein’s immediate friends and family, then this book is for you.

She says what she really needed, though, "was someone who would give me advice for living, not just grieving . . . How do I get through the grocery store without crying?

Is it okay to share details about my child's life on social media? What kinds of pictures should I avoid posting? Am I taking away my kids' ownership over their future online footprint?

From her years of research, Steinberg outlines what parents should and should not feel comfortable sharing, while providing suggestions and ideas for a wide range of approaches, including: How we can benefit from sharing, and how screens can connect us The dangers of oversharing How to model behavior online The difference in how parents and kids view online sharing The importance of educating kids about technology Engaging, approachable, and with concrete takeaways for today's parents, Growing Up Shared investigates the benefits and risks of sharing our kids' lives on social media, and will help any parent decide on the right path for their family to follow in the online world.
