One piece of nutrition advice is essentially eternal: We really should be eating far more fresh fruits and vegetables and, ideally, less meat.
"Some of the advantages of reducing meat [consumption] are to focus on the other food categories on our plate," says Korrin Fotheringham, a registered dietitian nutritionist.

Veterans and Tower Gardens

"From Gunner to Gardener" - the story of Altius Farms is so inspirational. Vets are trained to become urban farmers and to grow sustainable, locally sourced food.

This farm is the largest vertical aeroponic rooftop greenhouse in the USA. In addition to growing excellent produce, the Memorial Towers project will help underwrite agricultural training for Vets. They plan to dedicate each of the Tower Gardens as a living memorial to a fallen soldier.
