I personally use New Chapter Organics Probiotics. I know there are many other reputable brands on the market, so I am just sharing what I use. I use them because several of my health mentors have made the suggestion of using this brand in the past.

Probiotics... can you tell me which brand you are using and your opinion on it. I have some recipes that use probiotics however this is something that I have never purchased previously and would like advise from our RFR angels. Thanks!

Yes, I can get jicama here in Taiwan. It does go with many things, and is especially good in salads. Will the consistency won't work with other recipes though?

Hi Tonya
Not sure where you are. Can you get jicama where you are? It is a mild type of huge radish that is sort of the color of a potato. It tastes kind of sweet, but not strong on flavor. It easily goes with anything that it is mixed with because of its mild flavor.

Hi, I am looking for some ideas for substitutes for zucchini/yellow squash. While it is abundant back in the States, I just can't get it here and soooo many of the raw recipes I want to make call for it. Also, I can get chinese eggplant, but not italian. Any suggestions would be appreciated :)

That is raw Okra. I have yet to try it raw. I love the way it looks when it is sliced. When they are whole, they look a bit like a skinny jalapeno pepper with fuzz on it. The picture in Penni's slideshow at the following link gives you a bit of an idea of what longer pieces look like:
And this one shows how pretty it looks in a salad:
Penni had info about raw okra, but I cannot find it now. Perhaps you can. I think the title was, "Can you eat raw okra?"

Carrots, as most root vegetables, have a pretty good life span. As long as they aren't dried out, limp or moldy, they are fine to use. They are most nutritious when they are freshly pulled from the garden, but retain nutrients for weeks. I'll see if I can get some real statistics on this sort of information.....I think it would be helpful for all of us.

how long can carrots last in the fridge?? I found a bag of carrots in my fridge and don't know how long they have been in there. They are still crispy and look fine.

thanks Penni! As far as I know they CSA pick the produce fresh every week. I should email them

Here is the link for the bags I use to keep produce fresh.
