An Apple a Day

Sophie Uliano's Veggie Cleaner Spray


1 cup water
1 cup distilled white vinegar
1 tablespoon bicarbonate of soda
20 drops grapefruit seed extract
Combine all ingredients in a large container. Then, transfer to a spray bottle with a pump. Spray mixture on produce, and rinse thoroughly after 5 to 10 minutes.

From Oprah's Earth Day

First week back at school and the final term for the year. Little Wanna will be a big school next year. Then it will be lunch boxes and apples for everyone; a veritable process line on the kitchen bench and what a challenge that will be. A boy who won't eat any fruit except strawberries but is quite happy with Vegemite sandwiches. A girl who won't eat sandwiches and prefers a narrow range of hot noodles, pasta or rice in a thermos. Food that needs to stay fresh hanging in a school bag in a hot corridor all morning. Ice block coolers in insulated bags. Cupboards full of various shaped containers, dry foods, vacuum-packed foods, snack foods, cling films, lunch wrap and plastic straws. Then when they come home, there is only one tiny nibble on the corner of a sandwich round and you wonder how many times that apple can keep going between home and school.
