Gracie Cavnar has done more to teach our children how to eat healthy through her Recipe For Success Foundation and Seed-to-Plate Nutrition Education than the government’s food pyramid ever has. Now, her first of three books, Eat It! Food Adventures with Marco Polo, makes learning about, growing and cooking healthy food an attractive alternative to chicken tenders. Cavnar is a life-long cook and gardener who has spent 14 years growing her healthy and thriving Recipe For Success, which will get an added bump now: She has donated the rights to and proceeds from the book to her foundation. $19.99 at recipe4success.org and in bookstores.
