Two really helpful food sites.
How did we ever live without these?
Instead of running out to buy the ingredients you need for a recipe- why not cook up what you already have on hand? Supercook is a search engine that finds recipes you can make with the ingredients you have at home. Simply list ingredients you have in your fridge, garden and pantry. They recommend the recipes. Super idea!!!

I did a search to see if you can freeze mozzarella- and found this site.
Those of you who wonder if you should refrigerate oranges will find it interesting. Informs us as to where this or that; should be stored, and if this or that; can be frozen. According to the US Health Department, approximately 25% of the food Americans buy goes to waste. Hopefully this site will have some affect on that number.
Also like www.allrecipes.com because you can save your own recipes (or others) on the site. Albeit you must copy and paste them there, and slip them into a folder, but then you have your own on-line recipe box.

Also of interest are MPCs. Milk Protein Concentrate is de-fatted, ultra-pasteurizated, ultrahomogenized, ultrafiltrated (UF), unregulated, powdered skimmed milk. Many manufacturers are using MPCs in their dairy products instead of real milk. Why? Because MPCs are a cheap and easy way to add a filling, stable protein into a product. Although MPCs do add protein, it is a very processed form. Are MPC's hurtful to the local food movement? Yes, as this dried, spoil resistant product takes less to transport than the fresh liquid milk, companies are choosing this processed powder over fresh milk.
Eating 'less' meat and dairy is the best way to reduce emissions. But know that, less dense cheeses produce fewer greenhouse gases since they take less milk to produce. Cottage cheese, ricotta, cream cheese, part-skim or fresh mozzarella, gouda, feta, muenster and non-fat yogurt are all more earth-friendly choices, especially if organic.
