Eating for Life

Yisrael Rutman

You may never have been on a diet, but you probably know people who have. Maybe your mother or father or bubby or zeidy. As people get older, they tend to put on weight — which can harm their health — and then go on a diet to lose weight. Or sometimes it’s just to look nicer. But there’s more to dieting than losing weight.

 

Mazel Brothers’ Superstore

“Grrr!” Leah said as she put another tomato on the counter. She lifted her knife and sliced the tomato in half. Or at least she tried to. Halfway through, her knife bounced against something hard. Weird, she thought, I never heard of a tomato with a pit in it.

 

In Color

Yisrael Rutman

Scientists say the human eye can recognize more than nine million different colors. It sounds like an awful lot. We lose track shortly after salmon and turquoise, but there’s no doubt that the human eye is sensitive to many colors, from aquamarine and asparagus to xanthic and zucchini.
