Many people know that most plants get their food from the sun through a process called photosynthesis. However, carnivorous plants are much less common. These plants have adapted to eating animals because they weren't getting the proper nutrients needed for them to grow. In this book, readers will learn about a number of carnivorous plants, including the Venus flytrap, where they're found, when they flower, and their anatomy. Learning about these unique members of the plant kingdom will excite young botanists and average readers alike.

In this second volume, Shari and Doug add to where they left off in their first cookbook, Eat Plants Love: Recipes for a Good Life. This new volume contains recipes from the Schmidts and also includes recipes from participants in the annual Good Life Challenge. Using new ingredients and techniques, this volume will help you make delicious, plant based comfort foods to add to your healthy meal repertoire. Doug had a heart attack at age 49. Wanting to avoid another heart attack, Doug and his wife Shari, sought information that changed their lives. Over a decade later, Doug is off of all medications and lost 60 pounds and ran his first marathon. What began as a goal to help prevent Doug from having future heart attacks has led them to now help others. They found out that not only does a plant based lifestyle prevent and reverse heart disease, the leading killer of 1 in 3 Americans, it also helps with type 2 diabetes, autoimmune issues, kidney disease and most chronic diseases from which Americans suffer. It even helps fight some cancers such as breast, prostate and colon cancer. They are now on a mission to help as many people as possible take control of their health and to live a rich and full life. In January 2018, they created and lead a 10 day plant based health health initiative for 1300 staff members from 35 different school districts and were featured on Good Morning America. In January 2020 they ran the challenge again. The number of participants exceeded 3800. What participants have said about Doug and Shari's 10 Day challenges: "Timing is everything. I had scheduled a physical months ago before knowing about this 10 day rescue. So Monday I had blood work done and I just now got my results. My cholesterol was 194 in 2014. Today it is 133. I am not on statin drugs. I just changed my diet. Whoa!" "I joined the challenge to start healing my body from the inside out. It wasn't about giving up food but just eating more of the right foods. This way of eating is by far the healthiest. Once you get over the detox of not having sugar, you begin to feel energized. So thankful for Doug and Shari Schmidt who have challenged and supported us all, every step of the way."

This book is available in COLOR edition, B&W edition and Kindle edition. See www.honda-e.com/ea.htm This is an introductory book on carnivorous plants for a young audience. Ages 7-9. Grades 2-4. These are unique plants found in bogs and swamps. The soils where they grow are very poor in nutrition. In order to survive in these hostile environments, some plants have acquired an ability to catch and digest insects and other bugs. There are over 700 kinds of flowering plants that possess this meat-eating habit. These plants are collectively known as carnivorous plants because of their unique lifestyle. Carnivorous plants are found worldwide. Some grow widely while some are restricted to a small area. For instance, Venus flytraps grow wild only in coastal North & South Carolina in the United States. There are four major types of traps used by carnivorous plants: Snap trap (Venus flytrap), pitfalls (pitcher plants), flypaper traps (sundews & butterworts), and suction traps (bladderworts). You will learn each of these trapping mechanisms as you read along. Just as plants need to attract pollinators to their flowers, carnivorous plants need to attract prey to their deadly traps. In order to achieve this, many carnivorous plants disguise their traps with brilliant colors and sweet nectar, just like real flowers. Often, this trick is so effective that insects visit the trap in the same manner they do flowers, and are captured and eaten! Did you know that you have to touch Venus flytrap's trigger hair, not once, but twice to close the trap? Venus flytraps catch and eat only large, worthy bugs, and tiny bugs are let go. How many times do you think you can trick a Venus flytrap's trap with your finger before it stops responding? All these and more are described in detail in the book. This is an informative natural science book filled with many vivid images accompanying the text. This book takes you to the natural habitats of North America where many carnivorous plants grow wild. This is a good reference book for a school science project. Enjoy!
