Kernza, winter camelina, and pennycress – you may be farming these in the future

Forever Green, an initiative out of the University of Minnesota, is developing new crops for farmers that achieve conservation outcomes and provide additional revenue. At the heart of the initiative is the concept of growing continuous living cover (CLC) with perennial, annual, and native woody crops that have a market to be sold into. The types of crops accommodate relay cropping and double-cropping in the Upper Midwest. They include some familiar names: alfalfa, Kernza, perennial flax, winter barley, pennycress, and more.

To be fair, there's no one-size-fits-all method to bowel regularity. Pooping anywhere between three times a day and three times a week is relatively normal, according to the Mayo Clinic. And while one mostly-solid brown poop per day is ideal, frequency and quality can vary for several reasons. In short: Each person's situation is unique. So if you're noticing that your specific bathroom routine feels a little bit "off schedule," we asked RDs to break down what you should eat, drink, and do to poop more regularly.
