Chelsea Wheeler is a 10-year-old girl with a passion and a plan.

"I want to have a diner," she says, sitting on her bed in her parents' house in Oxford, Connecticut.

"I'd like to make things that people think are yummy healthier, less fatty, and make it like they're being cooked for the Queen."

Chelsea loves helping her parents, Chris and Linda, prepare food for the whole family. They say she spends much of her free time watching the Food Network looking out for new recipes.

But Chelsea cannot taste the food she makes. She can eat almost no food at all. She suffers from a rare disease that has caused her intestine to fail irreversibly.

Fruit and vegetable company Werder Frucht has to bring in additional workers these days or risk falling behind. But the workers are not busy selling the company's tomatoes: they are busy throwing red, ripe produce in the trash.

Workers empty crate after crate of vine-ripened vegetables into a giant garbage container on the company's premises in Werder near Berlin.

For the past four weeks - since an E. coli scare caused European consumers to all but abandon eating raw vegetables - demand in tomatoes has plummeted, says Petra Lack, Werder Frucht sales manager.
