We Are What We Eat

We eat every day. We put things in our mouths every day (some of us more than others). And, when it comes down to chemistry (and biology) we really are what we eat. On a daily basis my efforts to green my family and to ultimately “Green Me” revolve around edibles.

Cutting meat out of our diet (or at the least drastically cutting back) makes a huge impact on the environment. Vegetable based protein — even when trucked cross country — results in the production of significantly fewer pollutants and green houses gasses than the production of meat. Whole grains are better for your body and when prepared correctly, are much more satisfying than a refined to pieces slice of white bread. Cooking from scratch is good for your wallet, good for your body and good for the planet. And that is what I am all about. ~ Alison (Green Me)
