If you are a regular reader you will have noticed a distinct lack of posts in the past few months. On one hand I’ve been quite busy with other ventures, but for the most part I just lost my desire to write the sort of posts that Id been sharing. I’ve considered dropping the blog altogether, but some recent experiences (including the acquisition of a kick ass vegan cupcake book) have inspired me instead to blog about one topic that is dear to my heart. Edibles.
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.
Henceforth any posts will be from Green Me the Eco-Cooking Gal and they will be about my experiences making various edibles from scratch. If you get hungry and want to put the green stuff in your body put me in your RSS feed and get ready to play with food.
