Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful holiday season with your family and friends. I also hope that you will make just one small change to your lifestyle in 2010 to take better care of your family and our planet. Whether you switch to cloth napkins or purchase "green" cleaners when whatever you are using now runs out, or maybe you're expecting a new baby and you're going to use gDiapers or cloth or even just chlorine-free disposables... each single small step makes a difference. What will your small step be?
Need some ideas related to the food you eat? Check out Organic Rising, a site I just discovered and a wealth of information about organic foods. This site, sponsored by the Organic Valley Family of Farms offers information about just what "organic" means, recipes, and more.
Another thing I'm excited about, regarding food, is my newest cookbook I received for Christmas --Simply in Season. For those of us trying to do better about eating locally and in season, this book is wonderful! The recipes are broken down into sections based on the four seasons and the foods that are available at those different times. I can't wait to start trying some out this week. Lots of soups this time of year -- yummy!
Remember, reader, I'd love to hear your responses and additions to my thoughts, so please comment.
