Bag the Box Campaign
Every so often I find a company that doesn’t just talk the talk. I saw this as an ad on another blog and felt it needed highlighting as a truly eco-conscious company. Malt-O- Meal is a company that really stands up to their “green”record. I remember as far back as when I was a little girl, the bags of puffed wheat and rice. I also remember throwing a fit when my parents bought...

Meatless Monday: Zucchini and Potato Frittata
Frittatas are a quick and easy meal on any night of the week but make Meatless Mondays a snap. A frittata is really an unflipped omelette that is finished off in the oven. You can use any vegetables you have on hand and can make these with cheese or go dairy free without it. For my recipe I had some really good potatoes and lots of leftover zucchini and my ever present parmigiano so that’s...

10 Ways You are Rich
Even in times of financial uncertainty, perspective is important as well as keeping your balance. Wealth is the ability to fully experience life. - Henry David Thoreau You didn’t go to sleep hungry last night. You didn’t need to sleep outside. You had a choice of what to wear this morning. You hardly broke a sweat today. You didn’t spend a minute today in fear for your...

Meatless Monday: Penne with Roasted Vegetables
I like the simplicity of organic vegetables and pasta for a quick meal. Meatless Mondays are an absolute in our family (often much to the chagrin of my husband who is not much of a veggie lover) because cutting down on meat is a sound piece of the holistic health and nutrition puzzle. It is also a huge part in living an eco lifestyle. Going meatless even one day a week can reduce the carbon...

Spa for Ma Spotlight: SoTru Sun Repair
In a world gone mad with supplements for skin, one stands heads above the rest. SoTru Sun Repair is that supplement. I lived in the sun until my early 20’s when a 40 year old woman who looked about 80 made me take a look at my suntanning ways. Years later (not that many) I am starting to see the telltale signs of sun damage; uneven pigmentation and fine lines. SoTru Sun Repair has made the...

Straw House Great for the Environment
We’ve all the heard the story of the three little pigs. The big bad wolf comes to the houses of three pigs. The first pig builds his house out of straw. The second builds his house out of sticks. The third, and smartest pig, builds his house out of bricks. Up until this point it may seem like the first pig was the most foolish. What good will a house made of straw be? It can’t...

As summer creeps to a close we find ourselves outdoors enjoying the fading summer days with friends and family before the hectic back to school time begins. Recipes with organic natural food may become more challenging to find in the heat of an Indian summer. Coleslaw is a “go to” side dish for many families. I know, I know, BORING!!! This Meatless Monday I bring you a new take on an...
Living Off The Grid for One Year
This morning, Craig Leisher started sharing his family story on The New York Times Green Blog. The series of entries will see Craig and his family living off the grid in Maine for one year. Craig and his wife have moved their kids and family pets from the Jersey suburbs for the deep woods of Maine. It should be an interesting adventure and one definitely worth following. It also begs the...

Effects of Alcohol on Weight
People ask me all the time whether I forgo alcohol on my quest to eat organic and healthy. I don’t. Actually, I do like red wine and I adore champagne. Every once in awhile I will have a really good dry and dirty martini. I have cut dramatically back on the amount though. A glass of red wine or champagne or one martini (and that is only every once in awhile) will do me fine. My...

The Basic Guide to Living Green with Children
Kids are great. Every day is full of energy, surprise, and joy with kids around. They have a great curiosity about them and everything they do. They’re sponges for knowledge and if you’re ever been around kids for any amount of time you know they simply enjoy everything about life – except for perhaps bedtime. From my experience kids each have their own personality. Almost from birth...

Healthy Recipe: Lemon Rosemary Zucchini Bread
For some reason there is a bumper crop this year of zucchini everywhere I look. I am a big fan of grilled zucchini, fried zucchini and even zucchini gratin, but come on, how many ways are there to prepare it? There is one method of preparation where, when good, it is heavenly. When bad, it is a soggy mess. Luckily I have a very good recipe and some organic zucchini. A take on the classic zucchini...

Green Homes A Booming Business
The housing market is down? Not for builders that specialize in crafting green homes for clients. It seems more folks these days are conscious of the importance of living efficient and in harmony with their natural surroundings. As a result, builders are seeing great demand from folks looking to upgrade their current homes and looking to build new homes with an eye on keeping things green. The...

Meatless Monday: Baked Rosemary Mushroom Polenta
I have adored polenta since the first time I ever went to Florence, Italy and had it fried with a sage butter sauce. Truly heaven on a plate. Sealing the deal was being in Modena, Italy, the same trip, and having it creamy with arugula and balsamic sauce. For those of you who live in the South, you have grits, which is remarkably similiar. I would say it is just cornmeal but I think they do...

Lettuce Wraps with Salsa of Avocados and Tomatoes
The other day I was lucky enough to find avocados for the first time in a long time that were not way overripe and mushy. I paid a premium, of course, as they were marked organic but they were the only ones on the shelves that were not either liquefied or hard as rocks. Organic avocados are not a necessity as their skins are very tough, not absorbent and always peeled, but in this case, this was...
