What would be a resolution, be it New Year’s, Earth Day, or Birthday, without it having something to do with eating habits, diet, or losing some extra pounds? It just seemed like the natural choice for our first Earth Day resolution to have something to do with food. Green food that is, but food nonetheless.
This Earth Day, why not resolve to Go Green, and I mean literally. Promise yourself that you will make an effort to eat more locally grown greens, fruits and other colored vegetables. In addition, start making organic food choices when local options may not be available.
By supporting your local farmers markets and agricultural services, you will contribute to a reduction in the amount of fuel needed to transport the food to your home. In addition, the more nutritious your diet, the better you will look and feel and the greener you will be.
In honor of Earth Day 2008, make a pledge to: Buy Local, Eat Organic, and Go Green! Green-up your food choices (and, may I add that Green M&Ms do not count!) to become healthier while simultaneously helping our environment.
