This is Day 56 of the Green in 365 series!
Some of us may have started our green living journeys by making changes to our cleaning or personal care products, while some of us may have started by switching to real food and now are moving to other areas of green living. Either way, I have learned over the last few years that choosing real food and being intentional about green living are interrelated.
I’m over at Keeper of the Home today (where I am a regular contributing writer again!), sharing 5 ways that green living and real food are connected.
From the post:
For our family, our journey toward real food began before I even really knew what real food meant. I first began to cook from scratch at home, using bulk ingredients, because I was trying to reduce our food packaging waste and avoid ingredients that I knew weren’t good for us.
I believe the issues surrounding sustainability and protecting the planet are just as important as the health considerations when it comes to our food choices. Sourcing produce locally, in season, and grown without the use of pesticides is more important to me than buying certified organic produce shipped from halfway around the world.
As we learn more about where our food comes from, and how it is produced, we see how the types of food we eat have a huge impact on the environment.
Head over to Keeper of the Home to read about 5 ways green living and real food are connected.
