Happy Easter! We are wishing you and yours a joyous, happy and healthy Easter. There are many great reasons to dye your eggs naturally: –  If you avoid artifical food colorings normally, why go out of your way to put it on your food for a holiday? – While dying eggs naturally you won’t absorb […]

Spicy Sweet Potato Chips Recipe

We recently signed back up with Boston Organics after a few years away to eat more fresh, local and organic fruits and vegetables.  For those not familiar with Boston Organics, they are sort of a cross between PeaPod and a CSA.  Each week, they deliver a bin with mostly local organic fruits and vegetables to […]

How Green is Super Bowl 47?

Of course they say Super Bowl XLVII will be the greenest one ever.  They said the same thing last year too.  I’m all for progress, but let’s look at the green and not so green aspects of Super Bowl XLVII.

Vegetable Football Nachos

3 Ingredient Chocolate Fudge with Responsibly Sourced Chocolate!

I come from a family that makes cookies during the holiday season.  I have fond memories of my parents and siblings all working together to churn out batches and batches of cookies, particularly chocolate chip cookies.  I’m certain that’s when I learned to eat cookie dough, because once when I was in elementary school, one […]

Harvesting Trash Can Potatoes

Back in April we got the idea to plant potatoes in a garbage can from another green blogger, The Frugal Greenish Mama. Ellie & I planted our potatoes and blogged about the process.  Planting in a garbage can was really neat to try and a great way to expand the footprint of our garden. Now I have to tell you […]

Eating Green – What’s For Breakfast?

Yogurt & Granola As I scarfed down  my yogurt with granola this morning I thought about how eating healthy is part of living green and losing weight.  I was rushing to meet a friend for a toddler playdate, but I knew that I’d feel better and be healthier if I made sure I ate my […]
