Save the Avocado

What?!?! According to multiple news sources, if the President shuts down the border with Mexico we will be faced with an avocado shortage. Say it isn’t so.

The price of an avocado in my area is already high; depending whether or not you can score a sale. Over the past year the avocado has become a staple in my diet: avaocado with eggs, on burgers, on salads, on tacos…and the list goes on.

Apparently, according to media sources, we have about a three week supply left. Really? I find this disheartening; so much so because the avocado growing season hasn’t even really begun in California and is supposed to be meek,

So, with the possibility of an impending avocado crisis on the forefront, avoFresh has arrived just in time. avoFresh™ is designed to keep avocado dishes fresh for up to 7 days. Made with Vitamin C and Calcium Carbonate, avoFresh™ is OMRI-certified for organic use, and is naturally vegan, gluten-free and salt free. So, what are you waiting for?

Journey to a Healthier Home: Week One

Week One: Today I am stepping back and looking at all of the things in my kitchen that are unhealthy for the environment. It seems like a mountain and I will never reach the top. I am committed. Committed to contributing to make a difference: It takes a village. One motivating factor is my daughter has been accepted to live in the Sustainable Dormitory on campus. We can support one another. There are several groups out there I am researching and will share once I have a chance to thoroughly investigate. However, what I have found is most of these groups are in the European Nation. I guess we are behind the times.

If you have any suggestions or ideas, please, please, please leave positive comments. Please join this journey for a healthier home and healther planet.

Do Your Part for Planet Earth

This Sunday, April 22nd is Earth Day. A day we come together to clean up our parks and beaches; a day we pledge to be more mindful of our waste and use of plastics. A day some choose to plant a tree. The problem is it’s only a day. One day. It takes 30 days to change a habit.

Once Earth Day has come and gone, most of the population goes back to their careless habits of using plastics, not recycling and so on. I used to be part of the wreckless, the careless.

It took some time to change my habits and make a difference. But, since giving up the plastic, single use coffee pods and started storing foods in Mason Jars I feel better. Changing small things has increased my awareness of environmental issues big and small. Shown below is Ground Floor Farm, a local urban farm in Stuart, Florida. We had lunch on a covered patio right on the edge of the farm. It was a very eye opening experience.

Ground Floor Farm is a cozy farm to table restraunt. The menu varies depending on the season and what is “fresh”. Urban Farms are popping up everywhere; people are reclaiming the land and using it for sustainability to keep foods local, shortening the distance from food to fork. Check out a local Farmers Market or Urban Farm in your area you might be surprised at what you find. 

Whether it is recycling, changing to all LED Lightbulbs, reducing the use of plastics or whatever it may be; the challenge is to do something not for A DAY but, for at least 30 Days. Once you get through the first 30 days, a new habit will be formed, hopefully be continued and then you will know that you are doing your part.
