Today we picked carrots, beets, lettuce from our garden
I also purchased corn on the cob straight from the field, apricots u picked at an orchard and some beef steak tomatoes and rainer cherries off a roadside vender. Not much trash.

I made egg salad sandwiches for our picnic today . The eggs come from a farm up north that we drive an hour to get to but they are so fresh and taste better than any store egg. I did by the whole wheat seeded bread from a bakery. That would be all the only wrapped food we had.

Im in too, but I eat mostly from the garden, things that I have either canned or frozen or from scratch. I do buy my bread but it is a healthy one. How would we report this challenge?

I often block traffic in the grocery because I stop to read so many labels.

This week's challenge is about being mindful of the foods we purchase. Recently I went on a "no trash" diet, which in addition to making sure that everything I eat has nutritional value, also that it didn't come from a box or bag. Not only will you help the environment by lessening your "trash" footprint, it may help you curb snacking attacks!

Take a moment to go to the cabinet and see what you have in boxes. Pasta, we already know has no nutritional value. Wheat pasta is better, but a fresh salad is even better than that! I am not proposing that you do away with all the boxes and bags in your fridge, just that you take stock and see what you have, look at those labels for sugar and additives, and evaluate what you may want to change to improve your health and the health of your family.

Over the course of the week, see what you can do to substitute the foods that you buy pre-packaged with foods that you prepare yourself. With each meal, evaluate what 's in it and take a moment to reflect on how that food gets to you, such as where was it manufactured, and what the nutritional value is. Whether you are watching calories, carbs, fat, sodium, ect; it's good to take stock and really evaluate the food that you purchase and how you build your meals around it.


Everyone smiles in the same language.
