Use fresh, whole foods

Put down the frozen, processed, low-cal, low-carb, low-fat franken foods! When I cook with just a few quality, fresh, whole ingredients, I find I am satisfied with a smaller portion. Nothing beats fresh produce, in-season, from a local farmer. Look for quality organic local meats and keep your costs down by reducing your portion sizes. You'll lose weight, put better fuel in your body, and support your local food systems, all at once.

Recycle, reduce, reuse

Recycle old phone books and reduce amount of trees needlessly ground up for paper towels which are a tool of the disposable society in which we live. Use phone book pages in place of paper towels to clean paint brushes before contaminating water with excess latex wall or fine arts acrylic paint.
