Family Green Survival

EatingGreen™

Eating Green
Mother’s Day for Mother Earth™
Eating Green will save gasoline, electricity and cooking gas, all used to commercially process, transport, and cook the food we eat; as well as reduce the packaging waste – glass, plastic, paper, and metal.

Based on the adage: “Think Globally, Act Locally,” the program asks that you pledge to eat one day a month only raw ‘green’ foods – foods that have been minimally processed after harvesting — only ‘raw’ vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, honey, and water from the tap. Eating Green will save energy – electricity and gas – used to commercially process and transport foods, as well as for home and restaurant cooking. Eating Green reduces the waste produced by processed food packaging – glass, plastic, paper, and metal.

 

Eating Green one day a month provides you and your family a degree of personal commitment to the global cause of ‘green living.’ The rules for Eating Green are:

  • All food is eaten raw, choose foods that have been minimal processed and shipped after harvesting; visit local or nearby farmer’s markets
  • No wood or charcoal fires, gas burners, or barbeques
  • No electrical appliances – micro wave oven, blender, juicer, coffee maker, stove, or oven. Use only mortar, pestle, and manually operated devices
  • No disposable plates, cups, napkins, paper towels, or plastic utensils
  • No bottled water, no soft drinks, no alcohol, no coffee or tea; this is the opportunity to drink just water or hand squeezed juices
  • Minimal TV, telephone, and computer use; it’s a day to reflect, talk, walk, exercise, garden, sing, dance, relax, and frolic

It might seem to be a difficult change to make, but once you have made the change, you will be surprised at the benefits of reduced cost, saved time, waste reduction, and a feeling of well being. Remember, you and your family will be making a statement that you do care about our beautiful planet.

Participants in the program will receive well tested recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and desserts.
