Food is a delicious gift from planet earth. Celebrate Earth Day with a feast of flavor.
I offer you links to four recipes to eat your way through your Earth Day, including chocolate cake for dessert. But these recipes are a bit different than the standard. These recipes are designed to be action steps to building a healthy environment by encouraging us to reconsider our ingredients.
You will see words like organic, fair trade, dry farmed and pasture-raised. For example, the Stir-Fry recipe calls for organic tofu.While it may seem like no big deal to swap the conventionally grown tofu with the organic variety, it does make a difference to the quality of air, soil and water. Certified organic, non-GMO, fair-trade, and Demeter labels represent a food system that farms without chemicals, signaling to the eater that their food is grown using a system of farming Mother Nature intended.
Four meals alone are not going to save the planet, but you and I together will change the world with what we eat. Be an educated eater.
