Chose a diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables, beans, grains, nuts, seeds, and spices.
Eat foods in their most basic form. Unprocessed, unrefined, no artificial ingredients. Make things from scratch whenever possible.
Eat things that make you feel great. Focus on what works for your body. Cook as many meals for yourself from scratch, as often as you can. It is an investment into your health and longevity!
Support local farmers who put in the time and effort to grow organic produce, safe for you, our Earth, and for those who are farming it. Be mindful of where your food comes from, how long it took to get to where you are, and what that says about the ingredients.
Eat foods in their peak growing seasons. They will be in their freshest, most delicious, and nutritious form.
Grow your own food. Learn what goes into growing organic, nutritious produce! Use heirloom seeds from seed saver companies that have been working to preserve history.
The nutrients in produce come from nutrients in our soil!
Start composting or vermicomposting. Reduce food waste while enriching soil, increasing plant yield, and suppressing plant diseases and pests (Sherman, 2017).
Utilize every part of your food. Vegetable peels for stock or almond pulp for crackers.
Stop and think about where things will end up after you are finished with them. Buy in bulk to reduce packaging waste. Use glass containers and paper bags as much as possible. Your recycling bin should fill up before your trash bin!
Share your knowledge of eating mindfully along with recipes and traditions.
Share your life with those you love over food.
Share your blessing of abundance with those who need it.
