Get organized. Eat less. Eat better. Move more. Get political. - Marion Nestle

We're like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy: sun, wind and tide. I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that. - Thomas Edison, in 1931

The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it. – Henry David Thoreau

To transport just one year's supply of out-of-state tomatoes to just one state, New Jersey, takes enough fossil fuel to drive an 18-wheeler around the world 249 times. - Anna Lappe, Diet for a Hot Planet

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction. - E.F.Schumacker

When you choose organics, you are voting with your fork for a planet with fewer pesticides, richer soil, and cleaner water supplies -- all better in the long run. When you choose locally grown produce, you are voting for conservation of fuel resources and the economic viability of local communities, along with freshness and better taste. - Marion Nestle

The fruitful uselessness of rest, play, and delight can begin on a Sabbath morning. Wake up, but do not get up. Do something delightful. Use your imagination, be frivolous, be daring. Invent rituals. Do nothing of significance. Cultivate expertise in Slotha Yoga. – Wayne Muller

It's Been Awhile!

But I'm still here, and the biggest news is: I've changed to a completely plant-based diet!

You should start to see a few recipes I've tried very soon. And detail on the why and how come this long-time part-vegetarian, part pesca-gal has finally jumped ship and eliminated all the animal products from her diet that she can think of...(oh, well, I still eat honey, but not a lot of it, because I love the bees and the bees should use their honey if it helps them survive).

I don't really get the notion of honey being a problem, anyway...maybe someone can explain it to me?

Culling 100 Things

No, I haven't forgotten! I'm doing this much more slowly than I'd wanted to, but my goal is still 100 things gone by Dec. 31, 2012.
I dragged this broken wicker rocker to the curb Wednesday morning, and it went along with my usual trash and recycling. I wasn't sad to see it go. It's been taking up precious basement real estate long enough.
Monday is a holiday for me. My next plan is the linen closet!

The Reverse 100-Thing Challenge

The Reverse 100-Thing Challenge is something I can do. I can't go the other way (live with 100 things) until I get rid of many 100s of things... So here I am, signing up. Join me?

Meatless Mondays, World Vegetarian Day, & Vegetarian Awareness Month!

World Vegetarian Day is today! That link will take you to their website where you can take the pledge to try vegetarianism for a day, a week, or the whole month! Since I've been doing Meatless Mondays for a long time now, I've pledged to move along the continuum to vegetarian for a week, with a goal to having at least a couple of vegan days this week. I've been reading The Starch Solution by Dr. John McDougall and I've really taken with the science. I hope I'll be able to make that change, even tho' it's pretty severe in my mind. Still, it makes good sense.

So what will you pledge to do?
