Tips to Save Time, Money & Mother Earth From Your Kitchen

  • Grow your own food. Gardening is suprisingly easy, especially if you start from plants instead of seeds but of course buying seeds is much more cost-effective. For example, one organic zucchini plant cost me $4 but one package of about 50 heritage, organic, Zucchini seeds from a small supplier cost me only $2. Gardening is a fun activity to do with kids too. When my daughter was an infant I wore her in a front sling when I was in the garden, & when she started wanting to help more I gave her a little plastic shovel & she mixed the soil up beside me.
  • Not only can you make your own food but for those with little ones… make delicious fresh organic baby food for pennies. Pureeing baby food & packaging it in freezer trays for later is also a fun activity to do with bigger children.
  • If you can’t or prefer not to harvest your own do your gest to buy local & in season. You will save money, support your local farms & economy, & neighbors. You will also save on the emissionsthat the trucks give off bringing their lot from california or mexico to your super market.
  • When you need fresh produce & local is not available, buy organic! Organic is not only better for your health but better for the environment, saving the soil, the water supply, & the wildlife, just to name a few 😉
  • Make large batches of food with fresh ingredients or fully cooked dinners & freeze excess in BPA free freezer trays.
  • Note, if you freeze baby food & you find your baby doesn’t like that particular vegetable, don’t worry, adding those pureed veggies to tomatoe sauce, melted cheesees, & mashed potatoes works great for adding whole foods & vitamins to meals in a sneaky way.
