Organic Manifesto

In the past few years, I've tried to move as green and healthy as possible in my life. Especially when I was really actively trying to live healthily. Then I met my mentor on my second internship (she's a healthy, gluten-free, yoga guru, amazing earth goddess!), and she inspired me to go even more organic and green as possible. Especially since having my gastric bypass, I've just tried to be more aware of what I'm putting into my body and how things affect my system. I've been trying to be working in my garden and choosing foods and products (pesticides) that are as close to organic as possible.



<~~~ Love that organically home grown pineapple? Yeah I did, too- don't worry, I shared. :)









Also, I stay away from plastic as much as possible. We must take better care of our planet. We have to take better care of ourselves, our children (the children of today have a SHORTER EXPECTED LIFESPAN THAN THEIR PARENTS). Sign Jamie Oliver's petition to help change school lunch programs!

So, the whole point here is that I was perusing Organic Gardening magazine online (this is on my to-get magazine subscription list, for sure) and came across this article about a woman who decided years ago to go "Green" and do the Organic thing, way before it was a fad. If you want her book get Organic Manifesto here.


Also blogged about here.

  5. That's interesting. I tried the pineapple thing and it didn't work. It just attracted fruit flies.
