My third GREEN resolution is by far my toughest challenge. The microwave has been moved to the basement storage room, and the pantry is almost free of cans. We have successfully implemented our first two goals and have made the transition rather seamlessly.
The Third New Year’s Goes Greener Goal is to reduce the amount of processed/packaged foods we eat. Our normal diet consists of mostly foods as they are found in nature, WHOLE. But there are some items that we eat consistently that are somewhat processed/packaged. Crackers, granola bars, salad dressings to name a few. Although we buy the organic variety of said groceries, we still are finding that we rely on too many processed/packaged items.
Our first step toward this goal was to pick 3 things that we currently purchase and slowly transition to making them ourselves.
- granola bars
