Project Green Foot- Week 47

Another great adventure with little E at Runaway Creek Farm this past week. Chasing ducks and chickens, sitting on the tractor, playing with the dog, and eating lots and lots of cherry tomatoes. She loves it there- I think more than me. The one thing I absolutely love about the farm is how fresh all […]

Project Green Foot- Week 45 and 46

I am enjoying this part of the “vegetable and fruit season” in Quebec. More and more produce is slowly coming into season, which means there is more of a variety of foods in my diet! I am especially looking forward to when the peppers will be available at our local farm.  I am impatiently waiting. […]

Project Green Foot- Week 44

It is raspberries season, and I am so excited! I found another local farmer about 20 minutes from my place that sells freshly picked raspberries among other fruits and veggies. I was at my local natural food store when I saw the raspberries- there were California ones and local ones. No brainer on which ones […]

Project Green Foot- Week 43

Last week, I told you about the gem of a farm I found about an hour from my place, Runaway Creek Farm. Since J.P was on vacation last week he volunteered to visit the farm with me. I really wanted him to meet the owners and see for himself how beautiful the farm is. J.P. was […]

Project Green Foot- Week 42

We spent more money on food this week than usual. I found a gem of a farm about an hour north of us- Runaway Creek Farm. It really is perfect, and so beautiful. They have 5 grass-fed cows, 6 grass-fed pig, lots of chickens, bees and acres upon acres of grass and gardens. They are […]

Project Green Foot- Week 41

Our little E was sick this past week which made it feel like the longest week ever. We made sure to fill her up with lots of fruits and veggies to help her on her path to recovery. I made her a delicious raw carrot cake treat with an avocado-banana “icing” on top. She ate […]

Project Green Foot- Week 40

When I first began shopping at La Moisson, the natural food store near my house, it always bothered me that they repackaged their food in plastic bags. I have asked on a few occasions to why they use this method, but nobody could ever give me a straight answer. They always looked at me with […]

Project Green Foot- Week 39

I have mentioned in the past that there are not really any bulk stores in and around where we live, (at least not that I have found) to purchase nuts, seeds and dried fruit, which are all such a large part of our diet. I was lucky enough to find PranaBio, who sells all the […]

Project Green Foot- Week 38

This past week was most definitely bitter sweet! I am excited we are now closer to friends and family, but I am sad that our little American adventure has come to an end. We have spent the last 3 years living in the US, and have enjoyed every minute of it. I guess all good […]

Project Green Foot- Week 37

The one thing I was hoping to never purchase was disposable diapers. This past week, little E had a rash that was out of control, so we had to take her to see our naturopath. It was recommended that she wear a disposable diaper at night, so that we could slather Calendula diaper cream (contains […]

Project Green Foot- Week 36

I will get this out of the way now since I am being honest about our spending. I got a Blendtec. I have been eyeing them for over a year and a half, ever since I began eating raw. At that time, we decided to invest in a juicer and dehydrator because I already had a food […]

Project Green Foot- Week 35

Since we began Project Green Foot, we have celebrated a few holidays along the way. For the most part, all our friends and family have been supportive and respectful of our “no-waste gifts” theme, and we have been very appreciative of this. I think everyone knows by now how much I dislike creating waste, and […]
