You know when you really want something and have been thinking about it for a few days and when the time comes- no dice? Well, that is exactly how I felt on Friday at the farmers market. I was down to the last few cucumbers on Thursday, so I just threw them in my juicer […]
This past week was Canada Water Week, a week-long celebration of water from coast-to-coast-to-coast. This years theme was “Discover your water footprint.” What does this mean to you? A water footprint is that of an individual, community or business and equals the total volume of freshwater that is used to produce the goods and services […]
Isn’t it beautiful? Don’t you think everyone should have access to freshwater like that? How many of you have ever experienced water scarcity? The closest I have ever come is limiting when I can water my lawn or plants in the summer months. It is hard to believe that 884 million people lack access to […]
Wordless Wednesday, a simple post which features a photo to convey a message that speaks for itself without using words; well not a lot of words! It is Canada Water Week. Let’s conserve our precious resource.
The carrots at the farmers market are the biggest, fattest and most delicious carrots I have ever seen and tasted. I tend to buy a lot of them during the week because I enjoy juicing them. Carrot and apple or carrot and pear juice really are one of the most refreshing juices. I love the […]

My tally for Project Green Foot will be up tomorrow, March 13 instead of today. I will leave you with this green cartoon by Joe Mohr for some food for bought. Many people feel as though the message “The Lorax” is meant to portray has been lost in the shuffle with all the non-green advertising […]
Anyone that knows me well enough can attest to my deep love for carrots, which I will gladly eat all day, everyday in the raw, in a cake, bread, or salad- pretty much anywhere. A few weeks ago, I was craving something sweet, but not too sweet. Usually I can munch on a carrot and […]

We celebrate our friendships. We celebrate each other. MissRepresentation.org is a call-to-action campaign that seeks to empower women and girls to challenge limiting labels in […]
