As a longtime The Daily Green blogger, on the occasion of the publication of my second book, The Conscious Kitchen, Im using my “Ask An Organic Mom” space for the next 8 weeks give or take to invite you to join me on the Conscious Kitchen Challenge.
What does it mean to have a Conscious Kitchen? It’s a little different for every person, but at its heart, it means knowing where your food comes from, what it is, and how good it is (or isn’t) for you and for the environment. It also encompasses the energy it takes to cook, what you’re cooking on and storing food in, and even how you clean up and handle waste.
We all know we need to be eating better foods local, organic, local and organic, humanely raised meat, wild and well-caught fish, packaged foods containing five pronounceable ingredients or less but theyre not always so easy to find. Or its not always so easy to motivate to find them. Think of this like you think of New Years resolutions. Choose your own personal goal make it attainable for better success and then together well methodically get you there. Keep in mind that any conscious steps are better than no conscious steps 10 percent is better than no percent.
