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...

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 c...

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 becaus...

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 thi...

Project Green Foot- Week 34

As you all probably know by now, I love my local farmer at the market. When I like a product or company, I tend to be loyal to them. It is not different when it comes to the local famers at the market! I love his prices, his produce and his attitude,...

Project Green Foot- Week 33

I am asked frequently- how long does the food we purchase each week last? In general, the produce gets eaten within a week with some stragglers that need to be eaten the following week. Since we juice everyday, drink smoothies daily and eat lots of...

Project Green Foot Week 32

There are many reasons that I enjoy going to local farmers markets, but when a farmers goes that extra mile, it just makes you want to keep on going back every week. You see, the market I go to has the option to pay with a credit card, if you so choo...

Project Green Foot- Week 31

This past week we went out to eat a little more often than usual because J.P’ parents were visiting and we spent the week-end in Austin. I did pack snacks to avoid purchasing prepackaged foods and I did of course have our to go goodie bag hand...

Project Green Foot- Week 30

Before this week-end, I had never eaten food from a truck. The stigma that is attached to it is meat on a stick and crappy food. Texas is big on food trucks. They have food truck parks everywhere. There is actually one walking distance from my place.

Project Green Foot- Week 29

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 thr...

Project Green Foot- Week 28

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 t...

Project Green Foot- Week 27

I was disappointed with our CSA basket this week. It just seems they threw a bunch of random fruits and veggies in a basket with little though. I am pretty sure the only thing local was the tomatoes. We decided we are going to cancel our CSA basket a...

Project Green Foot – Week 26

I love farmers markets and everything they have to offer, but when I think of them it is usually in the summer months. The weather in Fort Worth has been beautiful lately, so I decided to google “farmers market in Arlington” and was pleasantly su...

Project Green Foot- Week 25

I pampered myself this week and went and got my hair done at a local salon that use Organic Color Systems. I love the look of my hair and am very pleased with the results. It is on the expensive side, but it is one of the only thing I indulge in and...

Project Green Foot- Week 24

We are heading into the half way mark of our waste-free project and I am very pleased again with how little trash we created this past week. I feel we are creating less and less waste as the weeks go on. It is becoming second nature and I I believe o...

Project Green Foot- week 23

I am very pleased with how little trash we created this past week. When we stopped at Chipotle (yes, 3 times), I was able to use my glassware every single time, and two of our stops were at restaurants we had never frequented before. After explaining...

Project Green Foot- week 22

This week, I took my compost to Whole Foods for the first time, and it did not go as well as planned. When I had originally asked about composting, the women working at customer service told me just to put my compost in a bag and than place it in...
