As of late the idea of reducing my environmental footprint has really been on my mind. Not that I don't normally try to reducing my waste through only buying what I need instead of throwing half of my groceries into the garbage, I have a travel mug that I do my best to bring with me for my daily coffee needs and I have even started packing a reusable straw in my purse to reduce my reliance on single use plastics.
October has hit and fall is in full force. Up here in Canada most are getting ready to stuff our bellies with some turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing, but is there a way to healthy it up a bit and keep you on that healthy track.
Summer is when us Canadians venture into the outdoors to soak up wonderful Vitamin D, get tan lines, and use our grills. A lot of the time we tend to pick up hot dogs which are overly processed food, high in sodium, preservatives and other chemicals. We tend towards these food products because we think of them as more convenient, but there is often a more holistic whole food option out there that is just as easy to whip up for your family or a group of friends.
