Healthy Food Options That Are Good for the Environment!

Looking for healthy food options for your family that are environmentally friendly? Here are some ideas!

  • Shop the local outdoor farmer's market for fresh berries. Dip the berries in raw, organic honey and Greek yogurt, put on wax paper and freeze for a tasty snack.
  • Upgrade your favorite spices. Ditch the chemical fertilizers and plant pesticides. Invest in organic for those you use the most. Whole ginger root is a fraction of the price compared to powdered. Buy a root and cut into 1-inch cubes, then freeze.
  • Improve your oil. Don't cook with GMO oils. The best options are virgin coconut oil, olive oil (for low-temp cooking only) and Malasyian sustainable palm oil. Malaysian palm fruit oil is non-GMO, heat stable and supports a healthy lifestyle. It’s a rich source of tocotrienols and good-for-you saturated fats. It also supports a sustainable environment for animals in Malaysia.

Here's to your health!
